Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may no longer be an item, but the ‘Same Old Love’ singer will always have a soft spot for her former flame. HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that she still has a desire to keep him out of harm’s way.
Sometimes it’s hard to let go of what once was — especially for Selena Gomez, 23, and her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, 22, who have faced no shortages of hardships during their highly-publicized six-year relationship. With Justin making recent headlines for his Cleveland brawl on June 8, it has reportedly caused Sel to become even more worried about the “Company” singer’s decision making abilities now that she’s not around.
“She hates seeing him get in trouble all the time because she honestly feels she could have helped him and still could help him,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It is always an uphill battle for her because he is so stubborn, but she always feels that she should be there for him because in her mind they have such a strong connection. She really just wants him to be healthy and happy.”
If you have yet to hear of news regarding the Biebs’ post-NBA Finals debacle, the shocking video of him throwing blows with a 6-foot-5 man emerged shortly after the singer was also booed by fans in the Cleveland Cavaliers stadium. The fight began for an unknown reason possibly ranging from sport related trash-talking, ample photo requests or simply a dislike for the Purpose star. Luckily, Justin turned out perfectly fine after going toe-to-toe with a dude twice his size. He took to Instagram on June 10 with two black-and-white photos of his unscathed face reading: “not a scratch on this pretty boy” (the caption which he later deleted). Furthermore, he’s even reportedly “proud” of his actions, especially after being egged on by his friends who later referred to him as Floyd Mayweather on fight night.

Nonetheless, Selena can’t seem to give up on her ex-beau entirely, given their background and undeniable history together. She wants nothing more than to see him excel in his life and career, which involves him leaving all this drama to the side. “Selena hates seeing Justin get into fights,” a source told HollywoodLife.com. EXCLUSIVELY. “She thinks that it is really stupid and does nothing positive for him at all. She’s just thankful that’s he’s okay and it wasn’t anything more serious.” With Selena’s skyrocketing career and Revival tour in full swing throughout the summer, hopefully she can find a way to support Justin while keeping her own well-being in mind as well.
