After dear friend Christina Grimmie was fatally shot while signing autographs for fans, Selena Gomez is considering canceling all her upcoming meet and greets, a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
In the wake of singer Christina Grimmie‘s assassination by a deranged fan after her June 10 concert in Orlando, Florida, Selena Gomez, 22, is reconsidering the safety of her own meet and greets. Selena’s beloved friend was murdered while signing autographs, and now Selena is contemplating canceling her upcoming meet and greets to protect herself and her fans, according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Selena is obviously broken up over the entire tragedy, and she feels that for her safety, and her fans safety, that it might be best to cancel all future meet and greets. She’s weighing the pros and cons of it all, but she really is highly considering canceling or drastically changing how things are run to make sure everyone is safe and sound,” the source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
This is so scary. Selena is being cautious after Christina’s death, because she doesn’t want this tragedy to happen again — especially in front of her fans. The details of Christina’s murder are so disturbing. Christina, according to an eyewitness at the meet and greet, was welcoming her killer, Kevin James Loibl, 27, to her merch table “with open arms” when he took out a gun and shot her dead. Sweet Christina thought he was just another fan who wanted to share a fun moment with her after her show, but he had sinister intentions.
“My back was to Christina but I kept turning to check on how long we had to meet her,” Destiny Rivera, 20 told Daily Mail. “The one guy in front of us was walking up to meet her. Her arms were open, waiting to greet him with a hug. Then there was a sound of three pops, like balloons. People had brought balloons to the show and the security guards were popping them so at first I thought it was that.”
