After Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber broke up the first time, both said the pressure of the media and Beliebers had been a lot for them. Now that they may or may not be back together, it looks like the lack of privacy is catching back up with them.
Gomez appeared at the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday night, March 29, with a brand-new accessory: a gold ring. The singer was called to the stage after winning the award for Favorite Female Singer, and the internet collectively seemed to start talking all at once about the gold ring on her left ring finger. According to the Huffington Post, the ring was actually first spotted when Gomez appeared at the We Day California Event on March 27.
Since breaking up years ago, Bieber and Gomez seem to have a connection with each other that won’t allow them to let go of the relationship. In recent months, they have been spending more and more time together. Just after the new year, Gomez was out with Bieber in his neighborhood (coincidentally, only a few days later she checked into rehab). Since then, they have been seen out together more and more.
Rob Shuter, cohost of The Gossip Table, claims a source told him that the ring was a present from Bieber.
“Everyone around her is terrified he might propose and they’ll elope,” the source reportedly said, according to the Huffington Post. “They feel like the world is against their relationship, like a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. Who knows what they’ll do, we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Whether or not they are engaged, or the ring was just a symbol of their relationship, Gomez will be seeing Bieber soon no matter what. She was served with papers last week to testify in a lawsuit against the Biebs. A photographer is claiming Bieber assaulted him while he tried to photograph Bieber and Gomez in California.
