The photo showed the pair looking cosy, and was circulated around the internet - by both gossip blogs and fans - even though it was deleted shortly after. It was also posted just hours after it was reported that Gomez travelled to Oslo in order to visit the 'Beauty and a Beat' singer on tour.
However, there is speculation that the photo may be fake. The screenshots do not show Bieber's Instagram page, and fans are saying that if it was real, it is likely someone would have taken a better screenshot before it was deleted.
There's no doubt that something is brewing between the two of them, though. Bieber and Gomez were apparently spotted in Norway holding hands and kissing, and new photos from TMZ show that Bieber has a photo of Gomez as his phone screensaver.

A source told People, "They were holding hands, hugging and they kissed on the lips. They looked really in love, like no fights ever happened before. It definitely looked like they were back together."
The insider continued, "They have a crazy connection. They just can't seem to break their connection. It can be intense."
