One year after secretly marrying in a New York registry office, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin wed for the second time on Monday. In an intimate ceremony held in South Carolina’s Somerset Chapel, the loved up coupled said their “I Do’s” in front of 154 guests including, Ed Sheeran, Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Usher and Jaden Smith.

While many have been waiting for Justin’s long-term ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez to react to the news, a source close to the “Wolves” singer says she’s too busy focusing on herself, and her mental health to give their romance a second throught. 

“She is in a good place,” an insider told Us Magazine, revealing the pop sensation isn’t bothered her ex has found love again. “She knows she’s better off without Justin and that it’s the healthiest decision for her. She has been hanging out with old friends and family and keeping herself out of the limelight and away from public places where she might feel bombarded or overwhelmed.” 

Although the source revealed the former Disney star is finally over Justin, she’s too busy focusing on herself and her mental health to jump into another relationship.  

“She is open to dating, but right now, she is solely focused on herself and enjoying life to the best of her ability and getting back to being the Selena that she and all of her close ones knew prior to dating Justin.”

As we all know, the Spring Breakers actress— who recently revealed she executive-produced the upcoming Netflix documentary, Living Undocumented— and the “Sorry” singer have a long romantic history. The former couple dated on and off from 2011 to 2018. It’s been said that Selena called time on their tumultuous relationship after realising they weren’t right for each other. 

“Selena started seeing the bigger picture when it came to their relationship, like what was more important: her general happiness and her family and friends’ approval, or her being together with Justin, where no one really supported their relationship,” a source told Us Magazine in May 2018. “She obviously chose happiness and her friends and family and is so thrilled about her decision-making process. She feels more empowered than ever and is looking forward to this next chapter.” 

Less than two months after they separated once and for all, Justin and Hailey— who previously dated from December 2015 to January 2016— began seeing each other again. Three months after going public with their relationship, the singer revealed he popped the question to his model girlfriend! The pair obtained their marriage license in September 2018! While on paper they seemed like they were the perfect match, a source close to Justin and Hailey recently revealed they decided to tie the knot for a second time because they wanted to start fresh. 

“Justin and Hailey are far more emotionally and mentally supportive of each other than ever before,” a source close to the pair told Us Magazine. “It has been a process, but they have worked through it and have come out on the other side of things. They are in a much healthier and understanding space now and are so happy to be celebrating their love with their families and friends.” 

It’s no secret they’ve endured their fair share of ups and downs, with Justin’s unstable mental health being at the forefront of their dramas. Weeks after the couple married, Justin sought professional help for anxiety and depression. Then, in a lengthy Instagram post after leaving treatment he explained how he was stepping away from music to focus on himself. 

“Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird. I always bounce back so I’m not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for you guys to pray for me. God is faithful and ur prayers really work thanks,” he began. 

“I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep-rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be.”
