A source close to Bieber confirmed the split to ET. "Nothing serious or dramatic happened. Just fizzled out."

It sounds like a very undramatic ending, compared to the drama-filled six weeks of the relationship. The "Cold Water" singer began palling around with Richie, then 17, in early August. The two were spotted hiking in Los Angeles before jetting off to Japan together, where Bieber played two shows. A few weeks later, they headed to Mexico for a romantic getaway to celebrate Richie's 18th birthday.

But it wasn't long before the Belieber backlash against the up-and-coming model prompted Bieber to threaten to delete his Instagram account. "I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand," the singer wrote, captioning a since-deleted photo of he and Richie together. "If you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like."

The drama gathered steam, there was a heated back and forth with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, and then Bieber made good on his threat and deleted the account.
