Selena Gomez kicks Justin Bieber to the curb!
I love Selena Gomez, so you can imagine how I felt when I read all the rumors about sexy 19-year-old Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin stepping out with Selenita's man Justin Bieber. I mean, come on!
Selena, 20, is a great example for little bicultural Latinas across America and she has always kept her image free of scandals or the kinds of pratfalls that seem to plague other teen stars. For example, she's never run anyone over in an SUV, she has never been arrested for DUI, she even dresses for the red carpet is demure and classic outfits. It's sort of amazing when you think about it. Selena and the Biebs first went public with their relationship back in February 2011 when they attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party together in matching black and red Dolce & Gabbana outfits.
I was glad to hear that Selenita decided to kick Bieber, 18, to the curb after he was spotted out and about with Palvin--cause for real? She does NOT need that drama. Sure, Selena and the Biebs seemed serious, he gave her a promise ring and everything, but I never really liked them together. Selena always seemed way more mature than he was and to be honest, sometimes Bieber comes across as a snot-nosed punk. Our Selena, quite frankly, deserves better.
It seems like she feels the same way, because after a pretty extended period of absence due to their crazy schedules, it seems like Biebs stepping out with Palvin to catch The Lion King on Broadway after filming the huge Victoria's Secret holiday fashion show was the last straw.
They broke up about a week ago, a source told E! News. "Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship," the source said.
I'm sure their fans are shedding a few tears today, but I'm honestly glad that Selena is free to meet new guys. Who do you think she should date next? I'd like to point her in the direction of an up-and-coming Mexican actor named Diego Boneta (star of Rock of Ages). He's super hot, Latino and actually a year older than her! They would make the cutest couple, right?
