Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s most recent split was allegedly over an empty promise he made her involving the two of them getting married. The pair broke up last week amidst a flurry of rumors concerning his possible infidelity and her unhappiness with the company he was once again choosing to keep, despite her previous warnings.
A source claiming to be close to the once again ex-couple recently gave an exclusive statement to popular gossip website HollywoodLife, in which they revealed details concerning last week’s breakup. The source spoke of the very public fight Gomez and Bieber were seen engaged in at St. Maarten International Airport just over a week ago, an incident which was highly photographed and spread among various media outlets shortly thereafter. The picture of the disagreement itself came as a shock to many, as the two seemed to have been having a very enjoyable time on their vacation to the Netherlands, having been photographed on romantic picnics and the like. The aforementioned source claims that the Come & Get It Singer was furious with the Canadian pop star after he failed to pop the question during the trip, which she was reportedly under the strong impression that he was planning to do so during their trip. An impending marriage proposal was allegedly one of the main reasons the Texas native agreed to take Bieber back once more, as the source says that Gomez needed to feel like the Canadian pop star was fully and truly committed to her this time around. Before the trip, Bieber had reportedly told her that he had already been looking at engagement rings in order to take their relationship to the next level. When he did not ask her to marry him in St. Maarten, she was extremely disappointed and brought up the matter while flying home. After hearing mention of it, Bieber was said to have flown off the handle and become extremely upset with Gomez for even bringing the subject up, something she is said to feel proves that he has not changed one bit since their last break up.
Another reason behind the couple’s split is said to lie with the second youngest member of the highly publicized Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kendall Jenner. Jenner and Bieber were just seen last week enjoying a seemingly romantic dinner in Paris, in which they were photographed drinking champagne and laughing freely with one another. The fact that the 20-year-old was even seen in the company of the young model whatsoever was cause for concern for fans of Jelena (a nickname fans created to celebrate the union of Bieber and Gomez), as Gomez has made it extremely clear that she has no wish to associate herself with either of the Jenner sisters or the life they choose to lead. There were also rumors that the 22-year-old’s decision to break up with her on-again-off-again boyfriend following the 2014 Coachella Festival, which took place in April, was related to intimate photographs and text messages she found on his phone courtesy of the Jenner sisters themselves.
It remains to be seen whether or not Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s recent split was over a failed promise of a marriage proposal. Neither they nor their representatives have yet given any official statement on the matter.
