Say WHAT?! Despite knowing it would devastate her friend, Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner first pursued a relationship with Justin Bieber in 2014 because her mom, Kris Jenner, urged her to do so!
This story just keeps getting more twisted! Kendall Jenner, 19, and Justin Bieber’s, 21, hook up made Selena Gomez, 21, absolutely furious, and even ended the girls’ friendship. And it turns out Kris Jenner, 59, was actually the mastermind behind the whole thing, a new report claims!
Kris Jenner Forced Kendall Jenner, Justin Bieber Romance: How She Pushed Them Together
As manager of all her kids, Kris is always looking to do whatever it takes to keep her family in the spotlight, and when it came to Kendall, that meant a relationship with the Biebs!
The Kardashian matriarch is actually the one who pushed her teenage daughter to pursue Justin in order to further her modeling career, Life & Style reports. Kendall allegedly did just that after the 2014 Coachella Music Festival (over a year ago), and wound up in bed with the “Where Are U Now” singer — which Selena walked in on, the mag claims!
Since Selena and Justin were together at the time, the 22-year-old was completely devastated and furious at Kendall. “Selena was heartbroken and literally freaked out,” the mag’s source says. “For months, Selena sent [Kendall] angry texts and insulted her. She was really mean to Kendall, but who could blame her? She thought she was her friend.”
Coincidentally, just two days before this story came out, Selena and Kris reunited at the Met Gala on May 4. Photographers caught their red carpet moment, during which the “I Want You To Know” singer appeared to have a tear in her eye as she hugged the momager.
Considering Justin AND Kendall were both also at the Met Ball, it’s possible that Selena was having an emotional, anxiety-filled moment over seeing her ex and former friend, so she turned to Kris for comfort. Clearly she hadn’t yet heard that Kris may be the root of all her love triangle problems to begin with!
This isn’t the first time Selena has had a heart-to-heart with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, either. On Oct. 1, 2014, they bonded while flying home from Paris Fashion Week together — just after Kendall and Justin had gone on a romantic dinner date!
Oy, this is all SO exhausting! We just want everything to go back to normal between these three!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Kris pushing Kendall to date Justin? Do you think Selena, Kendall and Justin can ever all be friends again?
