Updated Nov. 16, 2017, 12:30 p.m. PT: We still don’t know for sure if this is what caused her breakup with The Weeknd, but Selena Gomez is fully, 100 percent back together with Justin Bieber. We know. We didn’t believe it ourselves until someone caught a pic of them kissing at a hockey game.

According to an insider, they think they can make it work this time despite, like, a decade of dating on and off.
“Justin is still very happy. They have had quiet date nights at home and outings to local, low-key sports,” the source told People magazine. “They are still catching up and just enjoying hanging out. They have learned from past mistakes and are not putting any pressure on each other. Things are much different and more mature.”
Only time will tell.
Updated Nov. 2, 2017, 10:15 a.m. PT: Fresh off her breakup with The Weeknd, Selena Gomez is spending more and more time hanging out with her ex, Justin Bieber. The amount of time they’ve been spending together is enough to raise any eyebrow, but now reports are really seriously considering Bieber might have had something to do with the former couple’s split.
One source told Us Weekly, “[The Weeknd] trusted Selena, but he really didn’t trust Justin.”
That same source also described Bieber as Gomez’s soul mate, adding, “He always had her heart and her attention.”
Meanwhile, following the months of “back and forth” about their relationship that ended in their breakup, The Weeknd seems to be settling into single life. TMZ spotted him at a club, dancing with an unidentified woman and clearly having a good time, as young, rich, single people are wont to do.
Eventually, maybe we’ll get some closure on this. Or maybe we won’t. Either way, we’ll probably make it through.
Ugh. One of our favorite pop culture couples, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd, has reportedly broken up. Happy Monday, everyone!

Sources tell People magazine that after 10 months together, Gomez and The Weeknd, given name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, couldn’t make their relationship work amid their busy schedules.
“She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship,” one insider shared. “It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”
Even with all that physical distance between them, Gomez was often seen attending The Weeknd’s shows, but there were many that she couldn’t make and “that played a part in them getting distant,” an insider explained. It also couldn’t have helped that Gomez has had a wild year, taking time off from her music career to have a kidney transplant to treat her lupis. We can see that being tough on any relationship.
The good news is they haven’t cut each other entirely out of their lives, so maybe there’s hope for reconciliation.
“It’s over for now, but they’re still in touch,” a source said. “It’s been hard for them to come to the realization that this is the direction things were heading, but it’s been hard for months.”
Despite what you may be thinking (and admit it — you were thinking it), Gomez is reportedly not back with her perpetually on-and-off boyfriend Justin Bieber, even though they were spotted together over the weekend going to church and then having breakfast together in a nearby café.
Here’s hoping this is the last celeb couple to call it quits this year. We’re taking a break from breakups until 2018, OK everyone?
