Top cool pics of Selena Gomez with Justin Bieber

Do they have a relationship? It’s a question that’s been plaguing humanity since the beginning of gossip magazines, and it doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. From Marilyn Monroe to John F. Kennedy to Brad Pitt, the list goes on and on. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have followed in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie.

Their on-again, off-again love is one for the books, so we’ve compiled a timeline of the long-running relationship, filled with dramas, feuds, and everything in between.

The first date was in December 2010.
Gomez, 18, and Bieber, 16, were spotted cuddling for the first time at an IHOP (that’s a fast food pancake business for those who don’t know). They later denied there was anything romantic going on, with Gomez offering one of the finest denial claims we’ve seen, telling Us Weekly Bieber was merely “one of my best pals… “It was simply pancakes!” exclaims the narrator.

January 2011 marks the start of a new year and a new relationship.
The couple were seen kissing on New Year’s Eve in St. Lucia, in the Caribbean, almost confirming there’s definitely something amorous going on.

It’s official, it’s February 2011.
The couple makes their red carpet debut at Vanity Fair’s Oscars Party, which led to the coining of the term “Jelena” and ensuing fan outrage.

They broke up in November of 2012.
The couple has split for the first time after two years of dating (which included helicopter flights, pregnancy rumours, and Bieber renting an entire stadium so the two could watch a movie together). Trust concerns and the couple’s young age were among the reasons for their breakup.

Come and Get It in April 2013
Come & Get It is Gomez’s first single, and fans are convinced the lyrics are about Bieber. Bieber then publishes and then deletes an Instagram photo of Gomez a few days later, setting the tone for the rest of the young singer’s tumultuous relationship with the social media platform.

 

They aren’t talking at all on December 13th.
Bieber confirms he and Gomez aren’t talking only days before Christmas. Bieber also stated in the same interview that he still loves Gomez.

Things start to go downhill in January 2014.
2014 was a trying year for Jelena fans. Bieber was arrested for drunk driving and vandalism, and he was also dealing with the loss of custody of his pet monkey, as well as media backlash over his new bad boy image. Gomez checked into treatment for Lupus, which everyone assumed was for drugs and Bieber, and the two are certainly not dating.

Justin Bieber vs. Orlando Bloom, July 2014: Justin Bieber runs into Orlando Bloom in Ibiza, Spain, where the two allegedly got into a fist brawl. The cause of the brawl is unknown; conjecture is rife as to whether Miranda Kerr or Selena Gomez were involved, but either way, it creates headlines and further cements Bieber’s reputation.

Hello, Hailey, in November of 2014.
Justin Bieber is linked to Hailey Baldwin after unfollowing Selena Gomez on Instagram earlier this year after dating a plethora of models.

Things start to get a little tricky in 2015.
When it comes to tracking the couple’s interactions, 2015 has been dubbed “the lost Jelena years.” Before things got serious again towards the end of the year, each had a slew of other relationships (including Gomez dating Zedd).

The serenade, November 2015
After a video of Bieber serenading Gomez in a hotel room surfaced, rumours resurfaced. Do they have a relationship? We looked into the case at the time and concluded that the relationship was tumultuous at best, but that the two are still in touch. Read all about Jelena’s November 2015 here.

more in January 2016 Hailey Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have begun dating, indicating that Jelena is currently single. It doesn’t take long for things to go strange, though (read: ugly).

August 2016: The Battle of Instagram
Things have come to a head. Bieber’s followers protest as he shares a series of Instagrams with his current girlfriend Sofia Richie, and he threatens to cancel his account.“If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol—it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.”

The result is a total war.

In a series of angry comments, the two accuse each other of cheating until Gomez apologises on Snapchat. Bieber then deletes his Instagram account entirely

Is October 2017 the start of something new?
Selena Gomez is photographed eating breakfast with Justin Bieber only days before news of her break-up with The Weeknd breaks. Bieber and Gomez were spotted together again shortly after the break-up was reported, even attending church. Bieber “texts her incessantly and spends out with her whenever he can,” a source told Us Weekly.

It’s on in November 2017!

November 2: The couple is seen riding bikes together in Los Angeles, seeming very at ease with each other and reigniting rumours that they are back together. At the very least, the two have a friendly relationship.

November 3: A source tells Us Weekly that the two are dating, claiming, “Selena has always had feelings for Justin.” Her friends advise her to be cautious because she has been doing so well since her operation.”

The couple is “obviously dating,” according to TMZ, who also confirmed the romance was back. So there you have it: Jelena has returned.

November 17: The duo is seen kissing, indicating that they are dating. Gomez was spotted leaning over the rail at an ice hockey game with Bieber, kissing him on the lips in front of hundreds of people. If we’ve ever seen it, this is confirmation.

 

It’s off, again, in March 2018.
Despite the fact that Gomez only recently turned to Instagram to wish Bieber a happy birthday, reports have surfaced that the two have broken up after being seen exiting a Hillsong church service separately. “They weren’t getting along and decided to take a vacation,” a source said, adding that the couple is “pressing pause” in order to “work on their spirituality.” It doesn’t appear to be a significant concern, and they should be OK soon.”
