For several years, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were a hot item in Hollywood. They were two popular stars and fans could not get enough of their on-and-off relationship.
However, these days, it’s clear that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are no longer together. Justin Bieber is married to model Hailey Baldwin, but that hasn’t stopped people from wondering whether he and Gomez could reconcile.
There are lots of rumors going around that Bieber is still pining for his ex-girlfriend and trying to contact her. Just how true are these rumors exactly? Here’s what we know.
When did Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez break up?
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez went public with their relationship in 2011.
The couple spent many years breaking up and making up. In 2012, they broke up towards the end of the year and made up for a few weeks. Then, they broke up again in 2013. This sort of pattern would continue until the spring of 2018, which was their most recent breakup.
A few months later, Justin Bieber announced that he was getting married to Hailey Baldwin. The two tied the knot later in the year, so it’s safe to say that the previous breakup between Bieber and Gomez was their final one.
What has been going on between Bieber and Gomez?
Of course, some people are still holding on to the idea that Bieber and Gomez might get back together in the future. There are reports are saying that Bieber, especially, is still missing Gomez.
Back in April 2019, the internet went into a frenzy when Bieber’s search history was seen in one of his social media posts. Fans saw that it included Selena Gomez’s Coachella performance and immediately thought of it as a clue that Bieber was looking up his ex-girlfriend.
Bieber later clarified that he and his wife were just watching his Coachella performance and Gomez simply showed up automatically after that.
However, in July 2019, RadarOnline reported that Bieber would not stop trying to contact Gomez. The outlet pointed out that Gomez has been public about her battle with depression and, according to RadarOnline, a source told them that Bieber “tries convincing Selena that he is going through what she went through and, therefore, he needs her advice.”
The source continued by saying that Bieber saw Gomez’s photos from the recent Cannes Film Festival. “Justin felt compelled to let her know that she looks amazing and that he is really happy for her that she is doing so well… At the point, he really just needs to let it go. Justin is married and it’s time.”
Is Bieber really trying to contact Gomez?
While the allegations from RadarOnline might sound juicy, Gossip Cop has debunked the report.
According to Gossip Cop, the article stated that Bieber “refuses to stop contacting” Gomez, but only offered a couple of examples with the most recent one (Cannes) being pretty much two months ago.
“If the outlet truly had an inside ‘source,’ why would that person hold onto this information for two months and not furnish other examples?” Gossip Cop wrote.
A mutual friend of Gossip Cop and Bieber confirmed that these rumors of Bieber trying to contact Gomez are false. In the past, RadarOnline had also published other fabricated stories concerning Bieber and his relationships – many of which got debunked by Gossip Cop later as well.
It’s clear that these days, Bieber is focusing on his marriage with Hailey Baldwin while Gomez is also trying to move on with her life. The latter recently deleted the last photo concerning Bieber from her Instagram account, showing that the two of them are over for good.
