A member of Selena Gomez's family has reportedly hit out at Justin Bieber as a "vile human" just days after the former couple were spotted in a café together.

The 'Never Say Never' hitmaker met up with the 25-year-old singer - who he was involved in an on/off relationship with between 2011 and 2014 - on Sunday at JOi Cafe in Westlake Village, California, but one of her relatives is not happy about the reunion. 

A member of Selena's family is said to have told gossip website TMZ: "Justin is a vile human and will never be accepted by us. As long as she is even speaking to him in any way, it is not only disrespectful to everyone around her, it is disrespectful to herself."

Justin, 23, wore a hoodie and Selena a striped dress for their meeting at the cafe, where they were for around 25 minutes. 

A source said: "They seemed friendly. There was no PDA."

It comes shortly after the pair are said to have met up at the 'Wolves' hitmaker's house which led to speculation they could be set to rekindle their romance - but Selena is still dating singer The Weeknd.

A source said: "Selena is still with The Weeknd, and she only sees Justin as a friend.

"Selena is the one who got Justin involved in this church. It was her attempt to help turn his life around, and it really did help. He's really committed to it and has formed a strong network. So, they have a lot of mutual friends now from that."

Another insider explained: "They are not dating, it's nothing romantic.

"Justin and Selena are just friends right now. They reconnected and, right now, Justin wants to be a good friend to her. At least for now, it's a friendship."
