You can’t hide from us, Justin and Selena! The couple tried to stay out of the spotlight during the awards show on May 19, but the cameras were still able to catch the Biebs adorably whispering into Selena’s ear.
Turns out Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber sat next to each other at the Billboard Music Awards after all, if only for a brief moment. Though it seemed that the two ignored each other all night, one of ABC’s cameras was able to capture a sweet moment.
Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Cozy Up At Billboard Awards
Justin was seen leaning in towards Selena, whispering a few words. Maybe he was telling her how much he missed her and how annoyed he was that they had to play down their relationship in public.
Justin and Selena had been set to sit next to each other for the entire show, but that never actually transpired. Selena instead spent the night seated next to Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, and Justin’s seat was filled by Selena’s BFF, Charity Lynne Baroni.
We were initially a little worried that Justin and Selena’s reunion had hit a wall, but more and more it’s looking like they just didn’t want it to be in the spotlight, and wanted to keep the progress of their relationship under wraps.
Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Kiss Backstage At The Billboard Awards
Besides Justin being caught whispering sweet nothings to Selena in the front row of the audience, the couple was also spotted hugging and kissing behind the scenes backstage!
Justin and Selena were seen bumping into each other and Selena tenderly wrapped her arm around Justin’s neck and gave him a kiss on the cheek.
The Biebs then tried to bring Selena in for a kiss on the lips, but Selena resisted and playfully pinched his cheek.
So it seems the lack of Jelena love at the Billboard Music Awards may have been less a sign of trouble and more a case of Selena and Justin wanting to keep their relationship a little more private. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
