Justin Bieber, who?
Selena Gomez is having some fun in the sun in Australia, far away from her on-again, off-again flame. On Monday, the “Wolves” singer enjoyed downtime with pals on a yacht, cruising around Sydney Harbor. Gomez, 25, was photographed smiling wide and looking relaxed as she lounged in an orange and black bikini.
The singer appears happy and healthy just months after a nearly fatal complication following her kidney transplant. In September, Gomez — who has lupus — revealed she underwent surgery after her best friend, Francia Raisa, donated a kidney. Raisa recently told W that the actress nearly died after the procedure.
“A few hours after our surgery, I woke up and had a text from her that said, ‘I’m really scared,’” the 29-year-old Grown-ish actress shared. “My kidney was very active, and when it turned, I broke an artery. They had to take her into emergency surgery and get a vein from her leg and build a new artery to keep my kidney in place. … She could have died.”
Gomez is in Sydney for the Hillsong Colour Conference. She regularly attends church events with Bieber; however, he was noticeably absent from this getaway.
It’s been rumored that Bieber, 24, and Gomez are taking a step back from their relationship.
The pair rekindled their romance in October following the singer’s split with the Weeknd. Gomez even acknowledged her beau for the first time on social media, wishing Bieber a happy birthday earlier this month.
Days later, it was reported a fight (apparently over his birthday festivities) caused them to hit pause. However, a source cautioned this isn’t the last you’ve seen of Jelena, telling Yahoo Entertainment that they simply “are working through their issues like any normal couple.”
