Gomez and Bieber both attended Hillsong Church on Wednesday night in Los Angeles, but arrived separately, the source says. According to our source, there was no awkwardness between the pair, though the two appear to have cooled off on their relationship.
Bieber was snapped leaving church, wearing a palm tree-print cardigan, khaki pants and red Chuck Taylor sneakers.
“They were at church last night, they didn’t arrive or leave together, but they were very friendly and civil," the source says. "They’re still very close. It’s not awkward between them at all."
According to the source, Bieber still has plenty of feelings for Gomez, though the timing isn't right. The source says 25-year-old Gomez is also currently taking time to focus on herself. As of late, the "Wolves" singer has appeared to be spending more quality time with her gal pals.
"He loves her so much, but they both know a serious relationship right now is just too much to take on," the source says. “It’s been a weird few weeks for Selena. She’s tired of taking on other people’s dramas and just wants to continue focusing on herself and going to church is a big part of that. She knows the paps will be there and make a whole thing of her and Justin having a ‘run-in,’ but it’s not like that, they’re fine.”
“Honestly, it’s their friends who don’t really know how to handle the whole situation," the source adds. "Everyone’s always guessing, ‘Are they or aren’t they [together]?' They’ve had a very volatile relationship in the past, so everyone is bracing themselves for it to turn south again, but so far it’s been fine.”
On Thursday, 24-year-old Bieber was snapped meeting up with model Baskin Champion for a morning workout at SoulCycle in Beverly Hills, both dressed in gray sweatshirts and hats.
