Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber might have been spending some more time apart recently, despite spending that a romantic weekend away together in Seattle, but that’s a thing of the past. The newly reunited couple wasn’t together for Christmas, seeing as the “Bad Liar” singer was out and about riding solo in her hometown of Texas and enjoying time with her extended family, but now, it appears like the recently reunited couple rang in 2018 together after all. And now we’re left wondering if they shared a New Year’s kiss. Asking the important questions over here.
So let’s break it down: after getting some much-needed family time in her schedule, the “Fetish” singer has once again jetted off to a new location. Selena headed to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for her annual BFF New Year’s trip. Her longtime bestie Raquelle Stevens took to Instagram to share a cute pic of the girls posing on the beach together along with Courtney Barry and Ashley Cook, who Selena fans know are key figures in her circle of most beloved friends. “Our 6th New Years together! Grateful for so many amazing memories. ☀️?,” Raquelle wrote in the caption.
Now while it seems like Selena was on this trip with just her friends, Justin was later spotted in Cabo as well, which means they were in the same place to celebrate the start of the new year. A source confirmed to People the twosome was happily spending time together saying, “Justin and Selena are doing great. They celebrated New Year’s Eve together in Cabo.” PRECIOUS. But while we didn’t get treated to any new pics of the pair you know, actually spending time together, we know they were in the same tropical, beautiful place, so they were just trying to keep things as low-key as they can. Justin did post on his Instagram Story some artwork he was working on and from the looks of the background, he is somewhere warm and sunny.

And can we talk about how he’s drawing the word “Grace,” and Gracie happens to be the name Selena’s beloved little sister?! A coincidence most likely but still, adorable. When Selena first headed out on this vacation, it seemed like it was just going to be her and her friends, going back to when one of her squad members Caroline Franklin had shared a picture on Instagram of a large group hanging out on a private plane. And peeking over in the corner of the picture is none other than the songstress herself.

A source had spoken to E Online about the singer’s vacation plans and revealed there seemed to be nothing but good times on her agenda.
“She seemed very excited when she landed and was giggling with her friends and taking photos. They are all planning to do some fun dinners and spend New Year’s Eve together,” the source said. A fan vacationing in the same location had tweeted out about spotting Selena with a group that didn’t involve Justin at the time, which is why we were all unclear as to whether they would be spending the holiday together or not.

So who’s this mystery guy Sel is spending time with? It may just be her rumored ex, Samuel Krost! Turns out he’s part of the group who has taken Mexico by storm, and fans have been able to figure that out thanks to pictures shared by her friends Courtney and Theresa Marie Mingus on Instagram. The singer’s bestie and assistant, Theresa was the one to tag him in her post which reads, “Eye on the fidget spinner.”
But as it turns out, the “Sorry” crooner made his way out to his girl after all. Selena though, has a serious history with vacationing in Mexico. In 2015, Selena went to Mexico on vacation with all her friends, including songwriter Justin Tranter. And then, back in 2013, she even traveled to Mexico with Justin Bieber and friends. So looks like they’re just keeping the tradition alive. Jelena, 2018 is ready for you.
