Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez (Bauer Griffin)
Meanwhile, the singer kind of addressed the breakup in an interview over the weekend. E! reports he said during a radio interview: "I don't know what to say. I don't know what's going on in my life. To even assess that it doesn't make sense 'cause I have not made any comment."
Well, we do know that both stars are in New York right now. Bieber is performing Monday in Brooklyn and Gomez was seen at LAX on her way to NY Saturday. She tweeted "We're back NY" with a photo of her and another gal.
Now, here's the first part of the breakup story, which broke Friday night:
E! Online reported the young couple broke up about a week ago and Gomez was the one who pulled the plug. An unnamed source blames the split on both stars' demanding schedules: "Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship," the source told E!.
Rumors had been swirling for weeks that Justin, 18, and Selena, 20, were on the outs. The pair hadn't been spotted together in awhile, and just this week there was a report that Bieber was cozying up with 19-year-old Hungarian Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin. Bieber and Palvin reportedly went to a performance of The Lion King together this week and sources say the two were flirting up a storm.
On Thursday night Gomez tweeted a picture of the Biebs and Lil' Twist, with the Victoria's Secret model photo-bombing the shot with a goofy look on her face. Gomez's caption for the pic was simply "........". That's never a good sign.
Justin and Selena first sparked romance rumors when they were snapped on a date at IHOP in 2010, but they didn't go public with their romance until they attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party together in February 2011.
