Selena Gomez is currently focused on her career — not a reunion with her former boyfriend, Justin Bieber, or her rumored flame Niall Horan.
Although there have been many rumors as of late which suggest the 24-year-old singer may be on the verge of getting back together with Bieber, a new report claims Selena Gomez has no such plans.
“[Selena Gomez] is very focused on her upcoming music while Bieber has said multiple times he is not looking for serious relationship,” Thy Black Man explained to readers on December 10.
Selena Gomez has not yet announced plans for new music and weeks ago, a source told Hollywood Life that she was planning to focus on herself and her friends. The source also revealed that due to her ongoing recovery, Selena Gomez was reportedly steering clear of serious relationships.
“For the time being she’s been advised not to date,” the source explained. “Plus, dating is pretty much the last thing on her mind now. She is focused on herself and spending time with close friends.”
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber began dating in 2010 and parted ways in late 2012. However, they have frequently reunited with one another in the years since and often sparked rumors of a possible reconciliation. Most recently, earlier this year, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber fueled rumors of a romance by engaging in a flirty exchange on Instagram.
In March, amid rumors of romances with both Hailey Baldwin and Kourtney Kardashian, Justin Bieber posted a photo of himself and Selena Gomez standing together in a swimming pool. In the caption, he wrote, “Feels.” Then, a short time later, Gomez responded to the photo by sharing a comment of her own, which read, “Perfect.”
Days after their social media encounter, Selena Gomez and her ex-boyfriend sparked rumors of a reunion yet again when she was spotted in the audience during his “Purpose World Tour” show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Although Selena Gomez openly showed her support for Bieber at the event, they haven’t been seen together since and have had no known communication with one another since Bieber began spending time with Sofia Richie over the summer — other than their highly-publicized Instagram feud in August.
After Bieber and Richie faced backlash after sharing a photo of themselves together on Instagram, Bieber threatened to make his Instagram account private and Selena Gomez immediately weighed in. In a comment to her former boyfriend, Selena Gomez slammed Bieber for taking aim at his fans and reminded him that they are the ones who have been with him since the start of his career. In response, Bieber accused Selena Gomez of using him for attention.
As Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber continued to feud in the comments section of his photo, they both accused the other of being unfaithful and ultimately, Bieber deleted his account.
While Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber don’t appear to have had any interaction with one another since Gomez’s return to the spotlight last month, singer Niall Horan has openly expressed interest in dating the 24-year-old singer. During an interview with Ryan Seacrest weeks ago, the One Direction band member encouraged Seacrest to help him sort out his potential reconciliation with Gomez and just days after that, he said she was beautiful during another interview.
In addition, Horan posted a kind message to Selena Gomez on his Twitter page in response to her emotional speech at the 2016 American Music Awards.
“Just watching the show back from last night. Really great show. Loved it. Love to [Selena Gomez] for the speech, brave young woman,” he wrote.
