MAG: Justin Bieber Erupts in “Jealous Rage” Over James Franco & Selena Gomez
“Justin Bieber has gone ballistic over his sweetie Selena Gomez’s flirty friendship with her Spring Breakers co-star James Franco!” declares the National Enquirer. The tabloid claims Bieber “threatened to deck” Franco after seeing pictures of Gomez “cozying up to him.”
“Justin is steaming at Selena for striking up what he considers an inappropriate relationship with James,” explains a “source” for the Enquirer. “But he’s directed most of his anger at James.” The Biebs allegedly got angry after seeing photos from the movie’s Venice Film Festival premiere, with the tab’s source claiming, “He called Selena and said that if he’d been there, he would have beaten up James for coming on to her. Selena told him they’re just friends and to stop acting like a spoiled child.”
According to the Enquirer’s insider, when Bieber came to visit Gomez in Toronto shortly thereafter, it was because he “wanted to keep an eye on her.” Bieber’s supposed “jealous rage” has led Gomez to warn him that “she’ll dump him if he throws another temper tantrum like this,” says the mag’s source.
We’re curious if this is the same Enquirer “source” who came up with the bogus story about Bieber bottling and selling his own sweat — because this new story is just as ridiculous. The outlet has been fixated on Bieber’s alleged jealousy over Gomez before, and other tabloids tried floating this Franco nonsense last spring. The Enquirer is trying to make it even more sensationalistic now by saying Bieber allegedly threatened to beat up Franco — but adding violence to the premise doesn’t make it any more legitimate. A source close to Bieber tells Gossip Cop the idea that he flew into a “rage” over Gomez and Franco is laughable and totally “untrue.”
