It happened: Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are officially back together. Us Weekly reports that the on-and-off couple have rekindled their romance again, three years after their last breakup. But Selena always had feelings for Justin. Her friends want her to be cautious because she has been in such a good place post-surgery. News of Jelena's revival comes less than a week after it was reported that Gomez and The Weeknd broke up after 10 months together. She was seen hanging out with Bieber shortly before and after the breakup news hit, but sources say the Purpose singer wasn't a factor in her recent split.

The internet is abuzz with rumors that the singer, 28, was spotted dining with Miami Heat player Jimmy Butler, per the Miami Herald and celebrity gossip Instagram account Deuxmoi. The account first posted a screenshot of a user claiming to overhear the staff at French bistro Lucien in the East Village scrambling to accommodate Gomez and a crew of basketball players last month. Butler was previously linked to model Kaitlin Nowak and they share a daughter, Rylee, 1. They seemed to be on good terms as recently as September as the model celebrated the Heat making the NBA finals. Meanwhile, Gomez said in a September interview that her dating life was put on pause amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But after a whirlwind romance of tagging each other on Instagram, being spotted out and about on date nights, and showing public displays of affection on nearly every red carpet they walked together, the couple split just 10 months later. That was when People first reported the breakup news, at least, but it's possible they called it quits a little earlier: just days before, Gomez was famously spotted hanging out with her on-and-off boyfriend, Justin Bieber , and The Weeknd reportedly unfollowed Gomez's family, friends, and staff on Instagram. It's been hard for them to come to the realization that this is the direction things were heading. Thankfully, this former couple reportedly remained in touch after ending things on amicable terms. So what went wrong if things were still good between them?
In it, she never explicitly addressed her ex Justin Bieber by name, but she did talk about how her heartbreak from that year on-off relationship served as inspiration for some of the album's tracks. She said she thinks their final split was exactly what she was meant to go through to help others. Discussing how change can be a good thing even if it comes with pain, she said, " Good example, I would say, is about eight, 10 years, it was really painful. She continued, "And I think when 'Lose You to Love Me' [Gomez's breakup song widely believed to be about Bieber] came out and the reaction it got, I definitely knew it was a special song.
