NEW YORK — Justin Bieber is no longer Selena Gomez’s “Boyfriend,” a source confirmed to the Associated Press.

The source spoke on condition of anonymity.

The breakup apparently happened last week. Distance and their busy schedules were cited as factors.

Eighteen-year-old Bieber is touring to promote his latest album, “Believe,” which includes the hit “Boyfriend.”

Twenty-year-old Gomez is filming a “Wizards of Waverly Place” reunion for the Disney Channel.

They made their relationship public in February 2011.

E! News was the first to report the split.

Bieber seems to be doing OK, at least publicly.

On the red carpet of Wednesday’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show he said, “I’d rather be here than anywhere in the world.”
