Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may not be dating, but they aren’t exactly estranged. Although reports earlier this month claimed Bieber was romancing Kourtney Kardashian, he may also want to get back with Selena Gomez.
Selena Gomez and Bieber, also known by fans as Jelena, have a long history together. As fans will recall, the singers began dating in 2010 and made their red carpet debut at Vanity Fair‘s Oscar party in February 2011. From there, Selena Gomez and Bieber embarked on a number of lovey-dovey outings before parting ways in November 2012.
Since their split, Selena Gomez and Bieber have been seen together numerous times, which has led to ongoing rumors of their possible reconciliation. And despite Bieber’s ties to other women, including Kardashian and Hailey Baldwin, he seems to always end up back with Selena Gomez.
Most recently, just weeks before People Magazine claimed Bieber was hooking up with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star — and had been for months — Bieber reached out to Selena Gomez on Instagram. Along with a throwback photo of the two of them kissing years ago, Bieber wrote, “feels,” and in response, Selena Gomez said, “perfect.” Then, just days after their social media flirtation, Selena Gomez was spotted in the audience at one of Bieber’s Los Angeles shows.

Around that time, an E! News report claimed Bieber was hoping to get back together with Selena Gomez and had planned a super romantic night for the two of them after his show. However, something went awry and the plan was ultimately called off.
“Justin wanted to rent out the Staples Center after his concert to do a repeat date night screening of Titanic for [Selena Gomez] because he is trying to get back with her,” an source revealed to E! News on March 28. “I don’t know why he didn’t go through with it, and I also don’t know if he ever even told [Selena Gomez] about his plan, but I do know he is really obviously trying to date her again. He wanted to do something big and extravagant for her like this and had been making arrangements for the movie date before his concert even started.”
According to the insider, Bieber hadn’t been himself all day and actually ended up leaving his concert early with Selena Gomez, which forced Skrillex to close the show by himself.
“He cancelled his meet and greet that fans paid $2000 for,” the source continued. “During his concert between songs, he was alluding to the fact that he wasn’t happy to be there. At one point during the concert he was just lying on the stage not singing, just letting the track run.”
While there was no official confirmation regarding what had happened with Bieber, or what had taken place between him and Selena Gomez, the source claimed the former couple may have gotten into an argument.
“The speculation is that an argument had taken place between the two before the show since he cancelled the date plans,” said the source. “Something had shifted Bieber’s mood completely.”

In addition to communicating with one another here and there, Selena Gomez is said to be supportive of Bieber’s current Purpose Tour and Bieber is said to be missing his former flame.
