Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber often went to the Hillsong NYC church together as a couple. But after the breakup, Bieber continues to go to church with his now-wife, Hailey Bieber. And despite the breakup, Selena Gomez would attend the same church, often at times attending the same Hillsong event. However, this new scandal was the last straw for Selena, as she has lost all hope in the church. The source told The Daily Telegraph:

At one stage she adored Carl…she, Brian, his Daughter Laura and Justin were a team, really close, she used to hang out with Brian’s daughter-in-law Esther, now she doesn’t want anything to do with Hillsong anymore.

At this point, it isn’t clear if Haily and Justin Bieber will continue their ties with the church, but Justin did unfollow Carl Lentz after news of the scandal broke out last November. He has kept a low profile ever since and Selena hasn’t publicly commented on the scandal as well.
