Justin Bieber recently participated in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday. The 23-year-old singer last competed in the same game in 2011.
Unfortunately, Bieber's team did not win on Friday night, but the "Baby" singer appeared to be in good spirits. After playing for Team Lakers with Nick Cannon, Caleb McLaughlin, Jerry Ferrara, Kris Wu, and Drew Scott, Bieber bonded with his teammates. He also met with some of his fans.
Team Lakers competed against Team Clippers, which was made up of Jamie Foxx, Miles Brown, Quavo, Win Butler, Flea, and Dascha Polanco. Team Clippers won with a score of 75 to 66.
Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez's Valentine's Day Date
Other than his recent loss, Bieber also made headlines earlier this week after he and Selena Gomez were spotted kissing on Valentine's Day. The couple has not yet confirmed whether or not they are back together, but they have been hanging out since last year.
Gomez flew to Los Angeles from New York on Wednesday and dined with Bieber at the Montage Beverly Hills hotel. Photos of the rumored couple were shared online, and in one of the pictures, Gomez is seen touching Bieber's ear. Even though Gomez and Bieber have not officially shared the real status of their relationship, an insider said that they are in a much better place at the moment.
"They always want to be open books and keep things real and honest. It's helped reduce stress, and as a result, they're in a much healthier spot," said the source.
Selena Gomez Checks Into Rehab
Bieber has also been supportive of Gomez's desire to improve her mental health. The "Wolves" singer previously said that she has been battling with depression and anxiety.
"I've had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I've been very vocal about it, but it's not something I feel I'll ever overcome. There won't be a day when I'm like, 'Here I am in a pretty dress - I won!' I think it's a battle I'm gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I'm okay with that because I know that I'm choosing myself over anything else," said Gomez.
The "Hands to Myself" singer recently checked into rehab for a two-month rehabilitation program. A source said that the program is focused on physical and mental wellness, as well as clean eating. After Gomez completed her stint in rehab, she returned to New York and started working on her upcoming projects.
