It’s been over a year since the last time Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber broke up.
We’ve lost count of just how many times Justin and Selena split over the years, and frankly, we imagine they have, as well.
These days, Selena is dating The Weeknd, and it looks as though Jelena is well and truly a thing of the past.
But don’t tell that to the millions of Justin fans who are still holding out hope for a reconciliation.
Yes, like the Robsten obsessives who refused to accept that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had broken up, there are thousands of social media users who maintain that Justin and Selena will find their way back to one another someday.
And for some reason, they’ve decided to target their frustrations at Selena’s personal assistant, Teresa Mingus.
Teresa posted a photo of Selena and The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) with a caption that drove Beliebers up a wall.
“In an industry that’s so hard to be loyal and love, these two made it happen,” Mingus wrote on the photo below:
We waded into the swamp of foolishness that is the comments section on the photo to share with you the most ridiculous pleas from the Jelena faithful:
“True Love always finds its way.”
“Love over promo. REAL love always wins.”
And of course, this gem which appears to have been posted by about a dozen different users:
“Never Say Never @SelenaGomez @JustinBieber”
There were many variations on the theme that Selena and Abel’s relationship is some kind of promotional stunt (as though either party needs the added press, or would stand to benefit from a fake relationship).
Most of these read along the lines of “Abelena is PR” or “Abelena is promo.”
You get the point. It’s basically the Jelena fan equivalent of calling everything you don’t like “fake news.”
And it’s equally dumb.
Look, folks, we live in the world of celebrity gossip.
We eat, sleep, and breathe this stuff, so we’re the last people to dismiss your emotional attachment to your favorite celebrity couples.
But to paraphrase Selena’s BFF, Bieber and Gomez are never, ever, ever getting back together – and that’s a good thing.
By all appearances and based on the accounts of those who knew them best, this was not healthy for either party.
Both Selena and Justin seem happier and more stable these days, so maybe just let that relationship rest in peace?
No? Gonna continue to obsess over a on-again, off-again romance that started when they were both in their teens?
You go ahead with that.
