Selena Gomez Angry w/ Ex The Weeknd For Basing ‘The Idol’ Character Off Of Her Life, Reportedly Thinks It’s ‘Creepy’ He Used ‘Her Real-Life Pain For Entertainment’

It looks like Selena Gomez isn’t too pleased with The Weeknd.

Selena Gomez is convinced that her ex-boyfriend The Weeknd is using her “real-life pain for entertainment” in his controversial HBO show “The Idol.”

A source close to Selena recently shared that she is bothered by the eerie comparisons that can seemingly be drawn between her life and that of Lily-Rose Depp’s character Jocelyn.

The insider shared,

“The similarities between Selena’s life and Jocelyn’s life are just uncanny. Being [that] she actually dated The Weeknd, it is even more creepy for her. Her real-life pain was used for entertainment value and that really irks her out.”

They continued,

“Everyone in her team who has known her for a very long time is dumbfounded by this, but at the end of the day Selena is going to do what she always does – rise above and move on.”

“The Idol” focuses on an aspiring pop star named Jocelyn and her complex relationship with Tedros, a self-help guru and cult leader, played by The Weeknd.

Apparently, there are some glaring similarities between Selena and the character Jocelyn. For starters, the show centers around Jocelyn’s personal struggles and mental breakdown that she faces, which is similar to Selena Gomez and the mental health struggles she previously dealt with.

Another similarity, both Selena and Jocelyn rose to the top of their singing career as childhood actors. Selena and the fictional character also have similar mannerisms, one of them being blowing kisses, which Selena has been photographed doing dozens of times throughout her career.

While some would say those are subtle comparisons, there are also some eerie similarities between the two.

In 2015, Selena faced backlash after she decided to go topless for the cover of her album “Revival.” When asked about it in a radio interview, she said,

“I am not going to let them get to me.”

In the show’s premiere episode, Jocelyn also did a topless album cover and told her management team that,

“It’s my body.”

In 2016, Selena Gomez suffered a mental breakdown after being diagnosed with Lupus and canceled the last few shows of her “Revival Tour” to enter a psychiatric facility. Coincidentally, Jocelyn also experienced a mental breakdown and was forced to cancel her tour following her mother’s death.

The most alarming parallel occurred after both women were released from treatment.

Following her release from treatment, Selena’s first gig was a video shoot for her hit song, “Bad Liar.” She was told to keep her hospital bracelet on for the video. Jocelyn was also told to keep her hospital bracelet on for a photo shoot following treatment to be more “relatable” to fans.

The Weeknd

The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) and Selena Gomez dated for 10 months back in 2017. Throughout their relationship, Selena maintained a low profile as she was dealing with her health and other personal issues.

The Weeknd not only stars in the HBO series, but he also created the show along with “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson, and Reza Fahim.
