AceShowbiz - The Weeknd was willing to do anything to save Selena Gomez, back when they were still together. Following the release of his surprise EP "My Dear Melancholy" which is believed to contain subtle shades at his ex-girlfriend, a source says that the Canadian singer indeed offered his kidney to the 25-year-old singer/actress when she found out that she needed a transplant last year.
"When Selena found out that she definitely needed the kidney transplant she was freaked out at first, and scared," a source reportedly close to The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, tells HollywoodLife.com.
"Abel was totally there for Selena though," the source adds, "and he immediately told her that if he is a match he would totally be willing to donate one of his kidneys. And, he meant it, because he did really love Selena and was willing to do anything for her."
The "Can't Feel My Face" hitmaker proved he was serious with his words by researching the process and getting tested, but in the end "he wasn't a match," the source reveals.
Selena, fortunately, found a match in her close friend Francia Raisa, who ultimately donated her kidney. "Thankfully, Francia matched really soon after, so that was a huge weight lifted," the source continues.
Still, the fact that Selena got back with her other ex Justin Bieber soon after she and The Weeknd broke up allegedly made him upset. The source says, "But, that's what really pissed off Abel when they split though-he was willing to give his kidney to Selena, he was there for her totally, but then she ends up kicking him to the curb, and getting back with Justin again-just to add even more salt to the wound."
And that is allegedly reflected in the lyrics of his songs such as "Try Me", "Wasted Times" and "Call Out My Name" which are taken from his new EP. "I said I didn't feel nothing baby, but I lied/ I almost cut a piece of myself for your life/ Guess I was just another pit stop," he rhymes in "Call Out My Name".
He also sings in "Privilege", "And I don't want to hear that you are suffering/ You are suffering no more/ 'Cause I held you down when you were suffering."
