Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are back together. Well, sort of.
At the very least, we know the former couple is entertaining the idea after a slew of appearances, fights and reunions since E! News exclusively reported that they've split up after nearly two years together.
Although neither has spoken publicly about the breakup, there have been plenty of telltale signs that the twosome aren't ready to permanently part ways.
Let's take a look at Justin and Selena's road to reconciliation, so all you Jelena fanatics (you too, Joel McHale!) can enjoy your Thanksgiving turkey without shedding any tears.
Nov. 9, 2012: E! News exclusively reports that Justin and Selena have gone their separate ways. "Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship," a source said of the split.
Nov. 10, 2012: Justin stays mum when asked about the breakup, but, during an interview with the Open House Party radio show, he admits that he "doesn't know what's going on" in his life.
Nov. 11, 2012: Despite refusing to comment on the reports, the Biebs covers Justin Timberlake's famous breakup ballad "Cry Me a River" during a concert in Boston. He also tweets thanks to fans for their continued support.
Nov. 12, 2012: Camp Gomez takes to Twitter! Selena's Wizards of Waverly Place costars post inspirational messages for the newly single starlet. BFF Demi Lovato also tweets support for her pal. Meanwhile, the Biebs continues to nurse his broken heart by returning to the studio and posing shirtless on Instagram. That night, Selena is all smiles in NYC as she stuns at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards Monday night.
Nov. 14, 2012: Selena flies to Texas to join pal Ryan Seacrest at the opening of Seacrest Studios at the Children's Medical Center of Dallas. "Today's the day! Opening
#seacreststudiosw/@ryanseacrest & @ryanfoundation at @childrenstheone. Such a great day!" the 20-year-old do-gooding star posts on Twitter. While Selena's down south, Justin is spotted hanging with Ashley Olsen in NYC and then riding his red Ducati in L.A. the next day.
Nov. 15, 2012: After rumors being to percolate that the duo split because of jealousy and trust issues, a photo surfaces of Selena smooching her Parental Guidance costar on-set. Although the costars are in character, the passionate pic is reported to be the catalyst for the breakup.
Nov. 15, 2012: Justin and Selena reunite for date night in Hollywood and hit up a show at the Laugh Factory Comedy Club. The twosome arrive in a van but are careful not to be photographed together.
Nov. 16, 2012: The rekindled couple is spotted dining together at a Japanese restaurant in the San Fernando Valley, but the evening was far from romantic. A source tells E! News that the duo stormed out of the restaurant just 10 minutes after sitting down, and Justin then followed his former GF to her home. The 18-year-old superstar was seen yelling outside the gate for his girl but left after causing a commotion with the paps. Something seems to have happened overnight, though, because the next morning, Justin's car was parked in Selena's driveway.
Nov. 17, 2012: Despite the ongoing Selena drama, Biebs is a "total pro" at rehearsals for the American Music Awards. Meanwhile, Selena sneaks in some quality girlfriend time with BFF Taylor Swift as the duo dine together Saturday night.
Nov. 18, 2012: Justin walks the red carpet for the AMAs with his mom, Pattie Mallette, and the mother-son duo look adorable as they posed for pics together. While accepting his award onstage for Favorite Rock/Pop Male artist, he thanks his mama for "always believing" in him. (Well played, Biebs.) Later that night, despite posing for paps sans Selena, Justin and his 20-year-old love are seen leaving the Nokia Theatre together hand-in-hand. A source tells E! News that Selena joined Justin post-show, and the two later attended an AMA after-party together at Bootsy Bellows in L.A. Our Jelena insider also reveals that the two stayed in a corner at the party and were "very loving" throughout the night as they hung with pals Scooter Braun, Psy and DJ Devin.
