Selena and Taylor’s friendship has been strained since the ‘Come & Get It’ singer reunited with Justin, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, but there’s a few good reasons why Selena favors the Biebs over T-Swizzle!
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Selena Gomez, 22, hang out with her supposed good friend, Taylor Swift, 24. While we could easily blame it on the fact that Selena’s been spending a lot of time with her boyfriend, Justin Bieber, 20, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that there’s more to the story.
Selena Gomez: Justin Bieber Makes Her Feel ‘Important’
How could Selena favor Justin over her good friend, after he’s put her through so much heartache in the past, you may ask? Well, don’t be so quick to think that Selena should put her “sister” before her “mister.”
“Despite Justin’s flirtations with other girls, Selena still feels like Justin is a truer friend than almost anyone else she knows. She feels like most of her celebrity friends are not legitimate. Justin makes her feel important,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
That may seem like a diss toward Taylor, but the “Shake It Off” singer hasn’t exactly been the most supportive friend.
“Taylor is off and on and in her own world. She’s friendly with Selena when it’s convenient for her. They rarely see each other. Plus, every five minutes, Taylor ends up getting upset with Selena over Justin. They are more like acquaintances with similar interests than besties,” our source continues.
Luckily, Selena gets along well with Justin’s friends.
Selena Gomez: Spending Time With Justin Bieber & Friends
Recently, Selena hung out with Justin and a group of his friends, including Cody Simpson, 17, and the Biebs’ former fling Chantel Jeffries, 20, on Sept. 19. They all dined together at Nobu restaurant in Los Angeles.
Selena and Justin also went on a bowling date with a few of his friends on Sept. 17.
We don’t blame Selena for spending a lot of her time with Justin. They clearly love each other and he makes he feel “important.”
