Justin Bieber has mastered the art of the off-again, on-again relationship, and both Selena Gomez and Kourtney Kardashian have experienced his expertise in rekindling (and then dwindling) romances. But it’s Selena who has likely had the most dramatic and emotional breakup and makeup sessions with the now 22-year-old pop artist, while Kourtney only recently found herself heating up (and then cooling down) her hookup with him. Now, Gomez seems to have the key role in the love triangle that’s been formed, but how long will it last?
The most recent indication that Jelena might be an item again occurred when Selena replied to Bieber’s throwback picture showing them passionately locking lips. Gomez responded by first “liking” the photo and then commenting “Perfect,” as the Inquisitr reported.
But now, even though rumors continue to swirl that Kourtney has been seeking to keep her own hookup with the Biebs beliebable, Selena is the one who’s getting all the attention. Gomez attended Justin’s concert in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, spending time backstage with her off-again-on-again boyfriend, reports E! News.
Although both are busy with tours, an insider revealed to E! News that the lovebirds are cooing about rekindling their romance in the near future. And for now, Selena and the “Sorry” singer both are supportive when it comes to each other’s careers, with Gomez clearly enjoying herself visiting him backstage. And it was mutual.
“They both looked really happy,” commented the insider.
So what’s the delay in heating up their hookup all over again? According to sources cited by Wonderwall, only the busy schedules that both Gomez and Justin must maintain right now are holding up their romance. Moreover, both have shared the depth of their feelings for each other, with Bieber going all out in proclaiming his love.
“[She] is someone I love dearly. I’m never going to stop loving her. I’m never going to stop checking in on her. I don’t think if you end a relationship, you should end that.”
And apparently the relationship is so much back on that Selena has been secretly visiting Justin at his hotel all week, two sources confirmed to Hollywood Life.
Hanging out at The Montage, known to be the Biebs favorite hotel, Jelena has been flourishing, reveals one of the sources.
“They’ve been poolside, they’ve had lunch in the dining room, and have had a drink in the bar…They have appeared flirty and very touchy-feely.”
Where does this leave Kourtney? Kardashian, 36, was seen partying with the 22-year-old singer on Wednesday night along with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, reported People, which cited a variety of sources confirming that Kourtney and Bieber were hooking up. The two got together after she split from baby daddy Scott Disick.
But in public, all signs of flirty fun between Kardashian and the singer have vanished.
“Justin and Kourtney were social, but you could tell they kept to themselves on purpose,” noted one of those sources.
The hookup between the Biebs and Kardashian began last autumn, according to IBT.
Since then, they’ve repeatedly sought ways to keep the romance alive while keeping it under the radar. When the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star attended his concert recently, she couldn’t resist admitting that she’s a Belieber on social media.
As for those repeated rumors swirling that Kardashian is pregnant with a Biebs baby? They’ve been denied by a variety of insiders, with a Biebs source calling the Kardashian pregnancy reports “B.S.”
With the romance between Kourtney and Justin staying at the casual level, is it up to Selena to take the next step in relighting the spark in her own romance with Bieber? Gomez seems to have done so by inviting him to reciprocate her appearance at his concert by joining her on tour, according to Hollywood Life‘s source.
And the invitation is open.
“[Bieber] has an open invitation and he can go to anything he wants and as many shows as he’d like as well,” clarified the source.
