Selena Gomez has denied a text exchange with on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber that escalated to vile and nude messages from the “Boyfriend” singer.
According to the Daily Mail, the 21-year-old’s representative Jill Fritzo issued a firm “not real” when the website contacted her for comments on whether alleged nude photos and derogatory slurs were sent from Bieber, as reported by RadarOnline.
The online tabloid reported the duo had a bitter fight over text after the police raided Bieber’s California home and arrested one of his confidants on drug charges. In the alleged text exchange, Gomez supposedly called her ex-boyfriend a “drug addict” that needs to get help.
While Gomez’s camp issued a swift denial, Bieber’s reps are still mum, according to the Daily Mail.
The 19-year-old Canadian pop singer and Gomez – who made an appearance at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday – sparked reconciliation rumors during the New Year when they were spotted together, near his home in California.
But according to RadarOnline’s report, the happy times did not continue between the couple. The site reported that Gomez reacted badly to a text from Bieber and it went downhill from there.
The texts were allegedly forwarded to one of the actress’ friends from a phone registered to her stepfather Brian Teefey, Radar reported.
The website said that Gomez told Bieber that she does not buy what he tells her anymore.
“I was honest with you and I gave you a second chance. All my friends were right,” she allegedly texted, before calling him a drug addict who needs help.
“You need to listen to Scooter (Braun, Bieber’s manager) and go to rehab. U r sick,” Gomez reportedly texted him.
The website also reported that during the heated exchange between the two, the “Believe” singer also allegedly sent Gomez a nude picture of himself.
Radar’s report adds to the growing controversy surrounding Bieber after an egging incident that led to a police raid of his California home. According to E! News, despite rumors, drugs were not found on Bieber but illegal substances were supposedly in his friend's Lil Za’s room – for which he was subsequently arrested. He was later released.
