A source had told E! News this week that the on-again, off-again couple is back together. They had sparked rumors of a reconciliation last week when Bieber tweeted (and then deleted) a photo of the two appearing cozy. Days later, they were spotted leaving a recording studio together in Bieber's blue Ferrari. On Wednesday, they attended a Bible study together.
Gomez, 21, and the fellow pop star were spotted together again in the Los Angeles area on Friday, June 20. They were photographed outside Mastro's steakhouse in Beverly Hills (see above) and fans posted on Instagrama video of the two, dressed in the same outfits and accompanied by security guards, walking inside a movie theater. At one point, Gomez puts her hand on Bieber's back.
Gomez wore a black crop top and yellow printed maxi skirt, covered by a long, black cardigan and paired with black stilettos. Bieber sported sunglasses, a white, collarless jacket over a black shirt and pants, white sneakers and a white hat.
A source close to Gomez told E! News on Saturday that the singer has taken Bieber back and had decided while she was overseas that she would give him another chance—"on her terms." She was reluctant about it and her family had for a while urged her not to get back together with him, the source said, adding that the singer also eventually decided she didn't want to be single this summer.
Bieber and Gomez have been photographed at the Beverly Hills restaurant in the past. On Friday night, Bieber shared on his Twitter page a photo of himself raising a wine glass (of what appears to be water).
"Cheers," he said.
