Earlier this month, though, Selena confirmed she was single, telling NRJ radio that she still has "so much respect and love" for her on-off beau. Now, a source tells E! News that the 22-year-old singer-actress is "trying to put him [Justin] behind her," but that's easier said than done.
"It's hard because they have just so much history," says the source. "It is a process…"
Selena's relationship with the Biebs, 20, is indeed "up and down," says a source, noting that getting an occasional text from Justin can put a damper on her day.
Fortunately, though, Selena has a loving family and great group of friends—including BFF Taylor Swift —who are there to support her. Additionally, a source says she's "very active in her church" and maintaining her effort to surround herself with positive people.
No matter what Jelena's status is, though, Selena remains a Belieber. "I support him. I think I always will," she told Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show. "I'm upset when he's upset, I'm happy when he's happy. I don't want anything to ever happen to him bad. It hurts me. That's all."
