The web has been buzzing about the relationship between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. Are they just good friends or something more? The ‘something more’ idea has a lot of hardcore Bieber fans seeing red, resulting in Selena seeing death threats.
When photos surfaced of Justin and Selena onboard a yacht in the Caribbean over New Year’s weekend, Twitter lit up with some graphic death threats aimed at the Disney star, some of them describing exactly what should happen if the rumors of romance turn out to be true.
I really hate to be the one to shatter the illusions of denial for those dedicated fans, but have you seen the pictures? They don’t exactly scream ‘platonic’.
Justin and Selena have been dodging rumors for what seems like forever; Justin’s reps have even told Celebuzz and an online fan site that pictures showing the two together kissing were faked.
Aside from being off the market if Justin really is dating Selena, what’s the big deal? People really seem to hate the Wizards of Waverly Place star (death threats! Really?). What is it about her that gets Bieber fans so upset?
