Earlier today, People Magazine confirmed the news that Selena Gomez and The Weeknd had officially called it quits after almost ten months of dating. The sad news for the couple followed reports that Selena and her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, were spotted enjoying brunch and going to church together in the last week.
Now, The Weeknd AKA Abel Tesfaye has taken to Instagram to share his first photo since the news broke. Sharing a mirror-selfie from his hotel room in Toronto, where he is currently touring his Starboy: Legend of the Fall tour, he looked to be coping fine with their break-up.
"Toronto Nights ⚡️" he simply captioned the snap.
Abel's post went up just hours after news broke, so naturally fans began flooding his comments section with questions about his now ex-girlfriend and - of course - Justin. Despite the interest, neither Selena or Abel have spoken out about the news.
"You don’t need her!!! You can do so much better! 😘" wrote one fan.
"Selena will always love justin bc he was her first true love," wrote another.
According to a source, it was the duo's conflicting work schedules that ultimately led to the split.
“She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship,” a source told People. “It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”
“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,” the source continued.
