It’s the breakup heard ‘round the world. It’s the breakup that made us scream, “LOVE ISN’T REAL!” Just kidding. It’s the breakup that you scrolled passed on your Twitter timeline and kept scrolling because you didn’t give a f-ck. Justin Bieber and his girlfriend of 6 whole weeks, Sofia Richie (daughter of Lionel, sister of Nicole, enemy of Selena) have broken up, according to TMZ.
In other news, the sky is blue and Beyoncé is a Queen. Justin Bieber is 22. Sofia is 18. The only surprising thing about this is that they lasted six weeks. TMZ is reporting that the two “were never all that serious to begin with” and even though they celebrated her 18th birthday together in Mexico, that “neither seem too busted up about the breakup.” Sofia was seen out partying this weekend and Justin is “ready to date other girls.” Of course, he is. He’s Justin Bieber. There will be another barely legal girl all over his Instagram by next week.
The only thing this relationship gave us was that glorious Instagram feud between Bieber and his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. To recap, Justin threatened to shut down his Instagram account (he did and then re-opened it. This kid.) and then Selena called him out for putting his new relationship all over social media and then complaining about it. Then, some great public pettiness ensued. If nothing else, this fleeting summer romance gave us that.
Again, these two are 18 and 22. If Justin hasn’t already moved on to the “other girls,” he and Sofia will probably break up and get back together, delete their accounts and re-open them five more times by the time I’m finished writing this.
OK, I’m done. You can go back to caring about that other celebrity breakup now.
