Justin Bieber recently reunited with Yovanna Ventura amid claims of relationship woes with Selena Gomez.

The "Confident" singer, 20, was photographed leaving the Il Pastaio restaurant in Los Angeles on Tuesday following a lunch date with Ventura, 18, and the pair appeared to be in good spirits. Both Bieber and the teenage model shared photos of their private time together on social networking sites Shots and Instagram and fans are speculating whether they could be more than friends.

"Sweetest guy ever @justinbieber (via @shots)," Ventura captioned alongside a photo herself leaning into Bieber.

"All better with a smile (via @shots)," she wrote in another photo.


Bieber, who reportedly had a fight with Gomez last month, also shared affectionate photos of Ventura. In one photo, the model has her hands casually placed inside the singer's shirt and in others she has her arm around him.

"Sleepy," Bieber captioned in his own photo of Ventura.

In May, the pair sparked romance rumors after they were photographed enjoying a fun day out at the famous Venice Beach, California. However at the time sources claimed Bieber was only spending time with Ventura to annoy Gomez, his on-and-off girlfriend.

"Justin is just trying to make Selena jealous by hanging out with Yovanna," a source said previously according to ShowBiz Spy.

In April, Bieber and Gomez, who have dated on-and-off since 2011, split after a reported fight at Coachella, however, they reconciled weeks later. In June, they were photographed on a series of romantic dates which appeared to confirm their rekindled romance, but in recent days they reportedly split again after another fight about trust.

"[The fight] was over other girls, she found out Justin is still talking to a lot of other girls when he promised to stop," an insider told HollywoodLife.com.

"Chantel Jeffries was one of them and Miley Cyrus. Selena totally believed Justin, so when she found out he wasn't being totally honest she freaked out on him," the source said.
