The past week has not been a good one for Disney Channel star Selena Gomez — and it has in many ways echoed her 2011 thus far. Ever since the rumors starting exploding around the internet regarding her relationship with Justin Bieber, everyone has been more than a little bit on edge Now, some are even taking it so far that Gomez has been forced to fight rumors of all sorts that are largely being crafted for publicity.
First, we have an alleged topless photo that has worked its way around the internet — one that Selena’s representatives are already taking legal action against. TMZ reports that not only is the photo not real, but insinuates that it was largely created simply to jump on the bandwagon of people looking to defame Gomez ever since the Bieber rumors started.
As for this speculation, we have a report from Celebuzz about a supposed incident at Jessica Jarrell’s Sweet 16 in Los Angeles where Bieber was “sitting in Selena’s lap.” Did it happen? It doesn’t seem to be more than anything innocenet if it did, but Jarrell claims that she “never saw” anything like what is being through around the internet these days.
Do you really think we are at the time now when people should just leave Selena alone? You can see new photos of Selena to the left, but they are from an innocent Golden Globes post-party.
