Alas, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Are No MoreS

Let the haunting call of taps echo in every corner of our great nation this morning, for baby supercouple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have split after two years together. Selena is the one who dumped Justin, says a source. "She broke up with him about a week ago. With them being apart so much it got complicated. She had some trust issues. It's not easy, but the relationship needed to end."

What? Oh, the genesis of these rumors? Glad you asked! About eleven months ago, Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin threw some shade at Gomez's music in a YouTube video. Cut to earlier this month at a Victoria's Secret show, during which Bieber flirted with Palvin and posted pictures with her to his Twitter. Gomez retweeted one of them with the following caption: "..." Yikes. [TMZ, Selena Gomez Zone, Bossip]
