According to E! Online, the couple split “about a week ago,” due to their busy schedules.

“It was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship,” a source told the site.

their relationship in 2011 when they attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party together and shared several high-profile moments, including a red-carpet kiss at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards and a much-publicized date at Staples Center in Los Angeles, where Bieber rented out the venue and treated Gomez to a private screening of her favorite film, “Titanic.”

Of course, the relationship between Gomez and Bieber’s rabid fanbase was never quite as sunny. They frequently harassed her on Twitter and Facebook, and Gomez told New York radio station Z100 that those attacks “hurt … a lot.”

“It hurts, it really does,” she said. “I don’t feel like I’m doing anything wrong. I’ve been best friends with him for a very long time. It does hurt my feelings a lot, but I try not to focus on it.”

Biebs was spotted hanging out with Victoria’s Secret supermodel Barbara Palvin quite a few times in the past week.

There’s been no confirmation that the 19-year-old Hungarian beauty is more than just Bieber’s friend, but after the pair was spotted at a Broadway performance of The Lion Kingwith a group of people in New York City Thursday night, speculation arose that Bieber’s relationship with Gomez was no more.

“Lion king!,” Palvin tweeted Thursday, followed by, “hey everyone. please calm down. he is all yours!! 🙂 please :).”
