Selena Gomez is still in the middle of dealing with all the angsty feelings from her on again, off again relationship with Justin Bieber, and it got the best of her during Taylor Swift’s star-studded 25th birthday party.
According to US Weekly, the pint size actress/pop star couldn’t hold it together during Swift’s birthday celebration in New York City last Friday, Dec. 12. During the outing, which was held at Swift’s Tribeca apartment, several of the partygoers like Beyoncé, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake mingled with each other as they chowed down on pizza, sushi and beer. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Gomez was able to take her mind off the Biebster during the party.
An insider tells the outlet that at one point in the evening, Gomez started crying and shouted, “No one understands me! My boyfriend doesn’t even understand me.” It was at this moment on the upper terrace that fellow bystanders like Sam Smith just stared at the singer. We’re already feeling secondhand embarrassment for Gomez.
Aside from the dramatic scene, the insider tells US Weekly that the rest of the evening was a “total blast” as Swift’s friends Karlie Kloss, Kelly Osbourne, Charli XCX, Nick Jonas, Olivia Culpo and others partied the night away with a karaoke machine and that totally badass photo shoot.
Unfortunately for Gomez, this is just the latest incident in her long troubled history with Bieber. During her performance at the American Music Awards a few weeks back, the singer looked like she was holding back tears when singing “The Heart Wants What It Wants.”
