They put on a united front as the tabloid reports swirled, though, and went to the American Music Awards together in 2011.Then, in March 2012, Justin explained why they were still together despite all the rumours of his alleged infidelity."It's just about being honest with one another. I'm experiencing life."Well actually, Bieber started going off the rails a bit after splitting with Selena for the first time."I was 21 this year - I turned 22 - I was trying to figure out what I'm doing.You just have to be honest, that's the first thing, because if you're not honest then the relationship is just not a good relationship," he said. There was the reckless driving and the vandalism case in Brazil. According to reports at the time, Selena was understandably concerned about JB's behaviour and so decided to give their relationship another chance. When Selena bumped into Justin backstage at the Billboard Awards in 2013, Swift didn't exactly hide her distaste at the brief exchange between them. I'm doing my own thing, being with my friends, and he's doing very well too."Understandably yes."At the end of the day your girl would appreciate you being honest more than lying to her and vice versa."Yep, you've remembered correctly. It was made more awkward by the fact that JB had just put out 'Beauty And A Beat' where Nicki Minaj references his relationship with Selena. He apparently went on a number of dates with Victoria's Secret models, while Selena admitted she fancied Zayn Malik. This was seemingly confirmed with an Instagram post of them both together in May 2013. And then it seemed like Jelena actually hadn't reunited. Just a few months later he posted one of his many "throwback" photos of himself with Selena, calling her a "heartbreaker".Amongst all the speculation (and confusing Instagram pictures), Selena denied they were actually back together. And as we all went into 2014, we were still none the wiser as to if Jelena was actually back on.JB didn't shy away from praising her on Instagram, posting pictures of her with captions like: "Most elegant princess in the world" and "our love is unconditional".
But at the same time, there was so much speculation about him dating other women like Kendall Jenner, Yovanna Ventura, Chantel Jeffries and Adriana Lima. It all came to a head for the young star during a performance of 'The Heart Wants What It Wants' at the American Music Awards in 2014.The song - obviously about her on-off relationship with Bieber - caused her to tear up on stage in front of millions of television viewers."I think the biggest problem I've had this year - even with him and his side - was identity," Selena said in an emotional radio interview.Just what is going on with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez now?Their relationship has had more extreme ups and downs, twists and turns than the world's largest roller coaster.Looking at the pictures, you could easily see the look of love in both their eyes and smiles. Speaking to your friend and ours, Ellen De Generes, the former Disney star had to backtrack on very awkward comments she'd made previously ("he's like a little brother") and accept that everyone and their mother knew she'd been getting off with Bieber. "But I like to mess around and pull jokes on people so I like to be around people who make me laugh and share my sense of humour. She was that fan who accused Bieber of fathering her child.
She is a really great person and I think she has the best smile in the world."Before we knew it, they were kissing in public at the Kids Choice Awards in 2011, before jetting off on their first couples holiday to Mexico in August that year. She later dropped the lawsuit against him, but it certainly put a strain on his relationship with Selena towards the end of 2011.
