Based on sources galore, it's a coincidence that Selena Gomez and the Weeknd have split after ten months of dating, right after Selena and her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber were spotted going to church together. (Though it's a pretty patented Biebs hangout move.) But according to People, Justin knows he's got a long way to go in getting Selena's family and friends back on board with their own relationship, friendship or otherwise.
One Bieber "pal" shared:
"Justin is aware Selena's family is not thrilled they are hanging out. They think he caused Selena a lot of grief. Justin hopes he can prove to them that he has changed.
He has changed a lot in the past few months. He is a very different person. They have a lot to talk about and are having fun catching up."
In many accounts of the two's rekindled friendship, Justin and Selena reconnected after he learned of her kidney transplant earlier this year. They'd formally split up after four years of dating in 2014.
Meanwhile, eagle-eyed social media users have noticed that the Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) has unfollowed, among other Instagram accounts, Selena's mother, her BFF (and kidney donor) Francia Raisa, her assistant Theresa Mingus, and various #Abelena fan accounts, as well as removing and deleting other traces (likes, posts) of his now-ex. As of now, he still follows Selena herself though.
