The once happy couple allegedly had a blow out after Justin showed up to one of Selena's concert with rapper Sean Kingston. Apparently Sean is just one of the friends, all of whom have criminal past, that Selena doesn't approve of... she doesn't like her young beau hanging out with Chris Brown and Lil' Wayne either.

A source told The Sun, "She didn't want him to crash her gig. They had a huge row and said it was good they were having time apart while she was on tour." Also a friend of Selena revealed that "Selena told him to stop hanging with these bad people."

The friend claimed that Justin was brought to tears during the fight, saying, "It's hard seeing a little 17-year-old crying and saying he loves her."

What do you think? Are Justin and Selena really taking a break?

UPDATE: There were no signs of a break-up at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. When Selena and her band The Scene took the stage Justin mouthed the lyrics to her new single and danced from the audience.
