When we first learned that Selena Gomez is dating The Weeknd, the relationship was widely dismissed as a fling.
Selena was fresh out of rehab; The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) was fresh out of a relationship with Bella Hadid; and Justin Bieber was overdue to re-enter Selena’s life and mess everything up for her.
Now, however, it seems that these two are the real deal, and for a while there, they weren’t shying away from sharing their love on social media.
Selena posted the clip above to her Instagram page over the weekend (no pun intended), but it’s since been deleted.
The new couple is currently on a romantic getaway in Florence, Italy, and Selena took time to share a highlight of the trip with her millions of Instagram followers.
It wasn’t the first time that she and Tesfaye appeared on one another’s social media pages.
Just last week, Selena and Abel enjoyed an outing at Dave and Buster’s alongside Jaden Smith and French Montana.
Tesfaye posted several pictures from the event, which makes sense, because when you get that random of a crew together, you have to share it with the world.
When Selena posted video from the Italian vacay, however, it didn’t last very long.
The footage above appeared on her IG page last night, and this morning it as gone.
It’s anyone’s guess as to what that may mean, but not surprisingly, fans are already speculating.
Naturally, there are those who think it’s an indication that the couple has already broken up.
That’s reading quite a bit into things, but it would explain a lot.
After all, something happened in the past 12 hours that prompted Selena to delete a video that she shot and posted herself.
Of course, everything Ms. Gomez does is the subject of intense online scrutiny, so not surprisingly, there’s more than one theory regarding what prompted her to remove the clip.
Shortly after the video was deleted, Selena posted a quote from Ashton Kutcher addressing Donald Trump’s controversial ban on immigration from seven Muslim countries.
"Everyone in airports that belong in my America: You are the part of the fabric of who we are, and we love you and we welcome you,” Kutcher said at last night’s SAG Awards.
Some believe Selena was simply trying to shift the focus from her relationship to this country’s ongoing human rights crises.
But we’re not sure why that would necessitate deleting an innocuous clip of her boyfriend.
Or official theory remains that these two have already hit a rough patch, but we’re not pronouncing the relationship dead just yet.
