A source close to Justin Bieber is revealing that Justin “wants Selena to be happy” after their 2014 breakup.
A source close to Bieber recently opened up about how Justin feels regarding the possibility of Gomez dating someone new to Hollywood Life, admitting that although Justin wants Selena to find a new man, he thinks it will be “hard” to see her with someone new.
“The thought of seeing Selena in a serious relationship with someone else would definitely be hard to swallow,” the insider close to Justin allegedly told Hollywood Life this week, adding that all Bieber wants for Selena following their breakup is for “her to be happy.”
“He hopes she can forgive him for past hurts and not let all that old drama stifle her love life or more importantly her self-esteem,” the source continued.
Hollywood Life’s insider also revealed how Bieber felt about Selena’s supposed “apprehension” when it comes to falling in love again, where the source admitted that Justin never intended or wanted to put Gomez off dating again after their big split almost two years ago.
“Justin feels awful that Selena thinks relationships are hard after they dated,” the site’s source confessed, “He never, ever wanted to hurt her or make her have a bad taste in her mouth about future relationships because of their own ups and downs.”
Reports that Justin wants Selena to get back into the dating game come just days after a source revealed to Hollywood Life that Gomez was worried she wouldn’t find love again in the wake of her on/off four-year romance with Justin.
“She is very apprehensive in trying something new or being set up because she believes it is doomed to fail from the start for a plethora of reasons,” the source revealed earlier this week of how Selena supposedly feels about getting into a relationship with someone new, adding that Gomez jokes that she’s “going to be single forever” with her closest friends.
“[Selena] covers those emotions up though by always working, she now wants to be continuously busy whether it is with her tour or doing films,” Hollywood Life’s insider continued. “It gives her an excuse to not stress on meeting a guy.”
The latest Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber relationship talk comes just weeks after Gomez candidly admitted in a new interview with W Magazine that she is “so done” when it comes to her past rocky romance with the “What Do You Mean” singer, which lasted from 2010 until 2014.
Telling the magazine that she was “so exhausted” by her former relationship with Bieber, Selena admitted last month that she “so done” before adding, “I care about his health and well-being. But I can’t do it anymore.”
“To me it was: I’m 18, I have a boyfriend, we look cute together, we like that. Then I got my heart broken and I cared,” Gomez continued to the publication in February of the intense media scrutiny that constantly followed herself and Justin over their four-year romance.
“People had no idea what was going on, but everywhere it was a million different things I was kind of in a corner, banging my head against the wall. I didn’t know where to go,” Selena Gomez admitted.
Selena also opened up about that heartbreak to Refinery29, where she revealed that she and Bieber have both gotten closure following their break-up.
“There’s closure in a very good, healthy way. We’ve seen each other,” Selena revealed, admitting that there’s “no anger” between the former couple anymore.
“I’m always encouraging and I am proud of his journey,” Selena Gomez said Justin Bieber. “I think people are making it out to be something that is more tragic than it really was. We grew up together. We both made mistakes. That’s it.”
