Justin Bieber, celebrity known for his share of controversies and strings of high profile relationships and break-ups as much as for his music.
The two sparked dating rumours in 2010 and captured the hearts of both their fan bases, resulting in the #Jelena hashtag. Since Bieber and Gomez are two of the most famous young stars of their time, their admirers range from supportive to downright obsessive.
Bieber/Gomez dating rumours began to circulate in 2010. But it wasn’t until January 2011 that the pop stars confirmed their romance, namely by partaking in major PDA while on vacation together in St. Lucia. Later in February, the couple make their first official appearance together at the Vanity Fair Oscars, and a new A-lister pairing is born.
Rumours that Gomez has dumped the Canadian pop star begin to surface, after a Bieber fan claimed she had sex with him backstage at a show in October 2010, and that he is the father of her 4-month-old child. However, it’s confirmed that the breakup rumours weren’t true.
In September 2011, clearly keen to keep his girlfriend happy, the Canadian singer pulls out all the stops on a million-dollar date. He hires a 20,000 seater arena in LA, lights candles and puts a table for two in the centre where they enjoyed a romantic dinner.
In November 2012, Justin and Selena officially had break-up #1. The reason behind their split was never fully explained, although there were plenty of cheating rumors circulating almost immediately afterward, and some sources said that Selena was the one who ended it. Fans (and the internet) also begin to wonder whether there’s a relationship brewing between JB and Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin. Palvin took to Twitter, confirming that there was nothing going on between her and Bieber.
In Jan 2013, The pair reportedly got back together; Gomez travels to Norway to visit Bieber. After a few more on-again off-again appearances in the media, the couple officially confirmed they’d split.
But all of that changed in May 2013, when Justin took to Instagram to post a photo that showed him and Selena snuggling (and, P.S., he was shirtless.)
In January 2014, Justin and Selena were spotted hanging out together in L.A. while riding segways, which added fuel to the rumors that the couple was back on good terms.
But the Jelena bliss didn’t last very long, because in September, Selena sent out a series of mysterious tweets that hinted at trouble. Again. She wrote, “We have to learn the hard way sometimes,” and “Sometimes we think we aren’t good enough.”
Bieber first met model Barbara Palvin at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in November 2012, when he was still dating Gomez. Rumors swirled when the "Baby" singer and Palvin were seen together at the Broadway musical The Lion King and when Gomez retweeted a photo of her boyfriend and the model. Barbara even started receiving hate messages on Twitter, but she let all of the Beliebers and Selena know that there was nothing going on between them. She denied any relationship rumors, however, and stated that the two were just friends.
The pair was rumored to be hooking up after they were spotted at an LA night club — and later that night, Kourt was seen leaving the Montage Beverly Hills hotel (one of Justin’s favorite places to stay) at 4 a.m.
The pair have met up for a number of dates that involved trips to church, and now OK! magazine is claiming that it’s that spiritual aspect of their relationship that is really pulling them together.
“Kourtney says Justin’s more mature than Scott, even though he’s a decade younger,” a source close to the star shared with the magazine. “She loves that he’s as deeply spiritual as she is. It’s a real point of connection for them. She’s developed strong feelings for him.”
The relationship between Kourtney and Justin has seen it’s highs and lows over the past year, but as 2017 goes on it seems they are only getting closer. Shortly before Kourtney jetted off to Costa Rica on a family vacation, she met up with Justin for a late night outing at the Peppermint Club in Hollywood, California. Oh, and those church dates? They were within just weeks of each other on February 8 and 22.
As for the 14-year age gap between Kourtney and Justin, it doesn’t seem to matter to either of them. Kourtney isn’t bothered by it “one bit”, claims a source,” who added that “she doesn’t care what anybody else thinks; this is for real.”
Lionel Richie's daughter became linked with the Biebs after being spotted out and about together on multiple occasions, including a recent getaway to Mexico to celebrate her 18th birthday, a romantic trip she tells Billboard was partially to celebrate her "freedom!"
Sofia and Justin were spotted packing on the PDA during their trip, but when asked about him she answered with a coy response. "We have a special relationship," she shared. "Justin is very easy to talk to, and that's hard to find with people in Los Angeles."
Bieber, not only whisked Richie away to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, but also deleted his Instagram account to protect Richie after getting into a comment battle with his fans and ex Selena Gomez.
“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand,” Bieber wrote alongside a black-and-white photo of him and Richie last month. “If you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people like that.”
Gomez then weighed in on the drama, commenting on the snap: "If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol - it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.”
But it seems that Sofia Richie was never destined for a happy ending with Justin Bieber, as the Baby singer 'doesn't want a relationship'.
Bieber is said to have felt his romance with the 18-year-old was getting too 'hot and heavy' - leading to him calling their dalliance off.
The model's name got linked with Bieber's when she was spotted in the passenger seat of the singer's rented Lamborghini on Jan. 23, 2014, when Bieber got arrested for "drag racing and driving under the influence." Although they never confirmed their relationship, the duo were allegedly seen getting intimate several times even after the incident.
The singer rang in 2016 with the then 19-year-old model, who is also the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, with lots of PDA during their Caribbean getaway in St. Barts. Bieber even posted a picture of the couple sharing a passionate kiss on his Instagram account. The duo were later spotted vacationing in Cancun, Mexico.
Telling Marie Claire for its May 'Fresh Faces 2016' issue, Hailey explained: 'I don't want attention out of dating somebody. Texts started coming through, crazy phone calls...it's hard to date somebody in this industry.
Back in February the leggy blonde talked to E! about her relationship with the Sorry hitmaker and admitted: 'We are not an exclusive couple. He's about to go on tour, relationships at this age are already complicated, but I don't really like to talk about it because it's between me and him.'
Reason for breaking up: All signs point to the drama that surrounded Bieber and Sofia Richie with a source stating, "Hailey doesn't know how to get over him, so it's hard for her not to pay attention to it... all these fresh Sofia posts are making her very sad." They added, Hailey "knows the drill by now. [Justin] can't be alone and always needs a girl by his side."
A Californian woman had accused pop star Justin Bieber of fathering her child, a three-month-old baby boy.
Mariah Yeater, 20, claimed in a lawsuit filed this month that she got pregnant after she had sex with Bieber, 17, backstage at one of his concerts when she was 19, according to a report in Star Magazine.
She demanded that the singer, who was dating actress and singer Selena Gomez, take a paternity test to "scientifically confirm" that the child is his.
Miss Yeater also wanted him to "provide adequate support for my baby".
But Bieber's representatives have said the allegation is completely false. A spokesman for the singer told TMZ.com that the lawsuit contained "malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims."
The lawsuit was later quietly dropped and Yeater's lawyers had withdrawn from the case, according to the report.
Bieber had denied the allegations and was reportedly prepared to take a paternity test to prove he is not the baby's father.
In January 2014, the singer was accused of egging a neighbor's home. Upon getting a search warrant, Sheriff's Department deputies raided Bieber's house looking for evidence and charges were subsequently filed against him.
He ultimately pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism and paid $80,000 in restitution to his neighbors, completed community service and was on two years of probation.
In April 2014, the singer traveled to Toyko's Yasukuni Shrine, a structure that is controversial in the country because it honors Japanese criminals who committed horrific acts against China and other parts of Asia during World War II. Bieber sparked backlash after he Instagrammed a photo of himself bowing before the shrine."Thank you for your blessings," he captioned the shot.
After learning of the shrine's history, the pop star deleted the original photo and uploaded a headline from Time about the incident. In the caption, he offered his apologies to anyone he had offended.
"While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine. I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer," he wrote. "To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan."
Rolling Stone asked a 16-year-old Bieber for his thoughts on some political and social issues, and as you would probably expect from any teenager, his comments were not entirely well-considered.
“I really don’t believe in abortion,” Bieber said. “It’s like killing a baby.” When it comes to cases of rape, he added, “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don’t know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
A then-19-year-old Bieber visited Amsterdam’s Anne Frank House in-between stops on the European leg of his 2013 tour. At the time, a source told PEOPLE that he made the trip after reading the famous diary Frank wrote while in hiding during the Holocaust. One would think bad PR couldn’t possibly stem from a celebrity taking interest in one of the most poignant, tragic figures of the 20th century, but Bieber again found himself on the receiving end of vitriolic criticism.
“Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber,” he wrote in the museum’s guestbook, according to their Facebook page.
A number of celebrities poked fun at Bieber for the message on Twitter.
Justin Bieber had been charged with drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving without a valid licence, police in Miami said on Thursday.
Bieber, 19, was arrested in the early hours of the morning after he was caught drag racing a yellow Lamborghini, according to police. Officers said that he smelled of alcohol and swore when he was pulled over.
Miami Beach police chief Raymond Martinez said officers estimated Bieber was driving at "anywhere up to 55 to 60mph" when stopped in a 30mph zone. He was detained at 4.09am ET.
A judge later set Bieber's bail at $2,500.
When the arrested officer attempted to stop Bieber – whose hit As Long As You Love Me delivers the tender message that a simple love can defy all hardship a couple might face – the singer inquired: "Why the fuck are you doing this?"
The teen pop star’s pet monkey was seized by custom officials in Germany and quarantined after he arrived in the country. The capuchin monkey and 19th-birthday present, Mally, was taken when Bieber landed at Munich Airport to play a string of concerts throughout Europe. Bieber had brought the monkey to Germany aboard a private jet but had neglected to obtain the necessary documents, including a health certificate, to bring the pet into the country.
German authorities have asked pop star Justin Bieber to hand over nearly $8,000 for the costs of caring for the capuchin monkey. The bill covers the cost of vaccinations, accommodation and transport for the monkey, known as Mally, which is now being cared for at a zoo in northern Germany.
Customs officials posted a public notice of the bill after failing to get a response from Bieber at the address he gave to customs officials.
Guitarist Andrew Watt posted an emotional tribute to Prince after news broke of the music legend’s death. “Today waking up to this news I am truly beside myself devastated the last of the greatest living performers my guitar idol,” the musician wrote on Instagram.
“Well not the last greatest living performer,” Bieber appeared to write in response. Although the singer’s camp said the comments were a total fraud, the viral fake-out was enough to stir up controversy and make headlines.
While leaving his London hotel March 8, Justin Bieber flipped out on paparazzi and had to be controlled by his own bodyguard. Justin shoved one of the photographers as he rushed to get into his van and escape the paparazzi. But when the photographer began insulting Justin, claiming he had assaulted him, the pop star emerged from the van and tried to attack him for real!
When Justin jumped out of the van, he screamed, “What the f–k did you say?”
o which the photographer responded, “You heard what I said … you heard what I f–king said, mate.”
Justin then lunged at the photographer and threatened, “I’ll f–king beat the f–k out of you!” before being restrained by his bodyguard.
The night before, Justin collapsed on stage while performing in London and had to be hospitalized for breathing problems.
Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber‘s longstanding feud had finally come to a head. While Victoria’s Secret model, Miranda Kerr was still married to Orlando in October 2012, she was spotted flirting with the biebs, and the two reportedly even exchanged dirty texts! Things finally came to a boil between the two heart throbs on July 29, when they got into a tussle at Cipriani in Ibiza, complete with an alleged punch thrown by Orlando himself. Witnesses said Bieber went to Bloom’s table and taunted him with comments about Miranda vowing to “make him a man”. Furious Bloom, jumped over a sofa and tried to punch Bieber but missed.
Later Bieber posted a sexy picture of Miranda on Twitter. Miranda’s relationship with Bieber was a factor in her and Bloom splitting in 2013 after three years of marriage. According to a source: "Bloom can’t believe that someone he regards as a silly little boy has had this impact on his relationship. He is absolutely fuming.”
A list of ‘demands’ made by Justin Bieber for his India tour is going viral.
