Then when she got with The Weeknd, it was like we got our old Sel back and it looks like Abel really makes our girl happy.
How do we know? Selena told us!
Well, not us, but she spoke out about her relationships in a new interview with In Style mag where she graces the cover.
"It seems like you’re really happy right now too with your boyfriend, Abel," the interviewer asked.
And Sel's response is literally EVERYTHING!
"I really am. It’s great. I don’t depend on one area of my life to make me happy. It’s really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and to make sure that I never get influenced by a guy. I’ve wanted to be in a strong headspace for years, and I really wasn’t."
In 2016, Selena cancelled the remainder of her Revival Tour due to anxiety, panic attacks and depression which many fans attributed to having resulted from her break up with Bieber.
She adds: "Before, I was so young and easily influenced, and I’d feel insecure. You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you, if that makes sense. I’m lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else."
We're so glad that Sel is in a better place now and it's all thanks to The Weeknd!
