The Weeknd instigated the breakup with Selena Gomez, Gossip Cop can confirm. Gomez’s rekindled friendship with Justin Bieber, however, had nothing to do with the R&B singer’s decision to end his romance with the actress.

As Gossip Cop reported, Gomez and The Weeknd recently split after nearly a year of dating. The pair wasn’t seen together much during the summer, though it was later revealed the Gomez was laying low due to her kidney transplant. Regardless, she and The Weeknd still appeared to be going strong in the early fall. Prior to the news of their breakup, the status of their relationship was questioned after Gomez and Bieber were reported to have been hanging out again.

On Sunday, speculation about a split heightened when Bieber and Gomez were photographed in public at the same The Weeknd stopped following her friends on social media. Bieber, however, was not responsible for the breakup. Rather, it was the challenges of a long-distance relationship, particularly with The Weeknd touring and Gomez’s shooting schedule, that led the couple to reconsider their fizzling romance.

Also contributing to their split was that The Weeknd felt “tied down” in a relationship that had lost its spark. Over time, the pair spoke less frequently on the phone, prompting The Weeknd to end his romance with Gomez, reports TMZ. Despite their breakup, we’re told Gomez and The Weeknd are still on good terms and have talked several times since the split.

Predictably, after the R&B singer ended the relationship, Gossip Cop had to bust the often disproven HollywoodLife for claiming in a made-up report that The Weeknd was “heartbroken” over Gomez reconnecting with Bieber. In that fabricated story, the blog falsely asserted The Weeknd and Gomez were caught in a “love triangle” with Bieber, but, as noted above, the “Love Yourself” singer did not cause nor did he have anything to do with the breakup.
