A lot of people are making a fuss over a snap Justin Bieber posted to Instagram on Sunday. The image shows him standing in front of a girl sitting on a black Audi, whose face isn’t visible.
The pic, which is new (based on the Biebs’ fresh wing tattoo) prompted Us Weekly to ask: “Is Justin Bieber Dissing Kourtney Kardashian’s Ex Scott Disick in New Instagram Post?”
The magazine’s speculation focused on Bieber’s caption, which reads, “Lords Knows.” Disick’s nickname for himself is “The Lord.”
But while fans and media outlets get their head around Jourtney, it turns out this new Instagram picture of Bieber and an (initially) mystery woman isn’t about Disick and Kardashian at all.
In addition, “Lord Knows” is the name of a Drake track. It features on his 2011 album, Take Care. Bieber and Drizzy are pals, and if you’ve ever spent time trawling the younger artist’s Instagram, he often shares rap lyrics.
Back to that detective work. A comment left by a model, Celeste Bright, signed to the Los Angeles wing of the Wilhelmina modelling agency, claimed the female in the singer’s pic is model Jasmine Villanueva, who is signed to the Otto Models — a agency located in Newport Beach, California.
Fans captured Bright’s comment.

All becomes much clearer with paparazzi shots that surfaced on Sunday. One roll shows Justin’s friend, producer Maejor Ali, taking photos of Jasmine and the heartthrob in front of the Audi, in what’s believed to be Newport Beach. See pics in the link below.

The snaps show the pair interacting closely.
A pic of the Biebs surrounded by female company on a yacht, captioned “Good times good people good luck,” also popped up on the singer’s Instagram last night.
So, what does it all mean? Who the heck knows? Possibly not even the Biebs. And, since the “Sorry” singer and Kourtney’s May to December relationship isn’t serious and is all about “fun,” is there any need for the question?
While the “Love Yourself” singer is a longtime family friend of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Jourtney news sparked after Kourtney was snapped leaving Bieber’s hotel — the Beverly Hills Montage — at 4.a.m. on Saturday, December 12.
Hours before, on Friday night, the mother-of-three and the hitmaker hung out with friends at celebrity hotspot The Nice Guy in West Hollywood, before going on to the karaoke bar, Blind Dragon.
Although Kourtney left earlier than Bieber — standard diversionary tactic? — she was later seen beaming as she left the Montage.
Kourtney and her younger sister, Kendall, were guests at Bieber’s Comedy Central Roast event in March.
Fast forward to October, the Kourt dined with the singer at The Nice Guy, before taking a trip to Universal Studios for some Halloween fun.
The reality star was also a guest at the Biebs’ post-AMAs party to celebrate his new album, Purpose, on November 22.
Kourtney separated from Disick after he was snapped canoodling with his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Bartoli, in Monte Carlo in July. Disick has three children with Kardashian –Mason (6), Penelope (2,) and Reign, who is 1-year-old today. The parents are reportedly amicable for the sake of their kids, but do not intend to reunite.
Us Weekly called Jasmine’s pose in Bieber’s pic a “compromising position.” Over at Mail Online, the U.K. tabloid dubbed Justin’s stance as “standing seductively.” Is Selena Gomez a motivating factor here?
The actress-singer was seen hanging around The X-Factor stage set in London on Sunday, where One Direction performed yesterday. Despite the starlet recently shutting down rumors that she is dating boy bander Niall Horan, Gomez was also seen emerging from a London after-party with him last night.
Meanwhile, Us Weekly claims the Biebs has “bragged to friends recently that he has been hooking up with Kourtney Kardashian.”
The magazine added, “Every time Kourtney and Justin are together they’re extremely flirtatious. They text each other all the time.”
Certainly, no one saw this union coming. But, since both the 36-year-old mom and the 21-year-old pop icon are single and fancy free, they can do exactly as they please.
