Selena Gomez turned up in Malibu, California earlier this week and did so on the heels of recent rumors regarding her alleged "break" from Justin Bieber.
While several outlets have reported on the fact that Gomez was visiting celebrity hotspot Nobu restaurant with a friend and a Bible in hand, it isn't the Bible that makes the story relevant to her relationship with Bieber. Instead, it is the restaurant.
As some may know, Nobu is just steps away from the home where Bieber currently lives.
Although Bieber wasn't spotted at Nobu when Gomez was present, he could have potentially seen his on-again, off-again girlfriend by simply looking out of one of his windows. As to whether or not Bieber was home at the time of Gomez's Nobu visit, he certainly could have been. After all, he turned up at a premiere in Los Angeles later that same night.
Selena And Justin Are On A 'Break'?
Earlier this month, with rumors swirling in regard to their reported "break," Gomez left Los Angeles and Bieber and headed back home to Texas. However, just days later, she returned to the West Coast and got back to her regular routine of attending church and Bible studies in the area.
Gomez and Bieber began spending time with one another last October and appeared to be doing well up until earlier this month when several outlets began reporting on a supposed "break" between them. As for why they would allegedly be taking time apart, one particular source claimed to E! News that the couple's "break" was prompted by a feud over Bieber's birthday celebration earlier this month.
A Birthday Dispute May Have Led To Their 'Break'
"She wanted to have a quiet birthday celebration with Justin and he wanted to go big and involve all of his church friends," the source explained.
In the end, Bieber was seen hanging out with his male friends on his birthday and Gomez was nowhere to be seen.
They May Not Actually Be On A 'Break'
As rumors swirl about a "break," another report by Hollywood Life claimed Gomez and Bieber weren't on a break but instead had returned to their former ways of keeping their relationship low-key and meeting up in secretive ways.
“While they were very public for a short time, the attention became too straining on their relationship," the insider said. "As soon as Selena returned to L.A. from Texas this week, Justin made plans to meet up with her at the safest place for both of them — church.”
