The long and complicated saga of “Jelena,” began 2665 days ago when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were spotted arm in arm at a Philadelphia IHOP. The news broke that the teen idols were enjoying a “cuddly” date at an IHOP in Philadelphia.
With dating rumors swirling around, on January 2011 paparazzi clicked the then 16- and 18-year-olds are kissing on a yacht in St. Lucia. They essentially proved their fans that they were together.
At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, the teen couple made their red carpet debut together, eventually confirming their relationship publicly.
For the next ten months, all seemed to be happy and content for the duo. But, suddenly some tabloid sites started alleging the two of not being a solid couple as people think.
It was November 2012 Bieber and Gomez broke up for the first time due to the conflicts and immature age.
Although Jelena isn’t together, and despite that fact the fans theorized that Gomez’s new song “Come & Get It,” with lyrics like “Can’t stop because I love it, hate the way I love you / All day all night, maybe I’m addicted for life, no lie,” is all about Bieber.
By the end of 2013, Bieber admitted that the two aren’t on speaking terms, although his love for her is still active. 2014, was a confusing year in the Jelena timeline. Briber was arrested for drinking and driving on top of that without a valid license.
In November, Gomez released her new single “The Heart Wants What It Wants,” which she suggested is about Bieber. She gave an emotional performance of the song at the American Music Awards. This signaled that their relationship was finally running its course. But that same month only Bieber unfollows her on Instagram.
Eventually, in December, he posted a picture of himself with Hailey Baldwin, where the caption says he’s “super single.”
2015 was the year where no one knew what exactly was going on, perhaps not even Bieber and Gomez themselves. Where Bieber continued to post throwback pictures of Gomez on Instagram.
Gomez made it clear that she’s sick of being defined by their relationship.
In January 2016, Justin Bieber posted some sizzling pictures with Hailey Baldwin, to which many thought that they are dating. The speculation increased when Baldwin made a cameo in Bieber’s GQ cover story. Later he described her as “someone I love. We spend a lot of time together.”
2017 November was a conscious recoupling for both. As reported by their friends, the duo was spotted hanging out again, just after Gomez’s kidney transplant.
But recently Selena seemed to delete her Instagram post that gave tribute to Beiber on his birthday. Baldwin and Justin got married in 2018. Though Selena seemed to be disturbed but never commented about them publicly when asked.
