Cape Town – Selena Gomez and The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, have called it quits on their 10 month relationship.

E! News confirmed the couple, who started dating in January, decided to officially end things and that their separation had been a long time coming.

A source said: “It's been hard for them to come to the realisation that this is the direction things were heading, but it's been hard for months.

“They have been open and honest about it and where they were going. Distance definitely played a factor.”

Abel and Selena have spent less time together in the coming weeks with the Fetish singer filming in New York and the Starboy hitmaker on tour.

The break-up news comes almost immediately after Selena was spotted reuniting with Justin Bieber. The exes were most recently spotted having breakfast before going to church together.
