On-again-off-again couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been keeping quite a low profile lately since they've officially gotten back together (opens in new tab). They've had a significant decrease in outings compared to last month when they were spotted riding bikes (opens in new tab) together and strolling on romantic walks (opens in new tab) (you know, the usual a few days after you break up with your other ex (opens in new tab), The Weeknd).

Though it looks like this may be the new normal for Jelena. A People source has revealed (opens in new tab) the pair won't even be spending Christmas together as Bieber works on trying to "prove that he is a better boyfriend." The source also admits, "Justin’s family always loved Selena, but Selena’s family is still not happy about her seeing Justin." Juicy, to say the least, but totally understandable.


Recently, Gomez revealed why she reunited with Bieber in an interview with Billboard (opens in new tab). "I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life," she says. "So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn't right. But that doesn't mean caring for someone ever goes away." #JelenaForever?
