Is The Weeknd trying to get revenge on Justin Bieber after he reunited with Selena Gomez? The Weeknd was spotted this week with Bieber's ex Yovanna Ventura. And based on the photos it seems like the two were getting pretty cozy.
“The Weeknd was at [French Montana's birthday party] hand in hand with Yovanna Ventura all night,” a source told Us. “They arrived together. They were holding hands. He was there for a solid two hours with her and everywhere they went they held hands.”
A second source added, “He was parading her around. He was trying to make it obvious that he was with someone. They were pretty affectionate and were together the entire night.”
Then, on Friday, The Weeknd and Ventura hung out again at Hyde nightclub. The duo was photographed in the back seat of an SUV outside the club.
Bieber was linked to Ventura in 2014. Given the fact that Gomez got back together with Bieber right after her split with The Weeknd the choice to date Ventura seems a bit surprising.
It seemed there was some bad blood between Bieber and The Weeknd as soon as the latter singer started dating Gomez. Bieber famously called out The Weeknd's music, and The Weeknd released a song about taking another man's girlfriend.
So far, however, Gomez doesn’t seem to have any bad feelings toward The Weeknd. She recently liked one of his posts on Instagram. And she is focusing on her relationship with Bieber.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez “are great and very happy,” a Bieber source told People. “It just got too crazy last week with all the attention. Justin canceled his tour to take care of his mental health and he wants to continue to focus on this. He didn’t like the chaos.”
But while Bieber and Gomez may not make as many public appearances together for the time being, a second source told People that they are “getting close” to being boyfriend and girlfriend again. “They just backed off a little from being out there and are being a bit more low-key,” the source added.
