SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Music superstars Selena Gomez and The Weeknd appear to have a budding romance.
The 24-year-old American singer and 26-year-old Canadian star got close Tuesday in Santa Monica, Calif., following The Weeknd's split from model Bella Hadid.
Gomez and The Weeknd, born Abel Tesfaye, were spotted making out outside Giorgio Baldi restaurant, according to TMZ. The "Hands to Myself" singer was all smiles as she put her arms around The Weeknd and pulled him in for a kiss.
The new romance may cause awkwardness for Gomez, who is close friends with Hadid's sister, Gigi Hadid. The Weeknd and Hadid called it quits in November after nearly two years of dating.
"Their schedules have been too hard to coordinate and he is focusing on finishing and promoting his alum," a source told People at the time. "They still have a great deal of love for one another and will remain friends."
