Selena Gomez has had a successful year in terms of her career, with her Revival Tour taking her around the world and fans loving her singing skills, sexy style and enthusiasm. But when it comes to relationships, it’s been rough at times, with an unexpected social media battle with off-again, on-again boyfriend Justin Bieber that included cheating claims, allegations of cheating with Orlando Bloom, and now an entanglement in the drama of Angelina Jolie’s and Brad Pitt’s divorce.
Selena Gomez's 2016 has led to some truly shocking moments! https://t.co/R9iIz4ypMl— HollywoodLife (@HollywoodLife) September 4, 2016
Noting that there’s still time for more bombshells to come from the “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” singer in 2016, Hollywood Life named Selena getting “cozy” with Orlando Bloom as one of her biggest shockers this year.
May marked some milestones for Gomez, starting when she grabbed a sign that a fan brought to one of her concerts. Reading “Marry Justin [Bieber],” the fan signage quickly turned to trash when Selena tossed it after crumpling it up.
That same month, she was spotted canoodling with Orlando in Las Vegas. In addition to getting very close in a nightclub, they were seen leaving together. With Bloom dating Katy Perry, some speculated that Orlando was cheating on Perry with Selena.
The cheating allegations involving Gomez didn’t end in May, however. In August, Selena became involved in a social media war with Bieber, and the Instagram battle included cheating claims on both ends, according to E News.
The war started between the two with an argument between Justin and his fans. Bieber got so annoyed with their hostility toward some of his photos that included Sofia Richie (his then-girlfriend) that he issued a warning that he would make his account private.
Showing that Selena was still keeping up with Justin, she posted in the comments section a recommendation that he stop sharing photos of his girlfriend. Bieber battled right back.
“It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way,” Justin wrote.
That made Gomez retaliate, accusing him of cheating.
“Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive.”
And that’s when another cheating allegation involving Selena exploded, with Justin dropping the bombshell.
“I cheated…Oh and I forgot about you and Zayn [Malik]?” slammed Bieber.
Now, in yet another cheating shocker that involves Gomez, Angelina Jolie was reportedly going through Brad Pitt’s phone when she discovered photos of Selena and “countless other women,” according to a source cited by Hollywood Life.
Describing Jolie as “snooping” on Brad’s phone, the report also revealed that the discovery of those photos was one of the reasons that Angelina filed for divorce from Pitt. During the past few years, Jolie had become increasingly worried about Brad’s “dalliances.”
That concern over his flings culminated in finding the pictures of those women, including the 24-year-old “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” singer. Jolie felt baffled, according to the source.
“[Angelina] understands why women would want to meet him, but why would he have photos with these random women? She couldn’t understand what he was getting out of that,” revealed the insider.
In addition to Angelina allegedly discovering photos of Gomez and other women on Brad’s phone, Jolie reportedly was jealous when she saw an Instagram picture showing the 24-year-old with Pitt, reported Teen Vogue.
That photo, which Selena posted eight months ago, doesn’t show her kissing, cuddling or even trying to hide her proximity to Pitt, however. Despite the allegations that the picture made Angelina angry, it just shows Brad talking to the young singer after the 2016 Golden Globes.
“just discussing #TheBigShort,” clarified Gomez in the caption.
In the wake of claims that Selena somehow was responsible for Pitt’s and Jolie’s divorce, some fans have added new comments to the photo, defending her.
“if y’all over here saying she’s the reason she caused brad pitts divorce…. over a picture that was posted on january… you really f**king stupid” [sic], posted one fan.
