There could be trouble in paradise for “it” couple Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber.
According to Radar Online, a source says that the 20-year-old actress and singer is only staying with him because he is "good for her brand."
Meanwhile, Oprah released a preview clip on Thursday morning’s "Good Morning America" of an interview she did with Beiber. In the clip, the 18-year-old discusses his relationship with Gomez.
“We just sometimes … we gotta take back exits," he said. "I never make [Selena] separate from me because I don’t want her to ever feel like I’m ashamed of her. Because I feel like a lot of guys do that, especially in the business.
"They don’t want to be seen with the girl, so they’ll make them ride in separate cars. They’ll do that ‘get away’ stuff. [Selena and I] get away we’re… you know … getting away together,” Bieber told Oprah in a preview of his Oprah’s "Next Chapter" interview.
While is sounds like Bieber is still happily in relationship bliss with Gomez, a friend close to the couple revealed that "Selena and Justin's relationship isn't the fairy tale romance they'd like their fans to believe it is.
“Dating Justin is good for Selena's brand. Together they're a brand!" the source explained. "Everyone in Selena's camp is aware of Justin's star power and is urging her to make it work with him.
Let's just say that if for some reason Justin's star ever fell, Selena would drop him immediately," the source went on to say.
There is no doubt that Bieber has serious star power. He has nearly 30 million followers on twitter, and his latest music video, ‘Beauty and the Beat, broke the VEVO record for most views in 24 hours with over 24 million viewers. Bieber is also the first person to reach 3 billion views on YouTube.
