Here's how Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are coping with their recent split

It seems they're not doing so hot.

By now you know Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are on a break. Whether you're in favour of that or sharply against it and hope they reunite soon, the two needed some time to cool off from their multiple hockey dates. After reports of their split surfaced this week, Gomez reportedly decided to jet off to Texas to get away from all the drama and mull things over. Meanwhile, Bieber is sulking in a Mercedes G-Class.

"Selena went to Texas for the weekend to be with her family," said an E! News source. "She's on a break with Justin partly because of family pressure but also because of some issues surrounding his birthday." What issues? Was it because she made them sort of Instagram official the same day?

Or it could also be a direct result of Gomez's mum Mandy Teefey's blatant disapproval of the relationship. Either way, Gomez is testing to see if distance truly makes the heart grow fonder.

Bieber, on the other hand, doesn't appear to be doing so well. He was spotted looking distraught while sitting in a car.

Sure that could just be a normal reaction to paparazzi, but it could also mean he's a wreck without Gomez.

Bieber also happily went out for a poke bowl this week, so he's handling the big change the best he can.

In the end, visiting family and avoiding the paparazzi are all fine alternatives to crying into a pint of ice cream while binge watching This Is Us.

While it's all very confusing, distract yourself with happier times by watching all the cutest moments between this once loved-up pair:
