Aaand it’s OVER! Sofia and Justin’s ‘special’ relationship is legit done

Just days after gushing over her 'special' relationship with Justin Bieber, Sofia Richie and the Love Yourself singer have called time on their romance.

The couple, who had been dating just six weeks, came to the public's attention in August when Justin shared a snap of the pair looking cosy on Instagram.

And, as expected, all hell broke loose.

After being slammed by his followers and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez for flaunting his budding romance with Nicole Richie's younger sister, Justin did what he does best – threw a major strop and deleted his Insta account.

"I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand." Justin raged. "If you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people like that.”

And whether pressure from fans or scorn from an ex took its toll on their romance, no one is quite sure, but reports emerging Stateside have confirmed that Jofia are officially no more.

"They’re broken up for now," a source told PEOPLE this week.

Although if his insiders are to be believed, Justin and 18-year-old Sofia's relationship was never built to last.

"These girls all go crazy for him, but he’s not settling down. It’s virtually impossible where he’s at in his life and career for anything to last with these girls," they previously said.

Lucky escape for Sofia, perhaps?
