Justin Bieber was recently seen cozying up to a woman named Baskin Champion (greatest name of all time), and apparently their night out was part of a highly petty attempt to make Selena Gomez jealous while she chills on a yacht in Australia.
Per a source who spoke to ET, Justin “knows everything he’s doing is going to get out,” and his time with Baskin was to prove a point. “[Selena is] off having fun with her friends and so he’s showing that he can still go out and have fun too,” the source says. “And to be honest, I’m sure there’s a part of him that wants to make Selena a bit jealous! This seems like right out of the old Justin’s textbook! He was very manipulative with her emotions the last time and did stuff like this a lot.”
So, is Justin on his way to becoming Mr. Baskin Champion? NAH. Apparently they’ve been buddies for a while, know each other through mutual friends, and their relationship consists of “nothing more” than flirting. And, like, randomly going to Craig David concerts together as if it’s 1999.
The source also says that Selena and Justin are still dating, but Selena doesn’t have the “time or energy to be all about Justin 100 percent of the time.” That said, “She does care about him a lot, but she just can’t be all in right now”—partially thanks to her friends encouraging her to concentrate on herself. “They think he’s a bad influence on her and she becomes really dependent on him,” the source says. “She’s so generous and loyal and puts 100 percent of herself into everything, including her relationships, which isn’t always the healthiest.”
Fair, but how can Justin Bieber, man who once rejected his pet monkey, be a bad influence on anyone?
