Justin Bieber was recently linked to Katherine Gazda however the aspiring singer denied romance rumors and insiders claims he is actually still in love with Selena Gomez.
On Sunday a report claimed Bieber, 19, and Gazda, 18, were in a secret relationship, but the songwriter dismissed the rumors via social networking site Twitter. Bieber has been photographed with model Chantel Jeffries in recent weeks and while the pair is said to be dating, sources claim he still has strong feelings for Gomez, his ex-girlfriend.
"I'm a #Belieber & it's an honour to have my name next to @justinbieber but it's all a LIE! I never even net him!!SHAME on who made it up!!!" Gazda tweeted to her 242,000 followers adding, "PLEASE DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ!!"
Fans were shocked when the secret romance rumors surfaced on Feb. 9 as many had assumed he was only involved with Jeffries, 19. A U.K. tabloid quoted a source as saying the pair began dating after introduced by mutual friend rapper Blake Kelly, but this is false.
"They hit it off straight away and are both really serious about one another," a source told the Sunday Mirror U.K.
The "Confident" singer was photographed with Jeffries before and after his Jan. 23 arrest and more recently, last week inside an Atlanta nightclub. While he is said to be enjoying the model's company, an insider insists he is not quite over Gomez, 21.
"Justin is partying away the pain right now. Chantel means absolutely nothing to him. Selena is the only girl he has ever had feelings for," a source told HollywoodLife.com. "He's acting all tough, saying he's totally over her but it's obvious that he's in a lot of pain over this."
Gomez and Bieber dated for three years before they split last year and while they sparked reconciliation rumors in early January, the "Come And Get it" singer reportedly distanced herself in the wake of his legal woes.
The former Disney star is reportedly still in love with Bieber and struggling after seeing various photographs of him with Jeffries.
"She hates that she is with him and thinks it should be her," a source said of how Gomez feels about Jeffries. "But she knows Justin is steering the ship and instead of Selena being along for the ride, it's Chantel."
