A source tells PEOPLE that Gomez was crying over her beau at an L.A. party last week
But multiple photos from the fete show the “Love You Like a Love Song” singer all smiles, appearing to be in upbeat spirits. She was even photographed being twirled around by a man identified as Bieber’s close pal Alfredo Flores.
TMZ reported Monday that the young lovebirds broke up last week, but have since gotten back together.
The couple faced split rumors last August, but quickly proved they were still an item when they sat next to each other smiling at the Teen Choice Awards.
Just a week ago, Gomez, 19, and Bieber, 18, were photographed wearing coordinating outfits at the Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D premiere.
Neither half of the Twitter-happy pair has addressed the breakup reports.
Reps for the stars have not responded to a request for comment.
