Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber put a quick and decisive end to rumors of a break up with a show of affection during the Teen Choice Awards last night (Aug. 8). They also got cozy backstage.
The evening didn’t start that way, when the two teen stars arrived at the awards show and walked the red carpet separately. But they were seated together and were appeared to be as close as ever.
They even shared a kiss for all the world to see.
Selena and Justin were also big winners on the night. Selena, 19, won Choice TV Actress and Choice Female Hottie.
Selena’s band, The Scene, won surfboard award for Choice Music Group and their songs “Who Says” and “Love You Like A Love Song.”
Justin won Male Hottie, Choice Twit, TV Villain for his role as troubled teen on “CSI,” Male Music Artist
Selena arrived at the show wearing a sexy ivory strapless dress. She posed with band members and lent support to Demi Lovato, clowning with her on the blue carpet.
Justin, wore a leather coat and bow tie posed with model Tyra Banks, but arrived alone.
Over the weekend, the couple were subject to rumors that they had broken up. TheImproper traced the rumors back to London’s Sun newspaper and a viral YouTube video.
The Sun claimed Gomez was furious with Justin because he was hanging around with rappers Chris Brown and Lil’ Wayne.
Both have criminal records, Brown for beating ex-girlfriend Rihanna and Wayne for illegally carrying a handgun.
Justin has collaborated on a song with Brown.
The viral YouTube video claimed that Selena broke up because she caught Justin texting with an ex-girlfriend.
The London tabloids, however, are notorious for making wild assertions in news articles.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt won a lawsuit against London’s News of the World last year for printing a story that they were about to break up.
Whatever they’re differences were, if any, they sent a clear message: their relationship is as strong as ever.
