They may not be together anymore, but that doesn’t mean Selena Gomez has stopped caring about Justin Bieber. In fact, she’s caught wind of her ex’s onstage meltdown in Oslo on Oct. 29, and has already reached out to show her support, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Selena Gomez is always going to be there for Justin Bieber, 21, — even now that they’re broken up. That’s why she’s just assured him that she’s only ‘a phone call away’ whenever he’s feeling the pressure, which is exactly what happened during his show in Norway on Oct. 29. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop. To hear more about Justin Bieber, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
“Selena is worried about Justin,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She reached out to his mom and left him a message letting him know she’s only a phone call away. She thinks the pressure of the new album is getting to him and wants to reassure him that his true success as a human being is not dependent on the success of his album.”
Justin is working hard to make a comeback with the upcoming release of Purpose, but with everything happening all at once, the stress really seems to have gotten to him. The 21-year-old got incredibly frustrated with fans in the front row of his Oslo show last night, and officially reached his breaking point — he totally stormed right off the stage. Yikes!
The Biebs took to Instagram almost immediately to apologize for the situation, but with his fans so frustrated, it might’ve been too little too late. “Sadly it’s been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be ‘on’ as they would say for cameras, fans, etc.,” he wrote. “In no way did I mean to come across mean, but chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen.”
Clearly worried, Selena is just set on making sure that her ex doesn’t worry too much about the success of Purpose. There are so many more important things! “She wishes someone was with him to help him get some perspective,” our source adds. “She knows how much this album means to him, but thinks he’s putting way too much pressure on himself with such black-and-white thinking that this is either a fresh start or the end of his career.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think Selena should be so worried about Justin? Or does she need to let him finally figure this stuff out for himself?
