Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber Get Cozy Poolside In Pre-Valentine Vacation
On again, off again couple Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber must have a busy Valentine's Day planned — they just took a vacation in anticipation of it.
Love's Young Dream
The young couple was spotted relaxing by a poolside at a hotel in the exclusive beach community of Laguna Beach, CA scene of the hit MTV reality show Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County.
Bieber, 23, and Gomez, 25, were spotted lounging around and enjoying each other's company at the Montage hotel on Sunday. With just a couple days to go before V-Day, it's likely they were taking a pre-holiday romantic trip together.
The two seemed casual, low-key, and were reportedly left alone for much of their stay. They chilled out under an umbrella for a while before taking a quiet stroll around the property.
Bieber reportedly planned the trip in advance, so he could spend some quality time with Gomez. The two reunited late last year after several years apart.
"Justin is on his way out of town and he invited Selena Gomez to join him for a intimate getaway. Justin has left LA for some fun on a spiritual retreat, and he is hoping Selena will join him for a pre-Valentine's vacation together," a source told Hollywood life. "His plan is to stay at a secret location, at a luxury resort, a few hours outside of Los Angeles for at least a few nights and he's hoping she will break away from her busy schedule to join him for some romantic time alone."
It's possible Bieber and Gomez might actually be spending the most romantic day of the year apart, judging by their grueling work schedules. Gomez is rumored to be traveling to New York on Tuesday for Coach's Fashion Week show.
Making The Most Of Their Time Together
Fans initially speculated that Bieber might be joining her after they were spotted driving near LAX on Saturday, but it seems they were just en route to the OC. Justin was spotted playing a game of ice hockey the night before while the couple also attended a church service together last Wednesday.
The recent reunion of "Jelena" came to the delight of fans who were hoping the two would get back together eventually. However, Gomez's mother, Mandy Teefey, is reportedly not too pleased that her daughter is back with bad boy Bieber who she sees as a bad influence to Gomez.
The two dated on and off until 2014 before reconciling last year. Gomez's mom was quoted in an interview as saying she was not happy about the two getting back together, but that she supports her daughter regardless.
Her mother is equally unimpressed with Gomez's continued work with disgraced filmmaker Woody Allen, although, she acknowledges Gomez is an adult and can do whatever she wants.
