Justin Bieber has achieved multiple success stories at only 22, from captivating sold-out concert crowds to singles that top the charts. But when it comes to his romantic life, the Biebs hasn’t been quite so successful at sustaining long-term girlfriends ever since he and Selena Gomez bid each other farewell. Instead, it’s been more of a game of musical chairs.
Justin and Selena seemed as if they would remain golden couples forever. But has Bieber’s affection for his girlfriend faded so much that Gomez will never again participate in his Girlfriend Musical Chairs game? Check out the timeline below to see what you think.
Jelena Fans Hope For Renewed Love
In March, those fond of the romance between Justin and Selena became even more hopeful when he posted a throwback photo showing them kissing, and she “liked it,” reported Hollywood Life, which cited insiders describing their secret feelings for each other.
What was behind that signal of approval for what seemed like a romance gone wrong?
“She always wants to keep him near so to speak and have her in his mind always,” one of the sources revealed.
As for how Bieber feels about Gomez, one of the insiders clarified that although he hopes for Selena’s happiness, the sight of her in a “serious relationship” would be challenging.
Justin Ditches Selena And Best Friend Taylor Swift For Team Kanye
However, after each seemed to signal that Jelena was over by dating other people, Bieber made his declaration of independence clear by ditching Selena and her best friend Taylor to join Team Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in their epic feud against Swift.
Justin made his move against Taylor and Gomez with an Instagram post, noted the Daily Beast.
The screenshot showed a FaceTime session that the “Sorry” singer had with Kanye. But it was the caption that completed his swapping of teams.
“Taylor Swift what up,” mocked Bieber.
That caption completed what many saw as a betrayal because Selena had been active on social media in defending her pal Taylor.
Hello Hailey Baldwin, Now Goodbye
As for who Justin has dated and then dumped since Gomez, Hailey Baldwin has succeeded in becoming one of the key players in his off-again-on-again love life cycle. But they quickly went from romance to see-ya time, and now Hailey is flaunting what looks like a diamond on her ring finger from a mystery man, noted Hollywood Life.
However, it’s assumed that the ring didn’t come from Bieber because he just completed a very hot visit to Hawaii, where he famously went skinny-dipping with sexy model Sahara Ray.
Kourtney Kardashian Cougar Love
Kourtney of Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality TV show fame has enjoyed her own opportunity to hold onto one of those Girlfriend Musical Chairs. Bieber and Kardashian began hooking up soon after she ended her romantic relationship with baby daddy Scott Disick.
Multiple media outlets, including Us Weekly and TMZ, confirmed that Justin and Kourtney were together, pointed out Wonderwall, citing Us’ sources.
“Justin bragged to friends recently that he has been hooking up with Kourtney Kardashian.”
The two enjoyed flirty fun, texting back and forth, but keeping it casual. Since then, they have continued to hook up occasionally, as the Inquisitr reported.
Nicola Peltz Competes With Skinny-Dipping Model?
Nicola Peltz then became linked to Bieber, and the Daily Mail noted that the two were seen on a dinner date in Beverly Hills. They also both attended the Saint Laurent event at the Hollywood Palladium.
But although Nicola is famed for her bikini body, she has some tough competition with another of the Biebs’ reported girlfriends. Hot model Sahara Ray enjoyed herself as Justin happily skinny-dipped with her on vacation, as the Inquisitr noted.
Sahara is famed as a supermodel and swimwear designer and is the daughter of a surfing legend, which may help her keep her balance in the girlfriends’ game.
Selena Warns Off Future Would-Be Bieber Girlfriends
And for all those women who are contemplating the odds of getting a chair in Justin’s special Girlfriends Musical Chairs game, Gomez has repeatedly issued a warning. Dating Bieber, she cautioned, means always being in the media spotlight, noted the Huffington Post.
Currently rumored to be another competitor in the Justin’s Girlfriends Musical Chairs game is Nicole Richie’s little sister, Sofia. But although Bieber, 22, caused fans to feel shocked at the news that he was spotted holding hands with the 17-year-old just after skinny-dipping with Sahara, an insider told Hollywood Life that this time the “Sorry” singer should be careful.
“Nicole is very protective,” revealed the source. “[She is] keeping an eye on her from a distance.”
