According to UsWeekly, Selena Gomez is doing more than just wearing Justin Bieber’s hockey jersey; they’re allegedly dating again. Really, can you blame her? What red-blooded human could resist the undeniable charms of the celebrity equivalent of that guy who used to sell bags of oregano to 9th graders at your high school.
A source claims that nothing shady was going on between Selena and Justin. But still, it might be time to return that jacket back to The Weeknd now.
“Selena and Justin are back together. Selena and The Weeknd just fizzled and ended amicably – it wasn’t dramatic and it wasn’t about Justin. But Selena always had feelings for Justin.”
The source adds that Selena’s friends want her to be cautious with Justin, because she’s been in such a good place after her recent-ish kidney surgery. As for how they got from “hanging out as friends” to dating again, TMZ claims to have some insight into that.
When the rumors first started that Selena and Justin were possibly getting together again, sources said she was impressed with how he had changed from a bratty douche to…I don’t know, a somewhat less bratty douche. Apparently the seeds were planted a while ago. Sources say that it all started after Selena’s kidney transplant surgery. Justin got sad thinking about what could have happened if the surgery wasn’t a success. So a nostalgic Justin swooped in and began pursuing Selena again. This was while she was still with The Weeknd, but the relationship was almost done by then.
However, there is a chance Selena might not have made a bad relationship decision. One source tells E! News that Selena and Justin aren’t officially back together yet and are just “figuring” out if it will work between them.
Does it matter if Justin has changed? It just has to look like he has. Right now, his relationship with Selena seems to be all about wholesome shit, like happy couple bike rides. But let’s be honest, it won’t last; the real Justin will come out eventually. Something will happen. Personally, I kind of hope it happens during a ride in one of those pedal-powered swan boats. Everybody looks the opposite of tough in those things.
