TMZ caught up with Bieber last week following the news that Gomez and The Weeknd may or may not be a thing, but the pop star had no comment. The "Sorry" singer buzzed past the paparazzi and didn't have anything to say ... for now.

Gomez and The Weeknd have stayed tight-lipped so far, with Gomez posting this sneak peek of her inside the studio, teasing a new song.
