Selena Gomez's ex-boyfriend is praying for her

Selena Gomez And Justin Bieber: He’s Praying For Her Amid Rumors Of A Reconciliation

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may not be dating at the moment, but according to a new report, Bieber has Gomez on his mind.

As Justin Bieber tends to his “Purpose World Tour” in Europe, a source has spoken out and revealed that the 22-year-old singer is praying for his ex-girlfriend following an announcement in which Selena Gomez claimed she was suffering from anxiety, depression and panic attacks.

On October 24, In Touch Weekly magazine claimed Justin Bieber was concerned about Selena Gomez and “praying” for her recovery.

Selena Gomez’s stint in rehab was preceded by a major fight between her and Bieber on Instagram. Although the former couple has remained fairly civil since they ended their committed relationship in 2012, an August 2016 dispute between them appeared to be quite heated and some say the spat pushed Selena Gomez over the edge.

Last month, a Life & Style report claimed Selena Gomez blamed Justin Bieber for her troubles. According to the report, Selena Gomez felt “backed into a corner” after her ex-boyfriend went public with his relationship with Sofia Richie in August.

“It was really hard for [Selena Gomez]. She saw Justin looking so happy and that really sent her into a downward spiral,” the source explained.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber prompted rumors of a possible reunion at the end of last year when they were spotted walking together in Los Angeles. However, weeks later, Bieber traveled to Anguilla with Hailey Baldwin and his family to celebrate the holidays, which quickly shut down the possibility of a reconciliation with Selena Gomez.

Although Bieber and Baldwin appeared to be settling down into a committed relationship, Bieber ultimately set the record straight, revealing that he was not exclusive with anyone as he prepared for the start of his “Purpose World Tour,” which kicked off earlier this year. That said, he and Baldwin continued to be spotted together until May of this year, and the singer was also seen frequently with Kourtney Kardashian.

Amid Bieber’s relationships with Baldwin and Kardashian, the singer spoke out and appeared to be wanting to get back together with Selena Gomez. In March, as rumors swirled in regard to his potential romances with other women, Bieber took to Instagram where he posted a throwback photo of himself and Gomez along with the caption, “Feels.” Days later, Selena Gomez, who replied to the photo with the message, “Perfect,” was spotted in the audience at Bieber’s Los Angeles show.

While Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber haven’t been spotted together for the past several months, rumors continue to swirl in regard to their potential reunion. However, despite the reports, Gomez may be doing her best to avoid Bieber completely.

“Selena [Gomez] has thrown herself into work to help her forget about all the drama in her life,” a source explained to Hollywood Life prior to Gomez’s stint in rehab. “She has spent the last few days in Los Angeles taking meetings and talking with her managers about what projects to tackle next. Selena sees her passion for her career as a healthy escape from her relationship issues and other challenges she faces with her famous ex.”

“[Selena Gomez] is happy, driven and focused on making the right choice to keep her fans happy, whether that be getting back in the recording studio, making another movie or signing on for a new TV project,” the insider continued. “This week in LA has been about positive business moves for Selena as she keeps any negative drama out of her life.”
