Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were inseparable at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival over the weekend. The photos tell the story. Jelena is back.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were inseparable at the 2014 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.
Captured in photos while watching Jhene Aiko’s reportedly assured set, it’s one of the big stories from the celebrity-favorite event.
The couple’s relationship has fascinated and infuriated Jelena fans throughout their turbulent three-year history, but for now the horizon seems loved-up and bright.
Although Selena was spotted arriving with sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner and hanging out with a group of boho-rocker attired gal-pals on Friday – by Sunday, the brunette beauty was at Justin’s side after his en route detour to pick up a massive order of Mexican food.

The casually dressed, bucket-hat wearing Canadian gave Coachella hipsters a big reason to either tune in or drop out when he hit the stage as surprise guest and hype man for Chicago MC Chance The Rapper.
The duo performed a stomping version of their collaborative song “Confident” which was a single on Bieber’s Journals album (2013).
“Thanks coachella for showing so much love. Good times,” Justin tweeted afterwards.
According to Us Weekly, Selena cheered Justin on from the side of the stage after walking through the all-access back area holding hands.
“They both had on sunglasses and had their heads down like they didn’t want to be noticed,” a source told the publication.

Bieber and Gomez were reportedly later seen getting up close and personal while watching Calvin Harris’ set.
“They were dancing slow right next to each other, swaying around. [They] were whispering to each other, laughing, [and] standing close together… surrounded by four bodyguards backstage,” another insider told Us.
While People magazine reports:
“Right after his performance Bieber walked off stage and watched the rest of Chance’s set with Selena Gomez,” a source said.
The eyewitness added, “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.
Rumors that Bieber and Gomez’s on-again, off-again relationship sparked when images of them riding Segways around Justin’s former Calabasas, California, neighborhood surfaced in January, followed by a bittersweet Instagram of the pair.
But on January 5 the “Come & Get It” singer checked into rehab, reportedly over difficulties dealing with their break-up.
Then, all hell broke loose when Bieber allegedly egged his estranged ex-neighbor’s house in Calabasas, before being arrested on suspicion of DUI on January 23 in Florida and charged with assault in his native Canada, just six days later.
Fast forward to March, the pair blitzed McAllen, Texas, with reported PDA moments capped by two jaw-dropping dance videos, Selena’s recent visit to see Justin at Miami’s Hit Factory recording studio amid mounting and sometimes ridiculous reports about their duet.

Those reports won’t be stopping any time soon.
The latest, an item of embarrassingly off the mark gossip claiming the actress-singer is now “ready to date an older man,” is exposed as a non-story by Justin and Selena’s clearly cozy Coachella date.
As for Jelena, the couple haven’t directly addressed the status of their relationship.
But with these photos — do they really need to?
