Although their relationship is now long over, it’s not unlikely that both Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have lasting effects from the highly publicized relationship.
Recently, after a very trying decent into arrests, Justin Bieber told US Weekly that he is ready to turn over a new leaf.
But among his statements about his future endeavors, Bieber mentioned that the next woman he dates should be someone who is supportive and trustworthy.
The emphasis however begs the question, is he saying this because ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez wasn’t trustworthy? “At this point in my life I’m so focused on myself that I’m not looking for a girlfriend,” said Bieber.
“I’m just trying to make sure I’m 100 percent so I can add to the person I want to be with.
I want a girl I can trust, who I can lean on.
This business is hard, and I want someone I can confide in.” Admittedly it seems unfair that Bieber, who allegedly cheated on Gomez several times during their relationship would be implying that Gomez was not trustworthy.
But then again, Hollywood Life did report rumors that Gomez was a bit too cozy with rapper Gucci Mane while filming “Spring Breakers.” Although most of these things are indeed speculation, it’s of note that Gomez is not the one who has spent the last few months being arrested.
Whether or not Bieber is to be believed is up for debate, but he certainly has not made his case.
One thing is for certain: it doesn’t appear that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had the healthiest of relationships and both are likely better off not rekindling any lingering passions.
