Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have broken up yet again. The singers’ famously off and on again relationship seems to have broken off for good this time. This is due to the most popular reason for a tearful stormy break up: cheating. A source recently told HollywoodLife.com that Justin was hooking up with Kylie Jenner, formerly a good friend of Selena. According to the source, “For Kylie and Justin to hook up, it was all about feeding their egos only, they are so jaded that this is how they run their lives.” HollywoodLife.com also reports that Selena found out in the worst way possible. She had found sexy pictures of Kylie on Justin’s phone.
This is the ultimate betrayal. If Justin had manned up and told Selena what had happened, at least is would have showed some small regard for her feelings. The fact that he was actively hiding it from her, and presumably planned to continue the affair behind her back shows absolutely no consideration for her at all. It’s really impossible to say that nobody saw this coming, as there have been rumors in the past that Justin has strayed from his relationship, and he certainly hasn’t remained abstinent during the “off” portions of the relationship.
I certainly hope Selena doesn’t take him back this time. There is no excuse for cheating, and there should be no forgiveness for this level of callousness. Even if Selena won’t stay away from Justin for her own good, she should do it for her fans. As a celebrity, her personal life is common knowledge. If she walks back into her relationship after a betrayal this extreme, it sends a horrible message to her fans, male and female alike. Men will think that it’s all right to treat a relationship casually and carelessly because their significant other will come back to them anyway. Women learn that you should go back into a relationship this hurtful even though their boyfriends treat them horribly. It’s up to Selena to make an informed and intelligent decision about her own life, and become a good example for people everywhere.
