“Feels,” the “What Do You Mean?” singer, 22, captioned the shot. Taken back when the pair were an item, a shirtless Bieber is pictured puckering up for Gomez, 23, as they swim in the ocean.
The undated image is clearly a few years old, as in it Biebs rocks his signature long locks from the early years of his career. The entertainer, who now has dozens of tattoos and a more muscular frame, also appears slightly thinner and un-inked.
The couple’s turbulent three-year relationship officially ended in 2014, but the duo once known as Jelena have publicly spoken out about each other on multiple occasions since then.
The “Hands to Myself” crooner opened up to W magazine in February about her relationship with Bieber, admitting, “At first I didn’t care. To me it was: I’m 18, I have a boyfriend, we look cute together, we like that. Then I got my heart broken and I cared. Because people had no idea what was going on, but everywhere it was a million different things. I was kind of in a corner, banging my head against the wall. I didn’t know where to go.”
She added, “I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can’t do it anymore.”
As soon as Bieber shared the adorable photo on Saturday, Beliebers everywhere went crazy on Twitter.
“JELENA IS REAL,” one user commented, while another wrote, “This is so rude of you! If y’all aren’t in a relationship, why post things like this? She is gonna keep being linked to you when she is her own person that is incredibly talented. I get that you aren’t over her bc of how great she is but this needs to stop.”
