Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift were once best friends, but now it seems like they don’t want anything to do with each other. Taylor is not a big fan of Justin Bieber and ever since Gomez started dating him again, the pair’s friendship has been strained.
A source close to Selena recently shared why she isn’t friends with Taylor or many of her other former friends and why she clings to Bieber in spite of his womanizing ways.
“Despite Justin’s flirtations with other girls, Selena still feels like Justin is a true friend than almost anyone else she knows. She feels like most of her celebrity friends are not legitimate. Justin makes her feel important,” a source told Hollywood Life.
“Taylor is off and on and in her own world. She’s friendly with Selena when it’s convenient for her. They rarely see each other. Plus, every five minutes, Taylor ends up getting upset with Selena over Justin. They are more like acquaintances with similar interests than besties,” the insider added.

It wasn’t too long ago that Taylor was bragging about her friendship with Gomez and seemed sure that it was genuine and would last. In May she said,
“It’s been the longest one I think either of us had really,” she said. “When your life changes and you become thrust into this really strange whirlwind where what your life is different from what other people think your life is. And your life is commented on and your life is written about and fictionalized and all that. Both of us have kind of stuck it out and hung in there through all the different changes we’ve gone through.”
“Longevity is something you really can find very precious and rare in friendships,” Swift added.
Do you think Taylor and Selena will become friends again?
