Are they, or aren’t they? It’s hard to keep track of whether or not Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are actually in a relationship. Love ’em or hate ’em, it seems pop music’s most talked about couple are back on… For now.
It can be hard to keep track of the pair’s status as a couple. Just when you think they’ve split for good, one will post a picture to their Instagram account of the two acting very much in love.
Selena officially ended her relationship with rapper The Weeknd less than a week ago and has already been spotted on numerous occasions with Justin. Selena and Justin last split three years ago, but seem to have rekindled things after Selena’s kidney transplant earlier this year.
A source close to Selena reveals:
“They started texting when she was in hospital for her kidney transplant. Justin only found out through the press and he was hurt that she hadn’t told him directly. He sent her flowers during her recovery.”
The source also claims that Justin has majorly turned his life around with help from his pastor, Carl Lentz. It’s no secret that Justin has turned to religion for guidance recently. His Purpose album contains many references to his spirituality and renewed relationship with God.
And it may be his relationship with his pastor that has encouraged the rekindling of his relationship with Selena. Lentz reportedly advises Justin on every decision he makes, and that includes who he should be dating.
The source continues to explain that it was Lentz who encouraged a reconciliation between Justin and Selena.
“Carl has been encouraging ‘reconciliation’ between the two – to heal their friendship at least – and Justin basically has been asking her for her forgiveness this whole time.
He’s really cleaned up his life majorly, they consider each other their one true love.
