A new celebrity couple is starting to form and with it has come a lot of controversies! EOnline.com reported that Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are in a new relationship despite both of them having recent celebrity exes. “At first, Selena and Abel wanted to keep their relationship a secret,” a source said. “But they’ve decided they really don’t care if everyone knows about them.” A second source added, “Selena was focusing on getting herself back together and Abel was just getting out of a relationship, plus putting out his new album. Abel and Bella also were on and off towards the end of their relationship, so getting into something brand new was not what Abel was looking for.”  Apparently, the Weeknd has always thought Gomez was extremely talented and beautiful, so it isn’t a complete surprise to see the two of them together!

This new celebrity couple isn’t holding back! What are some reasons to go public with your new relationship right away?
