Other sources tell E! News that Selena ultimately decided it would be best if they broke up.

"The distance was ok in the beginning and they were trying to make it work but then Selena really needed more than what The Weeknd could give her. She needed him more present. The fights were not huge just happening more often as time went on," one source shared.

Another insider added, " Selena and Abel both agreed that this relationship wasn't going to work due to his busy schedule, but Selena was the one who wanted to end it. She didn't feel secure while he was away, and the schedule conflicts got very exhausting for her."

Selena and The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) first got fans talking when they were spotted kissing outside L.A. hotspot Giorgio Baldi in January.

Their love story would also take them to the Coachella Music Festival, 2017 Met Gala and New York Fashion Week.

"They are still talking and will remain friends," a source explained to us. "They have been very grown-up about it."

"It's been hard for them to come to the realization that this is the direction things were heading, but it's been hard for months," the insider added. "They have been open and honest about it and where they were going. Distance definitely played a factor."
