Bye, bye baby: Did Selena Gomez dump Justin Bieber?
Selena Gomez has reportedly dumped Justin Bieber. Could the baby scandal drama be to blame?
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's PDA-filled appearances and vacations are reportedly over. Gomez has dumped Bieber after only eight months together and speculation suggests it's due to the woman who recently came forward claiming that Bieber is the father of her baby.
"Selena ended it abruptly," a source tells Radar Online. "She broke the news to Justin just in the past 24 hours."
Could Mariah Yeater be to blame for the breakup? Yeater, 20, told Star magazine that Bieber is the father of her baby and wants a California court to make him "undergo a paternity test to scientifically confirm that he is in fact that father of my baby" as well as forcing him to "provide adequate support for my baby."
Bieber has denied those allegations and told Matt Lauer on the Today show that he "never met the woman."
"I'd just like to say basically that none of those allegations are true," Bieber said. "I know that I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim."
How is Bieber handling the break-up news?
"His camp is in damage control mode and attempting to convince her to stick around in the relationship for a few more weeks, because they fear it will be seen as an admission that something indeed took place between Justin and the woman who is alleging that he's the father of her baby," the insider said. "Justin has insisted to Selena that the woman's allegations are simply not true."
Besides her break-up with Bieber, Gomez has also been dealing with a scary stalker situation, however, the singer doesn't seem to be letting the drama get her down.
"Everyday I'm shuffling!" she tweeted today, with a picture of her standing near the LMFAO sign at the MTV EMA awards in Ireland.
