Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may have been forced to celebrate Christmas apart but when it comes to the upcoming New Year's holiday, they are reportedly planning to enjoy time together.
As rumors of Gomez's feud with her family continue, the 25-year-old "Wolves" singer is looking forward to returning to Los Angeles from Texas to celebrate New Year's Eve and New Year's Day with her main squeeze.
“Selena and Justin are going to be spending Christmas apart, but they’re planing to be together to see in the new year,” a source close to Gomez revealed to Hollywood Life on Dec. 24.
As fans have likely heard, Gomez and her family, including her mother Mandy Teefy, are currently at odds due to her recent reunion with Bieber. While the singer hopes her mother will soon give her boyfriend another chance, she hasn't done any such thing quite yet.
“Selena gets why her mom has so many reservations about her seeing Justin again, but she just wishes Mandy would trust her judgment and give him a break. She’s upset, but totally not phased by her family’s disapproval though, if anything it makes her all the more determined to make it work out with Justin to prove them wrong," the insider continued.
As the source explained, Gomez can be stubborn at times and believed she knows what is best for herself, even more so than her family. At this point in time, however, Gomez believes that she needs Bieber and when it comes to their current relationship, he is making her quite happy. There’s no way she’s going to walk away from their latest go-around.
Gomez and Bieber began dating in 2010 and they continued to date exclusively for two years. Since then, they have been on and off.
Earlier this year, Gomez appeared to be done with Bieber when she embarked on a new romance with musician The Weeknd. However, after enjoying a number of trips abroad with the singer, including visits to Brazil, Italy, and Amsterdam, the couple called it quits.
Around the time of Gomez's split from The Weeknd, Bieber was caught entering and leaving her Studio City home and weeks later, the couple's reunion was confirmed with photos of the two of them kissing at an ice rink nearby.
