Following the official report pointing out “crazy schedules” as the cause of their relationship woes, a new development emerges. In fact, it could have been jealousy that served as the wedge that pried this Hollywood couple apart.
E! news—who broke the original breakup story—is reporting that the relationship conclusion was “a long time coming."
The entertainment news source adds that a photo of Selena locking lips with Parental Guidance co-star Nat Wolff on set (for the movie) could have sent Bieber over the edge…Though, I highly doubt it, seeing as Wolff appears to have only a fraction of the “swag” that Selena’s ex-beau brings to the table.
RadarOnline.com adds that Justin and Selena are keeping in contact post-split via text. He’s apparently begging her for forgiveness.
"He is texting her like crazy trying to stay in her good graces," a source tells the gossip site.
Radar’s report seems to back the jealousy hypothesis as well…
"The problem in the first place is that Selena was a little bit of a jealous girlfriend and Justin wasn't really taking her feelings into regard," added the same source.
When it was first announced that the Biebs and Selena were going their separate ways, the couple seemed to have reached a mutual agreement in order to accommodate their professional lives—Selena as a budding actress and Glamour’s “Woman of the Year,” and Justin as a worldwide teenage fantasy come true…
“Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship,” a source said.
Prior to the official announcement, people had long been questioning their relationship status, their apparent problems coming to a head when Justin was photographed hanging out with Victoria Secret Angel, Barbara Palvin, a girl that gets paid for people to undress with their eyes.
In other words, yeah…if you were Selena, you’d be jealous too.
