Justin Bieber‘s partying is ruining his reunion with Selena Gomez, according to a completely wrong report from a foreign tabloid. This story claims the couple is being torn apart by Bieber’s supposedly wild ways, but it just isn’t true. Gossip Cop can debunk the allegations.
The article in question can be found in the current edition of NW, which asks in a headline, “Did Biebs’s Partying Ruin Jelena 2.0?” The piece begins, “Is it too late to say sorry now? That’s what Justin Bieber may want to start singing to Selena Gomez as talk of yet another split reaches fever pitch.” After referencing the false Life & Style story about Bieber and Gomez being headed for a split split, the gossip magazine alleges, “Biebs’s partying is what’s driven a wedge between him and Sel.”
“They’re just too different,” a so-called “insider” is quoted as saying. The outlet asserts that the couple is on “different pages right now,” because while Gomez was recently in treatment, Bieber “just can’t stay out of da clubs,” even though he “claims to have cleaned up his bad-boy ways.” As evidence, the publication points to Bieber partying with Dorothy Wang, as seen on Instagram, in late January. The singer, however, was actually at the venue for pal Ben Baller’s birthday, and the jewelry designer was jointly celebrating with reality star Wang.
But the Australian tabloid maintains that’s “not the only time Justin’s let loose over the past few weeks,” bringing up his early January ski trip and his Maldives vacation with his mom, as if those are scandalous adventures. There was also supposedly a “boozy bar crawl” in Hollywood,” with Bieber accused of “ending the month with eight days of drinking, dancing and, er, ditching his girlfriend in La La Land.” Of course, those claims are unsubstantiated, and the only reason he and Gomez were apart in late January is because she was at a treatment facility on the East Coast.
Nevertheless, the magazine contends, “Meanwhile, it’s clear Sel has no interest in partying… And it seems Justin’s hangovers are the last things she wants in her new life.” The outlet concludes by claiming Gomez “hinted” in her song “It Ain’t Me” that Bieber’s alleged drinking and partying is “what wrecked their previous relationship.” Opines the publication, “Clearly Biebs didn’t get the message.” Actually, it’s NW that didn’t get the message, because while the song is about a romance ruined by alcoholism, Gomez didn’t write the lyrics. Far from being inspired by Bieber, the track is actually about a relationship songwriter Ali Tamposi endured. Gomez came on board about a month after it was written.
So, to be clear, the publication has flimsy proof of Bieber being on a partying spree and its theorizing about “It Ain’t Me” doesn’t hold up at all. What also doesn’t hold up is the assertions that the pair are on “different pages.” Bieber and Gomez both went to the same church session on Wednesday, and then on Thursday they attended a Rex Orange County concert together. Clearly their relationship hasn’t been ruined, nor are they spending their time partying. Unlike the couple, you can consider this obviously inaccurate tabloid story, well, torn apart.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
