It's over, and this time for real: Selena Gomez reportedly "thrilled" she and Justin Bieber have finally called it a day
The 'Wolves' singer was the person to initiate the break-up and that she has apparently gotten Bieber "out of her system.”
Watching Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber make up only to break up again is really getting tiring, and that must have been the case for Gomez too since she's finally moved on from her ex-bae and is reportedly thrilled about it.
The couple has been caught up in a break for a long time now, and Gomez finally decided that running back to Bieber was not the solution to their relationship problems.
A source close to Gomez reportedly told Us Weekly, “Selena started seeing the bigger picture when it came to their relationship, like what was more important: her general happiness and her family and friends approval, or her being together with Justin, where no one really supported their relationship.”
The source added, “She obviously chose happiness and her friends and family and is so thrilled about her decision-making process,” the source continued before adding, “She feels more empowered than ever and is looking forward to this next chapter.”
Another source told the publication that the 'Wolves' singer was the person to initiate the break-up and that she has apparently gotten Bieber "out of her system.”
Gomez seems to have completely moved on from Bieber, and she's not interested in getting back together with him anytime soon.
"She respects him as a person but has decided she is much happier doing her own thing," one source told E! News. "Selena rarely even talks about Justin anymore, and is fully open to dating."
"Selena is going in a different direction with her life," shared the source. "She's had a lot of self-reflection time and it's been good for her. She's hanging out with friends and taking it easy."
While Gomez and Bieber have been taking time apart from each other all this while, the 'Sorry' singer has struck up an uncanny friendship-of-sorts with Baskin Champion, a former Miss Alabama Teen USA-turned-model and influencer.
"Justin was introduced to Baskin through his friend group and they have only hung out a few times," revealed a source. "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."
Although the two have been seen with each other multiple times after the rumored break between Gomez and Bieber, the two still continue to maintain their status as friends. However, the two look closer than what meets the eye, and it might have been one of the reasons for Gomez to move further away from Bieber this time around.
And while Bieber has been spending his time between going to church and SoulCycle-ing with Champion on multiple occasions, Gomez has been putting all her energy into her third studio album, along with her work commitments with Coach and Puma.
An insider from E! News revealed, "Selena has been traveling constantly and is putting a lot of her effort into her new music and projects with Coach and Puma. She really wants to finish an album this year and is focused solely on making hits and keeping herself healthy."
She's also been working on her strained relationship with her mother, Mandy Teefy, and the prior tension between them seems to have simmered down quite a bit, owing to Gomez distancing herself from Bieber these last couple months.
"She is in a great place right now and all of her friends and family are happy she is on this path. Overall everything seems to be on a high for right now."
