Former lovebirds Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are hanging out again – and apparently it’s no big deal.
The 2 superstars, who dated on and off for about 3 years, have been spotted hanging out multiple times over the last couple of weeks. Apparently, their friendship rekindled after Selena Gomez underwent kidney transplant surgery back in May.

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

According to reports, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been seen together at her Los Angeles home, and they were also spotted having breakfast together at the JOi Cafe in Westlake Village in California.
However, the 2 maintain that they are strictly friends and nothing more, as Selena is still happily dating her boyfriend, The Weeknd. Sources say that she is merely trying to reconnect with old friends, especially in light of recovering from her health issues.
A inside source also confirmed with Entertainment Tonight that there is nothing romantic happening between the 2 former lovers. “Selena is still with The Weeknd, and she only sees Justin as a friend. They are not dating, it’s nothing romantic. Justin and Selena are just friends right now. They reconnected and, right now, Justin wants to be a good friend to her,” the source said.
Furthermore, Selena’s beau The Weeknd – who is currently on tour – is totally okay with the two hanging out, according to another source. “The Weeknd is well aware Selena and Justin are talking. The Weeknd doesn’t think Selena talking to Justin again is weird at all. He doesn’t care.” the source revealed. “She (Selena) is very honest and open with The Weeknd about Justin.”
