Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are not “on a break,” nor did they have an “explosive fight” after returning from Cabo San Lucas, despite an entirely made-up report. The story was manufactured by a site that had by far the most inaccurate and fabricated articles of all the outlets monitored by Gossip Cop in 2017. Regardless, Gomez and Bieber are still dating.
The wholly concocted tale comes from HollywoodLife, which has rightly earned the nickname HollywoodLies. The blog begins its phony report by writing, “Oh no! Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are taking a break after fighting on their Cabo bae-cation.” From there, the often discredited outlet warns that its supposed “exclusive” will be “hard for diehard Jelena fans to hear,” but after celebrating New Year’s together in Mexico they had a fight that was “very serious.” “They were spotted arguing on the tarmac when they arrived in LA, too,” adds the site, which sometimes favors fiction writing over fact-checking.
HollywoodLies then quotes a seemingly made-up “source” as saying, “The fight they had was legit but all they just need now is a few days away from each other.” “They have seen each other a little too much and they need a break,” continues the ill-informed or fake source before adding, “They just need some alone time.” Like many of the site’s so-called “exclusive” stories about Gomez and Bieber, this too is a complete lie.
There was no fight. And there’s been no break. In fact, they arrived back in L.A. on Tuesday and worked out together on Wednesday. That’s hardly “a few days away from each other.” There are even photos of Gomez and Bieber after a private pilates workout at the West Hollywood studio Hot Pilates to disprove the story. Still, Gossip Cop reached out to a Gomez insider, who assures us on background that the HollywoodLife story is “fake news,” and a Bieber source echoes, “They just make up [expletive].”
Just a few days before HollywoodLies got caught in its latest manufactured article about the couple taking a “break” from each other after supposedly “fighting,” Gossip Cop busted the same site for a fake news story about how Gomez calls Bieber “my husband.” And before that, you’ll recall the blog asserted in a slew of articles that Bieber and Gomez were going to spend Thanksgiving and then Christmas together. But, as Gossip Cop correctly reported based on impeccable insiders, they didn’t share those holidays together, as the webloid wrongly predicated. Basically, if the most disproven outlet of 2017 maintains it has an “exclusive” about Gomez and Bieber, there’s a good chance that what’s really going on is the opposite of their claim.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
