Selena Gomez: Justin Bieber Won't Control Me Like My Old Boyfriend Did! Was It Nick Jonas Or Taylor Lautner?

Wed, August 17, 2011 2:30pm EST by 102 Comments

Selena Gomez says she dated someone for a year who didn’t let her be herself and all her friends and family hated!

Selena Gomez normally stays very mum about her relationships, but the 19-year-old former Disney darling recently opened up about a boyfriend previous to Justin Bieber who didn’t treat her well at all. We hope it wasn’t either Taylor Lautner or Nick Jonas!

“I wasn’t myself for a year. I think that was really damaging. I felt like it was me who was always trying to be perfect for him,” Selena told Top of the Pops Magazine. “I always dressed nice. I don’t think he ever saw me in sweatpants — and I love sweatpants.”

She added, “I dare someone to try and change me again.”

Selena has had a slew of A-list boyfriends, including Taylor Lautner in 2009, when he was shooting New Moon and she was working on Ramona and Beezus, and Nick Jonas in 2008 and again in 2010.

The triple threat performer, who is currently on tour with her band, The Scene, shared some more about her mystery relationship, saying, “I’d always be well-mannered and go to his favourite restaurants or whatever. There was a point where I lost myself completely. I didn’t smile as much, I didn’t laugh as much. I wasn’t a goofball. I didn’t get up and dance like I usually do.”

Selena admits she changed herself for her old guy, but got back to normal shortly after they broke up. “And when that one ended, I didn’t know where I was,” she said. “But I got it back and was really happy. My family were happy to have me back.”

After watching Selena with Justin Bieber throughout the last several months, it’s obvious she loves to let loose and have a good time. The couple openly frolics on the beach, dines at low key restaurants and is always laughing and smiling. It’s nice to know Selena feels like she can finally be herself and doesn’t have to change for a guy!

Which boyfriend do YOU think she was talking about? Sound off below!

For all you guys that “Love” Nick J.
It has been confirmed she was talking about Nick.
So…
However, they were both young at the time. And Sel spoke very professionally and respectfully :)

Taylor Lautner and Selena Gomez never dated. Selena just wished that they could but they’re just best friends..so it’s probably Nick Jonas. But they are so perfect for each other! So NELENA LOVER FOREVER! :)

Or maybe it’s Nick Jonas. You know, because they’ve always used to hide.And Selena did changed for him.He’s perfectionist so he may wanted her to be perfect and never see her in sweatpants.Or maybe not. All we could do is guessing.And when they dated in 2008,she changed then for him.Then .. they reconciled in 2010 – year of no fear.He proved to be different person, and that she don’t have to change because she’s freaking awesome just the way she is.Nick realized his mistake.And in 2010 everything between them was fine but then they couldn’t spend much time together, they were really busy.. so it didn’t work out.And how we could guess, back then in 2010 Bieber and Gomez were friends.. so ” every time he done wrong, I was do shoulder you were crying on ” ( Justin Bieber – Fall ) We all could guess this song is about him and Selena. So that’s what basically happened the last time when Nelena broke up. Selena was crying on Bieber’s shoulder. They hang out, and we all know the story about the best friends that fall in love. In my opinion Nelena was love and they should’ve been together forever, so.. it’s like they’re soul mates and like they’re perfect match and born for each other. It’s just so pity that such a genuine and natural love died.But you know,when once there was a flame it could aways start a spark! :) Nelena Forever !

They might get married but they are too young and even when they grow up I don’t think it will work out. I adore them both sooooo much but Justin has girls throwing themselves at him left right and centre and I think he might end up cheating on Sel. Even so I hope whatever they do they are both very happy, LOVE YOU GUYS!!! :D xxxxxx

Justin is not the kind of guy to cheat on a girl.
i doubt he would ever cheat on ANYONE that is.

She said ALL of her friends hated her “bad” boyfriend, so it couldn’t be Nick, because two of Selena’s friends Miley and Demi (Yearh i know Demi is her best friend) and Miley and Nick are great friends, and Demi and Nick are best friends.

well heres my opionon i dont think any guy should change you, if ur famous or not .your ur own person and your the only one in control of you and your bondy and what you would want to do with it. My advice never let anyone control you . wether its ur boyfriend , girlfriend ,friend , bestfriend , sis , bro , cousin ,etc.Never let anyone control you, your ur own person amd u create the personality you set for urself . you should b nd live who u are nd who u wana b not wat someone else suggest b the person u are nd dont folow wat somone else is or wants to make you nd selena u rock ! i saw ur story on E! nd it was an incredible story i cant belive it

Even if they wanted to get married, I don’t think it would work out. They’re both too young, especially Justin Bieber.

I think it’s not up to us to decide if they should be together or not, that’s their own business. We shouldn’t judge, we don’t have the right to do so.

It’s easy to change for someone, hide yourself, so I can’t judge the one who made her change either. She chose to do so, even if I don’t believe it was her meaning. I don’t think one should blaime anyone for that…

You sound so stupid and judgemental. Who are you to judge Selena? & It’s obviously Nick Jonas because she has said before that with Nick she wasn’t herself and wasn’t happy. She changed herself for him and that’s why they originally broke up. Please go away with your judgemental, ignorant self.

Wow… you’re educated.
FYI, there is no 3 in Selena…And there is an r in different….
And an a in that.
And no z in is.
And there is a c in back.
Please go to school instead of wasting time worrying about the life of famous people. You may think Selena is ugly on the outside, but who are you to talk when you are hideous on the inside???

It was Nick. She’s already told this story before and she didn’t date Taylor for a year anyway. And her and Justin getting married? Too soon to tell

Anyone who is slating her is an idiot. This isn’t about how pretty she is/is not and it makes you sound ridiculously jealous.

You have to realise whatever boyfriend she was talking about she was still very young at the time so don’t you care call her weak.

No, but the thing is it sounds like she’s putting the blame on her ex, which is pretty obvious that it’s Nick.

She keeps on parading this sob-story, but the thing is- SHE became whom SHE THOUGHT that her ex wanted. Not she became what her ex wanted. What she THOUGHT her ex wanted. Nick wasn’t a “controlling boyfriend” and certainly didn’t “treat her bad”, it was all Selena.
