Has Justin Bieber ended things with Sofia Richie?
According to several reports, this seems to be the case after the singer was seen holding hands with his new girlfriend, model Bronte Blampied, Celeb Dirty Laundry alleges.
According to the outlet, Justin was flaunting Bronte to onlookers in London, ahead of his performance at the V Festival. Fans were already wondering why Sofia hadn’t accompanied her boyfriend on his trip to Europe, but it appears that this is all down to the fact that Richie and Bieber are no longer together.

Were they ever dating?
According to CDL, Sofia and Justin were never really a couple, to begin with. For all that fans know, they could’ve fooled the public to believe they were hooking up in the hopes of increasing Richie’s popularity on social media, especially now that the 17-year-old has made it known she wants to become a model in the near future.
Justin Bieber’s popularity would definitely come handy in making that happen, a source explains. But whether or not this is actually the case is still unclear. One thing that’s for sure is that Bieber and Bronte definitely appeared as a couple once arriving at the V Festival together.
“He and the model – who also happens to be close friends with Sofia Richie – spend six hours at a luxury spa before his headline set at the V Festival. What’s more, he was also spotted leaving Tape nightclub with the blonde beauty while Sofia Richie was spotted back in Los Angeles looking somber and upset.”

As the source mentions, Sofia and Bronte are known to be pals, which makes their outing that much more confusing for fans to comprehend. For Justin and Bronte to a enjoy six-hour spa day together while Sofia is out in Los Angeles by herself has left Bieber’s army of die-hard fans puzzled as to whether or not the singer is actually in a relationship with the 17-year-old or not.
And if it turns out that he’s not, could he really be that reckless to go on and date someone that’s known to be a friend to Sofia?
Justin Bieber, as Celeb Dirty Laundry reports, is unbothered by the opinions of others, and this showed when he stepped out holding hands with Bronte, just one week after slamming ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez for slamming his relationship with Sofia.
Bieber was said to have been livid when Selena mocked Justin and Sofia’s romance, saying that if the twosome don’t want to be attacked on social media by their fans, they should refrain themselves from posting endless photos of themselves all over Instagram and Twitter.

Justin considered it to be quite a dig at him and Sofia, and therefore, wasted no time in replying to Selena, claiming that she only used him for fame and publicity, before continuing by stressing that Gomez allegedly cheated on him with pop star Zayn Malik, a revelation that left fans completely stunned.
It’s unclear where Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie stand as far as their relationship stands, Page Six adds, but from what has been gathered, the singer is actually dating Bronte Blampied. This would evidently mean that the Sofia romance on Instagram was a publicity stunt to promote Richie and put her on the scene with potential fashion agencies that will help her land her dream career of becoming a full-time model.
