Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may have reignited dating rumors earlier this week after the duo were photographed hanging out together; however, sources close to the former couple are now speaking out about the nature of Gomez and Bieber’s poolside date.
Hollywood Life was the first to report Gomez and Bieber’s alleged reunion, providing photo evidence of the duo hanging out together in a private cabana at a hotel in Los Angeles, C.A. While fans took to Twitter to gush over a potential Jelena reunion, sources close to Selena have shut down reconciliation rumors, insisting that she and Justin are nothing more than amicable exes at this point, E! Online reports.
“They are still friendly with each other. They are not back together, nor does [Selena] want to be.
Similarly, another source notes that while the duo may be back on speaking terms, they are far from being a couple once again.
To make matters more interesting, Gomez was also spotted hanging with previously rumored boyfriend Orlando Bloom just hours after making headlines for her rendezvous with Bieber. Selena was photographed heading to Orlando’s home later that same evening with a group of girlfriends by her side.
Despite rumors that suggest Gomez is getting revenge on Bieber by hanging out with Bloom, who famously punched Justin in the face for allegedly making crude remarks about Bloom’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr, Gomez insiders insist that the duo are just really good friends.
The latest round of Selena dating rumors comes just days after the songstress dropped some major hints about her upcoming album on Instagram.
Gomez teased a few behind-the-scenes videos and pictures of herself recording her new album, which is widely believed to be inspired by her former relationship with Bieber.
Selena took to Instagram on Friday to share a video of herself recording what appears to be a new track off of her upcoming album. In the grainy clip, Gomez can be seen singing into the microphone as a few friends play ping pong in the background, Daily Mail reports.
Gomez also shared a sultry black-and-white photo of herself to her Instagram account with the caption, “…leading you #soon,” potentially hinting at the name of her new single while giving fans a sneak peek into the track’s cover art. In addition, Gomez shared a snap of herself resting her feet up while taking a break from her grueling recording schedule, hinting to fans that she may be working on a new Bieber-inspired single with the caption, “Kill. ‘Em. With. Kindness.”
With Gomez’s new album promises to be more “adult-sounding” and “honest,” perhaps Selena is getting closer to Bieber to help spark some inspiration for her new music?
