Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez’s ‘Unconditional Love’ Fascinates And Confuses

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are doing that on and off, are they / aren’t they dance again. The Biebs posted then deleted an intimate Instagram of himself and Selena. Now we’re all wondering, this time, maybe this time…

Justin Bieber lit a match to the Internet when he shared a tender Instagram photo of him and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez on Wednesday, before quickly deleting it.

The 20-year-old singer captioned the black and white image, “Our love is Unconditional.”

Despite Bieber pulling the photo off the site, many of his over 16 million followers captured and reposted it.

The tableau shows Selena in full earth mother mode cradling a seemingly distraught Justin’s head. His latest tattoo of the word “Patience” is clearly visible.

As fans and media know sharing and deleting Instagrams is kind of Bieber’s thing.

Back in March, the Canadian posted red-carpet snaps of Selena’s golden dress moment at Vanity Fair’s Oscars bash, writing, “Most elegant princess in the world.”

Later that month, Bieber posted and deleted two very sexualized Instagram videos of him and Gomez dancing to John Legend’s enduring classic “Ordinary People.” At the time, the clips capped a PDA-filled Texas getaway for the pair and put the world on notice that Jelena was back in action.

Later sightings of Justin and Selena came to an abrupt halt at the Coachella Festival in April, amid speculation that Bieber’s alleged flirting with Kylie and Kendall Jenner was a flirt too far for the Disney alum. Instagram unfollows of the sisters by Selena just days later appeared to confirm the rumors.

For fans, the ups and downs of Jelena is part of the fascination and the fury. The twosome first split in November 2012 after dating for two years, and have seen each other on and off ever since.

Last month, Bieber blitzed a supermodel-strewn trail through the exclusive party circuit in Cannes, France during the Film Festival.

Hungarian model Barbara Palvin was one of a reported few to catch the young buck’s eye.

At the same time, Selena hit Nepal in her role as a UNICEF ambassador, to raise awareness for the organization’s mandate to “bring education, nutrition, health and protection to those [children] living in extreme poverty.”

Amid various Instagrams from Selena about “taking my power back” then partying in London with Katy Perry, One Direction’s Niall Horan, models/actresses Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevingne, everything pointed to a definitive parting of the ways for the former sweethearts.

But, it seems the racism storm that ignited after a UK tabloid published a five-years-old video of Bieber using the N-word as a young teenager, followed by a second racial slur clip put out by the singer through TMZ — prompted Selena’s dash to Justin’s side in Canada to comfort the reportedly “devastated” heartthrob.

Whatever Selena might have done, it appears to have done the trick. No doubt Bieber is still feeling the heat from being judged over very old missteps. But he was back in a Los Angeles recording studio with Cody Simpson on Tuesday into the wee hours.

Simpson later tweeted an intriguing hint that the song is about “love and women.”

After posting (then deleting) his “Unconditional” Instagram, Justin was visibly more active on his social media accounts than of late, notably tweeting “New beginnings” once more.

So, has Selena returned to get Justin through a difficult period or is the actress-singer back for good?

We’ve asked those questions throughout the Believe” star’s tumultuous 15 month ride, while Selena previously told Mail Online:

“I will always care about Justin no matter what. My instinct after all we have been through is to protect him from any harm.”

Of course, only Bieber and Gomez can know if their show of togetherness is for keeps or for crisis.

But if you have a view on Jelena’s journey, let us know in comments below.
