Since 2011, the high profile couple has broken up and made up more times than the pair have hit records between them. They dated on and off for three years but split for good in 2014 (or so we thought). In October 2017, they started hanging out again and just days later Selena broke up with her then-boyfriend The Weeknd. Since then it’s been all on and all in for the two…until now.
Right now the two are “taking time” apart and have not declared an official split, although Selena is reportedly in Texas “clearing her head.”
While she does that, the world is waiting with bated breath to see what will happen to the make-up/break-up duo this time around. Can they finally make it work?
Let’s take a look through the couple’s relationship ever since the rumors started swirling last year that the two rekindled their former flame…
Oct. 25, 2017: E! News confirmed the pop singers recently spent time together at Selena’s Los Angeles pad, but it wasn’t the first time they crossed paths. A source revealed the former lovebirds had hung out “a few times” since Selena underwent kidney transplant surgery sometime before mid-September.
At the time, E! News was told Justin and Selena were “just friends” and “nothing romantic is going on” between the twosome.
Oct. 29, 2017: Justin and Selena reunited for breakfast at JOi Cafe in Westlake Village, California, a suburb northwest of Los Angeles. A source told E! News at the time that the two looked “friendly.”
TMZ posted a photo of the two sitting at a small square table. Selena and Justin both had what appear to be bottles of spring water sitting in front of them, while he also had an iced coffee. They were later spotted attending church services, sitting with the pastor.
At the time, a source told E! News that The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, was understanding of the situation.
Oct. 30, 2017: Apparently Abel wasn’t so understanding. One day later, E! News confirmed the duo—who started dating in January 2017—decided to go their separate ways, and it was a decision that was a long time coming. In fact, a source tells us they’d been discussing the fate of their relationship since the summer.
“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 insider told us. “They have been open and honest about it and where they were going. Distance definitely played a factor.”
