Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber continue to break up and make up as their relationship progresses and a new report explains why exactly the actress keeps on going back to the pop star.
In December the Hollywood couple, who began dating in 2011, split after a fight in Mexico however they reconciled within weeks. While Gomez, 21, recently insisted that she is single, sources claim the singer is still secretly seeing Bieber.
"Let's be honest, she can't date a regular guy, so hooking up with Justin seems safe," a source told HollywoodLife.com.
The pair's recurring relationship woes initially began over alleged trust issues and in early July the former Disney star reportedly gave Bieber, 19, an ultimatum requiring him to straighten out his behavior in order to revive their relationship.
The "Beauty And A Beat" singer, who allegedly agreed to change his ways, has been embroiled in several scandals in recent months, however Gomez is rumored to have taken him back.
"She's very stubborn when it comes to Justin. She's got this idea that he's 'The One' for her and that they'll live happily ever after," a source said. "She's not ready to let go, and who knows, she could be right."
While Gomez and Bieber are said to be happy and currently in a good place in their on-and-off relationship, fans worry that the trust issues could again eventually tear them apart.
"The problem in the first place is that Selena was a little bit of a jealous girlfriend and Justin wasn't really taking her feelings into regard," a source close to the stars previously told Radar Online.
"Justin doesn't see texting other girls as cheating, but he's promised Selena he'll stop if she takes him back," the source added.
On July 22 Gomez celebrated her 21st birthday with friends and family and although Bieber was not there, the actress received a birthday cake with his face on it.
"She loves Justin so he went on the cake!" a source explained about the cake.
