Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are back together once again, a new rumor alleges, and the unlikely catalyst was the former's recent racism controversy.
According to a source close to Gomez, Justin reached out to her after he came under fire for his two shocking n-word videos, seeking emotional support.
The insider claims Bieber told his ex that he "needed her by his side" and his heartfelt words sent her flying to Canada on a private jet last weekend.
“Justin reached out to Selena when he was getting tons of backlash for his controversial race joke. He told Selena that he really missed her," the source says.
The coup de grace came when he said that Selena Gomez "was the ONLY one who truly understood him and that he needed her by his side."
“He said that his father’s birthday celebration wouldn’t be the same without Selena because she's part of the family,” the source also reveals.
“He also told her she was his soulmate and that he was lost without her."
