Wondering why Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez actually split? Well, the latest word on the matter – courtesy of Life & Style magazine – is that Bieber cheated on Gomez with none other than Rihanna. According to L&S, Selena found out that Justin had strayed just moths into their relationship, back in 2011 and now Selena is questioning their entire relationship. If this is true it would certainly make sense of Gomez singing that cover of Justin Timberlake’s ‘Cry Me A River,’ recently, with lyrics like “You don't have to say, what you did / I already know, I found out from him / Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be.”

An insider spoke to the magazine and revealed that it may not just have been a one off indiscretion between Justin and Rihanna and that they spent time together in New York whilst they filmed the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “During breaks, they’d sneak away to the Hotel Giraffe… They were alone — their security made sure of it. Hotel staff blocked off the entire floor for them.” However, Justin’s rep has denied that anything physical happened between Justin Bieber and Rihanna.

It’s not been a good few weeks for Justin Bieber’s reputation. He’s been accused of smoking pot, being rude to his staff and being insensitive to the death of a paparazzi who died whilst chasing his car. Add to that the news that Selena may well have had a very good reason for walking away from their relationship and Bieber’s image is not looking so angelic anymore. He’d better hope that Rhi-Rhi’s boyfriend Chris Brown isn’t too unhappy about the news – he’s been pretty keen with his fists recently.
