How many great loves do we get in a lifetime — just one? HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Selena Gomez can’t seem to quit her first boyfriend Justin Bieber, whom she still considers her soul mate. Keep reading to hear why it’s so hard for her to move on.
Breakups are tough, but it’s even more heartbreaking to see the man you thought was “The One” hanging out with someone else, like Sofia Richie. It’s been four years since Selena Gomez, 24, and Justin Bieber, 22, officially split, but to the “Kill ‘Em With Kindsness” singer, it still feels like yesterday. “Selena wants to do whatever she can to cut her attachment to Justin,” tells a source EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “It’s difficult because she can’t understand why it’s been so easy for him to move on and so hard for her.”
Making matters even worse, Justin was flaunting his new flame Sofia Richie on Instagram (before deleting his account), which caused a HUGE scene with Selena and her good friend Hailey Baldwin. At the time, a lot of us were wondering, “Why is Selena getting involved?” Well, it’s because she still has feelings for Justin, and her good intentions to reach out to him were clouded with jealousy.
Still, getting over someone doesn’t just happen over night. They say the best way to move on is to start dating someone else, but that hasn’t worked out for the brunette beauty either. “She’s sworn a million times that she would just let it all go but dating other guys has been a little challenging,” continues the source, noting that she didn’t find her happy ending with Samuel Krost or Charlie Puth. “The problem is that she believed for so long that Justin was her soul mate, so she can’t seem to shake it.” Judging from Justin’s recent womanizing behavior with models like Jayde Pierce and Sahara Ray, Selena may only be hurting herself by wanting to reconnect.
