It’s a sad day for Jelena fans — E! News is reporting that the super couple of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have gone their separate ways. After a number of cryptic tweets and overall suspicious social media practices from both parties over the last few days, a source told E! the broke up, due to “their crazy schedules,” adding “it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship.”
Selena, 20, and Justin, 18, sparked dating rumors back in December 2010 when they began spending an increasing amount of time together, beginning with a stroll in Miami. There were also photos of the two getting cozy on a balcony in the Bahamas over New Years that surfaced which all but confirmed the speculation.
However, the two didn’t dodge the relationship rumors for long, as they made their official debut as a couple at Vanity Fair’s Oscar party in February 2011. Selena stunned in a red gown, while Justin matched his accessories with his newly-minted girlfriend.
From events to running errands and everything in between, the two made a number of appearances together and seemed to be inseparable. Then in May 2011, the couple took their love over to Hawaii and showed off plenty of PDA. Another big milestone in their relationship was when Justin rented out L.A.’s Staples Center so they could have a romantic evening which included dinner and watch Titanic.
While there were many good times in their relationship, it had its fair share of drama as well. Selena even stood by her man when Mariah Yeater claimed that Justin was the father of her baby back in November 2011. However, Justin ended up taking a paternity test and the results showed the baby wasn’t his.
He even opened up about it his song, “Maria,” on his latest album Believe which has lyrics such as: ”She’s crazy, crazy in love / And she’s all over the news, saying everything but the truth / She’s faking, faking it all.” ”Why are you trying, trying to lie girl / When ain’t I never met you at all.”
2012 has been an especially busy year for the two, as Justin released his album Believe and embarked on a world wide tour, while Selena finished (and returned to) Wizards of Waverly Place in addition to filming the gritty drama Spring Breakers and Getaway.
