It’s hard to be the girlfriend of the most famous pre-pubescent tween heartthrob! Selena Gomez has always been a great celeb—mostly modest and polite, with a little bit of “I’m young and alive and want to have fun” mixed in. But after she found out she was being used for her fame, nice girl disappeared! Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson begged Selena to help her land a spot in the new movie Spring Breakers. Selena thought she was just helping a friend—at the time, Ashley was dating Justin Bieber’s best friend Ryan Good. But once Ashley got the part, she dumped Ryan and started chasing James Franco like a mad stalker. Now, Selena is pissed and wants nothing to do with her.
An insider explained, “Selena feels used and kind of punched in the face seeing as though she got Ashley the role and Ashley just used the opportunity to break her friend’s heart . . . Ashley practically begged Selena to get her the part. She did, because she thought they were all friends, but it was clear early on that Ashley had something going on with James.” Catfight! I guess that film is a cruel business, and you can’t move up if you’re not willing to step on people. Selena is so young, she needs to learn to be more wary of her friends, and this has certainly taught her a lesson.
After the film wrapped, “Ashley told Ryan they needed to slow down, and then booked a flight to New York City To go see James’ art gallery showing. Selena is pissed that she went out of her way to vouch for Ashley.” We hope that Selena will develop a thicker skin after all this. You can’t trust everyone— some people are selfish and they’ll do anything for fame and money! Do you think Selena should forgive her?
