We are both shocked and not shocked about the bombshell: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are no longer the cutest couple on the planet, sources told E! News. They apparently broke up a week ago, but they took a page from political publicists and dumped this news on a Friday night. While on the one hand, we’re sad these two kids couldn’t work things out, on the other, can anyone be surprised that two such young kids weren’t ready to settle down forever? They’re at the peaks of their careers and looks. Besides that, E!’s source echoes the rumors we’ve been hearing about these two for months: “Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship,” this mysterious insider said.
The pair had been together, publicly at least, since February 2011 — that’s an eternity in young celebrity time. Especially given the pressures of Bieber’s fans, both the ones on Twitter and the crazies like Mariah Yeater, who claimed Biebs was her baby daddy last year. But mostly, they had a lot of too-cute-for-words moments in front of the cameras. In memoriam of their relationship, here are 20 photos of Justin and Selena.
