Gomez and Justin Bieber, who had a highly publicized on-again-off-again relationship, appeared to put any rumors of a dispute between them to rest when they posed for a cute picture at the Academy Museum Gala on Saturday.
In the image posted by photographer Tyrell Hampton, Gomez can be seen standing cheek to cheek with Bieber while sporting a stylish brown cutout dress. Gomez was dressed in a sharp black suit.
Hampton captioned the image, “Plot twist.”
On September 28, Bieber, who wed Justin in 2018, spoke candidly on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast about the accusation that she “stole” Justin from Gomez and the online abuse she has seen from fans. Bieber admitted to host Alex Cooper that she had been in touch with Gomez after she wed Justin and that there was no animosity between them.
“It’s all respect. It’s all love,” Bieber said. “That’s also why I feel like, if everybody on our side knows what happened and we’re good, and we could walk away from it with clarity and respect, then that’s fine.”
When asked if anyone ever approached Gomez to assist “put an end” to the criticism she experienced from the singer’s fans, Bieber replied that she had “no expectation” that Gomez would do so.
