Selena Gomez had a nasty encounter with some loutish photographers in Los Angeles who tried to pepper her with questions about her reaction to ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber’s fisticuffs in Ibiza.
Selena and three friends appeared from the video to be leaving the Eclectic Wine Bar and Grille on Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood.
The photogs were outside, waiting for her.
“Selena, are you for Orlando Bloom or for Bieber on that fight they got into?” asked one of the paparazzo.
He was referring to a confrontation that took place early Wednesday (July 30) in the celebrity Spanish resort. In a video of the incident, Bloom can be seen squaring off and throwing a punch at the smarmy singer.
Bloom had been seething over claims Bieber allegedly made that he slept with the actor’s then-wife, model Miranda Kerr, after the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York City.
The rumors were so rife, Kerr hired a lawyer and threatened to sue anyone who repeated or published them. Reports are conflicting over who incited the confrontation, but Bloom ended up throwing a punch. Bieber left the club immediately.
Although early reports suggested that Selena might also have been the cause, they later proved to be untrue.
Paparazzi have a habit of asking incendiary questions hoping to provoke a reaction that might make news. Kristen Stewart’s went through the same thing during her cheating scandal with “Snow White and the Huntsman” Director Rupert Sanders.
Selena, for the most part, walked with her head down and got into a waiting SUV. But someone, either she or another person in her entourage, can be heard uttering “Fu*k you,” as Selena got in the truck.
Gomez has been testy with photographers lately. She brushed back a paparazzo who was trying to film her in Saint-Tropez over her birthday holiday.
