Amid reports of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s PDA-packed bowling date on Sunday, it’s been revealed the Canadian singer has now unfollowed Yovanna Ventura — the model he was seeing as recently as July.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed the 20-year-old heartthrob unfollowed Yovanna on Wednesday.
It set off online speculation that Justin and Selena’s latest reunion is serious, and strongly suggests he is committing exclusively to their relationship.
Last week, Justin confirmed under oath that he is dating Selena during a deposition in an ongoing lawsuit. The couple then spent a loved-up weekend together.
On Saturday, the pair were spotted in Las Vegas for Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Welterweight bout with Marcos Maidana. They were then seen showing PDA at the Lucky Strike bowling venue in L.A. on Sunday, while celebrating the 20th birthday of the Biebs’ childhood buddy Ryan Butler.
Citing an eyewitness E! News reports, “Justin rented out Lucky Strike’s Luxe room for the celebration.”
“Additionally, he was seen kissing and flirting with his on-and-off again girlfriend, Selena Gomez,” the insider said.
The source added, “The group, of about 12 people in all, enjoyed some of Lucky Strike’s Esteban’s Nacho’s Grande, Cheeseburgers and wings.”
“Specifically, Justin was seen eating the Mac & Cheese bites.”

Fans got an opportunity to see the radiant look of love Selena gives her beau at one point during the festivities, thanks to a (since deleted) photo tweeted by Ryan’s girlfriend, Ashley Guindon.
For his part, Justin wasn’t looking at the “Come & Get It” songstress at that very moment the snap was taken. But, the massive smile on his face seems to indicate he was in good spirits that night.
Fast forward to Wednesday, tellingly the same day that he unfollowed Yovanna, the Biebs reposted Ashley’s photo on his Instagram page.
“Hope u had a good bday @ryanbutler,” Justin wrote in his caption.
As previously reported by E! News, fitness model Yovanna and Justin met on Instagram.
Dominican-descent Yovanna was first seen sneaking out of a Miami recording studio with Bieber in April, then again in May while on a date in Venice Beach after he took her to see Mayweather’s previous fight with Maidana in Las Vegas.

Confusingly, throughout this period Selena was seen with Justin until they fell out in April amid rumors involving the Jenner sisters, an argument at Coachella and the Latina star’s infamous unfollowing of everyone on Instagram.
Relationship musical chairs ensued once more in June when Jelena reunited for a string of dates, shortly before a certain Casanova hooked up with Yovanna in July.
However, since August, Justin and Selena seem to be enjoying happier times and recently returned from a getaway to his native country.
And if their PDA-filled bowling date is anything to go by, it appears the on-off lovebirds are still going strong after four turbulent years.
Incidentally, on Tuesday a Gomez-fan Twitter account noticed the Spring Breakers actress left a comment on Instagram asking a user to delete a nasty remark about Yovanna under a picture that was subsequently deleted.

A further sign that Justin and Selena are in a romantic sweetspot right now could be read into the comedy Instagram video he posted Wednesday.
