AceShowbiz - Selena Gomez is having a lot of fun without Justin Bieber in Australia. The 25-year-old singer/actress was photographed goofing around with another man during her vacation Down Under while she and her on-again/off-again boyfriend Justin are taking a break.
The former Disney darling was soaking up the sun on a yacht in Sydney on Monday, March 19. Wearing a white tank top on top of her bikini, she was seen getting playful with one of her male pals, who is identified as Johnny Rays.
They were all smiles as he pretended to push her off the back of the ship. In another snap, Johnny, who went shirtless and sported blue swimming trunks, hugged Selena who was wrapped in a blue towel.

Selena is in Australia to attend a Hillsong Church conference. Johnny being with Selena in Australia is not without a reason. He is a brand manager for one of the church's bands called Young & Free, and works with Youth Pastors Peter & Laura Toggs.
Johnny, who is also friends with Selena's on-/off-boyfriend Justin, is actually based in Sydney. He grew up as part of the Sydney City Campus of Hillsong Church. According to Hillsong's website, he "studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, before taking a position as a Project Manager in a Sydney-based design agency. Johnny volunteered in Hillsong Church's Film & TV team for several years before taking on a role as the Sydney City Campus Film & TV Oversight in April 2011, where his responsibilities included coordinating a team of volunteers right through to changing projector bulbs."
It's unclear why Justin, who attends the same church as Selena, is not attending the Hillsong Church conference in Australia. The Canadian pop star chose to stay back in Los Angeles, being spotted walking around West Hollywood alone on Sunday.
Selena is reportedly taking time to herself after it was revealed that she is taking a break in from Justin. A source said, "Selena is very delicate. Her 'comeback' to the spotlight has been tough, especially with the interest in her personal life with Justin and her mother."
