Justin Bieber Is Already Hanging Out with a Girl Who Is Not Sofia Richie

It's only been a week!

Well, it looks like last weekend's chaos (opens in new tab) might've been too much for Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie's budding romance to withstand.

For those who aren't aware of what went down, Justin blew up Instagram with pics (opens in new tab) documenting every adorable, couple-y moment from his trip with Sofia Richie (opens in new tab). His fans were less than thrilled with the match and made their opinions known (opens in new tab) in the comments, prompting Biebs to threaten to make his account private if they didn't cease the hateful behavior.

Then, adding fuel to the fire, Justin's ex Selena Gomez chimed in (opens in new tab), scolding him for blaming his loyal fans (opens in new tab) and telling him not to post pictures of his new girlfriend if he couldn't handle what people had to say.

From there, the feud exploded as Justin and Selena exchanged insults (opens in new tab) and jabs. Ultimately, Selena apologized (opens in new tab), but not before Justin completely deleted his Instagram.

Fast forward to a week later and Justin is out partying at Tape Nightclub in London with Rihanna—and more intriguingly, a new girl who is definitely not Sofia Richie.

The mystery woman's face is covered in most shots captured by the paparazzi, but considering Sofia just got a pretty significant haircut, there's no way it's her.

But as some eagle-eyed fans noticed, the singer's new lady friend isn't actually new at all. Her name is Bronte Blampied and she was one of the model-y members (opens in new tab) of Justin's crew during his vacation in Hawaii (opens in new tab) earlier this month.

Perhaps they're just buddies though. Buddies who take vacations together in Hawaii. Buddies who go clubbing in London until 5 a.m…
