Justin Bieber has spoken for the first time about his alleged split from girlfriend of two years, Disney star Selena Gomez.
During a radio interview on 10 November, the Beauty and the Beat singer was asked about the supposed break-up and skirted around the question, commenting:
“I don’t know what to say. 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.”
Selena, 20, has kept a low profile since their alleged split, however 18-year-old Justin has already been linked to Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin, after they were spotted backstage at this year’s show.
Palvin and Bieber also attended a showing of The Lion King on Broadway on 8 November, the night after the Victoria’s Secret catwalk. Selena then tweeted a photograph of Justin with Palvin in the background, alongside the caption:
Palvin has since dismissed any relationship rumours, posting on her Twitter account:
“Last time I’m saying it. please calm down.there is nothing going on w him.i met him and did a pic w him. wouldn’t u do the same?:) #friendship.” [sic]
Reports emerged earlier this month that Bieber and Gomez had gone their separate ways, with an ‘insider’ telling US Weekly on 9 November:
“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… Selena definitely had some major trust issues with Justin.”
Justin and Selena first went public with their relationship in February 2011 at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.
