Selena Gomez is dating Justin Bieber, but a source close to the couple claims it’s become more of a business deal than a romance and exclusively tellsRadarOnline.com that the Disney star is just sticking it out with Justin because he’s “good for her brand.”
“Selena and Justin’s relationship isn’t the fairytale romance they’d like their fans to believe it is,” a pal close to the couple told RadarOnline.com.
“Justin’s heart is with Selena because she’s his first true love, but Selena is pretty much just riding out the relationship because she knows he’s good for her image.”
And it’s not just Selena who recognizes what dating Justin is doing for her — her entire team is pushing her to stay with him because of the opportunities it’s given her career.
“Dating Justin is good for Selena’s brand. Together they’re a brand!” the source explained. “Everyone in Selena’s camp is aware of Justin’s star power and is urging her to make it work with him.”
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported on Wednesday, the young couple has been on the rocks recently and “almost break up regularly.”
“Let’s just say that if for some reason Justin’s star ever fell, Selena would drop him immediately,” the source said.
Ok, so, mixed feelings. On one hand, Justin Bieber is an annoying little douchebag, and we’ve heard countless rumors about how poorly he treats Selena. So if she’s just using him for her own gain, then good on her, right? But on the other hand, no, that’s not right. Because this makes it sounds like Justin Bieber is a total jackass, but he’s a total jackass because he’s an 18-year-old boy who doesn’t know any better, and that he’s a jackass who really loves his girlfriend. And if Selena is just using him for her own gain, then that’s actually kind of sad.
I don’t know, I have a lot of feelings. What do you guys think?
