And Biebs tells Complex magazine that their relationship was so intense, it was doomed.
"We were so in love. Nothing else mattered. We were all about each other. But when it's like that and you get your value from that, people will always disappoint you.
"Your girl or your dude, they're always going to disappoint you. Your full identity can't be in that person. My identity was in her. Her identity was in me."

Biebs posts a bunch of photos of him with his new girlfriend, Sofia Richie, on Instagram. After his fans start trolling Sofia, Biebs changes the caption on one of the snaps to: "I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like."
Selena comments on the picture with: "If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol" she wrote. "It should be special between you two only. Don't be mad at your fans. They love and supported you before anyone ever did."
Biebs wasn't crazy about Selena's comments, so replies to her saying: "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I'm not one for receiving any kind of hate. Hope you all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers."
Selena then replies saying: "Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are the ones pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive. No wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love."
Biebs has the final say by replying: "I cheated. Oh, I forgot about you and Zayn?"
Woah, is this Biebs telling us Selena cheated on him with Zayn Malik?
