Justin Bieber is likely regretting fawning over Selena Gomez in an interview with Oprah Winfrey to air on "Oprah's Next Chapter" Sunday, November 25, days after Thanksgiving.
On Friday, E! reported that Bieber and Gomez ended their two-year romance; additional media outlets have since confirmed the split. Reports claim that the couple's grueling schedules are to blame for the break up. "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," one insider told Us Weekly. A rep for Bieber has not yet responded to Yahoo! Music's request for comment.

In a preview of the interview (which was conducted just a few weeks ago), Bieber gushes about Gomez and goes on to say how proud he is to be her boyfriend.
"I never make her separate from me [because] I don't want her to ever feel like I'm ashamed of her," Bieber told Winfrey. "I feel like a lot of guys do that, especially in the business. They don't want to be seen with the girl, so they'll make them ride in separate cars and do all that getaway stuff. ... We get away, we're getting away together."
Those quotes are just the ones that have been released - expect even more when the TV special airs. After all, Winfrey has called the interview the most in-depth chat the singer has ever done.
"Oprah's Next Chapter" interview premieres on Sunday, November 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, on OWN.
