“She’s one of my best friends, and you just want to have your girlfriend’s back, so that’s what I did.

As previously reported, Selena was pictured looking teary-eyed at the May 4 event, so we can certainly understand why Vanessa thought it was best to keep her away from Justin.

Selena was actually seen leaning on Kris Jenner for support, and a source EXCLUSIVELY told how Kris helped out our girl, Sel.

“Kris gave her a pep talk. She told her to be strong and hold her head up high. She told her she believes in her,” our source said. “Selena’s grateful that Kris acknowledged how difficult the night was, but it made her get very emotional because it brought up all the hurt feelings.”

Running into Justin must have been hard, but we’re happy to hear that Selena has great friends like Kris and Vanessa supporting her.
