Does Selena Gomez want to get back together with Justin Bieber?
While the 23-year-old actress and singer is currently busy with her Revival World Tour, which will soon take her to Asia for a series of shows in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, and the Philippines, rumors have been swirling in regard to the possibility of a reconciliation with her ex-boyfriend.
On July 13, Hall of Fame magazine shared details of a reported phone call between Selena Gomez and her former beau, revealing Gomez had suggested a reunion after reevaluating her life following the tragic murder of her friend, Christina Grimmie. During the call, Selena Gomez allegedly expressed her interest in getting back together with Bieber years after their split, but unfortunately, she was said to have gotten “dumped” in lieu of 37-year-old reality star Kourtney Kardashian.

Selena Gomez “called her former boyfriend to tell him that she still loves him,” the outlet explained, but he “had no desire to reignite his romance with her because of Kourtney Kardashian.”
The insider even claimed Selena Gomez had been calling and texting her former boyfriend non-stop in hopes of convincing him to give their love another chance. “She’s determined to get him back,” a source told In Touch Weekly magazine.
However, a second insider spoke to Gossip Cop and claimed the report was not true.
A source close to the situation told Gossip Cop that it was “disgusting” that In Touch Weekly would use a woman’s death as the basis of a “false” story, and confirmed Selena Gomez’s reported call to Bieber never took place.
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber dated from 2010 to 2012 and in the year since, they have remained friends. That said, the romance between them appears to have died down, and despite an Instagram shoutout by Bieber earlier this year, they both appear to have moved on from the relationship.
While Selena Gomez is currently single, she has enjoyed a number of rumored romances since her relationship with the singer came to an end and was recently linked to Orlando Bloom. Still, when it comes to her ex-boyfriend, Selena Gomez will likely always have a place in her heart for Bieber and the love they shared.

Weeks ago, after Bieber was involved in a physical altercation with a much larger man outside of an arena in Cleveland, Ohio, a source claimed Selena Gomez had grown concerned and was hoping to help her ex-boyfriend before his behavior spiraled out of control.
“[Selena Gomez] hates seeing him get in trouble all the time because she honestly feels she could have helped him and still could help him,” a source explained to Hollywood Life last month. “It is always an uphill battle for her because he is so stubborn, but she always feels that she should be there for him because in her mind they have such a strong connection. She really just wants him to be healthy and happy.”
“[Selena Gomez] hates seeing [him] get into fights,” the insider continued. “She thinks that it is really stupid and does nothing positive for him at all. She’s just thankful that he’s okay and it wasn’t anything more serious.”
After Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriend was involved in the shocking altercation, he joked about the incident on his social media account, claiming that he didn’t have a mark on his face, despite the dramatic fight.
