Talk about awkward! Selena Gomez was pretty determined to avoid Justin Bieber at the Tori Kelly concert, and she was lucky to have pal Ed Sheeran helping her out.
Selena Gomez, 22, and Justin Bieber, 21, are definitely not interested in staying friends now that they are done for good, claims a new report. As new details emerge about her awkward run-in with Justin while out with Ed Sheeran, 24, on Thursday, June 25, it’s pretty clear that the former lovebirds are steering clear of each other.
While Selena clearly had a blast with Ed on their night out on the town, their time together wasn’t all smooth sailing. During the Tori concert at The Nice Guy that night, Selena stuck by Ed’s side — especially after realizing that her ex, Justin, was also in attendance with a large group of friends. Apparently, both Selena and Justin spotted each other at one point and neither one of them made an attempt to say hello, reports Us Weekly.
“Selena came with Ed. Bieber came with Scooter [Braun],” an eyewitness at the show told the outlet. “Justin and Selena each noticed that the other person was there, but they didn’t go over and say hello.” Eek. That must have been so awkward.
However, Selena was super lucky to have Ed with her for the night. Although he is also pretty friendly with Justin, he stayed loyal to Selena — and their mutual BFF, Taylor Swift — by keeping her mind off of her ex. After the show, the pair left together and were spotted stopping at a 7-11 for some late night snacks. Selena needs more men like Ed in her life, that’s for sure!
