It seems like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez cannot stay away from each other. The former couple are reportedly texting each other, even as it was recently claimed that the Same Old Love singer was finally "over" her ex-flame.

The two dated from 2010 until early 2015, before parting ways. "Justin and Selena are talking over text but it is a little strained between the two right now," a source told HollywoodLife. "But as much as it isn't getting romantic right now, things change every second with these two that by the weekend if Justin is lonely, he will probably start putting on the charm to get her interested again. Just another day between these two, they can't stand each other and they can't stand being without each other."

Previously an insider had told the gossip site: "Selena in her never-ending back and forth with Justin is now over him again. She doesn't really want to deal with him right now and is now focused on her tour and career. But the way Selena acts tomorrow is going to be a whole new wave length and she will be probably all about him again."

The Sorry singer and Gomez sparked dating rumours after the two liked each other's photos on Instagram, following which the 23-year-old attended Bieber's concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in March. However, their rekindled relationship was on the rocks, after Bieber reportedly had accompanied another rumoured former girlfriend Hailey Baldwin to the iHeartRadio Music Awards on 3 April.

At the awards ceremony, Bieber is said to have completely ignored Gomez, resulting in the latter skipping his performance. "They [Selena and Justin] keep playing mind games with each other because they both want to wear the pants when it comes to a relationship," a source told Life and Styles magazine. "As much as they want things to happen again, it's easier to play these games," the source added.
