Justin BieberAnd Selena GomezThey had their fair share in life, with a lot of romance.
The “Baby” singer and the Only Murders are allowed in the Building Star were first to be linked in 2011, having previously claimed their platonic connection was only platonic. The red carpet was their first official appearance by the twosome at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in February. They continued to date for many years.
“I think a lot of my inspiration comes from [Selena],” Bieber told Ryan SeacrestDuring an April 2015 radio interview. “It was a long relationship that created heartbreak and created happiness and a lot of different emotions that I wanted to write about.”
During one of the pair’s splits in 2015, the Canada native was spotted making out with his now-wife, Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin).
“What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged,” Justin admitted to GQ in March 2016. “It’s really hard to fix wounds like that. It’s so hard. … I just don’t want to hurt her.”
Justin was closer to the model than he thought, but he reconciled with Disney Channel’s alumnus in November 2017, before finally splitting almost a year later.
“I was, you know, obviously going through a really tough breakup, and then I was left with the question of my career and where am I gonna go and what’s gonna happen?” Gomez told The Hollywood Reporter In a June 2022 interview, they discussed their public split. “And then my medical stuff kind of kicked in, but being on the other side of it, I have to be honest, it’s actually been really good for me.”
She added: “[Our breakup] allowed me to develop a character where I don’t tolerate any sort of nonsense or disrespect. It was necessary to go through these things. I had a lot to do soul searching. By all means, I don’t have life figured out, but I do know that during that time I was learning so much about myself.”
Hailey was married to Gomez in September 2018, less than a year after the Grammy winner and Gomez split. Despite the “Yummy” singer and the Guess model’s wedded bliss, Jelena fans still criticized Hailey for allegedly getting in between the now-exes.
“It’s hard for me to talk about this because I don’t want to talk on either one of their behalf because it was their relationship,” the Rhode founder said during a September 2022 appearance on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast. “I honestly respect that very deeply, but I just know what was going on when we got back together. And I know what had to happen for that to come back together in a healthy way, and I think it was the most healthy, mature decision that he could have made and I respect that.”
Gomez, on her part, has been linked to The Weeknd, Zedd, Niall HoranAnd Charlie PuthAfter her split from Justin.
