Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez’s Relationship Isn’t Just Controversial, It’s Actually Illegal

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have the most buzzed about relationship in town. Rumors that the two are dating took flight when photos of the pair canoodling in swimsuits hit the web, at which point crazed Bieber fans began aggressively threatening Selena on Twitter and across the web. Then today, Selena’s Facebook and Twitter profiles were hacked. The perpetrator, who goes by “PkinJ0r,” sent messages like “Justin Bieber sucks” from Selena’s handle.

Justin and Selena have yet to publicly admit to their relationship, however — and perhaps that’s because it isn’t just controversial, it’s actually illegal. Selena is 18, making her an adult in the eyes of the law, and Justin’s 16, which means he’s a minor. If the two have sex, Selena would be guilty of statutory rape. According to the California Penal Code, “Any person who engages in an act of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor who is not more than three years older or three years younger than the perpetrator, is guilty of a misdemeanor.”

Hypothetically, this means that if Justin (or his parents) were to press charges against Selena, she’d be guilty of a misdemeanor and fined up to $2,000. If she were one year older or he one year younger, she could face a felony conviction and possible jail time. Yikes!

Is the whole illegality thing the reason Justin and Selena haven’t come clean about their romance? Who knows, Bieber could be returning to CSI more than just one more time.

    Alot of young boys are having sex with older women and the mother doesnt care because its about growing pains and allowing the boy to grow up and have independence in his choices. As men we don’t really judge rape and older women, we just thank God he’s messing with a female who has a life, who is a professional and she’s not ghetto and a hood rat (white,black or brown). The boys needs some credit, and Selena Gomez should get some credit too- not all young women her age just sleeps with anyone regardless of fame and status, it could be infatuation or a platonic male female relationship minus sex, give her some credit and get a life and stop assuming a picture tells the truth

    That thing was also controversial when Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant by an 18-year old boyfriend, Jamie was 16 at that time she got knocked up. They were living in three states, CA, Louisiana and Mississippi. The charges were dropped in CA when their age gap were only two years apart.

      u shouldn’t hate etheir of them besides its not like selena did drugs and people should mine their own bees-wax :) selena and justin should be able to do what ever they want to do and trust me they wont have sex :) they will wait if they want :)

  • LostInTime

    even though what there doing is “Illegal” I still think they make a cute couple. You guys should just leave them alone, cause they weren’t famous no one would care. And I highly doubt there gonna be having sex anytime soon. :(

    This always happens with celebrity relationships. Someone is caught kissing with someone, everyone expects them to have sex. Something happens and they break up. Or, it’s just a huge lie. Which this probably is…

  • Rocket

    Who cares I like Selena and hate Justin but I honestly could say just about 100% of you won’t even be able to date one of them and if Selena wants to take a chance with any trouble, well she’s smart she knows the consequences and will have to deal with them.

  • mrpaisley

    It wouldnt be such a big deal if there were not hundreds of guys sitting in jail for the same little “its no big deal” or “close enough” attitude. I wonder if Justin takes off his wig before he goes to bed. My uncle wears the same wig…..

  • Splat

    Well mr. smartypants, you JUST contradicted yourself in your own freaking article -_____- AND just shutup and leave them alone. Dumbass………… it says 3 years THREE YEARS are allowed and they’re only 2 years TWO years apart, give or take a few months. Tsss SMH

  • mel lowry

    it’s only illegal if they are having sex! Their strict religious background makes it entirely possible that while they are sleeping together may very well remain celibate. something to consider. Give them the benefit of the doubt.
