Justin Beiber spent months convincing Selena Gomez to give him a second chance, despite her still being in a relationship with The Weeknd.
Sources close to both camps revealed to TMZ that Selena's life-threatening medical condition- which saw her undergo a kidney transplant- put things into perspective for Justin, and he didn't want to waste another second of his life without her.
It also appears that Justin started messaging Gomez when she was still in a relationship with The Weeknd.
However, it now seems that Justin's resilience has paid off, as the couple have been spotted together three times this week, with the latest round of photos showing the two on a romantic bike ride in downtown Los Angeles.
Speaking to TMZ, an unnamed source said, " Selena had to be won over. She had her doubts, but Justin was persuasive."
Yet while the recent photos might suggest that Jelena was always meant to be, some news outlets are claiming Gomez's 10-month relationship with The Weeknd-real name Abel Tesfaye- was ended by the "Starboy" hitmaker. After all, it was only a few months ago that the Gomez described her then-beau as her "best friend."
Whatever happens with Jelena, it can't get any worse than the first time around, and if the Biebs really is a changed man, then their rekindled romance might just lead to the Hollywood marriage of the decade.
