Selena Gomez has been papped a couple of times this week out biking with friends. It’s been a high profile few days for her, starting last week when Justin Bieber was sighted at her house. And her interview with The Today Show about the kidney transplant aired on Monday. That was the same day that it was confirmed that she and The Weeknd broke up. And, supposedly, he was the one who broke up with her.

Late last night, TMZ, always making sure that men’s voices no longer remain silent, reported that it was Abel who made the decision:

The Weeknd is the one who ended his relationship with Selena Gomez -- not vice versa -- and it had nothing to do with Justin Bieber ... TMZ has learned.

Multiple sources connected to The Weeknd and Selena tell us, their relationship had been fizzling out since Summer. They had rarely seen each other because of his touring schedule and her shooting schedule. They started talking less frequently on the phone.

We're told Abel enjoyed being single before he met Selena and felt unfairly tied down in a relationship that had lost its passion. Our sources say several weeks ago Abel called Selena, explained how the relationship was no longer working for him and then ended it.

Our sources say the 2 remain friendly and have even talked several times since the breakup.

As for Justin Bieber ... we're told he was not a factor in the breakup. Justin's apparent reignited relationship with Selena didn't start until after she and The Weeknd went their separate ways.

TMZ also has video of The Weeknd surrounded by beautiful women at a party on Monday. Translation: a real man doesn’t lock his cock down to just one cave, BRUH!

Here’s Selena on her bike yesterday looking not all that bothered by The Weeknd reestablishing his masculinity. She’s wearing his jacket though:

I think I might be too old and too married to know if this means anything. Is it possible that she was heading out and just grabbed whatever coat was easiest to get to? Is it possible that she knew what people would say if she wore the coat but that was the one she wanted to go out in and f-ck it, who cares?

I mean… sure?

But Selena’s not a rookie. She knows the paparazzi game. She also knows the social media game and how fans obsess over details on social media. (As does Taylor Swift.) I’m still not sure what the intention is, but if there was an intention, that’s also not a surprise.
