The honeymoon may very well be over for Selena Gomez and The Weeknd.

Despite reports that the singers were "holding hands and very affectionate" toward one another while on a date at the Sunset Tower Hotel’s Tower Bar, new evidence suggests that at least one half of this new couple is very unhappy with the other half.

And he may have even just issued some kind of threat against her.

We don’t want to jump to any conclusions here, but The Weeknd Tweeted a cryptic message yesterday afternoon that has fans reeling and wondering.

"playing with me is a dangerous game," reads the Tweet in question.

Is he referring to Gomez here? If so, what did she do? If so, what is the artist saying he’ll do in response?!?

Gomez and The Weeknd got together toward the end of 2016.

Ssome reports have claimed that things are already serious between the couple (like, REALLY SERIOUS between the couple).

Others have alleged that Selena is merely using her new man.

The argument on this side, one supposedly espoused by Justin Bieber among others, goes something along these lines:

Selena has been battling health problems and out of the spotlight for a few months, and is about to release new music.

She’s therefore pretending to be involved in an intense romance with The Weeknd to garner headlines and indirectly promote her upcoming album.

We can’t say for certain whether this is accurate.

But The Weeknd referencing – negatively – how someone is "playing" with him would lend credence to the theory, wouldn’t it?

According to celebrity gossip site In Touch Weekly, however, there are indeed problems between Selena and The Weeknd.

But they are unrelated to any notion of the 24-year-old Gomez using her R&B star boyfriend for professional reasons.

The tabloid recently quoted a source who says Gomez has been going full Stage 5 Clinger, "suffocating" The Weeknd.

She’s been pushing to accompany him on his Starboy: Legend of the Fall 2017 world tour, which he’s hesitant about.

"Selena is begging to join him," this tabloid writes, adding:

"He likes her, but he feels like she’s moving way too quickly."

"Selena’s paranoid that fans will be throwing themselves at The Weeknd and he’ll be tempted to stray."

Moreover, she’s "so scared that she’s threatened to dump him if he doesn’t let her come along on tour."

So what we have here is two contrasting theories. Gomez is either…

  1. Using The Weeknd and doesn’t like him very much and he’s angry.
  2. Really in love with The Weeknd and drivig him sort of insane as a result.

Which do you believe, THG readers?

Adds this same In Touch source: “Selena’s acting so crazy that he’s starting to have second thoughts about their relationship"

"Friends are concerned that it’s only a matter of time before it all ends in tears due to Selena’s self-sabotaging ways.”


That would so not be what Gomez needs right now, not after all those years of going back and forth with Justin Bieber.

A previous article written by Hollywood Life, though, says Selena is actually more serious about The Weeknd than she ever was about Bieber.

“Selena is feeling things she never felt before with The Weeknd," claims this insider, concluding:

“For the first time in a long time, Selena has her confidence back and she credits that to having Abel in her life."

"She is healthier than she has been in a long time and having an honest relationship has a lot to do with her feeling so strongly.

Bottom line: Bieber was just a boy. This is a man.

The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) "makes Selena feel secure and she sees this as her first mature relationship as an adult.”

We just don’t want to see Selena get hurt again. No one does. We want her to be happy and that includes finding true love.

We just hope she’s thinking everything through.
