More About Jelena’s Not-So-Surprising Reunion
The two former lovebirds were caught together for the first time in months at Hillsong Church on May 24. How did the news break about this reunion? Well, Rich Wilkerson Jr, Hillsong’s preacher, actually took a Snapchat story that showed the two together. As we previously reported, it seems their pastors are on board.
“[Justin and Selena’s] pastors are pretty much all married and they married very young. They are very pro-marriage and pro-family and the feeling in that group is that Justin and Selena belong together. Justin has said many many times that he believes Selena is his soul mate, and that isn’t something his pastors take lightly. He has never said anything close about anyone else and Selena has said the same thing in the past. These are his counselors, the people he bares his heart to, and Selena has done the same, so maybe they know best,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
