Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's rumored break is becoming a breakup, and for good this time
Right now, the relationship Gomez seems most focused on is the one with herself, so time will only reveal the course Jelena takes in the future.
Maybe it's time to start mourning what was one of the most significant and era-defining romance in pop culture: the union of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Their on-and-off relationship always left fans with an unavoidable cliffhanger, but it looks like the show is about to get over.
Despite the fact that they've been constantly working on themselves at each and every opportunity they've got, in the wake of Gomez's breakup from the Weeknd, self-improvement apparently has not been enough to mend their haywire relationship.
"Selena realized even though he's made some positive improvements, they just aren't a perfect match right now," a source told E! News, adding that the two are not on talking terms at the moment.
Maybe this is the reason why Bieber was recently seen hanging out with a former Miss Alabama Teen USA-turned-model and influencer, Baskin Champion. The pair were seen together over the weekend when Champion showed up to Bieber's home to hang and, prior to that, at the Los Angeles premiere of Midnight Sun.
"Justin was introduced to Baskin through his friend group and they have only hung out a few times," the source said. "He has definitely been liking her company, but to say they are dating is a huge stretch. Justin isn't trying to be serious with anyone but Selena."
Previously, reports had suggested that Bieber was hoping to get things on-the-mend with Gomez sooner rather than later. And it sure seems as though he's dealing with this break the hardest, what with Gomez having fun in the sun.
A source told E! News, "Justin has been upset about the recent break from Selena and is trying to keep busy until they work things out."
On the other hand, whether or not Gomez wants to be with his is a totally different story, however. While no one actually seems to know what Gomez is thinking, the singer and actress shared her feelings on romance in a subtle way last fall, in an interview with Billboard.
“I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away,” she had said at the time.
Is this really the end of Jelena?
