The heart wants what it wants, and it sounds like Selena Gomez’ heart might still want Justin Bieber a little bit. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the songstress lashed out at him after seeing him with Sofia Richie because she still ‘loves’ him. Here’s the scoop!
Selena Gomez, 23, shockingly attacked Justin Bieber, 22, on Instagram on Aug. 14 after he told fans to stop hating on his alleged new fling Sofia Richie, 17. We couldn’t help but wonder why Selena would inject herself into Justin’s drama yet again, and now we might have the answer.
“The reason why Selena is so upset is because she still loves Justin,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They were each others’ first love and there’s still a lot of emotion and attachment. That’s why Selena still watches him on social media and keeps tabs on him. Her emotions are not raw but they are still very tender and seeing Justin with Sofia really struck a nerve.” Poor baby! We definitely understand how it feels to see someone you were once so close with get close to someone new.
“When Justin fired back, she couldn’t handle it anymore,” the source continued. “It goes back to his odd behavior of the last several months that has her bewildered and concerned. That’s why she’s keeping an eye on him. Selena is stressed that Justin may have lost his way a little bit. She’s worried for Justin so she wanted to jab him and remind him of his roots where he came from.”
That would make sense, as she did remind Justin that his fans were there for him when nobody else was (and maybe low-key she hoped he would remember that the same is true of her.) After their on-and-off relationship at the beginning of 2016, we don’t think Selena wants to get back together, but she can still care about him and it can still hurt to see him with someone new. Feel better Selly!
