Justin Bieber's redemption tour has taken some surprise twists and turns this year, but this newest development in the life of pop's enfant terrible is somehow totally unexpected and imminently predictable. The big news? Justin Bieber is (maybe?) hooking up with Kourtney Kardashian.
Yes, this one.

Vanity Fair and Gossip Cop broke the story in articles littered with non-committal qualifiers. "Either in real life or the twisted computer algorithm we all recognize as real life," writes Rachel Handler for VF, "21-year-old Biebs and 36-year-old Kourt are having an 'unexpected romance,' one that is 'not serious, but occurs occasionally and they’re both having fun.'"
But the celebrity super sleuths over at Gossip Cop seem to suggest something even more salacious: has this been going on for a while? "Back on October 10, the two also had dinner at The Nice Guy. They later took an Instagram picture of themselves in 3-D glasses at Universal Studios’ 'Halloween Horror Nights' before spending time together later that night."
Is it responsible for a mother of three (15 years senior to her new smoochy boo) to let her children hang around known bad influence Biebs? That kind of speculation is seriously not our business. But hey, Miss K, you go ahead and get what you need!
Fortunately or unfortunately, Biebs' new non-relationship with Kourtney isn't serving him well with the rest of the Kardashian extended Krew, and beef is already brewing on Instagram:
A seemingly innocuous (albeit obnoxious) post from Justin is nothing new, but many are suspecting that the caption "Lord Knows" is a bit of subtle shade being thrown at Scott Disick (Kourtney's ex), considering that he often refers to himself as "Lord."
Meanwhile, former Bieber bae Selena Gomez seems to have moved on completely with Charlie Puth, so she ain't mad.
