Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are taking a 'break' from their relationship

The couple was recently seen leaving a Los Angeles church in separate cars after their visit. The choice of separate modes of transport is what led to speculation of the couple being on a 'break'.

Despite their countless visits to the church or the beach, it seems like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have called a time-out on their relationship for now.  While we were all so excited that Jelena had rekindled their relationship, it looks like things may not be as much of a fairytale as we hoped. 

According to reports by E! News, the 24-year-old Canadian and 'Wolves' singer have decided to take some time apart, but are continuing to keep in contact.

"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 news outlet.

"They will absolutely get back together and they are not over, but they both need some time away from each other." It appears constant paparazzi hounding and gossip about the pair's relationship has weighed heavily on the couple.

Another source told E! News that the couple has been having issues trying to adjust to their public relationship. The source explained, "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."

Despite posting the most adorable picture for Bieber's birthday on March 1, the source also told E! News that Gomez has reportedly not seen him since his birthday.

The singer publicly acknowledged her rekindled romance with Bieber for the first time last week on his 24th birthday. "March 1, 1994, someone I know that happens to be super cool was born. Boom," Gomez wrote alongside a picture of her laughing with a Polaroid of Bieber on her forehead.

E! reports the 25-year-old singer-turned-actress is currently focussing on mending her relationship with her mother Mandy Teefey, after they unfollowed each other on social media and Teefey publicly criticised her daughter's decision to work with director Woody Allen. Speaking of Gomez and her mum, a source said: “Things are not amazing between them.”

News of Jelena's split comes a day after Bieber 'liked' a week-old picture of YouTuber Inanna Sarkis, prompting rumors of a break-up among fans and followers of the couple.

On the other hand, a source close to Entertainment Tonight has come forward to confirm that the couple is just working over some issues, but have not necessarily taken a break from each other or their relationship.

While they often spend time apart, the source explains that distance between them is generally for "various reasons," saying, "It's not because they are broken up or taking a break."

And although it looks like they aren't calling it quits between them, the source admits, "that doesn't mean things are perfect between them. They have issues just like any other couple."

"She's still working hard, looking after her health, and doing what's good for her," the source notes. "Justin isn't walking all over her."

Our only hopes here is to see Selena and Justin get back together and be the lovey-dovey couple we all love and adore.
