It has been reported Justin Bieber has split from girlfriend Selena Gomez.
The news comes after Justin Bieber was apparently seen “chatting up” models backstage at the Victoria’s Secret show on Wednesday.
Ironically for Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber was seen taking 19-year-old Hungarian fashion model Barbara Palvin to see The Lion King on Broadway.
And it seems this could have been the straw that broke the camel’s back, as E! Online are reporting the couple has gone their separate ways.
According to a source, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez broke up about a week ago, last being spotted together on October 20.
An insider said: “Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship.”
Amongst claims they split last week, Selena Gomez angrily posted a picture on her Twitter page showing Justin Bieber with his rumored new squeeze Barbara Palvin in the background on Thursday.
The text the 20-year-old posted alongside it was a mysterious: “…”
To add even more spice to the story, it has emerged the fashion model attacked Selena Gomez star earlier this year.
In a webchat 11 months ago Barbara Palvin offered to sing her fans a song of their choice, but added: “I don’t like Selena Gomez by the way…”
But it seems she was trying to take back the insult, as when fans tweeted her about the video, Barbara Plavin told them: “I do like her as an actress! she is talented!:) i did that ustream a year ago. just forget it.:)”
However, Barbara Palvin was not shy to post images of her and the star at the high profile fashion show, and next to one where she is in her dressing gown with him, she said: “Okay sooo because u guys were askin for it! with @justinbieber! you were great tonight!”
Barbara Palvin also posted an image where she is posing with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and director Alfredo Flores.
Additionally, Barbara Palvin later wrote: “The Lion King,” with a heart symbol alongside it, however she was clearly referring to the 18-year-old hunk on Friday morning when she posted on Twitter: “hey everyone. please calm down. he is all yours!! 🙂 please :).”
Despite all the speculation, Justin Bieber, who was seen appearing in concert in New York on Friday evening, has been keeping mysteriously quiet on the subject.
Justin Bieber was spotted getting flirty with various Victoria’s Secret models on Wednesday night after performing at the catwalk show.
But Selena Gomez seems to be moving fast too if her own online postings are anything to go by.
On Thursday night Selena Gomez tweeted a cozy snap of herself lying down next to British star Gregg Sulkin as they filmed until the early hours of the morning on location in Hollywood, where they are shooting their Wizards Of Waverly Place reunion movie.
The news may be received well by fans of Justin Bieber, who have been unpleasant towards Selena Gomez since they started dating in early 2011, frequently attacking her via the Internet.
Selena Gomez has said in the past of the comments: “It hurts, it really does. I don’t feel like I’m doing anything wrong. I’ve been best friends with him for a very long time.
“It does hurt my feelings a lot, but I try not to focus on it.”
