So this happened! Justin Bieber has finally split with Sofia Richie. The break-up news comes soon after Sofia opened up about her ‘special relationship’ with Justin where she said, “We have a special relationship. Justin is very easy to talk to, and that’s hard to find with people in Los Angeles.” While both parties have remained silent in regard to the split so far, a source on Tuesday suggested Bieber had simply missed the joys of living the single life. “Justin Bieber, 22, loves dating, and occasionally a girl will grab his eye for a brief moment, but then he finds himself missing the benefits of bachelorhood,” a source explained to Hollywood Life of the split on September 20. “One thing that was different with Sofia Richie, 18, is that Justin thought was she was really cool.”
Another source in interaction with E! News added, “They were never officially together, but more casual hanging out and having fun. It was super-hot and heavy, and because Justin doesn’t want a relationship right now, he wanted to cool things down… it wasn’t an intentional cool-off… [it] just sort of happened on its own.”
Meanwhile, Sofia was dragged into a spat between Justin and his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez when the 22-year-old singer threatened to quit Instagram if people didn’t stop sending Sofia hate.
He wrote at the time,“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like (sic).” But Selena quickly fired back, “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol — it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you (sic).” After seeing her comments, Justin got embroiled in a war of words with Selena, where he accused her of using him. He wrote, “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers (sic).”
However, things seemed to eventually cool down between the pair as Selena later admitted that “what she said was selfish and pointless.” We wonder what will Selena have to say in response to this split which has so quickly gone from sizzle to fizzle….
