Ready for the craziest rumor you'll hear all week? Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez reportedly think they can keep their high profile relationship very low key and we're just like, 'wait, how'? These two are the most sought-after couple at the moment. Everyone and their mother wants to know what they are up to, catch a glimpse of their most recent kissing photo and figure out where they will pop up next. But, Jelena actually thinks they can hide from the most devote shippers. According to a new report, these two are trying to be like a normal couple because when they put themselves out there in the spotlight years ago, things didn't exactly end up working out.
A source told Entertainment Tonight, "They’ve done the whole Hollywood couple thing before with parties, red carpets, events and everything else that comes with being in the spotlight and it didn’t work. This time around, they really just want to do normal things that regular couples do."
The insider added, "He’s playing on a rec hockey team and she watches in the stands with some of the other girlfriends and families of the players. They love working out together. They recently did a Pilates class together, and of course they go to church still. They’re even opting to hang out more with friends who are not in the industry, mainly friends from church. They’re really just all about keeping it low-key this time and don’t want it to spiral into a big spectacle."
Okay, so, I get it. This all really does make sense – if you weren't Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Like, how can they actually believe that people are going to stop talking about them if they decide to go to church one day instead of a red carpet event? Unfortunately, paparazzi will still be waiting for them no matter where they are together. It's just the nature of the world's curiosity and obsession with celebrity culture today. Yeah, it would be pretty freaking awesome if they could live the life they wanted and keep their relationship private, but I just don't see it happening unless we as people collectively agree to leave them alone. Not to mention, all shippers are super interested in the whole Mandy Teefey situation right now.
It was reported a few weeks ago that Selena's mom was hospitalized and super upset over how serious Sel's relationship has gotten with Justin. Things went back and forth, obviously. The pair stopped following each other on social media, reports came out that there were other reasons as to why she was hospitalized yet the Biebs still didn't make an appearance at her family's Christmas festivities which was definitely telling. A source told Entertainment Tonight, "Selena is an adult and she’s going to make decisions for herself. She values her mother’s opinion, but not over her own. Selena's mother's opinion of Bieber is based on how she remembers him from the past. A lot has happened since then, and Selena knows he's changed and is in a better place, and so is she."
The source added, "Selena's mom hasn't spent time with Bieber recently, so she really hasn't seen anything firsthand. It's all based on her previous perception — which to be fair, wasn't good. So it's only natural she'd be weary." Very solid points here. Hate to break it to you Jelena, but as long as Mandy keeps our interest peaked in whether or not she approves of this new found relationship, our curiosity doesn't seem to be dwindling.
