A suspicious photo of Justin Bieber holding hands with Kim Kardashian's little sis Kylie Jenner recently hit the web, sparking rumors that the Biebs is dating the 15-year-old reality starlet just a few weeks after breaking up with girlfriend Selena Gomez. But no worries, Jelena hopefuls, the rumors are a hoax thanks to the craftiness of one talented Photoshop mastermind. It turns out that the image, which was posted on Jenner' alleged "secret" Instagram account Iputthedistrictonmyback, is merely an old pic of Bieber and Gomez holding hands while trying to escape the paparazzi (with Kylie's head photoshopped over the "Spring Breakers" face).
Check out the Instagram photo that initially stirred some heated buzz on the web:
Now compare this image to the same exact photo of Gomez and Bieber taken months ago which was recently dug up by the gossip gurus over at PerezHilton.com:
So the "Kylie and Justin holding hands" pic is definitely fake and has since been deleted... but whoever posted the shady image went through a lot of trouble to make the dating rumors appear legit. The Instagram account allegedly associated with Jenner (Iputthedistrictonmyback) carries out a rather flirtatious convo with another "secret" (and most likely totally fake) Instagram handle that supposedly belongs to the Biebs (imthatcanadian):
Pretty ridiculous, but the Instagram/Photoshop hoax still managed to garner much attention on the web. But for now it appears that such rumors are completely false... Bieber and Jenner are NOT dating (although it looks like Kylie's sister Kendall and Bieber's good pal Lil Twist might have a little romance of their own going on...).
