Looks like The Weeknd isn't revisiting his romance with Selena Gomez through his new music after all.
According to the ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) website last Tuesday, the song title "Like Selena" was recently registered and listed The Weeknd's real name, Abel Tesfaye, as both a writer and performer. However, the website has since taken the page with that information down. The song title raised eyebrows, given that the singer dated Gomez in 2017 for 10 months before they split in October of that year.
The Weeknd got fans excited last Monday, when he teased that he would be dropping new music. He wiped out his Instagram and shared a blurry black-and-white pic with the caption "the fall starts tomorrow night." On his Instagram Story, he shared the same image -- which appears to be a close-up of a face wearing sunglasses -- and wrote, "tomorrow night we start again." He followed up that post with a picture of his 2016 album, Starboy. He then dropped two new songs, "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights."
"It wasn't going to last," the source said of the two singers' relationship. "During the kidney stuff, Selena really relied on her friends as opposed to The Weeknd. He just wasn't really available to drop everything he had going on to be with her full-time. He was supportive and sweet of course, but it was really a journey with her and her friends."
The source said Gomez's friends were also not a fan of the 29-year-old singer.
"They never really liked him," the source said. "He's not a part of the church group and didn't really mesh with her friends. And at this point, those friends and her faith mean everything to her."
