New couple Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have been spotted taking a break in one of the world’s most romantic cities. The two strolled around Florence seeing the sites, including the Academia Gallery Museum where they saw Michelangelo’s David.
Selena, 24, was dressed up for her date in a floaty, floral frock, which she wore with white heels and a long black coat, while pulling her hair up into a bun. The Weeknd, meanwhile, kept things casual in black jeans and a blue jacket. Their cultural tour came after a spot of shopping in the Santo Spirito Square, where they were also seen having lunch.
The new couple decided to go public with their relationship after they were spotted dining together at the end of last year. However, they first met at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show when The Weeknd was said to have felt an instant attraction to the Hands To Myself singer.
The Weeknd was previously in a relationship for 18 months with the model Bella Hadid. Selena has since faced criticism for breaking a so-called “girl code,” because Bella was understood to have been in her friend’s circle, but the former child star has since said that she only knew her in passing. A source said that while Selena was friendly with Bella and her sister GiGi, she was not actually friends with them, as she only knew them as acquaintances. It is believed that while Selena thought The Weeknd was cut when they first performed together at the Victoria’s Secret show more than a year ago, she certainly would not make a move while he was still in a relationship.
However, according to sources, Bella is still not over The Weeknd and was devastated when reports emerged showing him and Selena getting close to each other.
