Are Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber Friends? New Reports Say They’re Hanging Out


Hold onto your sanity, Jelena shippers, because your two favorite people might be friends again. According to reports, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been hanging out as friends over the last couple weeks. They've been hanging out with groups of mutual friends, TMZ reports, and The Weeknd is apparently totally cool with it/knows all about it. So are Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber friends for real this time? Did Bieber perform his song "Friends" for her and was like, "Selena, girl, can we be friends plz?" Maybe!

The exes were reportedly seen platonically hanging out at Gomez's house in Studio City with a group of friends this past Sunday, Oct. 22. TMZ released photos that reportedly show Gomez pulling into her house on Sunday night and Bieber's car following just 10 minutes after. There's also a photo of what appears to be Gomez and Bieber walking out of her house, but only the tattooed arm of a guy can be seen in the photo, so it's hard to confirm that it's actually the Biebs. Still, fans are completely losing their minds, seeing as if their beloved Jelena won't get back together in a romantic way, friendship is a good second.

Try not to faint, Jelena fans, but these are the reported photos of Gomez and Bieber hanging out this past weekend.

Some fans are like, "OMG YASSSSSS," while others are like, "Meh."

Gomez and Bieber reportedly got back in touch around the time she revealed she had a kidney transplant earlier this summer.

Gomez revealed the news in a moving Instagram post on Sept. 14 that read,

One of Gomez's best friends, actress Francia Raisa, was her kidney donor, and Gomez penned a beautiful thank you to her in her Instagram post. Raisa posted about the experience on her own Instagram shortly after Gomez. She said,

In August, Bieber released the single "Friends" with BloodPop. It's about wanting to be friends with an ex, and fans immediately thought "Friends" was about Selena Gomez.

The "Friends" lyrics go:

Do you wonder why I've been callin'? Like I've got ulterior motives

No, we didn't end this so good

But you know we had something so good

So I'm wonderin'

Can we still be friends? (oh) Can we still be friends? (oh)

Doesn't have to end

And if it ends, can we be friends?

Can we be friends? Can we be friends?

Sounds to me like someone is trying to platonically reconcile with an ex! But honestly, these two probably don't write all of their songs about each other... I'm just sayin'. Gomez has a new single coming out on Oct. 25. called "Wolves." She released the "Wolves" lyrics on Oct. 24 and they're super romantic. Fans are assuming it's about her current boyfriend, The Weeknd, and they're pumped. But, it's safe to say Jelena shippers are having a good day today.
