If Selena ‘loves’ Justin and ‘believes’ in him, they will make it through the baby mama drama, relationship experts Steve Ward and his mother JoAnn tell HollywoodLife.com exclusively!
Justin Bieber has denied that he is the father of Mariah Yeater‘s baby — but she is still reportedly demanding that he take a paternity test. Despite all of the controversy, Justin’s girlfriend Selena Gomez seems to be sticking by his side. And, Selena will continue to stay with Justin as long as she trusts, believes, and loves him, Tough Love hosts and relationship experts Steve Ward and his mother JoAnn Ward tell HollywoodLife.com exclusively!
“If she trusts him and she believes him and it is the truth, then they’ll get through it,” JoAnn reveals to us. “If she cares about him that much and she says she loves him and believes him — the truth prevails. She’s going to stay with him.”
Steve thinks that Justin is telling the truth and is just being target because of his fame. “Of course he’s telling the truth,” says Steve. “It’s absurd. It’s very easy for people to come out and make up these ridiculous assertions. You have to expect stuff like this. If your relationship and your life is in the limelight … for all we know he hasn’t gone through puberty yet.”
“Just get a test,” advises JoAnn. “If you slept with her [Mariah], you slept with her. If it’s your baby, it’s your baby. That’s it.”
But even if Selena, 19, and Justin, 17, make it through this controversy, it’s unlikely their relationship will last for the long term. “I think he’s too young to be in a serious relationship anyway,” explains JoAnn. “I don’t think they’re even talking about that. They’re just dating. They are enjoying each other in a committed relationship, having fun. If they have an understanding and they’re dating each other, that’s what it is. They’re too young.”
“I don’t think either one of them expect it to last that long,” agrees Steve. “I think theyr’e just having fun, enjoying each others’ company, enjoying being young.”
