Fans of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez as a couple (collectively known as Jelena) haven’t stopped hoping that the two would rekindle their romance. That became evident when, after Bieber was seen partying with bikini-clad beauties on vacation, Jelena fans promptly tagged Gomez, reported the Daily Mail.
Since Justin and Selena split, the “Sorry” singer has dated a long list of gal pals, ranging from Kourtney Kardashian, the 37-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, to Hailey Baldwin, a 19-year-old model. And as indicated by that video Bieber posted showing him partying by the pool with a quartet of bikini beauties, the 22-year-old pop music star loves staying single and free to mingle.
But the response to his video of the four women may not have been quite what Justin expected. The popular singer, who was spotted wandering around without shoes and wearing shorts and a baggy top, had his post used by Jelena fans to alert Selena about the situation.
Why the hope among those fans that Gomez and Bieber might renew their love? In March, Justin shared a throwback photo of the two kissing, with the caption “feels.” Selena responded with a comment, writing “Perfect.”
The two have occasionally reconciled or shown hints of a chance to renew their love since beginning their romance in 2011. Gomez recently confessed in an interview that she does still care about Bieber.
“I care about his health and well-being,” admitted Selena.
However, she confessed that the heartbreak she suffered has made it challenging to trust again.
“I don’t trust anybody,” commented the singer. “So dating can only be fun if I know I’m going to have fun.”
However, an insider told In Touch that Gomez secretly does still care for Bieber, even getting upset over his recent fling with Kourtney Kardashian. The source claimed that after Selena’s friend Christina Grimmie was tragically killed, Gomez made the decision that she loved Justin.
But when Selena attempted to persuade Bieber to try again, the timing reportedly was off because of Kourtney.
“Justin explained that he is quietly seeing Kourtney Kardashian again,” revealed the insider, who described Gomez as “enraged.”
But that knowledge of Bieber’s fling with Kourtney hasn’t stopped Selena from continuing to pursue Justin, according to a source cited by OK! Magazine.
“Now [Gomez] is incessantly calling, texting, and emailing him. She’s determined to get [Bieber] back.”
However, Gossip Cop investigated the report that Selena is attempting to rekindle her romance with Justin, citing a source who says that he never talked with Gomez about “quietly seeing” Kourtney. The allegation that Selena is chasing Justin via email, phone calls, and texts is also “false,” according to that insider.
So should Jelena fans surrender? Not according to Hollywood Life, which reports that Gomez just hinted at several different possibilities that would link her at least musically to Bieber again.
Selena unveiled what some speculate is her own cover of her former boyfriend’s “Let Me Love You,” thought possibly to be a way to attract Justin. Because Bieber’s song is on an upcoming album (set to be released August 5), fans will have to wait to see if Gomez is actually included or if she’s planning a longer cover.
In addition, Gomez recently was seen dancing at a nightclub to Justin’s new “Cold Water” track, showing no shame in displaying her enjoyment of his music, noted Hollywood Life.
Bieber posted a video in June in which he was talking with a pal about his street fight. However, fans cared more about the fact that in the background, Selena’s famed “Same Old Love” was sounding loud and clear.
Are they sending secret messages to each other that Jelena is still alive? What do you think? Post your comments below.
