Justin Bieber Has ‘Moved On’ With Sofia Richie As Selena Gomez Continues ‘Downward Spiral’?


Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie are reportedly going strong as the singer’s ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, addresses her mental health struggles during a break from her tour.

According to a new report, Gomez expected her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, to reach out to her after learning she had canceled her tour due to anxiety and depression struggles, but according to a new report, he has not called and Gomez is said to be headed in a “downward spiral.”

“He’s moved on,” a source close to Justin Bieber told Life & Style magazine on September 16. “She needs to accept that.”

Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie began seeing one another in early August. At the time, the rumored couple was seen together in Laguna Beach with a couple of people. Then during a trip to Japan a short time later, Justin Bieber confirmed his romance with Richie with a series of photos of the two of them together on Instagram.

As fans will surely recall, one particular photo shared from Japan led to controversy after Gomez left a comment under Bieber’s post. Following Bieber’s threat to his fans, in which he claimed he would make his account private if they didn’t stop being mean to his girlfriend, Gomez told Justin Bieber to quit sharing pictures of himself and Sofia Richie and reminded him that his fans have been there from the start and loved him dearly.

After seeing what his ex-girlfriend had said, Justin Bieber fired back, claiming that the “Same Old Love” singer was using him for attention. Bieber even suggested she had cheated on him with Zayn Malik after she claimed he cheated on her “multiple” times during their two-year relationship.

While Justin Bieber quit Instagram a short time after the accusations were made, his romance with Sofia Richie has continued and just days after his fight with his ex, he and his new leading lady traveled to Mexico where they enjoyed a romantic vacation in honor of her 18th birthday.

Since their relationship began, Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie have spent tons of time together in Los Angeles and around the world, but now the singer has returned to his hectic tour schedule, which currently has him in Europe.

Although Sofia Richie has been seeing her boyfriend, Justin Bieber, a lot less in the last week, she reportedly has plans to see her beau soon.

“[Sofia]’s going to be seeing [Justin Bieber] soon anyway,” a source close to the couple told Hollywood Life last week. “He invited her to come meet up with him in Europe and she’s planning to take him up on the offer.”

According to the report, Sofia Richie confirmed the news of her impending trip to Europe by sharing a new passport photo with her fans on SnapChat. That said, it is unclear when Sofia Richie will be able to join her man on tour.

Justin Bieber has tonight off after playing three shows in Germany, but tomorrow, September 20, his “Purpose World Tour” will continue with a couple of shows in Paris, France, followed by two shows in Norway, two shows in Finland, and two shows in Sweden. From there, Justin Bieber will continue to travel Europe until the end of November.

As Justin Bieber tends to his career in music, Sofia Richie has been busy as well and recently played a part in Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 fashion show in New York City.
