They are reported to have broken up for good in March 2018. Gomez dated The Weeknd seriously from January 2017-October 2017.

She works closely with UNICEF and is currently the organization's ambassador to the trick-or-treat fundraising program.

In April 2020, Selena paid $4.9 million for an 11,500 square-foot home in Encino, California.
