Justin Bieber Ignores Selena Gomez Backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Continues to Confuse Fans
By Desiree Murphy
When it comes to their status as a couple, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez really love to keep us guessing!
Even though Beliebers and Selenators were initially thrilled just to have Jelena back in the same building Sunday night, it doesn't seem that the on-again, off-again couple is getting closer to a reunion any time soon.
An eyewitness backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Awards at The Forum in Inglewood, California, tells ET that when Gomez was on her way to take photos during the show, Bieber walked by her -- but didn't say a word, totally ignoring her as she passed.
The "Hands to Myself" singer quickly abandoned her trip upstairs to meet the press, the eyewitness added.
During the show, Bieber took the stage to perform a medley of songs from his Purpose album, including "Love Yourself" and "Company." A source tells ET that Gomez conveniently arrived just moments after the 22-year-old pop star had finished his performance.
Oh, and did we mention Gomez's bestie, Taylor Swift, totally threw shade at the "Sorry" singer during his performance? Yeah, that happened.
But later in the night, Gomez was all smiles as her ex-boyfriend accepted his award for Male Artist of the Year. She even stood up to support him during the standing ovation he received from the star-studded crowd, leaving us all at home feeling more confused than ever.
The update comes nearly two weeks after Gomez attended Bieber's sold-out Purpose show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and three weeks after Bieber put fans in frenzy by posting a throwback of the two mid-lip-lock.
