Brad Pitt, Selena Gomez Reportedly Enjoy Flirtation Started During Angelina Jolie Marriage: Weeknd Betrayed?

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have sparked speculation about the real cause of their breakup for months. At one point, Selena Gomez was rumored to be one of the factors leading to their split, with Gomez and Pitt allegedly enjoying a secret flirtation while he was still married to Jolie. Now that rumor has returned with additional detail that involves Selena's current boyfriend The Weeknd. Has she betrayed him with Brad?

Brad Pitt, Selena Gomez Reportedly Flirting For Nearly Two Years

Radar Online released a new report on October 5 claiming that Pitt and Gomez have been enjoying their alleged flirtation in secret for nearly two years. And even though Selena has been dating The Weeknd, her new romance reportedly has not stopped her from getting cozy with Brad behind her boyfriend's back, according to what an insider told Radar. As a result, Gomez allegedly has endangered her relationship with The Weeknd by enjoying a pre-arranged schedule of cozy phone calls with Pitt.

The source described Brad as a "huge fan of Selena," revealing that their flirtation began at the Golden Globes last year.

"[Brad Pitt and Selena Gomez have] stayed in touch ever since the Golden Globes last year."
Although Gomez herself hinted at a connection at the time by posting an Instagram photo, she wrote a caption claiming that her conversation with Pitt was all about the film, The Big Short.But that didn't stop the rumor mill from spinning stories that their discussion meant more than just a chat about a film. Brad was still married to Angelina Jolie when Gomez, 25, shared the picture on social media of her getting cozy with 53-year-old Pitt following the January 2016 awards show.

The report follows months of rumors that one reason for Angelina Jolie's split from Pitt was that he had been caught cheating on Jolie. One report linked Gomez to their split, with Angelina allegedly finding photos of Selena and other women on Brad's phone, as the Inquisitr noted.

But even though Jolie's alleged discovery of other women's photos on Pitt's camera roll reportedly played a role in their split, sources told Radar that it's unlikely Selena's and Brad's reported flirtation will cause Gomez and The Weeknd to end their romance.
