After months of speculation as to the relationship status of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, reports are claiming the couple have officially split.
"Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship," a source told People.com on Friday.
This report comes after Bieber raised eyebrows on Thursday night when he was seen at the Broadway show Lion King with 19-year-old Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin. The Boyfriend singer performed at the 2012 VS show the night prior.
Gomez made no reference to a breakup during her recent interview with Cosmopolitan magazine but did touch on dealing with Bieber's rabid fans, saying, "I adore his fans. I would never, ever want to disrespect them. You know, I get it."
According to the website, the couple broke up a week ago. Bieber, 18, and Gomez, 20, went public with their romance in Feb. 2011 when they showed up to Vanity Fair's Oscar Awards after party.
