Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back

Gomez and Bieber get cosy

LOS ANGELES - Speculation mounts that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may have got back together after an intimate picture of the two goes viral.

Released on Instagram on Saturday morning. Bieber posted a pic of him looking up toward his phone with Selena Gomez affectionately hugging him with her eyes closed. The picture certainly gives fans a big clue as to how well they are getting on.

Is this a New Year's comeback for the celebrity couple? Just over a year ago, they were the most powerful online couple with a huge online following of fans, but since the breakup both artists have been working apart, and making their own headlines.

Gomez recently cancelled her tours in Asia and Australia to spend more time on her private life. After a roller-coaster year, Christmas was going to be quiet for Gomez, or that's what we thought at least.

On the hand, Bieber announced that he would retire just a day before his documentary film 'Believe' was to be released. It proved to be a hoax, but unfortunately the film's opening on Christmas Day didn't get a big attendance, and struggled to get over $1 million nationwide. Despite that, fans were overall, positive about the film.

Bieber's picture on Instagram with Selena was greeted with delight as thousands of fans commented on it the minute it went live. The post as so far received over 1 million likes.

People Magazine reports how the couple were seen together on Segways just 2 days ago.
