Kendall Jenner had no part in the most recent breakup of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, at least according to a family friend. The source says that the Canadian pop star’s relationship with the second eldest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has been widely blown out of proportion, and that the 18-year-old is not the home wrecker that much of the public has accused her of being.
Jonathan Cheban, who has gained notoriety as Kim Kardashian’s best friend, says that his BFF’s half-sister is nothing more than friends with Bieber, and that rumors of a supposed love triangle are as untrue as it gets. He believes that proof of his statement lies with the reason behind Bieber and Gomez’s airport blowout in St.Maarten’s, which occurred at the end of September. The reason for their public spat has been recently revealed as the result of a crossroads regarding the possibility of marriage. Gomez was reportedly under the impression that her on-again-off-again boyfriend was intending to propose during their romantic vacation in the Netherlands, an impression that was reportedly caused by the Toronto native’s prior claims to have been ring shopping before their most recent reconciliation. Upon the end of their trip, which had resulted in no glimpse of a proposal whatsoever, Gomez was furious with the singer for what she felt was leading her on in order to regain her affection. Upon her mention of her feelings, Bieber reportedly flew off the handle and told her he never intended to take such a big step at this point in their relationship. This altercation led to the couple being once again off, although Cheban reportedly has high hopes for their reunion, even going as far as to state his opinion that they will end up married.
The Jenner-Gomez-Bieber drama has been at an all-time peak since the 2014 Coachella Festival in April, when Jelena is said to have had a falling out over both Jenner sisters. Following the festival, Gomez made it quite clear that she had no intention of associating with the girls or their chosen lifestyle any further, as she felt they were a toxic influence on her life and distracted her from her goal of making music. Further reports alleged that the 22-year-old was enraged following the discovery of intimate photographs and text messages on her boyfriend’s phone, courtesy of the Jenner sisters. Rumors of said text messages began to fly once more following the pair’s aforementioned most recent breakup, along with the fact that Bieber dined with Jenner at a popular Parisian restaurant while Gomez was also in the country, not choosing to include her in their outing. Those close to the Texas native say she was heartbroken at the fact that Bieber blatantly disregarded her feelings towards the Jenner sisters, and chose to keep associating with them even though he knew she would not approve.
It remains to be seen whether or not Kendall Jenner was in any way responsible for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s most recent split. Jonathan Cheban, however, remains adamant that the 18-year-old is 100 percent innocent and did nothing to break the pair up once more.
