Taylor Swift is not feuding with Selena Gomez over Selena’s rekindled relationship with Justin Bieber. Reports to that effect are just more tabloid hype.

Swift, 24, may not think much of Bieber because of his juvenile antics and the way he’s treated Selena.

But she’s hardly broken off her relationship with Selena. Reps say there is no truth to the reports.

The latest report in HollywoodLife claims Taylor and Selena are “taking a break” from each other, as always, citing an anonymous “source.”

In fact, Swift has never said anything–good, or bad–about Justin publicly. She’s only expressed her feelings about the 20-year-old singer once in May a year ago at the Billboard Music Awards.

And even that could be interpreted in several ways.

The situation unfolded when she and Selena had a backstage encounter with Justin. He leaned in for a kiss from Selena, but she deftly turned her head and kissed him on the cheek instead of the lips.

Swift looked on smiling as they embraced, but she winced, wrinkled her nose and stuck out her tongue when they kissed, according to a video of the incident.

That single act is the only verifiable basis for reports that Swift doesn’t like Justin. Anything beyond that is tabloid conjecture, or fabrication.

The latest round of speculation was touched off when Selena and Justin were spotted together again in Texas earlier this month.

Justin, who can use a photo opportunity after his recent run of arrests, published a video online earlier this week, showing them working on a sexy dance routine together.

Is it love or a publicity stunt? It’s hard to tell, but a sketchy tabloid is sure to come up with an answer from another anonymous source. Believe It?
