Justin Bieber took home one of the most coveted moon men of the night at the MTV VMAs, but he didn’t give girlfriend, Selena Gomez one word of gratitude!

Uh oh…Is there trouble in paradise? Ever since Selena Gomez, 19, and 17-year-old Justin Bieber went public with their romantic relationship, they’ve basically been attached at the hip. They look to be totally in love, but jaws dropped when Justin didn’t include Selena in his acceptance speech at the MTV VMAs after winning Best Male Video for “U Smile.”

Even though Selena gave him a kiss on-camera and a standing ovation as he took the stage to accept his award, Justin only thanked God and his fellow nominees for the honor.

“I just want to say thank you so much. Not only to god, but to Jesus. Because I wouldn’t be here without him. He’s really blessed me. He’s put me in this position, so I want to say thank you so much. Also, I want to say thank you to all the other nominees. They were amazing. I’m a true fan of all of them, so I want to share this award with all of them. You guys are amazing!”

Sel and Justin weren’t an official couple when he did the video, but her unwavering loyalty, love and support for the pop-phenom since coupling up makes us think she deserved a shout out! Maybe it was jealousy over Selena’s presenting duties with ex-boyfriend Taylor Lautner, but no one is really sure why he decided to keep Selena separated from his speech. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the two!

Why do you think Justin left Selena out of his speech? Let us know in the comments!
