Justin Bieber has been ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, as the "Same Old Love" singer is currently in rehab to recover from depression and anxiety.
Bieber's romance with Gomez has gone through turmoil, but the pair has been known to have gone on and off throughout their relationship. US Weekly reported that their controversial romance has been described by fans as "Triple L": Loving, Leaving, and Loving Again.
The pair's relationship dates back to 2010, but has been unstable all throughout. Nonetheless, the pair managed to stay together until around 2015, after which they parted ways for good.
The Hollywood Life reported that Selena's planning to take time off from making music, which she announced during her "Revival Tour" in August. She said that she wants some time off to focus on her health and her happiness. Speculations were that her tour's cancellation was related to drugs or alcohol use, which was not the case, according to People.
But just weeks before Selena made her announcement, she figured in a feud with Justin, who angrily threatened his fans on Instagram that he'll delete his account if they don't start becoming "genuine fans" by treating her then-girlfriend, Sophia Richie, nicely.
Selena didn't take to that kindly, as she came to the defense of Justin's fans, saying, "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."
That move, however, backfired for Selena. Justin dissed back at her, saying that she's using him to attract attention for herself. A war of words thus ensued between the two. Selena said that she was the one who forgave Justin of his many infidelities. Justin, for his part, retorted that Selena cheated on him as well.
After that nasty exchange, Hollywood Gossips reported that Selena's family contacted Justin to caution him against going near her, or even contacting her in any way. It's reported that Selena's family blames Justin for leading her into a "downward spiral."
