Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez step out together at Coachella with public PDA. Hold the ‘older man’ rumor, Jelena rides again.
Finally the hedging can stop. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are evidently reunited and were seen holding hands backstage at Coachella on Sunday, according to other festival-goers at the celebrity-magnet event.
Now there are pictures showing the pair standing next to each other, watching the Jhene Aiko performance on Sunday.
As hipsters erupted in shock when Chicago MC Chance The Rapper introduced a bucket-hat wearing Bieber during a stomping afternoon set, Selena was seen by an eyewitness watching the duo perform their collaborative “Confident” single from the side of the stage.

E! News reports a source saw Justin walking with his girl just before going onstage, adding another source said the pair “seemed content” and “were having a good time in each other’s company.”
If even further proof were needed that Bieber and Gomez have taken the big plunge and are once again “K.I.S.S.I.N.G,” another eyewitness told People:
“Right after his performance Bieber walked off stage and watched the rest of Chance’s set with Selena Gomez.”
The source went on, “They were there for around 15 minutes until Bieber touched Gomez on her mid back as if to say, ‘Let’s go,’ and the two left together.”

It seems small that detail – the touch of Selena’s back by Justin – but it could be taken as an intimacy that speaks volumes.
Selena also made time for her girlfriends and arrived at the Indio, California, music and arts three-day throwdown with a large group of gals — including sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner — with each dressed in boho meets rocker-lite chic.
Clearly enjoying their time in the sun, the ladies posed for stylish Instagram photos.

Of late, Selena seems to be making changes that may indicate she is moving people out of her life who object to her resumed relationship with Bieber.
During her revealing speech at the We Day conference in California in March 26 she told an audience of kids: “I’m surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me and some of them have and others haven’t. They pressure me; there’s so much pressure.”
“Until recently, I had given in to that pressure, I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people, and I try to change who I am because I thought others would accept me for it and I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself.”
The 21-year-old subsequently fired her mom and step-dad as her manager and is looking for a new record deal and representation.
There’s been a lot of talk about Selena’s unsteady arrival at the Hit Factory studio when she visited Justin while he worked with 15-year-old singer Madison Beer, with some bringing up her January rehab stint and suggesting Gomez was drunk.
We can’t claim to know if there was a serious issue behind Gomez appearing to need some support as she walked, but the “Come & Get It” singer seemed happy and focused enough in a photo with the “Melodies” singer posted on Instagram by Madison’s mom, Tracie Beer.
While there appears to be no end in sight to the rumors surrounding either star, at the very least Bieber and Gomez’s public coming out at Coachella appear to undermine the so-called “source” in Radar Online’s latest item, claiming Selena is “over” Justin and “ready to date an older man.”
As The Inquisitr previously reported, some “sources” just aren’t as credible as they present themselves to be.
How do you feel about Bieber and Gomez rekindling their Jelena romance and coming out at Coachella?
Will they go the distance or this yet another on-again phase?
