How Selena Gomez Reportedly Feels Amid Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s Second Wedding
Seeing your ex get married can be really awkward. Regardless of how long it’s been since you were together or how much your feelings have changed for them, it’s not always easy to see someone you used to date commit to someone else… forever.
That’s why many of us can’t help but wonder how Selena Gomez is doing amid Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s second wedding. After all, she and Bieber dated for so long that many people thought she would wind up in the model’s place.
So, what’s up? How does the “Wolves” singer feel amid the second ceremony?
Gomez’s reported feelings revealed
A source opened up about them to Us Weekly on Sept. 30, the same day of Bieber and Baldwin’s wedding. The insider claimed that Gomez is in a “good place” and “knows she’s better off without Justin.”
“She is in a good place,” the source said. “She has been hanging out with old friends and family and keeping herself out of the limelight and away from public places where she might feel bombarded or overwhelmed.”
The insider noted that Gomez, who has struggled with depression and anxiety, is doing much better thanks to her inner circle.
“Selena has an amazing support system and couldn’t be more grateful,” the insider added. “All of these things have helped drastically reduce her anxiety and have been huge proponents in her healing process.”
“Selena knows she’s better off without Justin, and that it’s the healthiest decision for her,” the insider continued. “She is open to dating, but right now she is solely focused on herself and enjoying life to the best of her ability, and getting back to being the Selena that she and all of her close ones knew prior to dating Justin.”
A recap of Gomez and Bieber’s relationship
About two years after they met, the singers went public with their relationship in 2011 at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party. From there, they were basically inseparable, hitting nearly every award show and red carpet together. But they broke up in 2012, marking the beginning of an off-and-on relationship.
In 2017, they were seemingly better than ever. But by March of the following year, sources reported that they’d decided to give each other “space.”
“Justin and Selena are giving each other some space right now, but are still talking all the time,” E! News reports. “It appears as if the two are down, but not out.”
But, unfortunately for fans, they officially broke up that May.
In June of 2018, Bieber moved on with Baldwin, whom he also dated off-and-on over the years. They got married that September following a two-month engagement.
Did Gomez attend the second wedding?
It appears that she did not attend. It’s unclear why, but we know that, in addition to hanging with her loved ones, Gomez has been working on new music.
But Bieber’s other ex, Caitlin Beadles, was there. Cosmopolitan reports that Bieber and Beadles dated for a year after meeting in 2008.
There were a bunch of other people who attended the Sept. 30 event, too, including Kendall Jenner, Usher, Jaden Smith, Joan Smalls, and Scooter Braun. Many of them shared photos of the ceremony on social media.
Here’s wishing all parties the very best moving forward.
