There hasn’t been an official confirmation as of yet, but it’s pretty obvious that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together again. In the last few months they’ve been spotted riding bikes in downtown Los Angeles, they’ve been wearing each other’s clothes, and they’ve even shared a public kiss at Justin’s hockey game. And the latest development in this rekindled relationship is that the singer couple spent New Year’s Eve together.
Selena Gomez travelled to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with a few friends about a week before the New Year, and initially it was thought that the celebration would be an all-girls affair. Raquelle Stevens, one of the “Wolves” singer’s best friends shared a snap on Instagram that showed the gang frolicking on the Mexican beach. Gomez, who sported blond locks at the AMAs in November, has now changed her hair back to brunette, and was looking exceptionally well dressed in a sleek black one-piece swimsuit.
As it turned out, those initial reports were true, even if partly so. The 25-year-old did welcome the arrival of the New Year with her girlfriends, but that is only one part of the story. Because her former-slash-new flame Justin Bieber was apparently also there. The “Sorry” singer was spotted enjoying the sun in the popular tourist spot.
Bieber also took to Instagram on the 31st of December. In the photo, the 23-year-old showed off his inked bod wearing his white hoodie opened at the front as he posed next to two of his friends.
The Canadian also agreed to take a selfie with a fan from Mexico, which is further proof that he was indeed in Cabo.
Not only were Bieber and Gomez at the same place at the same time, but there’s a rumor the they had rented a pair of sea-side villas only 10 minutes away from each other. However, the couple, who had an on-and-off relationship from 2011 to 2015, weren’t actually photographed together.
The reports confirming that the potential lovebirds did welcome the New Year together are coming from different sides.
A source said for People: “Justin and Selena are doing great. They celebrated New Year’s Eve together in Cabo.”
Another source added: “Justin had a great new year’s Eve with Selena. He is looking forward to 2018 with her. It was a special evening shared with a few close friends in a beautiful place.”
E! News also had access to an insider who revealed that before flying over to Cabo to reunite with Gomez, Bieber had been vacationing with his family in the Mexican city of Cancun.
“Justin flew in to Cabo on a private jet from Cancun where he spent a few days with his family,” the insider said. “He arrived on Saturday evening and checked into an ocean-front villa 10 minutes away from Selena’s villa where she was staying.
“He and Selena spent time together again,” they continued. “They were very low-key and dressed casually. They rang in the New Year together and enjoyed watching fireworks over the ocean.”

Selena, who was suffering from lupus, an autoimmune disease, underwent a life-saving surgery this past summer. The kidney transplant seems to have been the occasion that brought her and Justin close again, only a few weeks after she had broken up with singer The Weeknd.
But not everything is going smoothly for the newly reunited couple. Apparently, SelGo’s family is not on board with her decision to return in the arms of the guy who, according to them, left her so depressed that she had to seek professional help and check into rehab to get over the breakup.
“It’s, of course, a bit frustrating that Selena’s family is still not happy about their relationship,” the source for People revealed. “Hopefully this will change in the new year.”
