Nicki Swift Asks: Which of Justin Bieber’s exes is your favorite?

Justin Bieber’s dating history has long been a topic of interest for fans, and as always, everyone had a lot to say about it. To make things even more intriguing, many of his songs have been speculatively attributed to various relationships. His hit “Never Let You Go” was reportedly written for Caitlin Beadles, per Us Weekly, following their whirlwind relationship in 2009. There has been endless speculation as to who Bieber wrote “Love Yourself” for, with some claiming it was for Selena Gomez had been others suspected it was for Chantel Jeffries, according to NME. Then, of course, his hit “Sorry” was a big mystery, and songwriter Justin Tranter told CBS Mornings that the timing of Bieber’s relationship with Gomez mattered.

“Sometimes you can use what’s happening in pop culture to influence a song,” Tranter said. “So obviously, what we’re talking about in ‘Sorry,’ everyone experienced that moment like, ‘OK, wait, I really have to apologize.’ So that’s a very universal sentiment, but being also aware of how pop culture viewed him at that moment, I knew an apology would be good.

Many of Bieber’s exes have spoken out about dating the pop superstar, and most have positive things to say, especially now that he’s moved in with his wife, Hailey Bieber. Still, we couldn’t resist taking a step back and asking fans who their favorite past relationships were.

Selena Gomez reigns supreme

In a poll conducted by Nicki Swift, we asked fans which of Justin Bieber’s ex-boyfriends is their favorite.

Jeffries received 65 votes and received 11.04% of the total score. Richie came in second with 70 votes and received 11.88% of the votes. At the top of the list, which won by a landslide, Gomez received 343 votes, a 58.23% share.

In 2015, following her relationship with Bieber, Gomez dated DJ Zedd on Us Weekly and later The Weeknd for part of the time in 2017. Later, in August 2022, Gomez was linked to producer Andrea Iervolino, and the two were spotted on vacation in Italy. However, an insider told Us Weekly that the romance is casual. “Selena and Andrea are just friends,” the source said. “She’s dating a few guys and is keeping her options open.” So we’ll have to wait and see what happens there.
