Over the weekend, the news that pop’s preeminent power couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had split shook up the celebrity news cycle. Fans seemed pretty devastated about the breakup as both singers tried to keep it business as usual.
Shortly after the news went viral, both Bieber and Gomez touched down in NYC over the weekend. The performers are in town for work purposes; Bieber has a show at the Barclays Center on Monday night and Gomez will be honored at a Glamour magazine event that same night in Manhattan. But, according to sources they made some time for one another in between engagements. On Sunday, the former couple crossed paths at her Big Apple hotel.
“I saw Selena go into the hotel around 5:40 p.m. and not even three hours later, Justin went in,” a source told Life & Style about the rumored reunion. “I saw him leave around 11 p.m.”
Earlier that day, she hit up a Kmart event in White Plains on Sunday and thanked her fans for their support afterwards: “Thank you everyone who came out to Kmart today. Such a warm welcome to my first visit to White Plains. Love you all.”
Also on Sunday, Bieber was in the studio, in between gigs on his Believe Tour. He posted a photo of himself to his Instagram account with the caption, “studiolife.”
While the news officially broke late Friday, the pair had reportedly split one week before. A source told E! News that busy schedules were a cause for the split. However break-up rumors had previously persisted when Bieber was spotted at a performance of “The Lion King” with a group that included 19-year-old Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin. Gomez seemed to comment on that rumor when she tweeted out a photo of Bieber, Palvin and Lil Twist on November 9 with a caption that simply read “…”
For her part, Palvin has denied anything romantic happened between her and Bieber. She denied the rumors on her Twitter account, “last time im saying it. please calm down.there is nothing going on w him.i met him and did a pic w him. wouldnt u do the same?:)#friendship.”
On Saturday, the same day he danced around the break-up report in a radio interview with Open House Party, he took the stage in Boston on Saturday night and played the classic Justin Timberlake break-up track, “Cry Me A River.”
“#grateful #smiling. thank you. alot of thoughts. but it is always us. thank you thank you thank you. love u we will never stop. thank you for believing in me. making me believe in myself. and knowing that WE win…OUR ALBUM. OUR SUCCESS. OUR SMILES,” he wrote on Twitter. “i love u. #beliebers.”

Justin Bieber is just keeping ‘em guessing.
Though multiple sources confirmed to Us Weekly Nov. 9 that the pop superstar and his singer-actress girlfriend of two years, Selena Gomez, called it quits, Bieber kept mum on the subject, skirting breakup talk in a new interview with Open House Party Nov. 10.
“I don’t know what to say,” Bieber, 18, told Open House Party radio host John Garabedian in an interview Saturday, neither confirming nor denying news of the breakup. “I don’t know what’s going on in my life . . . To even assess that it doesn’t make sense ’cause I have not made any comment.”
Performing in Boston Saturday night on his “Believe” concert tour, Bieber took to Twitter after the show to thank fans for their support during his trying time.
“Thank you Boston. Focused on the positive. #30MillionBeliebers with me. I’m never leaving you because you are always there for me.”
Gomez, meanwhile, has maintained a low profile since their Oct. 31 breakup, hopping a plane from LAX to New York Nov. 10 after wrapping production on her Disney series Wizards of Waverly Place.
Taking their romance public in February 2011 at the Vanity Fair Oscar party, the couple long dodged breakup rumors throughout their courtship while Gomez, 20, faced backlash from Bieber’s adoring fans on the Internet. Finally, Gomez decided to pull the plug on her romance with Bieber.
“Selena broke up with Justin about a week ago. It’s been a really challenging experience over the last year because of their crazy schedules,” an insider told Us on Nov. 9. “Selena definitely had some major trust issues with Justin.”

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have gone their separate ways.
They broke up about a week ago, a source exclusively tells E! News.
“Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship,” the source says.
Rumors that the adorable twosome had split started gaining traction in the last couple of weeks, but hit a high note just last night when Bieber, 18, was spotted seeing The Lion King on Broadway with a group of people that included 19-year-old Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin.
Gomez, 20, and the Biebs went public with their romance in February 2011 when they attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party together.
“I am happy,” she told us a few months later about their romance. “I’m really happy.”
No surprise, but many rabid Bieber fans have had it in for Gomez since day one, frequently attacking her via the Internet.
“It hurts, it really does,” she once told Z100 radio in NYC. “I don’t feel like I’m doing anything wrong. I’ve been best friends with him for a very long time. It does hurt my feelings a lot, but I try not to focus on it.”
Here’s hoping they can still be friends.
