Selena Gomez Implies Justin Bieber Was Emotionally Abusive

Selena Gomez had a rare moment where she opened up about her previous relationship with Justin Bieber. 

While speaking on “Lose You To Love Me”, her first No. 1 single from her latest album Rare, Selena Gomez states:

“I’m very proud of it. It has a different meaning to me now from when I wrote it. I felt I didn’t get a respectful closure, and I had accepted that, but I know I needed some way to just say a few things that I wish I had said. 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. 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.”

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber started dating in 2010 and were off on until they went their separate ways for good in early 2018. Justin Bieber is now married to model Hailey Baldwin Bieber. When asked if her “Lose You To Love Me” song was saying farewell to Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez said,

“You had to get the name in, I get it. I’ve found the strength in it. 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…”

She explained further and confirmed she was referring to emotional abuse.

“Yes, and I think that it’s something that — 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.”
