Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been zooming their fans on their relationship. New photos have surfaced showing the two kissing and cuddling on a yacht in tony St. Lucia, a celebrity playground in the Caribbean. Where were his parents?
Since Bieber is a minor, he would not have been able to rent a hotel room, let alone a yacht. Gasp! Does that mean he’s shacking up with Selena, a wearer of the purity ring?
And, who shelled out for the yacht?
The reports leave a lot of unanswered questions, but the photos, snapped by the bauergriffin photo agency are pretty convincing.
Justin, 16, and Selena, 18, couldn’t keep their hands off of each other while they spent time with friends celebrating the new year.
At one point, a shirtless Bieber seemed to lean in for a kiss as he sat on the deck with a bikini-clad Selena.
But the photo does NOT show them actually kissing.
Did she push him away in the next instant? Or did they lock lips?
If bauergriffen has the incriminating “kiss” photo, it hasn’t published it yet.
In another photo, Justin has his arm around Selena as they lean on the railing.
A similar photo shows Selena sitting behind Justin with her arms around him. It hardly looks like brotherly love.
But that’s how Selena described their relationship in several interviews after they were first spotted together looking affectionate during a concert in Philadelphia.
“We just like to hang out. They shouldn’t be stopping us from going out to dinner and things like that,” Gomez told People last month.
“She’s really cool. She’s an amazing person,” the Bieb told MTV. But he added: “I gotta’ keep some things to myself.”
If they are an item, they’ll have a jealous lover to contend with. Make that millions of jealous lovers.
Some of Bieber’s fans delivered major hate at Selena on Twitter.
One message read: “Roses are red, violets are blue, @selenagomez if you’ll break @justinbieber’s heart I’m gonna kill you.”
“I’ll kill you I swear on GOD!!!” another jealous fan wrote.
While a third threatened: “If you are the Girlfriend of Justin I will Kill you I HATE YOU :@ !!!”
And, they call it puppy love?
Ironically, the St. Lucia photo surfaced after reps for Bieber shot down another photo, purportedly of the two, that actually showed the kissing. It surfaced on the Internet Dec. 28.
Reps said the photo was fake and the couple picture was neither Bieber nor Gomez.
Still, E! News reported that the pair were seen hanging out in Miami and ordering room service together at the Gansevoort Hotel earlier in December.
Bieber was staying there using the name Chandler Bing, Matthew Perry’s character from the hit TV sitcom “Friends.”
They reportedly ordered some late-night food from on Dec. 18 at around 1 a.m, the site reported.
But Bieber was steadfastly maintaining his cover story on Twitter.
“Chillin and happy. Its been a fun year with a lot of blessings. Some crazy rumors but so much love and memories.
“We’rr just gettin’ started!! So enjoy the holidays. Get crazy and have some laughs. Life is too short. At least that is what they tell me.”
As for Selena, she was happily tweeting her upcoming performance.
“Guess what!? @selenagomez and the Scene will be performing live from the People Choice awards on Wednesday,” Gomez Twittered.
