Keeping up with Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, the Weeknd, and Bella Hadid’s Instagram drama
Being in a love square is a tricky thing. All right, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, the Weeknd, and Bella Hadid aren’t exactly at odds romantically (we don’t think), but the foursome certainly has some interesting — OK, very confusing — behavior on Instagram.
Here’s a brief rundown for those who need a refresher…
A month after Hadid and the Weeknd split up, the “Starboy” rapper moved on with Gomez. The Victoria’s Secret model was not pleased and unfollowed both of them on Instagram. Gomez and the Weeknd ended their relationship in October after 10 months together, and before you could say “Jelena,” she was already back together with Bieber, whom she’s dated on and off since 2010. Now it’s been reported that the Weeknd and Hadid are hanging out again after he was photographed leaving her apartment in New York last week.
Did you get all that?
It seems like everything should be right in the young Hollywood universe now that Jelena is back on and the Weeknd and Hadid might be back on, but that’s not the case. We’re more puzzled than ever, given their recent social media behavior.
On Nov. 9, a couple of weeks after it was revealed that they split, Gomez liked a photo that the Weeknd posted wishing French Montana a happy birthday. The move came after he unfollowed Gomez’s family and friends — but not her — post-split. Extending an Instagram olive branch, perhaps?
After all, Gomez and Bieber have not been subtle that they rekindled things.
Ironically, at French Montana’s birthday party that night, the Weeknd ended up getting cozy with one of Bieber’s former flames, Yovanna Ventura. A few days later, reports surfaced that the “Can’t Feel My Face” crooner was rebounding with Hadid; and at some point around this time, Gomez unfollowed the Weeknd on Instagram. Gasp! To make matters more confusing, she has yet to follow Bieber.
Last weekend, Gomez stepped out at the American Music Awards debuting a new blond ’do for her first performance in a year and the first since her kidney transplant. She received lots of double-taps from her celebrity pals, but a confusing one from her beau. Bieber, who has yet to follow Gomez on Instagram, liked and then unliked a photo of her posted by a fan account.
One person who hearted a photo of the “Wolves” singer? Drumroll please, Bella Hadid. The model liked a photo of Gomez’s new look that was posted by IMG Models.
So yeah, the last week has been a head-scratcher with these four. Somehow, we have a feeling the drama isn’t over.
Justin Bieber, where you at with a good ol’ Jelena post when we need you?
