Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have reportedly broken things off after dating for about 10 months.

Gomez and the “Starboy” singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, have apparently been drifting apart for months and eventually realized that their relationship was reaching its end, sources told People.

“She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship,” an insider revealed. “It’s been hard for them to come to the realization that this is the direction things were heading, but it’s been hard for months.”

With The Weeknd on tour and Gomez shooting a movie in New York, the power couple ran into an issue many celebrity duos do–conflicting schedules. That was also the reason Tesfaye and ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid ended up breaking up a little more than a year ago. (RELATED: Watch The Victoria’s Secret Angels Music Video For The Weeknd’s ‘I Feel It Coming’)

In addition to that, Gomez has been spotted with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber on multiple occasions over the past week. While People’s source denies that Gomez is getting back together with Bieber, the reports couldn’t have helped her situation with Tesfaye.

Two things we do know for sure though is that the power couple split will likely result in some great music – and Selena Gomez won’t be single for long.
