Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez

Even when Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber aren't officially together, they kind of seem like they are. After all, those two always seem to find their way back to each other.

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.

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."
