Actress Selena Gomez opened up recently about the overflow of Twitter hate she has received from boyfriend Justin Beiber’s fans. The 18-year-old, who noted that she doesn’t really talk about online attacks, told New York’s Z100 that it has definitely affected her.
“It hurts, it really does. I feel like I’m not doing anything wrong,” she said. “I’ve been best friends with him for a very long time, so it is very hard. It does hurt my feelings a lot.”
Gomez said she tries not to focus on it.
“I have such a strong family and I have great fans,” she said.
Even though it hurts, Gomez understands where her boyfriend’s fans are coming from. She recalled hating actress Katie Cassidy when she dated actor Jesse McCartney.
"I have to agree with them sometimes. I loved Jesse McCartney. I was obsessed with him. He dated Katie Cassidy when he was 16 or 17. I hated her, absolutely hated her. I was mortified that he was with Katie and I wanted to be with him," said Gomez of McCartney. “He was my screensaver – and it was horrible. But you know what, I just did a movie with Katie Cassidy, and she was the nicest person in the whole world!”
