Why Did Justin and Selena Break Up

During the zenith of their respective careers, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were one of the most renowned A-list couples. As a result, many fans have wondered, “Why Did Justin and Selena Break Up?”

The ‘Baby’ singer and the former Disney actress dated for eight years but ended their romance several times.

Although they are no longer in each other’s lives, the couple has happily moved on, with Justin marrying Hailey Baldwin in 2018 and thriving in his music career, which includes new singles, tours, and his clothing line, Drew House.

Meanwhile, Selena, who briefly dated The Weeknd after their divorce, has gone on to do incredible things in her career, including new music, new movie and TV appearances, a beauty line, producing a series in which she also stars, and, of course, her new Apple TV+ documentary, My Mind & Me.

But when did Selena and Justin start dating and when did they become engaged? When did they break up, and what was the cause of their breakup?

Here’s the whole rundown of Jelena’s life.

Why Did Justin and Selena Break Up?

Selena and Justin were first seen out and about holding hands in 2010 before confirming their romance in 2011.

At one point, the young stars were inseparable, attending a variety of red carpet events together and constantly commenting online with each other.

The ‘Rare Beauty’ mogul was 18 when she started dating Justin, who was 16.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber first met in the early 2000s, when Selena was 18 and Justin was 16. 

Their relationship, like many celebrity couples, began as a friendship, with Selena opening up about their early days in 2010, telling MTV: “I love Justin. When he first started coming over from Canada, his manager called me and he simply stated that he would like to meet me and that he was a great kid. 

And I’m starting to feel like a big sister because I want to protect him. So I’m always wary of him, but he’s so skilled and lovely that it only piqued our interest in working together. He’s only recently become one of my good friends.”

When Did Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber Split?

Back in 2012, Justin and Selena’s relationship was rocked by rumors that the former had cheated on his girlfriend, resulting in their first break-up.

They reconciled in 2015 and went on to date for a few difficult years, with both artists creating music about one another and their volatile affair.

Although the reason for their breakup was never made public, various stories and insiders at the time indicated that the relationship had been ‘unhealthy’ for some time.

According to other sources, ‘no one really supported their relationship’ after their several break-ups.

Were Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Engaged? 

Fans have lately revived Justin and Selena’s romance, with many only now discovering that while they were dating, Justin gave Selena a ring – but it wasn’t an engagement ring.

Despite some fan rumors claiming Justin proposed to Selena prior to his engagement to Hailey, this has never been confirmed by any party, thus we may presume that these are merely fan theories.

Justin gave Selena a promise ring in 2012, which was a silver band with a diamond-encrusted ‘J’ on it, and she wore it while they were together.

A closer look at the ring is provided here.

Final Thoughts

The speculations of a fight began on social media after Hailey uploaded an Instagram story of herself and Kylie Jenner comparing eyebrows, which many mistook for a dig at her husband’s ex.

These fan suspicions were heightened by Selena’s absence from the Oscars, with Hailey losing millions of Instagram followers and facing a barrage of online vitriol.

Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber both spoke out about this last week, dispelling rumors of a dispute between them and sharing messages on Instagram.
