Things between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez continue to heat up!
The former flames, who dated on-and-off from 2010 to 2015, have been fueling relationship reconciliation rumors while spending time together in the wake of Gomez’s split from The Weeknd.And though multiple sources told PEOPLE over the weekend the duo are still not officially back together and are taking a more low-key approach to their relationship, they appeared to be close as can be on Wednesday night when they were photographed kissing at Bieber’s weekly hockey game at Los Angeles Valley Ice Center in Ventura, California.
Jelena is back, you guys. This is not a drill. A photo of the couple kissing is all the proof we need. TMZ.com shared the passionate kiss pic and the tweets about Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber kissing are bonkers. While it’s been known for weeks that the duo are back together, this is the first time they’ve been spotted being affectionate in public.
In the pic, Gomez plants a kiss on Bieber during his weekly hockey game in L.A. after he glided over to visit her during his time on the ice.
She last checked out Bieber on ice a couple of weeks ago, which definitely had everyone getting those old-school Jelena feels when she wore his jersey. This kiss, however, takes things to a new level and fans have absolutely no chill. And they shouldn’t because this is pretty epic.
This PDA moment all comes on the heels of Gomez’s recent breakup with The Weeknd, which was followed by the rumored re-coupling of Gomez and Bieber. It was all enough to make our heads spin, for sure. Everyone has been watching and waiting for the pair to confirm that they are definitely back on and this is a sure sign that they are more than just friends.
Bieber and Gomez went through a period of estrangement following an Instagram spat last summer after Bieber flaunted his new relationship with Sofia Richie on Instagram. But according to multiple sources, Bieber reached out to the “Wolves” singer after learning about her kidney transplant.
They had their differences in the past, of course, but Bieber is apparently hoping it’s not too late to say “Sorry.”
An insider close to the pair previously told PEOPLE, “Justin is happy Selena is single. He hopes to regain her trust so they can get back together.”
They’ve been photographed multiple times together since — riding bikes, heading to dinner and attending church but are still taking things slow. “They just backed off a little from being out there,” said one source.
According to a Bieber pal, the attention on them got “too crazy” and the he “didn’t like the chaos.”
“Justin canceled his tour to take care of his mental health and he wants to continue to focus on this,” added the Bieber pal. “They agreed to stay more low-key.”
Another source tells PEOPLE, “Justin is still very happy. They have had quiet date nights at home and outings to local, low-key spots. They are still catching up and just enjoy hanging out. They have learned from past mistakes and are not putting any pressure on each other. Things are much different and more mature.”
