Grab the tissues, Jelena fans—Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez might have been just taking a break, but apparently, like so many relationship breaks, that break might be for good.
According to a new report in E! (opens in new tab), as revealed by a source, "Selena realized even though he's made some positive improvements, they just aren't a perfect match right now." Insert sad face emoji here.
As Bieber has been seen hanging out with Baskin Champion (opens in new tab), and Gomez took a trip to Australia (opens in new tab) without the "Sorry" singer, it certainly seems like the pair aren't reconciling right now.
However, People is reporting (opens in new tab) that Bieber "isn't dating" Champion, and that "he thinks and talks about Selena all the time. The chapter with her is definitely not finished." So there is, apparently, still hope for Jelena.
Previously, reports claimed that Bieber was hoping to reconcile with Gomez sooner rather than later. And it definitely seems as though he's dealing with it the hardest. A source told E! (opens in new tab), "Justin has been upset about the recent break from Selena and is trying to keep busy until they work things out."
And as for his dalliance with model Champion, E! reports (opens in new tab), "Justin was introduced to Baskin through his friend group and they have only hung out a few times. He has definitely been liking her company, but to say they are dating is a huge stretch. Justin isn't trying to be serious with anyone but Selena."
Only time will tell if Gomez and Bieber are meant to be, or if Jelena is over for good.
