One of the most popular celebrity couples, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, have reportedly called it quits, shocking their fans and confirming weeks of rumors.
The break up has been explained by their “crazy” work schedules, and is apparently nothing to do with photos emerging of Bieber with supermodels at the Victoria’s Secret fashion event in New York this past week.
A source revealed that Selena was the one who ended the couple’s romance, after Justin and Hungarian model Barbara Palvin were both spotted at The Lion King musical on Thursday – just 24 hours after they shared the stage at the Victoria’s Secret show.
The Canadian singer performed two songs at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show taping in Manhattan on Nov.7, and attended an after party with some of the models and members of his crew.
A source told reporters: “She broke up with him about a week ago. With them being apart so much it got complicated. She had some trust issues. It’s not easy, but the relationship needed to end.”
Although news of their split didn’t surface until Friday night, a few hours earlier the Disney star, 20, hinted there was trouble in paradise with a cryptic tweet as she posted a photo of Justin with Barbara in the background, writing “….”.
Meanwhile, the Victoria’s Secret model, who has also worked for Armani Exchange, H&M, Victoria’s Secret, and Pull and Bear, had posted a photo of herself in a dressing gown backstage with Justin on Thursday.
She wrote: “Okay sooo because u guys were askin for it! with @justinbieber ! you were great tonight!”
The night the two were spotted on Broadway, the former tweeted: “The Lion King” with a heart symbol.
As The Daily Mail reports, hours later, she was clearly referring to the pop-star, writing: “Hey everyone. please calm down. he is all yours!! :) please :)”
News of Justin and Selena’s split was first reported by E! Online: “Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship.”
So there is no actual proof that Justin Bieber and Barbara Palvin are anything more than friends.
Sources told that the twosome broke up about a week ago when Justin was on tour in Memphis and Selena partied with friends in Los Angeles.
Last month the ‘Baby’ hitmaker during his conversation with Oprah said the following: “Sometimes … we got to take the back exits and do different things, but I never make her separate from me ’cause I don’t want to her ever feel like I’m ashamed of her,” he told Oprah.
“I feel like a lot of guys do that, especially in the business. They don’t want to be seen with the girl, so they’ll make them ride in separate cars and do all that getaway stuff. When we’re getting away we’re getting away together.”
A rep for Bieber refused to comment on the situation. “So far, neither Bieber or Gomez have made any public comment on the split, and MTV News’ emails to their reps were not responded to by press time.”
