However, their relationship ended last year, though neither of them has ever shared the details of what went wrong with their relationship. A lot of people believe that there cheating might have been involved and it seems that these rumors might have been confirmed by Taylor Swift recently.
Let’s explore all the important details about Swift, Bieber, and Gomez before going over why fans think that Swift accidentally revealed the secrets behind Beiber and Gomez’s breakup.
Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were close with each other ten years ago
Swift, Bieber, and Gomez all became stars at around the same time in the late 2000s. Their similar situations brought the them together often and they seemed to be friends with each other for some time.
Swift and Bieber went on the road together in 2009 when he opened for her on her Fearless tour. Bieber had frequently shown that he appreciated Swift for helping him get his career off the ground.
Meanwhile, Swift also became best friends with Gomez a few years prior, when they were each dating a Jonas brother at the same time. Gomez’s mother even shared that she was grateful for her daughter’s friendship with Swift, especially in the harsh music industry: “They came up together, and they just have never parted so it’s really a true friendship.”
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were on-and-off for years
In 2010, Bieber and Gomez started being linked to each other and a year later, they went public with their relationship.
What followed would be several years of breakups and makeups for Bieber and Gomez. They broke up in later 2012 but got back together for just a few weeks before calling it quits again in early 2013. This pattern of breakups followed by short-lasting makeups would continue until March 2018 when they officially broke up for good.
Just a few months after his breakup with Gomez, Bieber announced that he had gotten engaged to model Hailey Baldwin. Bieber and Baldwin are currently married.
Taylor Swift is currently feuding with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun
Although Swift and Gomez seem to still be as close as ever, the same cannot be said for Swift’s relationship with Bieber.
Swift is currently feuding with Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber’s manager. In her lengthy Tumblr essay that explains the whole situation, she posted a screenshot of Bieber’s post that was allegedly disrespectful towards her. Bieber posted a photo on Instagram of himself, Braun, and Kanye West — another person that Swift is not on good terms with — and captioned it: “Taylor Swift what up.”
Bieber has since deleted the photo and issued an apology to Swift. He admitted that, in hindsight, the post was “distasteful and insensitive,” though he also expressed his disappointment in Swift choosing to be public with the feud. “As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations,” Bieber wrote. “So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on Scooter isn’t fair.”
Taylor Swift liked a fan post that said Justin Bieber cheated on Selena Gomez
Even though Bieber said that he was sorry for making such a post, Swift fans did not think the apology could erase the damage that was done. Many fans on social media began sharing supportive posts for her and she acknowledged quite a lot of them.
On Tumblr, one post Swift liked was from a user who said: “‘We haven’t gotten to communicate our differences.’ You cheated on her best friend and then publicly sided with the man who made revenge porn against her. How was she supposed to invite you over for tea?” (The “revenge porn” portion referred to Kanye West’s “Famous” music video which featured a naked body double of Taylor Swift.)
Internet users went wild and many believe that this was a confirmation that Bieber cheated on Gomez. Throughout Bieber and Gomez’s relationship, there have been numerous cheating allegations at different times.
Back in 2015, Bieber revealed in an interview that he and Gomez struggled with fame and trust. “We were working out how to be in a relationship, how to be ourselves, who we were, in the middle of having people judge our relationship through the media,” he said. “I think that really messed my head up too… Because then, it’s like trust and all this other stuff that starts messing with your mind. You’re on the road. And there are beautiful women on the road. And you’re just getting yourself into trouble.”
A year later, during a heated back-and-forth conversation between Bieber and Gomez on Instagram, Gomez said: “Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive.”
