The source continued, “She is in a good place. She has been hanging out with old friends and family and keeping herself out of the limelight and away from public places where she might feel bombarded or overwhelmed.”

The “Wolves” hitmaker and Bieber had an on-and-off again relationship for years with the most recent rekindling of that flame happening in 2017 after reports surfaced that the “Wizards of Waverly Place” star had split from singer, The Weekend. She and the “Baby” hitmaker were together for several months until news surfaced in the spring of last year that they had split again.

Several months later, Bieber announced that he and supermodel Hailey Baldwin were engaged. The two then made headlines in September of 2018 that they had secretly tied the knot at a New York City courthouse. One year later, the happy couple said their “I do’s,” once again, this times surrounded by family and friends on Monday in South Carolina.

As previously reported, Gomez took a break from social media last September. Soon after, reports surfaced that the singer had entered a treatment facility to deal with mental health issues. Recently, she opened up about the break and said it was necessary because she was “growing and changing.”
