Did Justin Bieber’s declaration of love to Selena Gomez make things totally awkward between them? Not a chance! The two are becoming closer than ever after that sweet gesture, enough to make Selena reach out to her former flame.
Selena Gomez, 23, was so moved when she heard that Justin Bieber, 21, talked about her on Access Hollywood November 3, that she immediately texted him. Don’t think that Justin saying that he’ll always love his ex will make things weird between them; it’s going to make their bond even stronger!

“After Selena heard the interview, she texted Justin a thumbs up emoji and a wink,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “His confession won’t make things more awkward between them. In fact, it has kind of broken the ice between them.”
Justin confirmed what we’ve been dying to know: “a lot” of his soon to be released album, Purpose, is about Selena. It’s been rough for the “What Do You Mean?” singer to deal since their heartbreaking split. “It was really tough, I don’t know if I’m still over it yet,” he told Access Hollywood. “I think that I’m definitely in another place, and I think we’ve definitely went our separate ways. I love her and I want her to be awesome, but there are things that remind me of her.”
Good for him! It’s brave to put your feelings out there, especially on such a public platform, where your ex is definitely going to hear about it. Justin went further, and added that Selena is “someone I love dearly. I’m never going to stop loving her, I’m never going to stop checking in on her.” How romantic!
Justin clearly got the Selena seal of approval if her texting is any indication. The ice is officially broken — was it melted by their reignited flame? “At first, Selena was a bit surprised that Justin was so open about his feelings for her in public,” our EXCLUSIVE source said. “The fact that he’s so ok with letting the world know how he feels about her makes her really happy and kind of giddy. She says she finds the whole thing very flattering.” We would too!
