One would think that the day after the United States takes a hit in its credit rating, there'd be good news to report the next day. But reality often bites in waves, and so instead of something good happening, I'm sad (and yet compelled) to relay the message that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have apparently split up. The reason for the departure of ways is being chalked up to the fact that Selena didn't like who Justin's friends in the music business were, like Sean Kingston (who was arrested when he was 11 years old for breaking and entering) and Chris Brown (who, you know, does his own thing entirely). Additionally, there's a rumor that Selena forbade Justin from hanging out with Lil Wayne (who's served time in jail for weapon and drug possession charges) but Justin wasn't interested in discontinuing his friendship with Weezy. An insider even told The Sun that Justin tried really hard to convince Selena that she had nothing to worry about in terms of his friends, and said that during arguments, it would be "hard seeing a little 17 year-old crying and saying he loves [Selena]." But who knows how long the split will last, because Bieber's got quite the desk drawer full of one liners at his disposal.
