The brunette beauty doesn’t mention Justin by name in the song, but according to an insider, the track relates to the ‘Love Yourself’ hitmaker rather than The Weeknd, who Selena has also dated.
The source explained: ‘Although the song Lose You to Love Me was co-written and a collaboration, Selena was very involved in writing and creating it, and the song is obviously about Justin.
‘Her fling with The Weeknd did not inspire the song – their relationship was much more short-lived and not deep enough to inspire it.’
She has now been linked to 26-year-old Niall Horan.
