Apparently Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber Are Friends Now

Everyone stay calm—it looks like exes Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are hanging out again.

In photos obtained by TMZ, Justin is seen walking into Selena’s house in Studio City, Calif., on Sunday, Oct. 22. According to TMZ, the two are just friends and have hung out several times in the past few weeks. The two reportedly reconnected after Selena announced that she received a kidney transplant as a result of her lupus.

Selena and Justin dated on-and-off in a highly public relationship that began in 2011. Since their split in 2014, both have spoken candidly about their tumultuous relationship. In Nov. 2015, Justin told Access Hollywood that he would always have love for his ex-girlfriend. However, in Aug. 2016, the goodwill between the two blew up in a very public, very shady Instagram fight that led Justin to delete his Instagram for a short time.

Now, it seems the exes have moved on from their feud and are working toward becoming friends again. They reportedly spent time together over the weekend with mutual friends. Selena’s current boyfriend, The Weekend, was not present due to his tour schedule, but he supposedly knows about the friendship. Justin has recently been linked to multiple women, including Kourtney Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin and Sofia Richie, and he's now reportedly dating actress Paola Paulin.

While it seems like a full-fledged Jelena reunion is out of the picture, it’s great that the exes are able to bury their animosity and move forward as friends.
