An insider told Star Magazine, “Selena was initially blindsided by Justin’s wedding plans. But after lots of contemplation realized it’s for the best, and told him so in a letter. She told pals it gave her enormous closure. It marked the end of a long, painful chapter of her life.”
As the two were one another’s first real relationship, there was a lot to unpack when they broke up. Gomez further hopes that Bieber’s marriage means she’ll never have to hear “Jelena” again.
“Selena doesn’t want to be linked to Justin forever,” another source told HollywoodLife. “She really just wants to get on with her life. She doesn’t want to be part of the Justin circus anymore.”
