So, the saga continues. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are fully back together, head over heels for each other. JELENA. FOR. EVER. Sorry for screaming but this is major: they were spotted kissing. They were spotted hugging. We were spotted tearing up over it. After arriving back in Los Angeles from the Thanksgiving holiday, Selena and Justin have reunited at no other place than Hillsong Church, obviously. E! News reported, "Selena and Justin arrived separately for Wednesday night church services at Churchome. Selena was in a great mood, chatting with friends and happy to see them. Justin arrived a few minutes before Selena and was waiting for her there. They mingled before sitting down for the service."
But, their date night didn't end there. Selena and Justin reportedly left separately but both went to the Montage hotel in Beverly Hills where they sat alone together. The source continued, "They sat across from each other and listened to a jazz singer. It seemed like a serious conversation, but Selena broke into a smile a few times. At the end of their conversation, Justin came over and put his hand on Selena's shoulder and gave her a little massage. She gave him a long, very tight hug. She seemed so happy and comfortable with him. She didn't want to let him go and then they kissed quickly and said goodbye. Selena was smiling and very happy with what Justin had said." OH BABY! Their PDA is heating up and we're living for it. But, this isn't the first time they done it.
TMZ snapped pictures of Selena and Justin sharing a smooch during his hockey game and IT WAS EVERYTHING. Oh and did we mention her dog Charlie she adopted with The Weeknd was there too? So yeah, looks like Sel the one who kept the pooch and now he's spending time with the Biebs. But I digress.
After the kissing photos went viral, fans wondered if the pair was going to spend Thanksgiving together. Things were moving fast and since there is so much history between them, it wouldn't be that shocking. However, they actually spent the holiday in different countries. It's being reported that Selena's family is still getting used to the idea of Justin back in her life. A source told E! News, "They both spent Thanksgiving with their families. Justin went to Canada and Selena was in Texas. They are still doing really well together, but they agreed it was best for them to be with their families for the holiday."
The source continued, "Selena felt it was too soon for Justin to come to Texas with her. Her family is still getting comfortable with the idea of them back together." Even though they were hundreds of miles apart, they apparently still kept in contact and even FaceTimed with each other. "Justin says he hopes he can spend Christmas with her but knows that it will take a very long time for her family to accept him back in."
Aside from the holiday family drama, E! is also reporting that Justin nor Selena want to date anyone else at the moment. Their source said, "They don't want to date anyone else. They both are very committed to making this work. Justin and Selena have grown up since the last time they were together. He's trying to change and be a better guy. We'll see what happens. Justin is changing but it's a process. He's trying."
People magazine has the goss from an inside source about what Jelena likes to do behind closed doors and out of the public eye. "They have had quiet date nights at home and outings to local, low-key sports. They are still catching up and just enjoying hanging out. They have learned from past mistakes and are not putting any pressure on each other. Things are much different and more mature." The heart wants what it wants. While the whole thing might be very innocent right now, if they keep up this pace, it's going to be a full-fledged red carpet Hollywood power couple relationship real quick. And we can't wait.
TMZ reported that JB was actually the one that pursued Sel and it took some work to convince her that this was a good idea. Selena was ready to give the Biebs another chance because he was her first love and, to be honest, that's V relatable. A source told People magazine, "Justin was Selena’s first love. He will always have a special place in her heart. She’s always held out hope that one day the circumstances and timing would be right." BRB CRYING.
The source continued, "There have been times in the past where Selena was excited and thought things would work out again, but then was disappointed [by how things turned out]. They’re having a great time together. Neither are seeing anyone else and they seem happy to leave it at this for now. Spending time together makes them both very happy. For Justin, no one ever came close to comparing to Selena. He always thoughts she was the most special and now seems mature enough to realize Selena deserves the best."
While Selena may be falling back in love with the international pop star and her family is getting used to the idea, her friends definitely are not. A source told Us Weekly that before Justin started rekindling the friendship, Selena was, "in such a good place and so happy without Justin. Her friends want her to be cautious."
This doesn't come as a shock to anyone. Lots of Selena's friends haven't been huge supporters of the "Sorry" singer. Even Francia Raisa, Selena's best friend and kidney donor, "has not been a fan of Bieber after all that Selena and he went through." There have been rumblings in past years that Taylor Swift didn't approve either, believing that Selena, "could do much better."
It was reported that after Justin got wind of her kidney surgery, it "refocused" him and he realized how much she actually meant to him. Yes, Justin does have a soft side after all. The source said, "Selena had to be won over." And it looks like she finally has been – and no one is surprised because we have a feeling Justin can be charming AF when he wants to be.
The pair has been seen at Hillsong Church on the weekends and dining at Morton's Steakhouse in downtown Los Angeles. It was reported that Justin arranged a dinner at 10 p.m. after the restaurant had closed to the public so the pair could be completely alone. A source told People magazine, "Justin is doing great. Spending all week with Selena is the dream week for him. He is trying to take things slowly, but it hasn’t really worked. He is too excited to spend time with her...He is waiting for Selena to tell him that they are officially back together. He doesn’t feel any rush because no doubt they are already emotionally back together. Justin still needs to win her family over and he realizes it will take some time. But he very much feels he is a different person."
So basically, the ball was in Selena's court and we're all waiting for her to make some public decisions here. Will she or won't she fully let her guard down with him again? The insider added, "He knows what he did wrong in the past and understands that Selena deserves better. He wants to be with her and will do anything to prove he can be a great boyfriend."
So, what does this all mean? Jelena is testing the waters. A source told People magazine, "They’re not officially boyfriend and girlfriend. There’s a long history there obviously with them and they are figuring things out as they spend time together. No one would be surprised if they gave it a real go, but it’s too soon to say how things will unfold now.
Everything started when the pair was caught having breakfast and hanging out together just days after her split from The Weeknd. Fans will recall that not too long ago the “Company” singer was spotted leaving the “Wolves” songstress’ house after the two spent a couple of hours hanging out with a group of friends.
Fans went wild the first time Selena was spotted arriving at an ice rink in Los Angles to watch Justin play hockey. To make things even crazier, the pair left the rink together and Selena was wearing Justin's hockey team's jersey. Yes, the same one he was just wearing during the game. Our fingers were crossed that he has two sets of jerseys considering that's pretty foul if Selena decided to wear the sweaty one. BUT, WE DIGRESS. There were pics to prove it and we can't handle ourselves. Oh yeah, and they also apparently drove back to Selena's Studio City home together. There's no word about whether Justin just dropped her off or he went inside and spent the night.
TMZ photographed Sel and Justin grabbing breakfast out in a café in Westlake Village, California together. The Biebs wore a hoodie over his head, while the Wizards of Waverly Place star kept things casual in a dress.
Not only did the two grab food together, but it was also being reported that they went to church together that day as well. Literally, in real daylight Jelena was walking side by side again. Like, what year is it?! Things went even further for the pair when Justin's car was photographed pulling up to Selena's house on Sunday evening.
A family member of Selena's told TMZ, "Justin is a vile human and will never be accepted by us. As long as she is even speaking to him in any way, it is not only disrespectful to everyone around her, it is disrespectful to herself." Yikes.
As if that wasn't juicy enough, Justin was photographed leaving Selena's house early that Monday morning. STOP. IT. His car is unmistakable and it pulled out of Selena's driveway only for Jelena fans to nearly lose their minds. Did they have a sleepover? Why would he have been there so early? Why would Selena have allowed him to stay the night? Did they stay up all night talking? Literally, the questions were endless. While it's hard to tell what's really going on, it's true that Justin left her house wearing the same hoodie he wore the day before. The Daily Mail released the exclusive photos.
This all came on the heels of the news that Selena and The Weeknd had officially called it quits after dating for 10 months. Sources were saying that the split was not caused by her newfound friendship with Justin. The pair had actually been contemplating a break up for months now since it's been getting harder and harder to see each other.
We kind of totally love that Bieber still has a thing for the songstress. To be honest, we kind of don't think he ever got over her. An insider told People magazine, “Justin is aware Selena’s family is not thrilled they are hanging out. They think he caused Selena a lot of grief. Justin hopes he can prove to them that he has changed. He has changed a lot in the past few months. He is a very different person. They have a lot to talk about and are having fun catching up." I don't care what anyone says, I ship these two through and through. #JELENA
