Selena, Justin and Kendall have yet to be confirmed as guests to the Met Ball on May 4, but there’s definitely a possibility all three will be there — and Selena is absolutely DREADING seeing her ex and former friend together, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned!
This love triangle might get a whole lot messier come Monday! While nothing’s been confirmed, there’s pretty good evidence that Selena Gomez, 22, Justin Bieber, 21, and Kendall Jenner, 19 will all be at the Met Ball on May 4! But considering Kendall, Selena’s former BFF, and Justin, Selena’s ex, have been hooking up this year, the “Slow Down” singer is not looking forward to a possible confrontation.
Selena Gomez’s Met Ball Fear: Seeing Justin Bieber & Kendall Jenner
Things are far from perfect between Selena and Justin, but HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that it’s not her ex she’s so worried about seeing at the Met Ball.
“It’s Kendall that she’s dreading running into. Even worse — Kendall with Justin,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “If she goes, she would actually love for Justin to show up, too. That’s exciting for her. But not if he’s with Kendall.”
Selena and Kendall both attended the Met Ball last year, so it certainly wouldn’t be a shock if they went for Round Two. Meanwhile, the Biebs has never made an appearance at the buzzed-about event, but, he does have a high-profile fashion campaign with Calvin Klein this year and he’s starring in Zoolander 2, which could possibly film at the gala.
“If Justin and Kendall are together at the Met Ball, Selena’s decided she’s just going to do her best and rise above it,” our insider added.
And we know she’ll be looking drop-dead gorgeous if she attends — so she always has that going for her!
Kendall and Justin have been hanging out a lot this year, and their friendship even turned into a ‘friends-with-benefits‘ relationship. Selena was dating Zedd, 25, when this all began, but it was obviously still hard for her to see her ex and former friend hooking up.
To make matters worse, it turns out that casual kind of relationship is the same one Justin wants with her now that she’s single again.
“Justin gets what he wants all the time. He knows how to push her buttons and he only wants to see or talk to her when it benefits him,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Justin wants to hook up with her again, but he doesn’t want to date her right now. He knows it’s toxic, but he is down to hook up anytime.”
Yep, hooking up is just as far as it’s going to go if Selena wants any kind of relationship with Justin. The “Baby” singer will attend the highly-anticipated Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao on May 2, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that he has no plans to bring Selena.
“He is not going to make that kind of a gesture. He would never make that kind of a grand gesture for her anymore,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He would want it to be on his own terms if they got back together, but he doesn’t want to change enough for her. And he is certainly not starting to make a move to get her back by inviting her to the fight.”
Hopefully Selena make some other plans this weekend to take her mind off all of this!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Selena will have a showdown with Kendall and Justin at the Met Ball? Should she be dreading it?
