Selena Gomez Reveals Why She’s Hanging Out With Justin Bieber Again & How Her Relationship With The Weeknd Ended

Selena Gomez just became Billboard‘s Woman of the Year, and with that came a fantastic photo shoot and interview. Of course she was asked about Justin Bieber and her recent split from The Weeknd.

The question was straightforward: “What brought Justin back into your life?” Keep in mind this question followed one about “the best part about being single.”

“I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away. And [that goes for] people in general,” she told the magazine. Not too vague, but it does hint that Justin and Selena could be trying to repair what happened when they were teenagers.

Rumors of a Jelena reunion started when they were spotted together right before her breakup with The Weeknd. Justin and Selena have been riding bikes together, hanging out with friends, getting dinner, and even going to church. However, they were only friends at the time and weren’t seen kissing until Selena and The Weeknd officially split.

According to the pop star, she and The Weeknd are still best friends. “Something that I’m really proud of is that there’s such a true friendship [between me and The Weeknd]. I truly have never experienced anything like that in my life. We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me,” Selena said. 

I’m wondering what The Weeknd would say about that, since he just deleted all pictures of Selena from his Instagram. Selena, however, still has all of her pictures of him up.

While we’re not really getting any clear answers about Selena’s relationship status here, it’s comforting to know that Sel and Justin are hanging out because they truly care about each other.
