Original story (11/16/17 at 10:55 a.m. ET):
Looks like neither Selena Gomez nor The Weeknd are quite over their exes.
In fact, the Canada native was spotted leaving the supermodel’s apartment in New York City earlier this week.
Old habits die hard, eh?
However, though they are in contact, they are not rushing back into a relationship just yet.
"Bella and Abel have been in contact since Abel and Selena split, but they are not back together," a source told E! News.
"Abel reached out to Bella asking to hang out and catch up, and she decided to see him and see where things go. She knows that if they don't date again, they can at least be good friends."
In fact, they are just taking things slow and seeing where it leads.
"They enjoy each other's company and have a lot of fun together.”
"He has expressed to her that he loves her still, and they will always have a real connection," the source continued.
"He also apologized for hurting her in the past."
Though he has apologized for his past mistakes, the 21-year-old isn’t quite ready to fully accept him back into her life.
"She still loves him but has her guard up. She never really got over him. She is not looking to be exclusive with him now, just to be his friend,” the source said.
“His schedule won't allow him to stay focused on her — she knows this from past experience.”
The source continued, “She also knows he is talking to a few girls still. She reads what is put out in the news and that affects her."
Not to mention, Bella has grown up a lot in the year since their split and doesn’t feel the need to immediately get back together.
"She is stronger this time around," the source said.
“She would give Abel another try, maybe down the road, but is taking small steps before she jumps back into a relationship."
