She still can’t Belieb it. Jessica Gober, a 22-year-old from Savannah, GA, claimed in a new interview that Justin Bieber DM’ed the gym she works at on Instagram, asking for more information about the blonde beauty.
The 23-year-old pop superstar’s alleged request came after the fitness studio — Fitness On Broughton — posted a Boomerang last week, which featured Jessica promoting an energy drink sold at the gym. As seen in screenshots, Justin asked, “Who’s that girl? In ur latest post,” and included a red heart emoji.
Jessica, who works the front desk and is also a fitness and nutrition coach, told Buzzfeed that she was shocked when the gym notified her about JB’s message — especially since Fitness On Broughton hardly posts on Instagram and only had a handful of followers at the time. “We were like, 'How in the world did he see this random post?'” she said. “We only had 70 followers and had posted 5 times previous to this.”

Not long after, Jessica shared the Biebs’ message via Twitter — and, obvi, it went viral. “Did this actually just happen... lmao,” she wrote. “Justin Bieber just messaged the gym that I work at and asked who I was hahahaha WTF.”
Hours later, Jessica, who is currently dating a handsome fella named Ian McDaniel, let her followers know that she would never entertain the idea of hooking up with Justin. “I’ve got everything I need right here,” she tweeted alongside several snaps of herself and Ian.

“I didn’t post the pictures of my boyfriend because I thought that Justin Bieber wanted to ‘get with me,’” she told Buzzfeed. “I posted them in response to everyone commenting that I ‘ruined my chances with Justin by tweeting the screenshots.’ Either way I didn’t want a ‘chance’ because I am perfectly happy with my boyfriend.”
While Jessica and Ian think Justin’s message was “random and shocking,” they have no hard feelings for the “Sorry” singer. “We didn’t think Justin Bieber was being creepy, the gym did respond to him on Instagram,” she explained. “I don’t think he had any inappropriate intentions by simply asking who I was.”
