Selena Gomez's date with The Weeknd was the Disney romance of your dreams

In a modern day version of Disney's Lady and The Tramp, hitmakers Selena Gomez and the Weeknd have unexpectedly been spotted sharing pasta in the rain before locking lips outside one of LA's hottest celebrity spots.An eyewitness told People that the pair shared a three-hour private dinner at Giorgio Baldi and, while they are yet to confirm their budding romance, it seems like Gomez can't keep her hands to herself in 46 different intimate shots snapped outside the restaurant.

"They acted like a couple. They ordered pasta and shared the food. She seemed very into him — she was smiling a lot. They left holding hands."

Gomez and The Weeknd (Abel Makkonen Tesfaye) have known each other for over a year, with the pair both performing at the 2015 Victoria's Secret show. After the runway show Gomez took to Instagram to gush over the experience."This show was a dream to be on. Thank you so much @victoriassecret and all the angels for being SO nice, warm and fun!!" she wrote. "And looking at you guys all day wasn't hard to do at all. Abel killed it as usual and Ellie [Goulding] was shining brighter than ever! I'm done. What is life? Love you!"

While this could be a more-than-friendly meal shared between collaborators (ahem, we are looking at you Drake and J-Lo) there is a high possibility that they are dating, perhaps confirmed in the most modern form of shading by the Weeknd's former flame, Bella Hadid.Hadid has followed in Rihanna's footsteps, tactically unfollowing Gomez - who happens to be one of her sister Gigi's best girl-pals - on Instagram (considering Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram she is probably yet to notice).Fans of The Weeknd and Hadid have taken to social media to express their sadness over their hopes for the couple getting back together being dashed. The pair were briefly reunited at last year's Victoria's Secret Show, making headlines for their awkward meet-up on the runway. The couple dated on-and-off until they pulled the plug last November after 18 months; Gomez has not been officially linked to anyone since her relationship with Justin Bieber. Gomez returned to the spotlight in November to accept the award for Favourite Female Artist Rock/Pop at the American Music awards, following a three month break she took to deal with depression and anxiety stemming from her battle with Lupus.Taking to social media at the time, she wrote, "my year has been the hardest yet most rewarding one yet. I've finally fought the fight of not 'being enough'."
