Yesterday, an obscured black and white photo of a young couple in a romantic clinch circulated around the internet, which showbiz website Hollywood Life branded as "solid proof that Justin and Selena are a couple".
However, a spokesperson for the 'Baby' hitmaker today confirmed to Gossip Cop: "This is not Selena nor is it Justin. Someone is trying to shop around false pictures."
Speculation over Bieber's relationship with the Wizards of Waverly Place star has continued to intensify - despite both parties denying any romantic involvement - due to their frequent public meetings.
