The Reason Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber Got Back Together Is So Cute, According To Reports


Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together, y'all. Well, at the very least, they're giving their relationship another shot following Gomez's breakup with The Weeknd. And while many fans think it's a bad idea for Gomez and Bieber to get back together given their tumultuous history, Gomez's reason for giving the Biebs another chance is actually pretty sweet. We can forgive this, OK, guys?! The reason Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber got back together is apparently because he was Gomez's "first love," and she's giving him a second chance for that romantic reason. A source close to Gomez told People,

As for Bieber's side of this, a source said he's matured and wants to have a more mature relationship with his ex. The source said,

"This" apparently means spending all of their time together riding bikes, going to breakfast and church, attending Bieber's hockey games, and wearing Bieber's jersey at said hockey games. You know, romantic couple stuff!

The source also told People that Bieber apparently needed time and space to realize Gomez deserved a lot more than he gave her in the past. According to the source, no one has ever compared to Gomez for Bieber. The source said,

In case you're confused about how Gomez and Bieber got back together in the first place, allow me to map out the timeline.

A couple of weeks ago, news broke that The Weeknd broke up with Selena Gomez over the phone, saying distance made their passion fizzle out.

A source told People,

During this time, Gomez was seen going to breakfast and church with Bieber.

Sources close to the former exes said they had been hanging out platonically ever since Gomez revealed she had a kidney transplant over the summer.

After the Gomez/Weeknd breakup, Gomez and Bieber were seen together much more often and reconciliation rumors were running rampant. Bieber and Gomez didn't really do anything to stop them.

Sources close to the pair told Us Weekly,

Another source said,

Now, it looks like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are officially back together. And while many fans think she should listen to Dua Lipa's "New Rules" on repeat (you know, the anthem to end all anthems telling women not to get back with their exes that also provides steps on how to avoid making the mistake), giving your first love another chance after they've seemingly proved they've matured isn't the worst thing in the world to do. No news on how Taylor Swift feels about this, though.
