Remember back in the olden days, circa late 2010 to early 2011, when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were the quintessential are-they-or-aren't-they-a couple? Back then, only the Twilight lovers, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, were better at keeping the world guessing about the true nature of their relationship. Well, it looks like the olden days are back. And so are Selena and JB. But as what? Are they Jelena again or not? After spending the night together, the couple formerly known as Jelena was spotted enjoying a quiet cozy PDA filled hotel lunch date at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons. Are they once again an official couple or are they playing it cool and cautious now--treading water and trying to work things out?
Although Selena and her supposedly estranged "Boyfriend" arrived at the Four Seasons separately to avoid marauding hordes of paps, they were spotted later lunching at Culina Restaurant. And they reportedly looked anything but estranged.
"Justin and Selena were sitting together at a table at Culina Restaurant holding hands," reported a source. "There was a lot of security around them, but they looked happy and very together."
Oh well, if Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are trying to work things out, they at least picked the right setting for it. Culina Restaurant is described as a "modern Italian eatery where guests can enjoy Mediterranean raw seafood at the crudo bar, or settle in under spectacular glass chandeliers in the main room."
Cool. But the crucial questions remain unanswered. Are they back together? Or have they simply become "friends with benefits?"
Yikes. What would Uncle Walt say?
