Selena Gomez reacted to Justin Bieber's arrest earlier today by saying she hopes the singer gets the help he so desperately needs. Shying away from making any additional comments, it was easy to see that the situation made her uncomfortable.

In other news about the Come & Get It singer, it seems Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato did in fact experience a falling out and split from being BFFs for a while. Selena finally acknowledged this publicly in a recent interview with Seventeen magazine. The problems leading to the break down of their friendship took place around 2010, but Gomez assures everyone that the two are closer than they've ever been now.

Selena shares details about the situation in the magazine's March issue, and Seventeen shares Selena Gomez's picture on its cover.

"I've known her since we were seven—and we did fall apart for a while," Selena says of Demi Lovato. "She was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing—I processed it saying, 'OK, I don't understand what she's going through so I'm just going to do this.' And I don't think it was fair, and I'm so happy that I have her back in my life now. I feel like we're all given what we can handle, and clearly someone thought she could handle so much—and she could, and she did. And she's incredible for that. I couldn’t imagine going through some of the things that she went through, and the fact that she is who she is today is insane—she's one of my inspirations."

Selena Gomez was spotted out buying cigarettes in California on the same day Justin Bieber was arrested for DUI in Miami. Regardless of the status of her relationship with Bieber she wants only the best for him and certainly doesn't want to see him in situations that can potentially cause him harm.

Fortunately she has Demi Lovato to rely on should she need to talk about the situation. Since the two girls are thick as thieves once again, they can bounce their thoughts and feeling off one another. Following Justin's situation in Miami, it's quite likely Selena Gomez will need her BFF.
