Jelena's Beach Romp
Bieber and Gomez show a lot of PDA (and skin)!
A few months ago, the world was wondering if Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were really a couple, or if the two teen superstars were just merely good friends. Cut to this past week, and there’s absolutely no doubt that the two are boyfriend and girlfriend, as they’ve been putting on a major display of PDA that nobody could have predicted.

The couple’s first big reveal came in late February at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, where they stepped out as a couple for the first time. Then, on May 22, Justin happily planted a big kiss on Selena after winning Top New Artist at the Billboard Awards. Now, months later and with the summer unofficially starting this weekend, the two were romping around on the beaches of Maui, with a bikini-sporting Selena straddling Justin as they frolicked in the water.

So, as the couple happily finds their way through true love, join Celebuzz as we take a look back at how it all played out, from the first sparks to full-blown affection.
