Selena Gomez may have announced her career hiatus over one month ago, but she continues to make headlines due to her possible ties to Brad Pitt and her ongoing drama with ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber.
In one recent report, Selena Gomez was said to have been featured in photos found on Pitt’s phone prior to his wife Angelia Jolie’s divorce filing.
“Angelina Jolie, who earlier this month filed for divorce from actor Brad Pitt, reportedly decided to split from him after she found photographs of singer Selena Gomez and some other women on his phone,” the Tribune Reporter revealed to readers on October 5.
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on September 19, just weeks after Selena Gomez officially canceled her Revival World Tour following a show in Auckland, New Zealand. Jolie and Pitt had been married for two years and share six children together, sons Maddox, Pax, and Knox, and daughters Shiloh, Zahara, and Vivienne.

Selena Gomez revealed she would be taking some time off to focus on her mental health after experiencing complications from Lupus, including depression, while on tour with a statement to her fans on August 30.
“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” Selena Gomez said in a statement to People Magazine. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”
Selena Gomez’s announcement came on the heels of a feud on Instagram with her former boyfriend, Justin Bieber. However, Gomez didn’t mention Bieber in her statement and another source told the magazine that Gomez’s decision to cut her tour short was not the result of drug or alcohol use, as some rumors have suggested.
Selena Gomez continued on, explaining that her head-on approach to tackling her mental health struggles was the best option for her.
“I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”
Prior to the rumors regarding her alleged relationship with Pitt, which were reportedly prompted by a photo she shared on Instagram earlier this year while attending the Golden Globe Awards, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber engaged in a messy dispute online.
After the “Cold Water” singer shared a photo of himself and his former girlfriend, Sofia Richie, on his page, he was met with backlash from fans who didn’t have nice things to say about his latest love. In response, Bieber threatened to make his Instagram account private and said his followers weren’t really fans if they were going to treat his friends poorly.
After seeing what her ex-boyfriend had written to his fans, Selena Gomez posted a comment on his page, which reminded him that his fans have been with him from the start. Gomez also told Bieber his fans loved him. However, the comment didn’t sit well with Bieber who immediately accused Gomez of using him for attention and suggested she may have cheated on him with Zayn Malik.
Also during their feud, Selena Gomez claimed to have forgiven Bieber for cheating on her “multiple” times.
