Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber dated on and off for years before splitting in 2013, but rather than continue to discuss her 21-year-old pop star ex-boyfriend in interviews, Selena Gomez has put her foot down, claiming she’s totally “done” addressing all things “Jelena.”

“I’m so exhausted,” Selena Gomez explained to W Magazine earlier this month. “I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can’t do it anymore. Honestly, what I would love to be printed is that I am so beyond done talking about that and him.”
Although Selena Gomez is finally stopping the chatter, it wasn’t too long ago that she and Bieber were seen together. In fact, despite seemingly embarking on a romance with Samuel Krost in November, and allegedly a second romance with One Direction star Niall Horan in December, she and Bieber were spotted together at the end of last year, and during an outing in Beverly Hills California, Bieber serenaded Selena Gomez with “My Girl” as he played a hotel piano. Since their outing, however, Selena Gomez has stepped out a few times publicly with Krost, and at this point, the two are believed to be together.

Still, despite the romance, rumors have swirled regarding Selena Gomez and Horan, the latest of which claimed Horan was more into her than she was to him. She doesn’t appear to have any plans to reconcile the short-lived romance.
“The reason why everything cooled was because [Selena Gomez] didn’t want to take anything further. Niall really was happy when they hooked up but now realizes it was a drunk hookup night that didn’t do anything more because Selena didn’t want it,” a source revealed to Hollywood Life on February 8. “He would have liked it to have been something but now that time has passed he realizes a relationship with Selena will never happen. And being her friend is an OK landing spot. He is not heartbroken, just disappointed that it never had the chance to be more.”
Because Selena Gomez and Krost have not been seen together in the last couple of weeks, it’s hard to say what exactly is going on between them. However, Selena Gomez has never been one to be out and about too frequently, as her main focus appears to be on her career, her family and her friends.
Meanwhile, her ex-boyfriend, Bieber, has taken a much different approach, and is regularly spotted out an about with different females from week to week. In addition to sightings with Shades of Blue actress Sarah Jeffery, model Jessica Serfaty and reality star Kourtney Kardashian, Bieber is often seen with Hailey Baldwin, and the two appear to be “on” at this moment.
Although Selena Gomez is “done” speaking of Bieber publicly, a source recently claimed the two stay in touch from time to time. However, now that Selena Gomez is in a new relationship with Krost, she has allegedly been pulling back from their friendship.
“Justin keeps tabs on Selena [and he] thinks about her often but not always. In the past, when he reached out to her she totally responded fast — now he reaches out to her and he doesn’t hear back for weeks at a time or at all,” the source revealed.
Selena Gomez has not yet officially confirmed her relationship with Krost, nor has he spoken of her publicly.
