Justin Bieber is going to propose to Selena Gomez over Christmas, according to a suspicious report. Gossip Cop looked into the story and we can now reveal what we've uncovered.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Bieber and Gomez recently rekindled their romance. While there's conflicting claims on just how serious the renewed relationship is, a so-called "source" supposedly tells RadarOnline, "Friends expect Justin to pop the question over the holidays. Justin has been looking at rings and plans to ask her to marry him over Christmas."

Unsurprisingly, there's a telling lack of details. For instance, just where is Bieber looking at rings? What kind of style is he eyeing? How does he plan to propose? And how will this take place over the holidays when it's already been confirmed Gomez will be with her family, not Bieber, on Christmas?

The webloid is making a bold allegation, but has nothing substantial to back it up. In fact, it only points to something tangentially related. After TMZ reported early Tuesday that Gomez's mom was taken to the hospital after mother and daughter allegedly had a fight about the relationship, RadarOnline is now claiming that incident is "adding to the marriage rumors. "Could it be she already spilled the news of their engagement?" asks the site.

But if the outlet has a real "source," as claimed above, why is it asking open-ended questions versus going to its contact to find out the answer? The speculation also doesn't make much sense. If Bieber is secretly planning to propose later this month, why would Gomez's mom already know about it and be arguing with her daughter about it before it occurs? Shamefully, it seems the blog just wanted to exploit the reported hospitalization by connecting it to a possible engagement.

The online publication has a history of running distasteful and unsupported claims, such as a story earlier this year accusing Gomez of trying to trap The Weeknd by getting pregnant and one last year alleging Bieber was friends with a convicted sex offender. With that reputation in mind, why would any legitimate "source" close to either star tell RadarOnline anything? Perhaps because this story is inauthentic is why there's a lack of key details.

Meanwhile, Gossip Cop has repeatedly been told that while Bieber and Gomez are committed to giving their love another shot, they are at not at the marriage stage. We guarantee you, there will not be an engagement over the holidays. Should Gomez and Bieber continue to work out their past differences and their relationship flourishes to a point where they get engaged, we'll have the accurate, verified information.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
