Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber: ‘She Has The Upper Hand’ In Renewed Relationship

Mon, July 13, 2015 4:36pm EDT by 13 Comments

Wow! Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez reunited at a Beverly Hills hotel on July 11, causing fans to buzz over them possibly renewing their relationship. If these two are back together, don’t expect Justin to walk over Selena ever again, as HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE as why she’s the one now calling the shots.

We are still in shock over Justin Bieber, 21, and Selena Gomez, 22, getting cozy together near the pool of the Montage Hotel. It seems these two just can’t stay away from each other. But they aren’t picking up where they left off. HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Selena is not the same woman Justin used to date and she now has the “upper hand” in this revived relationship!

“This time around, Selena calls the shots in her relationship with Justin,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. Justin and Selena were spotted hanging out near the pool of the Beverly Hills Hotel on July 11. These former lovers were completely relaxed around each other, a far cry from their messy Oct 2014 break-up, in DATE. Selena’s “at a different place in her life now,” continues the source. “She’s more confident, more empowered, and doesn’t make herself available at Justin’s beck and call. She definitely has the upper hand.” Good for Selena! To hear more about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!

While the “Good For You” singer hung out with the Biebs, does this mean they’re an item? Not so, as the insider tells HollywoodLife.com that Justin and Selena are “not exclusive” and that works for Selena. “She’s open to hanging out with different guys. That way she’s not so dependent on or obsessive with Justin,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com, adding that “If he can hang with other girls, than she can do the same. It’s her way of setting boundaries and protecting herself.” That strategy seems to be working. A day after Selena was relaxing by the pool with Justin, she had a lunch date with One Direction’s Niall Horan!

While Selena and Justin had some fun in the sun together, don’t expect to see them make any appearances in public just yet. Selena would prefer to keep things “on the down low, considering how many times she has complained about their relationship to her friends,” the insider tells HollywoodLife.com. “She just doesn’t want to be judged or feel like she has to explain herself.”

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez: Taylor Swift Disappointed They Reunited But ‘Over’ Interfering

Selena might have some explaining to do, whether she wants to or not. Taylor Swift has never been a fan of Justin. After Taylor found out about Selena hanging out with Justin, a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com “she gave the reaction that was basically full of disappointment. People around her are saying Taylor is showing a “what the f–k!?” type attitude.”

What do you think about Justin hanging out with Selena, HollywoodLifers? Do you think she has the upper hand and that things will be different between them?
