Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Kissing Photo Is Fake, Says Rep

BREAKING: Justin Bieber fan blog Bieber Heiress posted a photo of what looks like Justin, 16, planting a smooch on Selena Gomez. It started a mini-whirlwind on the web, but faster than you can say “OMG,” Justin’s rep exclusively tells Celebuzz that the kissing photo is a fake.

Bieber’s rep says that the photo is photoshopped and is not Selena or Justin, and that hopefully “no one is actually paying money for that photo.” Why? Because they’re getting a whole lot of nothing, according to the rep. Guess you can’t believe everything you read (or see)!

Bieber Heiress swears that the photo is authentic, citing Justin and Selena’s jewelry as evidence that it is actually the two teen stars locking lips, but Bieber’s rep tells Celebuzz that the photo is fake.

Some Jelena deniers were offering voices of dissent on the kissing photo, insisting that the photo is an old pic of Selena kissing ex-boyfriend Ryan Sheckler. However, Bieber’s rep insists that the photo is of niether Justin nor Selena.

The two teen stars have been battling relationship rumors for the past few months ever since they were photographed leaving an IHOP together arm-in-arm. Check out our complete timeline of the are-they-or-aren’t-they couple’s relationship.
