Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber Are Reportedly on a Break
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, who spent 6 out of 7 days together two weeks ago, are now on a break, E! is reporting via multiple sources. But it’s not a permanent split, the outlet stressed. They’re just taking some time apart and still talking all the time. “They were having a lot of little disagreements recently and one fight in particular blew up and caused them to decide to ‘break up,’ however, they’ve been in contact the entire time and their feelings for each other have not changed,” a source explained to the outlet. “They will absolutely get back together and they are not over, but they both need some time away from each other.”
(Entertainment Tonight posted a follow-up story shortly after, clarifying they are still technically together per their source, though “that doesn’t mean things are perfect between them. They have issues just like any other couple,” the source said.)
All the paparazzi and news coverage of Jelena has taken a toll on the two’s private romance. “They both have expressed that they have been feeling overwhelmed with a lot of pressure that has come with their public relationship, and haven’t been seeing eye to eye on things,” a second source said.
E! also reports that Gomez is trying to “mend” her relationship with her mother Mandy Teefey, who is reportedly not a fan of Bieber and Gomez’s renewed romance. “Things are not amazing between them,” the second source continued.
Gomez was last seen with Bieber on February 28, when they attended church together. She did not attend his go-kart birthday party the next day, March 1. But she did go Instagram official with him, posting a birthday ‘gram in tribute to him that afternoon. “March 1, 1994 someone I know that happens to be super cool was born. Boom,” she wrote.
While Bieber has been photographed out in Los Angeles, a third source told E! that Gomez had been in New York. She was photographed back in Los Angeles last night, attending the same church service as Bieber. They left separately and allegedly sat apart, witnesses in the service shared on social media.
Bieber’s Instagram activity caught the eye of fans earlier this week, and prompted some concern about a breakup. He liked a week-old ‘gram of YouTuber Inanna Sarkis yesterday:
