… And they said it wouldn’t last.
Over three months since Selena Gomez was first spotted kissing The Weeknd and cozying up to her fellow singer in public, the controversial couple has taken its romance to the next level.
Oh, yes, people:
These two are now Instagram official.
Taking followers by surprise early on Saturday, The Weeknd shared the following sweet photo of his girlfriend giving him a kiss on the cheek.
He didn’t include a caption with the image, but that’s okay; fans have been more than happy to supply their own commentary.
“AWEEEEE OMGGG IM CRYING THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR A SELFIEEEEE OF THE COUPLE,” one Internet wrote of the picture, while another added:
“MOM AND DADDY… this pic [gave] us global heart attack we loving it.”
And another: “GOALS ASF.”
On Friday night, a few hours before this photo was taken we presume, Gomez and The Weeknd attended a birthday party for Canadian rapper Belly.
The star-studded event — held at a private residence — also included such famous guests as Drake, French Montana, Big Sean, Ashlee Simpson, Evan Ross and Amber Rose.
According to a People Magazine insider, the stars “remained playful and affectionate all night,” even “whispering to one another and smooching.”
The witness went on to say that their “lip-locking never stopped.”
It’s been quite a ride for Gomez and The Weeknd.
The former received quite a bit of backlash after first getting together with the latter, considering The Weeknd and Bella Hadid had only recently broken up after a two-year long relationship.
Selena and Bella are decent friends and sources have confirmed that Gomez never ran the relationship by her pal.
Hadid reportedly found out about the dating situation via the World Wide Web. Ouch, right?
Since then, Hadid has stopped following Gomez on Instagram and Selena have been the subject of criticism online.
Elsewhere, ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber scoffed at the relationship, allegedly claiming it was a pure PR move meant to boost Selena’s career.
If that’s the case, however, Gomez is pretty darn committed to the set-up.
She has been getting closer and closer to The Weeknd over the past several months and may even move in with her boyfriend at some point in the near future.
“Selena is going to be putting up the money for the house, and she’s going to spare no expense,” Life & Style wrote in February, adding at the time:
“They’re looking in Bel Air, Holmby Hills and Malibu. She wants a big backyard where they can host get-togethers with friends, and she’d love a pool so she can go skinny-dipping with Abel.”
This really is serious!
Neither Gomez nor The Weeknd has commented on their relationship.
But the Instagram photo above pretty much says all we need to know, doesn’t it?
This romance is not going anywhere any time soon.
Sorry, Bella and Justin. Best learn to come to grips with it at some point.
