- A new TMZ report says Justin Bieber visited Selena Gomez at her home Tuesday night.
- The visit was just friendly, but its the first time the pair have spent time together since their breakup in 2014.
- Fans had mixed reactions to the rekindled friendship.
- Some thought it was sweet, while others think Gomez is being opportunistic with her single coming out.
- Others still believed it was a nice sign that exes can be friends.
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber — whose tumultuous love story came to an end in 2014 — are rekindling their friendship, according to new reports from TMZ.
Bieber reportedly drove to Gomez’s house to hang out with other friends for an evening on Tuesday night. Gomez’s boyfriend, Abel Tesfaye (aka The Weeknd), is currently on tour and was not part of the group hangout.
Photos showing Gomez and her bodyguard entering her Los Angeles home were accompanied by more pictures of Justin Bieber’s white G-Wagon parked outside, and sources tell TMZ he entered the house and spent several hours inside with Gomez and other mutual friends.
Fans of both Gomez and Bieber had mixed reactions to the news. Is there a chance of romance between the exes? Is Gomez drumming up buzz for her new single dropping Wednesday? Or is this just a nice sign that exes can become friends again, given enough time?

“They’ve been talking — first reconnecting around the time Selena announced she’d undergone a kidney transplant … but it’s all copacetic,” TMZ reports.
Gomez told fans in 2015 that she was battling with the autoimmune disease Lupus, which has led to several health complications for the young singer and the eventual kidney transplant.
Gomez has been dating The Weeknd since January of this year, and they even reportedly moved in together. If she and Bieber are spending time together again, people shouldn’t get their hopes up of a #Jelena romance rekindling. It simply looks like Bieber’s latest single, “Friends,” was hinting more at his real life than fans had previously thought.
Representatives for Bieber and Gomez didn’t immediately respond to INSIDER’s requests for comment.
