Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez are reportedly feuding over the singer's on-and-off relationship with Justin Bieber following reports claiming Gomez and Bieber are still together despite their split.
In April Gomez, 20, allegedly ended her two-year relationship with Bieber, 19, due to ongoing trust issues, however, the pair reportedly reconciled in July. While the former Disney star recently insisted that she is single, sources claim she and Bieber are still seeing each other in secret and the pair's casual romance is said to be causing a rift between Gomez and Swift, 23.
"Taylor hates him. She thinks Selena makes a mistake every time she reconciles with him," a source told Us Weekly magazine. "Bieber has really come between the girls."
In July, Bieber and Gomez were photographed spending quality time together during Independence day celebrations and Swift was reportedly upset after seeing the intimate photos. Gomez, who is said to still love Bieber, was reportedly left devastated in early 2013 when the "Heartbreaker" singer was linked to a Victoria secret model and her friends, including Swift, were left to console the actress.
"Taylor absolutely hates the fact that Selena and Justin are hanging out again and looking like they are getting back together," a source previously told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. "She feels she is going to get hurt and run back to Taylor when things get bad again. She is ready to say, 'I told you so.'"
In July Gomez celebrated her 21st birthday with close family and friends and while Bieber was present, Swift was noticeably absent.
"She's not going to want to be there if Justin is there, it's so awkward between them now," a insider previously revealed before the event.
The pop singer and Bieber initially split in December following claims that Gomez had difficulty trusting him.
"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 told RadarOnline.com. "Justin doesn't see texting other girls as cheating, but he's promised Selena he'll stop if she takes him back."
