One of the reasons for the break up could be Selena's ex Justin Bieber, who she was recently spotted out with. “She is done with The Weeknd and is not listening to anyone," a source previously told Radar Online. "Selena doesn’t give a damn what anyone thinks. She is in love with Justin and always will be and there is nothing anyone can do or say to change that, ever.”

Another possible cause? The Weeknd reportedly put work over romance. “Everyone wants love, but his focus is the business,” an insider told Page Six. “He’s building a legacy. He’s young and successful with money and can have any girl he wants. Their relationship kind of came out of nowhere.”

"They're really in each other's work lives and personal lives 100 percent of the time," a source previously told OK!. They added that The Weeknd "managed to wall off" Selena from the rest of her family.

The two have also fought about religion in the past, with the Weeknd being opposed to organized religion. This is especially interesting considering Selena and Justin were spotted attending church together recently!
