Rumors are swirling that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez may be reconciling once again, but the question of why they broke up in the first place has never been answered — until now.
Life & Style would like you to believe that Gomez, 20, called off her two year relationship with the 18-year-old pop star after she found out Bieber had cheated on her with Rihanna during the early stages of their relationship.
We’ll let you pause for a moment to catch your breath from laughing so hard, but a friend of Gomez’s told the magazine that news of the alleged affair has “devastated her.”
“It really cut like a knife because it happened in February of 2011, when Selena and Justin had been dating for months and were falling in love. It’s caused Selena to question their entire relationship,” the source told Life & Style.
According to the friend, Bieber and Rihanna hooked up after an evening of flirting at the NBA All-Stars game in February 2011. While it’s true that Bieber and Rihanna were spotted sitting next to each other, allegations that the two hooked up seem more than dubious. Given the timeline, Bieber would have been a week shy of his 17th birthday, while Rihanna would have been 22. Plus, (for whatever reason) Bieber is good friends with Chris Brown, and we doubt their friendship would have survived if the Biebs hooked up with Brown’s ex-girlfriend.
