Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's break-up is getting so prolonged and dramatic, you'd think they were teenagers or something! Bieber, 18, and Gomez, who turned 20 in July, tried to have a friendly dinner together after reportedly splitting up last week. It might have been the start of a reconciliation -- but instead, the date ended with Gomez storming angrily out of the restaurant, then locking Bieber out of her house.
The disastrous dinner date occurred at a Japanese restaurant in the San Fernando Valley on Friday. According to E! News, the two pop stars arrived in separate cars, and left shortly afterwards. "Something must have happened inside the restaurant, because 10 minutes after he arrived, they both stormed out looking stone-faced," said the source. "They were very serious and did not look happy at all. She got in her car, and Justin got into his. Selena drove off and Justin just sat there for a few minutes. I think he was waiting for her to calm down."
A witness at the restaurant told HollywoodLife.com that he saw the fight go down. "All of a sudden someone was yelling and I was like how embarrassing to have a fight in public," the witness told the website. "Then I realized it was Selena Gomez and she was having a fight with Justin Bieber. She was so mad she was crying and just stormed out of the restaurant. Justin followed behind her and looked upset. He looked kind of shocked like ‘what just happened?’ I felt really really sorry for them.”
Afterwards, Bieber reportedly drove to his ex-girlfriend's house, but didn't get past the gate. After trying the buzzer a few times, the singer got out of his car, went up to the gate, and started yelling "Selena!"
"It was at this point [Justin] started to yell at the paps," said E!'s source (who would appear to be a paparazzo himself). "He was obviously annoyed that they were there and witnessing everything. He was mad. Selena then came out, because there was such a commotion, he got in his car and left."
At some point, however, Gomez relented; Bieber's white Ferrari was spotted pulling out of her driveway on Saturday morning, suggesting that he may have spent the night.
A cryptic message tweeted by Justin may hint at what happened between him and Selena. "Things arent always easy. there is alot of pressure," he wrote early on Saturday morning. "im figuring it all out. im trying. but i care, i notice, i still hear u. #Beliebers"
The pair spent the rest of the weekend apart. On Saturday, Gomez was spotted having a girls-only dinner at an L.A. eatery with her best friend Taylor Swift, while Bieber rehearsed for Sunday's performance at the American Music Awards. "He was totally professional," a source on the set told E! News. We wonder if this is the end for Selena and Justin -- or if this is just the beginning of an endless make-up-and-break-up cycle. Neither of them really went to high school, so maybe they're just making up for lost time!
