Well… this certainly escalated quickly.

Just two weeks ago, we reported on the rumor that Justin Bieber had been ordered to leave Selena Gomez alone.

With the latter singer in rehab for a number of emotional issues, OK! Weekly claimed that Selena’s family "recently reached out to Justin and told him to stay far, far away."

These loved ones apparently blame Bieber for Gomez’s ongoing "downward spiral," which forced her to cancel the remainder of her 2016 tour and basically go into hiding.

But do they really?!?

Okay, yes, they probably do.

But does Selena agree with this assessment? Not according to a hilarious new report from In Touch Weekly.

The tabloid claims that not only are Justin and Selena in contact again… but they are back together! And REALLY, REALLY serious!

“She’s already talking as if they are engaged,” an anonymous tells In Touch, adding:

“Selena will get married in private, just to show them she doesn’t need [her family’s] approval.”

Why would Gomez go from zero to sixty in this kind of manner? What would make her think that she and Bieber remotely prepared to be husband and wife?

“She thinks if they just bite the bullet and get married, all of their problems will disappear,” the insider says.

At the end of August, Gomez cited her Lupus diagnosis and said she was taking a professional break to focus on her health.

"As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways," she wrote in a statement that continued as follows:

"I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks, and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.

"I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.

"Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best."

This announcement came just a short while after Gomez criticized Bieber for being so public with his romance back when he was dating Sophia Richie.

After Bieber asked fans to stop threatening his new girlfriend over the summer, Gomez jumped in to his Instagram comments and said Justin ought to keep the relationship private if he wants Sophia to be left alone.

This allegedly led to a big fight between the ex-lovers and Selena’s eventual stint in rehab.

So, why would Gomez want Bieber back now?

Not because he’s been acting like a gentlemen, that’s for sure.

On two recent occasions, Bieber told off fans at his concerts because they dared to scream and cheer while he tried to talk.

After receiving backlash for his actions, Bieber issued a lame apology over why he acted like such a douchebag.

"I simply feel like, if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice," he Tweeted as an explanation for his behavior.

Bieber, thinking he’s all profound, went on to add:

"There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. But I don’t pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don’t say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I’d be a robot, and I’m just, I’m not a robot.

"There’s times when I get upset … times when I get angry, there’s times when I’m going to be myself on this stage.

"All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit. Certain people … certain cities aren’t going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it’s my job to just say, ‘hey, I’m not going to try to force anything.’

"I just appreciate you guys tonight, listening to me and understand, and rocking with me. You guys are truly amazing."

You’ve got a real keeper here, Selena.
