Selena Gomez is opening up about her her on-again, off-again relationship with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, and recently revealed the emotional abuse she had to get past during the time they were together.
In a recent interview with NPR, the singer discussed her ups and downs with Bieber, and their final breakup in March 2018.
“I’ve found the strength in it,” she said. “It’s dangerous to stay in a victim mentality. And I’m not being disrespectful, I do feel I was a victim to certain abuse.”
When asked if she specifically meant “emotional abuse,” Gomez responded, “Yes.”
She continued: “I had to find a way to understand it as an adult. And I had to understand the choices I was making. As much as I definitely don’t want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt and I’ve found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible.”
Despite Justin moving on so quickly following their breakup and marrying #HaileyBaldwin a year later, Selena says “It’s not a hateful song; it’s a song that is saying — I had something beautiful and I would never deny that it wasn’t that,” Gomez added. “It was very difficult and I’m happy it’s over. And I felt like this was a great way to just say, you know, it’s done, and I understand that, and I respect that, and now here I am stepping into a whole other chapter.”
What y’all think Hailey gonna say when she reads this?
