On Sunday, the 20-year-old 'Boyfriend' singer posted a black and white selfie showing Selena gently kissing his shoulder on the beach (or some other outdoorsy place 20-somethings go to be all romantic and whatnot).
The photo did not provide any sort of caption, and was quickly taken down. Not that it stopped everyone in the world from grabbing a copy of it while it was still up.
Before deleting the post, Bieber allegedly commented on the photo saying, "I hate seeing mean ass comments about the woman I love. We're young and we argue and fight like every other couple. But we laugh and cry and relate with one another on a different level. Who knows what the future holds, but at least don't fill my timeline with nonsense."
The comment, supposedly posted by Bieber, was screen-grabbed, and the photo of the comment was posted by a Selena Gomez fan club twitter account, SelebaBrazilianFans. However, the authenticity of the comment can't be verified, as the original post no longer exists.
They then both proceeded to post vague cryptic tweets, with Selena writing, ""Sometimes we think we aren't good enough. But then I realize when I think I'm alone I have God."
So could this random, romantic, quickly-deleted photo of Selena and Justin be a bid by Justin to win her back? Or, could the photo have been taken today, and the couple never broke up in the first place?
Well, if history is any indication, one or the other of them will tweet out something obtuse, and the speculation in continue indefinitely.
Just a heads up to all the other stars whose relationship keeps getting thrust into the limelight: If you don't want people speculating about your love life, it might benefit you to not post puzzling clues about it on public forums.
