Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have called it quits after dating for nearly two years, Us Weekly reports. 

"Selena broke up with Justin about a week ago. It's been a really challenging experience over the last year because of their crazy schedules," a source close to the couple told Us. "Selena definitely had some major trust issues with Justin."

The two teen stars were first seen together on a date at an IHOP in November 2010, though they held off on confirming the romance until the following February. Both stars have been busy lately, with Bieber touring to support his new album, Believe, and Gomez filming a Wizards of Waverly Place reunion for the Disney Channel.

Another source offered some hope of an eventual reconciliation for the pair:  "They are [young] . . . it changes from day to day. Right now it is a break and tomorrow it could be back on knowing them . . . it's hard to say how they will end up," the source said. "Maybe she feels more serious about it this time. We'll see."

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
