Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have one of the most famous romantic relationships in the celebrity sphere, and they dated from 2011 until 2015. The pop prince and pop princess repeatedly broke up and then made up throughout that period. And even though their recent battle on Instagram over his recent girlfriend, Sofia Richie, caused some to speculate that Jelena (Justin + Selena) was forever gone, several new reports indicate that Bieber is hoping to rekindle his romance with Gomez.

One indication the Biebs wants to reunite with the “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” singer is that Bieber is paying for her stay in rehab, according to MTV Music.
“Justin still wants Sel in his life and is even paying for her recent stay in rehab.”
The rehab stay comes in the wake of Selena’s cancellation of the rest of her Revival Tour, and she shared that she had made the decision to focus on her health after struggling with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks.
“He’s been sending her hundreds of thousands to pay for everything from private jet bills to the recent stay in rehab,” revealed a source cited by MTV.
Bieber allegedly feels sorry about how he treated Gomez, so paying for her rehab both allows him to find a way to remain in her life and ease the guilt, added the insider.
“This is his way of staying in her life, as well as making himself feel less guilty for screwing her over.”
Justin is also showing that he still cares about Selena by praying for her, an insider told In Touch.

In addition, In Touch revealed why Bieber isn’t having an easy time knowing that Selena is “struggling in rehab,” and allegedly, he feels somewhat guilty. The media outlet told readers that Justin “may have also had a hand in Sel’s downward spiral,” citing a source who claims that Bieber’s romance with Richie caused Gomez’s “meltdown.”
That “downward spiral” was allegedly triggered by Justin’s decision to share photos on social media flaunting his romance with Sofia. Bieber focused on dating Richie and “ignored” Selena, which made matters worse, added the insider.
“The more he ignored [Selena], the more she freaked out.”
Now, however, Justin is “praying” that Gomez receives the treatment she needs to recover, according to the source. Bieber is reportedly joined by his family to send her healing wishes.
“Justin and his family just want Selena to get well,” said the insider.

However, Gossip Cop reports that although it is true that Gomez is being treated for emotional health concerns and lupus at a rehab facility in Tennessee, the allegations that Bieber is paying “hundreds of thousands to pay for everything” are not true.
A source close to Selena told Gossip Cop that it is “untrue” that Justin is paying for her treatment.
As for whether it’s possible that Bieber and Gomez could get back together, their epic war of words on Instagram over his photos flaunting his romance with Sofia caused speculation that Jelena was over.

Justin accused Selena of using him to get attention, while Gomez responded by accusing him of cheating “multiple times.” But despite that Instagram battle, Page Six cited sources who claimed that Bieber isn’t over his on again, off again girlfriend, with Selena reportedly feeling the same way.
“He was her first love, and he still has a major hold on her. If he texts her, her world stops.”
And despite their social media fight, Justin still has feelings for Selena, according to one of the insiders.
“They came up in this business together as sweethearts — those feelings will never go away,” contended that source.

However, when Gomez does get out of rehab, Bieber might have some problems trying to contact her because the Daily Mail reported that she changed her phone number to prevent him from calling her.
Just to make sure that Justin was unable to reach her, Selena asked her pals to keep her new number confidential and not give it to Bieber, according to the media outlet, which cited a source describing what happened as a result of Justin’s and Selena’s social media battle.
“She lost it,” explained the insider. “She can be fragile emotionally and Justin is a major factor.”
But this isn’t the first time that Gomez has cut off Bieber, with the Daily Mail revealing that it has happened “two or three times before.” However, Jelena fans continue to hope for a rekindled romance.
