Selena Gomez is an American actress who has won countless awards during her music and acting career.

Next to her movie career, she also started to venture into music and acted as the singer of Selena Gomez & the Scene. Together they released a range of successful dance hits. Selena’s busy career has slowed down a bit after she was diagnosed with Lupus and needed to take a break. However, she’s gone through several interesting phases in her dating life that have been thoroughly reported on by the media. Keep reading to find out more about how Selena Gomez’s life developed and where she is now.
Selena v.s. Justin
The romantic relationship between Selena and Justin Bieber is one of the most discussed in celebrity land. Their relationship was a typical on-again off-again situation. Selena and Justin started dating in 2009. Unlike most of us that find partners through the luckycrush.live video chat, Tinder, or other dating platforms, Selena and Justin met through an introduction set up by their managers. The pair instantly felt a spark and started dating pretty soon after their introduction. Selena was only 18 at this time and Justin had just turned 16. After dating quietly they made their official introduction as a couple in 2011.
Selena and Justin have had a tumultuous relationship as they broke up several times during their relationship, the first break-up occurring only two years after the start. During their relationship, they have declared their love for each other by numerous serenades and appearances at award shows together. In 2010, Selena stated that she “felt more like a big sister” to Justin, confirming their break-up. However, not long after their break-up they were spotted on a romantic date at IHOP. Their relationship went on and off a few times, until their final break-up in 2018. In total, their relationship lasted five years.
Selena v.s. Hailey
Only six months after their break-up, Justin got engaged to the model and daughter of Stephen Baldwin, Hailey and a marriage followed promptly. Selena and Hailey Baldwin have had a feud ever since, fueled by the aggression of both of their fan bases. Their feud is comparable to the one between Pete Davidson and Kanye West, after Pete started to date famous socialite Kim kardashian. Because Justin proposed to Hailey only six months after his break-up with Selena, many accused Hailey of “stealing Justin” from Selena.
Many of Selena’s fans turned to the internet and gathered “proof” of Hailey’s obsession with Justin and Selena, which started a full blown internet war between the fans of the two. Even though Selena and Hailey have done everything they could to shut down the hate and accusations, including posing together, their fans kept going at it, only spiraling more and more into the feud. When other celebrities, such as Kylie Jenner started to get involved, the drama became even bigger.
Selena took over Kylie Jenner as the most followed woman on Instagram, after which the media reported that Kylie was making fun of Selena with the help of Hailey. Selena responded that it was simply unnecessary to assume that. Unfortunately, her comments don’t seem to help and drama is still going on to this day
