It’s baffling to think that Justin Bieber was just 16-years-old when he first started dating Selena Gomez. And now, after years of on-again-off-again drama, it looks like the superstars might be cozying up yet again!
Since their initial breakup back in late 2012, Bieber’s career hit some major bumps in the road. He spazzed out on a photographer while on a tour stop in London last year, got fined for spray painting a building, was arrested in Miami for a DUI, and caught on multiple leaked videos using the racial slurs as a joke. Even with his bad boy image, photos of the two together continued to surface. If you ask us, Selena seems to be the calm to his storm.
Despite being in the headlines for everything but his music, Justin seems ready to make a clean slate with Selena by his side. Although the pair have not explicitly stated they’re back together, the subtext in their social media presence definitely makes it seem that way.
Here’s a timeline of Justin and Selena’s love and affection over the years! Maybe she can pull him out of his slump…
December 2010Rumors of the two dating started to surface when they were spotted together on a cuddly breakfast date at IHOP. Selena denied rumors of any romance at the time, citing they were just friends.
January 2011Things got a little hot and heavy as photos surfaced of the couple looking very cozy on vacation in the Caribbean.
February 2011Justin treated Selena to an entire flower shop, with the local florist having to fill multiple trucks that were delivered to her house. They also made their first official public appearance together on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscars party. They shared a kiss on the lips at the after party.
March 2011Selena appeared on Ellen, where the talk show host called out the singer about her relationship status with Bieber before gifting her with a pillowcase baring Justin’s face.
May 2011The two publicly locked lips at the Billboard Music Awards, one of many highlights that night. They were also spotted in Hawaii showing major PDA.
