Justin Bieber's Manager Responds to Selena Gomez Dating Rumors (Finally!)

After they were caught making out on a private yacht, you'd think there was no way anyone could deny that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's are dating.

But Scott Braun, Justin's manager, did just that during a live chat with the singer's fans on Tuesday. "Everyone says I'm ignoring a certain issue that you all want to know about," said Braun, who was clearly talking about Selena and Justin's rumored romance.

"Everybody wants to know something. Here's what I'm going to tell you. This kid travels a lot and I always told him, I was always like, 'You shouldn't be in a relationship unless you can give someone everything.' I know that him and the person you're asking about are really close friends and have been for a while. As far as I know, that's what they are."

Um, OK. Last time we checked, close friends don't make out, cuddle and groap each other, unless special benefits have already been discussed!
