Selena Gomez, 23, is having a lot of fun with One Direction‘s Irish hottie, Niall Horan, 22. But, HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY why the “Good For You” singer is trying so hard to keep their relationship private. Unfortunately, it all comes back to Justin Bieber, 21.

“Selena is playing down her blossoming relationship with Niall because she desperately wants to protect it,” a source close to the star tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. She doesn’t want her romance with Niall to be open to public scrutiny because she’s afraid it will eventually destroy what they have.”
By the sound of it, Selena’s highly publicized on-again/off-again relationship with Justin has scarred her. The source continued with, “Selena doesn’t want another Justin Bieber fiasco. She doesn’t want any negativity around the relationship.” Poor Sel.
Even though she’s trying to keep her blossoming relationship with Niall under wraps, the pair are having trouble staying out of the spotlight — especially when they are together. On Sunday, Dec. 13, Selena was spotted hanging out backstage at The X Factor in the UK while Niall and his One Direction mates gave their last performance as a group before going on hiatus. Later that very same night, Selena and Niall were spotted leaving the same after party together. Whoops!
