Every relationship has its ups and downs. Justin and Selena had one emotional rollercoaster relationship. They were #RelationshipGoals for a lot of young fans when they first started to date. The fans nicknamed the couples, “Jelena.” But let’s be honest — their relationship was pretty toxic. Whenever everyone thought they had broken up, they posted pictures on their Instagram that showed otherwise. It happened for years until they finally called it quits in 2014. There were still rumors of them dating. It was definitely hard to keep up with their on-again, off-again relationship.
Breakups are hard, especially your first love and your first serious relationship. As with all devastating breakups, Justin and Selena did not take it well; but mostly Justin. The breakup took a huge toll on him. His erratic behavior got him in a lot of trouble, and even some Beliebers started to turn on him. He’s been out of control for years.
It’s possible that Selena ruined him in the love department. It’s pretty obvious when you take a look at the long list of his flings. They were over as soon as it hit the news, and he was on to the next one. Unfortunately for Justin, Selena found new love and is in a steady relationship with The Weeknd. Her career’s been thriving as well. She’s doing much better overall. Justin cancelled the remaining of his "Purpose" tour to sustain his career. Maybe it’ll work out for him or maybe it won’t.
