NEW YORK — A source confirms to The Associated Press that Justin Bieber is no longer Selena Gomez’s “Boyfriend.”
The breakup apparently happened last week, and distance and their busy schedules were cited as factors.
The 18-year-old “Boyfriend” singer is touring to promote his latest album, while 20-year-old Gomez is filming a “Wizards of Waverly Place” reunion for the Disney Channel.
The pair first stepped up publicly in February 2011. E! News was the first to report the split.
Bieber seems to be doing OK, at least publicly. On the red carpet of Wednesday’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show he said, “I’d rather be here than anywhere in the world.”
