Did Justin Bieber And Rihanna Have An Affair Behind Selena Gomez's Back?

If a new report from Life & Style Weekly magazine has any truth to it, Justin Bieber and Rihanna might have more in common than their love of tattoos.
Life & Style reports that the real reason Selena Gomez broke up with the pop star is because she recently found out that her boyfriend and Rihanna have been doing the horizontal bop behind her back.
A friend of Justin and Selena's tells Life & Style the news has "devastated" Selena.
"It really cut like a knife because it happened in February of 2011, when Selena and Justin had been dating for months and were falling in love," the pal says. "It's caused Selena to question their entire relationship."
"Selena thinks maybe they've been hooking up all along," the friend adds.
Justin and Rihanna were spotted sitting next to each other and flirting at a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game back in February 2011, which is when they began hooking up, according to the anonymous source.
But Bieber's infatuation with the Bajan singer goes back further than that. During an appearance on Chelsea Handler's talk show Chelsea Lately in 2009, Bieber -- then just 15 -- told the host that he had a crush on Rihanna.
"Yea, I asked her out. It didn't go so well since I'm not with her," he said. "I asked her out and she was basically like, 'You're too young.'"
A month later Justin and Rihanna were at a VEVO video launch party, where Justin told E! News he was elated that his crush kissed him on the cheek.
"I'll probably never wash my face," Justin said before tweeting a photo of himself with lipstick on his cheek. "Just got a kiss from rihanna!! Hahahahaha. Life is amazing!!" he wrote.
"He's a cutie-pie!" Rihanna told E!.
Later that year Us Magazine reported that Justin flashed Rihanna his abs during a dinner with record executive L.A. Reid in Manhattan.
"Justin Bieber just flashed me his abs in the middle of a restaurant!" An impressed Rihanna tweeted. "Wow! He actually had a lil 6 pack! Sexy,lol!"
Selena and Justin broke up in early November 2010, the same week that Justin and Rihanna performed during the taping of the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. They reportedly hooked up during taping breaks, the source reveals.
"During breaks, they'd sneak away to the Hotel Giraffe. They were alone — their security made sure of it. Hotel staff blocked off the entire floor for them," says the insider.
After the show, Justin was also linked to models Barbara Palvin and Cara Delevingne.
Naturally, Justin's rep has denied that anything physical happened between the two; and there's been no comment on the situation from Rihanna or Selena's camps as of yet.
