Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie have split. The two, who briefly dated and took their young romance to a few countries, including Japan and Mexico, have broken up. For his part, sources have repeatedly maintained to Gossip Cop that Bieber is young and just having fun without getting too serious with anyone.

While Richie noted in an interview that she and Bieber had a “special relationship,” and he was “very easy to talk to,” they were not nearly in as committed a relationship as presented by the media. HollywoodLife, which is known for its made-up and inaccurate articles, alleged Richie tweeted “love you” to Bieber. The webloid further squealed, “Way to… waste no time in expressing your feelings.” But it was entirely untrue. The often discredited site based its false report on a fake Richie Twitter account.

Still, Bieber and Richie cared for each other. After a number of the singer’s fans posted hateful remarks on photos he posted on Instagram of himself and Richie in Japan, Bieber warned his supporters that he was going to make his account private. He expressed that the nasty comments were “getting out of hand.” Ultimately, Bieber deactivated his Instagram account.

Despite Richie being only 18 years old and Bieber being 22, the two have reportedly been acting very mature and have made a clean split rather than going back-and-forth. Of course, time will tell if the breakup is permanent or not. Currently, Bieber and Richie have completely gone on with their lives separately. Gossip Cop has reached out to their individuals reps.
