Selena Gomez has reportedly approached Justin Bieber’s pastor in a bid to help the troubled star.
The singer-and-actress sparked speculation she has rekindled her romance with the pop heartthrob when they were spotted kissing in Norway earlier this month. Since the stars initially split late last year, Justin has seemingly been on a downward spiral ‘ he was criticised for arriving late on stage for his world tour, accused of spitting at a neighbour and his tour bus was searched for drugs by police last week. However, Selena is determined to get Justin back on the right track and has turned to Pastor Judah Smith for advice.
‘Selena’s been in touch with Justin’s best friend Pastor Judah Smith and asking advice on how she should approach things. He’s convinced that Selena can help Justin, so he’s doing everything he can to get them back together,’ a source told British magazine Heat.
Justin and Selena seemed to confirm they are an item again when she appeared in a photograph with him shirtless on Instagram last week.
As well as seeking advice from the pastor, she’s also been in contact with Justin’s confidante and former ‘swagger coach’ Ryan Good.
‘Selena’s been asking friends like Ryan and Judah how she should win Justin round,’ the source added. ‘She feels he needs her more than ever and wants to at least be friends with him again ‘ she thinks he’s lost his way without his usual support network and wants to make sure he’s alright.’
Judah has spoken out about Justin’s rocky patch. He believes the 19-year-old star needs the support of loved ones to help him through this difficult period.
‘The celebrities that I counsel are some of the most isolated and sometimes alone people in the world,’ he told the magazine. ‘I’m a firm believer in community and having people around who love you.’
Judah has apparently been trying to get Selena and Justin to reunite for some time.
It has been claimed he gave Selena a copy of the relationship book The 5 Languages of Love: The Secret to Love that Lasts in a bid to help them work through their issues.
