Just one year ago, we could’ve guessed that Selena Gomez would be hanging out with one of three people on the Fourth of July — her boyfriend, Justin Bieber, or one of her besties — like Taylor Swift or Demi Lovato. But this year, it looks like Selena won’t celebrate Independence Day with any of those people.
It’s safe to say that Selena Gomez, 21, is having a rough summer so far. On top of dealing with the drama that is her on-and-off relationship with Justin Bieber, 20, Selena also has to deal with a few of her friendships seeming to fall apart.
Selena Gomez Alone On Fourth Of July: Taylor Swift & Justin Bieber Leave Her Be
Selena’s maybe-boyfriend Justin is in Miami, Florida right now — and he spent today partying on a yacht with pretty girls! On top of that, his ex crush Chantel Jeffries was on a flight to Miami just this morning — she might be heading south to hang with the Biebs. Selena’s been “hysterical in tears” about Justin flirting with other girls.
It looks like the Justin drama has caused some of Selena’s friends to create a distance, too. On July 2, Selena’s longtime friend Demi Lovato, 21, officially unfollowed Selena on Twitter. “Demi doesn’t need any extra drama, she’s learned from her own recovery to lose the people that bring her down and Selena is to much of a headache,” a source tells us about why Demi stopped following her longtime friend.
And that’s not all. Taylor Swift, 24, who hasn’t been seen hanging with Sel for more than a month, has been spending her Fourth of July weekend with actress Jaime King. Jaime posted an Instagram video of Taylor being silly under the sun while swimming in a pool! Taylor is openly a non-Belieber, and it looks like Justin has torn this friendship apart yet again.
We really feel for Selena right now, even though we don’t blame her friends for moving on. So many people have been in a situation before where they love a boy SO much that they only focus on him. And when that happens, sometimes friendships end — and that’s really sad. It seems like that’s happened to Sel right now!
Justin Bieber Wants An Open Relationship With Selena Gomez
While Justin flirts with other girls — both on yachts and online — he is trying to get Selena to have an open relationship with him! While Justin loves hanging with other girls like Chantel, “he still wants to be with Selena too,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He wants to have his cake and eat it too.”
Wow — we hope the Jelena drama is resolved soon. And we hope that despite not hanging with Justin, Demi or Tay this weekend, Selena has fun with her other friends and forgets about being hurt by Justin.
Who do YOU think Selena will spend her holiday weekend with, HollywoodLifers? And do you hope Sel will reunite with Demi and Taylor soon? We sure do. Let us know what you think about all of this!
