In 24 hours Selena Gomez will testify in a deposition in a lawsuit filed by a paparazzo suing on-off beau Justin Bieber. Ahead of what is likely to be an invasive hearing, an apparent fall-out with the Jenner sisters and security concerns at her new Calabasas home — the starlet posted melancholy images to her Instagram account.
Selena Gomez appears to have the weight of the world on her shoulders going by changes at her Instagram account.
The brunette ‘unfollowed’ everyone on her Instagram feed today and uploaded four pensive photos between Monday to early Tuesday.
Possibly seeking guidance, the “Come & Get It” singer attended an Easter Sunday church service held by Pastor Judah Smith, who is known to both Bieber and Gomez.
During the service, Gomez posted a photo of the proceedings which is captioned: “He is risen, @judahsmith just thank you.”
Of her next three photos, one showed Selena looking fairly unhappy alongside a caption that reads,”I go back to, black,” and seems to be a nod to the late Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” and possibly a change in hair color.
Another Gomez-posted snap is a screenshot of an review about Mary J. Blige’s 2007 album Growing Pains, with the article covering how Blige dealt with insecurities and unhappiness.
The snapshot could be seen as Selena’s way of communicating how she feels to her over 8 million followers on the photo-sharing site.
“I got every material got every material thing I could ever need /I got the love from my fans that adore me /And I’m grateful /But my love for myself is lacking a little bit /I have to admit that I’m working on me,” read bridge lyrics to the song “Works in progress (Growing Pains.) “
Such lyrics may worry Gomez’s family and pals given that the 21-year-old voluntarily went into rehab for 14 days back in January, over what is thought to have been difficulties after her breakup with Bieber.
At press time, the last uncaptioned and darkened photo shows Gomez staring at the camera from a balcony by the Los Angeles oceanfront with an enigmatic expression on her face.

It’s all a far cry from Selena’s seemingly carefree visit to Coachella two weekends ago with Kylie and Kendall Jenner, and her meet-up with Bieber on the first Sunday of that weekend during which the Canadian performed onstage as the surprise guest of Chance The Rapper.
One week later, Selena has unfollowed everyone on her Instagram account and deleted all photos of the Jenners, including their hangout at Coachella and a birthday bash for Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs son’s Sweet 16 in West Hollywood on April 4.
Earlier today, the Spring Breakers actress was following 15 people. Now, Gomez is following no-one on Instagram.
As yet, no-one knows what has happened between the actress-singer and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars.

But Gomez — who recently fired her former manager parents last month and is now signed with WME and Brillstein — has a more pressing issue to deal with than social media shut-outs.
On Wednesday, April 23, Gomez is due to testify in a deposition in Los Angeles for a lawsuit filed against her on-off beau Justin Bieber by a paparazzo.
Paparazzo Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran claims Selena witnessed the then 18-year-old Biebs drop-kick him in the stomach of a parking lot at The Commons shopping center in Calabasas, California, back in May 2012.
Selena was on a date with Justin at the time and is said to have offered an apology to the shutterbug when she allegedly retrieved Bieber’s cell phone after the alleged altercation.
Gomez will be grilled by Duran’s lawyer about what she allegedly saw and heard, and will most likely be asked to reveal Justin’s feelings toward paparazzi and possibly private details about their relationship.

Into the mix of these worries, TMZ reports Gomez is having a perimeter gate erected around her new $3 million Calabasas, California, property after two recent trespass incidents by the same 20-year-old intruder.
Even though Selena’s neighborhood is already gated, the security step-up is to prevent more intrusions and give her a greater sense of protection.
Although Gomez was seen interacting closely with Bieber at Coachella, he has since flown to Tokyo, Japan, for a vacation.
On the eve of her deposition for of the paparazzo lawsuit, Gomez certainly seems to have a lot on her mind.
Fans of the singer (Selenators) trended #AlwaysWithYouSelena to show their support for the star.
