Has Selena Gomez been spending time with Justin Bieber while in rehab?
Although Bieber, who is currently in the midst of his Purpose World Tour in Europe, hasn’t been photographed at the facility or in the area, a new rumor has hit the web which claims Bieber recently visited his ex-girlfriend.
On November 1, iTech Post claimed Bieber had defied the orders of Selena Gomez’s parents, who don’t want her in contact with the “Cold Water” singer at all and paid a visit to the Tennessee treatment center where she’s been for the past several weeks.
Selena Gomez’s family “recently reached out to Justin and told him to stay far, far away,” a source recently said, according to a report by the Hollywood Gossip. “They told him he’s banned from calling, texting, emailing, or visiting [Selena Gomez].”
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have had a troubled relationship for the past couple of months due to an Instagram feud in August, which was prompted by a photo Bieber shared on his page of himself and Sofia Richie.
Selena Gomez’s family “blames Justin for much of her downward spiral,” the source explained.
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber came to blows in August after Bieber told his fans he would make his Instagram account private if they didn’t start being nicer to Richie. In response to his threat, Selena Gomez told Bieber that he should keep his photos to himself and reminded him that it was his fans who have been there for him from the start.
“[Selena Gomez] lost it,” a source said. “She can be fragile emotionally and Justin is a major factor.”
Although Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber weren’t on the best terms just weeks ago, a recent report claimed Bieber had been going to extreme lengths to make sure he and Gomez got to a better place.
“He’s been sending her hundreds of thousands to pay for everything from private jet bills to the recent stay in rehab,” Celebs Now revealed to readers last week.
During their feud, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber accused one another of cheating after Bieber suggested Selena Gomez was feuding with him in an effort to get attention for herself.
“It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love,” Bieber wrote.
“Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times are pointing the finger at the ones that were supportive and forgiving, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love,” Selena Gomez said in response.
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been in one another’s lives since 2010 and at the end of last year, they prompted rumors of a possible reunion when they were seen together in Los Angeles. However, weeks after the sighting, Bieber seemingly embarked on a romance with Hailey Baldwin and the couple spent the holidays together in Anguilla with Bieber’s family.
Around the time of Bieber and Baldwin’s trip, Selena Gomez was seen spending time with Samuel Krost. Still, when it came to moving on from Bieber, Selena Gomez appeared to struggle.
As her treatment continues in Tennessee, Bieber is reportedly doing his best to stay involved in Selena Gomez’s life, but he may have his own selfish reasons for making amends with the troubled singer.
“This is his way of staying in her life, as well as making himself feel less guilty for screwing her over,” a source explained.
