Multiple sources confirmed to Peoplethat the couple's busy careers played a part in their split. "She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship. It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York," the source revealed. "That wasn’t easy on them.”
The news comes on the heels of multiple sightings of Selena hanging out with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. While sources have claimed that the duo are not back together, they have beenspotted spending quality time together all over Los Angeles.
The two are said to have made amends after Selena went public with news of her life-changing kidney transplant surgery. The Canadian singer was first seen hanging out at Selena’s LA home on Oct 23. Less than a week later, the pair was spotted at Justin’s rented mansion on Oct 29, and again enjoying a friendly brunch at JOi Café in Westlake Village, California. It appears the former lovebirds are making up for lost time, with a source telling People, “Justin lost touch with Selena for a while, but they are communicating again.”
The source continued: “He visited her at home last week. They spent a few hours together as friends. He was very worried after learning about her kidney transplant. He is so relieved that she is doing well.” So well, in fact, that the two have also been attending church services together at LA’s Zoe Church.

Justin and Selena’s romance was anything but smooth sailing after officially going public with their relationship back in February 2011. They went through numerous breakups to makeups before calling it quits in 2014. At the time of the breakup, a source explained to People, “With them being apart so much it got complicated. She had some trust issues. It’s not easy, but the relationship needed to end.”
