Could it be that a dubious, unsubstantiated Internet report might not actually be true? Shocking, we know. As your shaken worldview recovers, here's the skinny: Over the weekend, rumors began in earnest that Justin Bieber, 17, and Selena Gomez, 19, had ended their cuter-than-a-basketful-of-puppies romance.
The reason for the supposed split: The wholesome Disney darling allegedly caught the nonthreatening pop idol texting his onetime vehicular make-out partner, Jasmine Villegas. If that story sounds familiar, it's because the same rumor circulated back in March.
Neither party has officially commented, but on Friday, Justin made a point of posting a photo showing him wearing a T-shirt from Selena's current We Own the Night tour.
It was the same shirt he wore while attending her concert last Thursday in Boca Raton, where stampeding Beliebers foiled his plans for a stealthy exit.
Bieber also took to Twitter on Saturday to share a schmoopy sentiment that may or may not have been directed at Gomez: "What makes you so beautiful is that you dont know how beautiful you are... to me."
