Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have finally confirmed their romance is back on by sealing their reunion with a public kiss.
The young couple dated on-and-off from 2011 to 2014 and reconnected as friends over the summer (17) after Selena underwent kidney transplant surgery – and they began spending time together in late October (17), as it emerged the Come and Get It hitmaker had parted ways with her boyfriend The Weeknd.
Selena has since become a regular spectator at Justin’s weekly ice hockey games in Los Angeles, and during a time-out on Wednesday (15Nov17), the singers made it clear their relationship is no longer platonic.
In photos obtained by TMZ.com, a smiling Selena, dressed in a black T-shirt and matching baggy pants, is pictured reaching over the ice rink’s barrier and placing her hands on Justin’s shoulders as she leans in to plant a big kiss on his lips.

The stars have yet to comment on their rekindled romance, but their public display of affection comes days after a source told People.com Justin and Selena are keen to keep their blossoming love under wraps.
“They are great and very happy,” the insider said. “It just got too crazy last week with all the attention (on the pair hanging out again)… He didn’t like the chaos.”
Justin was also said to be taking things slowly with Selena in a bid to prove he is a changed man after a few wild years of bad behavior.
“He doesn’t feel any rush, because no doubt they are already emotionally back together,” the source continued. “Justin still needs to win her family over and he realizes it will take some time. But he very much feels he is a different person. He wants to be with her and will do anything to prove he can be a great boyfriend.”
