The Weeknd Was Selena’s Rock During Transplant Recovery

Selena Gomez pulled back from her public persona and many of her friends in the weeks leading up to, and after her kidney transplant, but one person she could always count on for support was The Weeknd.

The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye, has been everywhere with Gomez since the two began hooking up in January.  They’ve been photographed holding hands and locking lips more times this year than some people do in their whole life.

We’re told when Selena was gearing up for her life-saving kidney transplant, Abel was one of the greatest sources of support for the singer.  He never left her side, and made it clear she was his top priority.

One source close to the couple tell The Blast Selena chalks up a major part of her recovery success to the love and support Abel gave her.

As we previously reported, Selena stayed under the radar this summer while recovering from the transplant.
