You can rest easy now: Though Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's moms have yet to work things out, the couple seems to have weathered their feud and gone back to their usual tricks, which is to say attending bible class and going to Bieber's hockey games.
Lets recap this modern-day Romeo and Juliet forbidden love story. Since Gomez and her mom, Mandy Teefey, unfollowed each other on Instagram—and had such an animated discussion about Bieber that it reportedly sent Teefey to the hospital—Teefey has been vocal about her daughter's behavior. Earlier this month, she told Gossip Cop that she's "not happy" that Gomez is back together with Bieber, adding that "Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy."
But just a few days later, Teefey, spoke up again. Via an Instagram comment, she responded to users who were asking Gomez why she chose to work with Woody Allen on A Rainy Day in New York—a film that might not get released now that, decades later, Allen seems to actually be facing repercussions for his daughter Dylan Farrow's accusations that he assaulted her when she was a child—claiming that she "had a long talk with [Gomez] about not working with him and it didn’t click."
All the Famous Women Justin Bieber Has Been Spotted With Over the Years:
"Sorry, No one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to," Teefey continued. "No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears." Whether Bieber's mom, Pattie Mallette, heard those comments or not, she took it upon herself to at least address the more personal issue Teefey has been raising—the one involving her son. Perhaps hoping her words would get through to Teefey, Mallette, who's said she "loves" Gomez and has a "special bond" with her, took to Instagram to praise Bieber, calling him "an amazing young man" who is "maturing beautifully and wise beyond [his] years."
But enough with the drama! It's the new year, and Gomez and Bieber have finally returned to their favorite pastimes since they got back together at the end of 2017, a reunion that was in large part announced by Gomez attending Bieber's hockey game, leaning over to give him a kiss when he was on the ice and even donning his undoubtably sweaty hockey jersey. Though Bieber's been keeping busy with acting classes and selling his religious paintings, he got back on the rink in L.A. on Wednesday, with Gomez dutifully taking her place on the sidelines to cheer on her beau.
While Bieber was getting sweaty on the ice, Gomez stayed cool by eating some fro-yo as she watched the game, clutching a Gatorade when she joined Bieber, thankfully no longer in his hockey gear, in his car after the game. Of course, all that fun only came after the pair dutifully attended bible class together; after all, the pair reportedly got back on speaking terms in the first place because of their mutual religious beliefs.
All that should definitely be enough to put a rest to the breakup rumors that have surrounded the couple this month. And, to top it off, there's even more extremely subtle good news for the couple, too: Even after the couple made their public return, Teefey is now back to following her daughter on Instagram.
