So, what was really behind Selena Gomez’s top secret phone call to her ex, Justin Bieber? The reason is definitely not the one you were expecting!
Selena Gomez Called Justin Bieber — Why She Really Called Him
To be a fly on the wall during that phone call, am I right, Jelena fans? But, seriously — what made Selena pick up the phone and dial Justin’s number after all of this time apart?
“She‘s hoping he will convince the roasters to keep her name out of the jokes,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about why Selena called Justin recently. Eek!
In fact, Selena was so adamant about trying to get Justin on board with protecting her from the comedians who will be roasting him, she made sure to tell her boyfriend, Zedd, about the call before even picking up the phone. Thankfully, Zedd was totally into the idea.
“Selena explained to Zedd that reaching out to Justin was about the upcoming roast,” our source explained. “He completely understands.”
Selena’s Scared She’ll Be The Butt Of The Joke
Although it wasn’t her longing for his love and affection that sparked Selena to make the call, can you really blame her for trying to avoid being a part of his roast? After all, comedian Chris D’Elia already told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that he’s planning on bringing up Justin’s most infamous ex-girlfriend.
“Selena does not want to be the butt off any of the jokes and has been really worried about it,” our source shared with us EXCLUSIVELY. “She has done her best to stay out of the drama and just wants to keep it that way.”
So now it’s only a matter of time before we find out if Selena’s pleading worked.
