Poor girl! After showing off a curvier frame while on vacation in Mexico, Selena Gomez has been forced to confront mean comments from online bullies. While she wears a smile on her face to hide the pain, Selena secretly feels crushed by all the attacks on her body.
Selena Gomez, 22, is a gorgeous girl — no matter what size she is. While the pop star has always maintained a slimmer frame, she’s displayed much more ample assets while hanging out on the beach recently. Even though Selena says she is content with her current size, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the Latina beauty’s self esteem has taken a serious dip since being bothered by fat shamers.
Selena Gomez On Fat Shaming — Body Bullies Hurt Her Self Esteem
Fat shamers attacking Selena? Time to back off! While Justin Bieber‘s ex has fought back against body bullies, claiming confidence, via Instagram; a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that it’s all just a front. Selena’s really upset by those who have criticized her recent weight gain.
“Despite her public posts about loving herself, Selena is struggling with people talking about her weight gain,” our source says. “She’s saying all the right things, but it’s hard to hear people call you overweight. It really hurts and crushes her self esteem.”
Totally not cool. Selena looks beautiful — and she tells herself that in the below Instagram post. Let’s just hope the brunette stunner starts to believe her own words.

While it’s been hard for Miss Gomez to keep her head held high recently, the singer-actress has a great support system around to help her get through the tough times.
“Selena’s family and friends have been surrounding her with love and support which is great. No one wants to see her fall,” the insider explains. “It’s important that she keep working on music and lining up more film projects. the last thing her friends and family wants is for her to sit around and obsess about her weight or her haters or even worse Justin.”
Even though Selena has her friends and family around to help lift her spirits up, there’s still one part of her life that’s keeping the 22-year-old blue. Yep, Selena’s lonely without a boyfriend.
“Selena has very little interaction with Zedd anymore. It’s as if a huge part of her life has just disappeared. She leaned on him emotionally and talked to him every single day for months, even when they were apart. Now, they barely talk or text and that makes her pretty sad. They are still friendly, but Zedd is just busy with his life and career,” the source says of the Texas-native’s most recent ex.
And it’s not just Sel’s lack of Zedd that’s causing her heartbreak. The Biebs, too.
“Selena has talked and texted with Justin but it’s clear it’s not going anywhere. It’s like she’s engaging in it just because she doesn’t know what to do with herself right now,” the source adds.
Doesn’t Selena know the most important relationship she has is the one with herself?
