E! News reports that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have broken up, which makes all those Justin Bieber/Victoria’s Secret model rumors all the more credible.
E!’s source says, "Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship.” Rumors have been increasing steadily over the last couple of weeks, reaching their pitch when Bieber was reportedly spotted with Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin at a Lion King show on Broadway.
Some people are saying that one of the factors that could have contributed to the break-up could be the way that Bieber’s fans treat Gomez. She previously told Z100 Radio, "I don't feel like I'm doing anything wrong. I've been best friends with him for a very long time. It does hurt my feelings a lot, but I try not to focus on it."
However, it’s more likely that the distance got to be too much – both Bieber and Gomez are extremely busy young stars and despite what they’ve repeatedly said, it must have taken a strain on their relationship when they couldn’t see each other for weeks at a time. Normal people have a hard enough time with long-term relationships, but it would be doubly hard being world-famous superstars.
