Tuesday night—just a week after Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez reportedly decided to take a break (opens in new tab) because Selena's mama don't like him and she likes everyone—Justin was spotted (opens in new tab) hanging out with the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Baskin Champion, formerly known as "a mystery blonde." Surprisingly, fans were not pleased.

But apparently, the 24-year-old isn't taking the Ross Geller approach (opens in new tab), instead Justin maintains that he just hung out with one girl to get back at the other. How very middle school!
A source told ET (opens in new tab), Justin "knows everything he's doing is going to get out," and this appearance with Baskin was to prove a point. "[Selena is] off having fun with her friends and so he’s showing that he can still go out and have fun too," the source says. "And to be honest, I’m sure there’s a part of him that wants to make Selena a bit jealous! This seems like right out of the old Justin’s textbook! He was very manipulative with her emotions the last time and did stuff like this a lot."

Meanwhile, Selena is hanging with friends in Australia, napping, baskin' in the sun, taking down body-shamers (opens in new tab), and, hopefully, ignoring Justin's antics.

"Selena and Justin decided to take a break mainly because of Selena’s mom and her disapproval of Justin. Justin’s family loves Selena, but Selena’s family has put her in a very conflicting spot because they still don’t trust Justin," a source told Us Weekly (opens in new tab) when the break began.
A different source added: “Her mom was her rock when she was having her health complications. Justin and Selena decided to take a break to give her family some more time to heal and take in the idea of her and Justin being a couple again."
Justin's date with Baskin is definitely helping. Right.
