Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez breakup caused by fake news?

Bieber sends mixed messages

It looks like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez may have broke up because of fake media rumours.

This week, rumours about Bieber's alleged relationship with 19-year old Victoria Secret model Barbara Palvin went viral when pictures were released of the two looking 'cosy' on stage. Then many stories appeared that indicated he had a secret relationship with the young model, and that Selena had been "put to the side".

However several reports today suggest that Bieber was caught off guard:

According to TMZ, sources close to Bieber have said that he is not involved with anyone else. In an interview with E! News on Saturday Bieber said that :

“I don’t know what’s going on in my life with [Selena] now. To even assess that … it doesn’t make sense because I haven’t made any comment yet.”

Later on Twitter today, ahead of the EMA's it looked like Bieber was revealing yet another hint that about the breakup with Selena:


He seems genuinely sad that it's happened. It doesn't look like he's gloating or trying to push that breakup to the side. Is this a sign that Bieber is actually trying to fix this situation? With so much mis-information on the web, it's quite reasonable to see how Selena Gomez would have trust issues with their highly publicized relationship.
