Selena Gomez dumped Justin Bieber last week because she has “trust issues”

It was in the air last week… everywhere you turned, it seemed like there was a rumor about Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber and how they had maybe broken up. I didn’t want to believe it! After all, there had been plenty of breakup rumors before. And Justin and Selena had always pulled through. But not anymore. On Thursday and Friday, there were several reports about Bieber flirting with all of the young models at the Victoria’s Secret show (where he performed), and he even went to see The Lion King with Hungarian VS model Barbara Palvin (she’s 19 years old). There were some tweet-recriminations and tweet-shade, and by Friday afternoon, sources had confirmed that Bieber and Selena broke up.

What’s funny/interesting is that it seems like – and this is just a theory! – that Selena Gomez went around to media outlets, making sure that she got HER side of the breakup story out first. People Magazine’s “source” said: “She broke up with him about a week ago. With them being apart so much it got complicated. She had some trust issues. It’s not easy, but the relationship needed to end.” Suspiciously enough, Us Weekly got a similar-sounding quote from a source: “Selena broke up with Justin about a week ago. It’s been a really challenging experience over the last year because of their crazy schedules. Selena definitely had some major trust issues with Justin.”

Both “sources” using the dreaded “trust issues” excuse… it could be that the source isn’t particularly Team Selena or Team Bieber, but I still think it’s coming from Selena. I think she’s putting out the “trust issues” thing specifically so we’ll think, “Oh, I bet she had a REASON to have trust issues, she probably found out he was bangin’ someone else.” Like, the aim is to make Selena look sympathetic, like she was the victim of Justin’s wandering wang and she had to break up with him because she doesn’t want to be mistreated. It’s not the worst strategy. But don’t ask me, I was always going to be Team Selena. I like that girl a lot. Always have! TEAM SELENA 4 EVA!!!

    Good for her :) . I just did the same :/

  2. Alexis says:

    True love*** died today. RIP. I can’t stop crying!!! My life is meaningless now!!!!

    ***Her contract expired and she didn’t want to renew it.

  3. Saphana says:

    better than getting caught in a minicooper. the bieber fans might be even more crazy than the twihards.

    i kind of liked them. they both look so young, it always looked like cute puppy love or little children playing mommy and daddy.

    • T.C. says:

      They look like two 12 year olds dating. What is Selena Gomez going to do now for publicity. She and Swifty are bestfriends and use their “boyfriends” to get attention.

      • Liv says:

        Yeah, and imagining both of them doing more than just kissing is somehow creepy…

      • Me Too says:

        I can’t wait until both of these child stars go away. How anyone over the age of 13 can be fans of either of these two (no offense Kaiser!) is, frankly, beyond me. Selena can’t act or sing her way out of a box. The only reason she’s around today is because of her “relationship” with Bieber. She was aging out of the Disney machine when they supposedly hooked up. I say supposedly because it disturbs me to think of these two going at it…the image that comes to mind is…yikes!

  4. Bluedog says:

    Eh, the Blind Gossip site had those two as a PR romance, which I can totally believe. Guess the time was up.

  5. Ms Kay says:

    Selena broke up with her girlfriend because of trust issues? Oh well…

  6. crtb says:

    I thought they were cute cute couple. Never understood the hate. Innocent puppy love.

  7. James Davis says:

    Selena broke up with Hillary Swank? Dude!

  8. melior says:

    Kids acting like adults. Sorry but this is just ridiculous!

  9. mia girl says:

    “Bieber in a Tux” is going to be my new euphanism for anyone who is gender-bending with their red carpet look.

  10. Andrew says:

    Good for her. I don’t blame her getting her side out first. I think that’s a smart move if she did.

  11. dorothy says:

    Yeah, she didn’t trust that he was really a man/ boy.

  12. Bowers says:

    I just don’t see the attraction of him, and of course I’m not 10 years old but still.

  13. GoodCapon says:

    The Bieleber(sp?) fans will REJOICE! Hurrah!

    Oh and this line “probably found out he was bangin’ someone else.” — I do NOT need that mental image, thanks.

  14. shixa says:

    Will she pull an Anne Heche and go back to dating guys now?

  15. Victoria says:

    Oh well, wasn’t this a long time coming? I seriously couldn’t picture this dynamic.. Michael K calls the Beliebers a terrorist group hahahahahaha

  16. Jayna says:

    She’s such a pretty girl. She can do better than that little wimp. Plus, he’s gone on tour a lot. Hard on a relationship. But he’s her first love and usually it’s hard to let go.

  17. j.eyre says:

    That’s weird, I just broke up with both People and Us Magazine because of trust issues.

  18. A says:

    They both have such baby faces…It’s so disturbing to think of Beiber hitting on VS models…He looks like a 13 year old hitting on a college girl. Who bets on a Beiber/Swifty union next?

  19. Zigggy says:

    I’ve always thought he’d go off the rails once she dumped him- now we’ll see…

  20. Meaghan says:

    So happy, I’ve always loved Selena! She is adorable. Good on her, he’s a loser!

  21. Talie says:

    It never fails to flummox me that people rarely bring up the fact that he must have some sort of development issues…I mean, is he even growing normal? I wonder if he even hit puberty.

    • littlestar says:

      I agree with you on that. I too find it weird that as an 18 year old he seems much younger, or hasn’t hit puberty at all. I’m not trying to be mean and I realize that people physically mature at different rates but why the hell doesn’t he have any body hair???!!! For an 18 yr old man/boy, he should have way more hair on his body than what he has now! I find it extremely odd. And his facial features are quite feminine. Maybe he has hormone problems?

      • marie says:

        wasn’t there a theory floating around once that he added a few years to his age? Of course I dunno if it’s true or not..

        I also heard something from The Doctors I think ( my mom watches it religiously) about how boys today have less testosterone then years past? Like I said-that’s a talk show so take it for what it’s worth..

      • Talie says:

        Yeah, the lack of facial/body hair is just really weird to me. I remember some kids in my high school being on the smaller side, but they all always had some kind of hair. I agree, i don’t say it to be mean, it’s just something I always notice and find it off that it’s never discussed.

      • littlestar says:

        Talie, I remember reading a rumour from a few months ago that Justin was likely taking steroids to beef up. Not sure how true it is or not. But I definitely agree that it’s weird that no one ever mentions how it seems as though puberty really hasn’t happened for him. We discuss women’s bodies to no end but Justin’s androgyny is off limits.

      • LittleDeadGirl says:

        No one discusses a legitimate reason for why he looks so young still but his body is discussed all the time. 90% of the comments above and below are calling him a girl (which is mean but I’m sorry so true … he doesn’t help his cause wearing lipbalm all the time). Still. I do agree with you … is his growth stunted, is he lying about his age, is it just normal and some guys mature physically a little slower? I have no clue.

      • Nina W says:

        He’s only 18, and he has a very youthful face. In the future he will continue to look younger than his years. There are thousands of young men who are built like him, and have similar amounts of hair. It’s sad people are so nasty about his appearance but he really doesn’t look that different from lots of other teenage boys.

      • LeslieM says:

        He looks like most of the boys in my son’s senior class. Many of them still don’t have a heavy beard. My son is tall and athletically built and has the same hair color. He shaves, but I don’t think he could grow a stiff beard. Same with his friends unless the have very dark hair. My husband didn’t have much hair on his chest in his 20′s but does now. He’s a very cute boy and has an amazing voice.

  22. Suga says:

    Good, now she can fade into oblivion. The only reason she is still relevant is due to that relationship. Now that they are over, I can’t see how she can hold people’s attention for so long.

  23. Riana says:

    Bah, team no one.

    Famous or not, teenagers breaking up is the lowest level of importance unless someone’s a crazed fan.

    Its ironic though, because he recently gave an interview to Oprah where he supposedly said such nice things about her. If the goal is to appear sympathetic Gomez is gonna have an uphill battle once that premieres. Sadly there’s still gonna be backlash from crazy teens who invest too much of themselves in other people.

  24. skuddles says:

    I predict Selena will now find herself some muscley man type. And the wee Biebs will go on to make a total ass of himself by chasing women who will laugh in his girlish little face (VS models anyone?).

  25. Frayed_Edges says:

    Well they can’t exactly stay together forever and get married… Justin’s 12, and Selena looks like a tall 10 year old. They had to break up sometime. Also it’s not good for Justin’s PR team if he’s in a serious relationship for too long… makes the young fans feel like they’ll never have a chance!

  26. Roxi says:

    Bieber looks like a lesbian, Selena is better off without her :) .

  27. Hope says:

    That stupid heart shirt looks like one of Goop’s sweaters. Just sayin’.

  28. oivey says:

    “But don’t ask me, I was always going to be Team Selena. I like that girl a lot. Always have! TEAM SELENA 4 EVA!!!”

    Me too, Kaiser.

    I used to watch Wizards of Waverly Place with my nieces. Selena is actually a rather talented actress, wouldn’t say she’s a brilliant singer but her comedic timing is pretty good.

  29. Kim says:

    I just heard his interview on it appears that she dumped. him

  30. Minty says:

    Team Digestion! Yay! No more vomit-inducing photo ops to showcase their ‘great romance’.

    Compared to some of their peers, both of them aren’t especially talented. When their fans grow up their relevancy and PR bullsh-t will greatly diminish, which is how it should be.

  31. JM says:

    Just wondering…Wouldn’t Justin have to go through puberty before his wang could wander? *shudders that I even typed this*

  32. Claire says:

    They never had much chemistry – I just couldn’t buy them as a couple. I am surprised he has lasted this long. As for Selena, I wasn’t that bothered by her but just saw ‘Monte Carlo’ with my daughter and it was kinda nice. Think she is harmless – not sure if she is leading lady status – Leighton Meister seemed to shine a bit brighter in Monte Carlo

  33. LittleDeadGirl says:

    The picture on the red carpet. I can’t even with him … why is he wearing lipstick?!

  34. dcypher1 says:

    They are so young in ten years selena will be all like justin beaver oh yeah I remember him I wonder what happened to him.

  35. s says:

    Always thought she was too good for him. I mean on a physical level — holy jebus — why would she even try with that boy?

  36. Kristin says:

    She’s hot. He looks like Ellen Degeneres 30 years ago.

    She dodged a bullet.

  37. gg says:

    I keep waiting for him to grow up and get some hormones already. He still looks just like a girl.

  38. Silly Girl says:

    They both are just so darn pretty! I hope she never looks back. Never say never, though…. ;)

  39. Silly Girl says:

    The more I think about, the more it makes sense for the PR people to (if he’s really straight) keep him straight AND available to the younger fans. Isn’t this what they did with Elvis, Shawn Cassidy, David Cassidy, etc? Girls are lead to believe the guys are single and have they have a chance with him! If there’s a question of his sexuality, the right PR move would be to give him a beard and THAT’s why he’s unavailable to the young girls! Makes SO much sense….I should have been in PR….

  40. G says:

    YOU GO GIRL! And you too Selena!! LOL!!

    Sorry I love her she’s adorable.

  41. Alana Fajina says:

    It really grossed me out to think of these two “doin it.” As far as I’m concerned, they’re toddlers. Good for them both I guess. I mean, did any of us think this was forever???

  42. Kosmos says:

    They’re super young, so of course, they are not going to stay together for life…he’s a music star and girls are everywhere, so it’s better for her that she aligns herself with someone else, now and for the future…it was nice while it lasted.
