The Weeknd’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez posted a surprise Instagram this afternoon in support of The Weeknd’s rumored new girlfriend Simi Khadra and her twin sister Haze Khadra, indicating she has no problem with Simi’s new relationship. “Since 2013 💙,” wrote Gomez, posing next to the twins.

The move has interesting timing. It comes after Simi’s romance with The Weeknd made headlines — along with its apparent impact on Simi’s close friendship with The Weeknd’s longtime on-off ex Bella Hadid. Hadid no longer follows Simi and Haze on their joint Instagram @SimiHaze, with outlets claiming the unfollowing happened after Simi and The Weeknd broke dating rumours. Simi and The Weeknd were filmed kissing over the weekend at The Weeknd’s birthday party in Las Vegas; TMZ made the footage.
Hadid is currently dating Marc Kalman and has been with him for over a year.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Simi and The Weeknd are casually together. The source said: “The Weeknd and Simi saw each other and had fun together. They were really acting together at his birthday party in Vegas last weekend. It’s easy because they’ve known each other for a long time. Simi supports The Weeknd and they have a natural flirt and chemistry.”
Gomez and The Weeknd dated from January to October 2017. Gomez has shown public support for The Weeknd since the split, describing him as a friend in November 2017.
“The best part [of being single]† said Gomez then. “It’s actually… you know what? Something I’m really proud of is that there is such a true friendship [between me and The Weeknd]† I’ve really never experienced anything like this in my life. We ended it as best friends, and it was really about encouragement and caring [for each other]and that was quite remarkable for me.”
When The Weeknd first started dating Gomez, Hadid unfollowed Gomez on Instagram. She eventually followed Gomez again in the spring of 2020, only to unfollow her shortly after. However, Gomez and Hadid have signaled support for each other over the years, and Gomez still follows Hadid on her own Instagram.
Hadid and The Weeknd first dated for a year and a half before ending their relationship in November 2016. Then they started hanging again in November 2017; they went on to completely revive their relationship in July 2018. Hadid and The Weeknd split again in August 2019. A source said at the time that they had hope for the future: “They hope to get back together at some point, but for now they are focusing on themselves and their projects,” the source said.Alyssa Bailey Senior News and Strategy Editor Alyssa Bailey is the Senior News and Strategy Editor at ELLE.com, where she oversees coverage of celebrities and royals (notably Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton).
