Selena Gomez Thanks Fans After Tragedy, Reveals Sister Was Named ‘Scarlett Teefey’


By Daniel Gates


Selena Gomez has been largely absent from the public eye in recent days, following the sad news that her mother, Mandy Dawn Cornett, had suffered a miscarriage.

Just moments ago, though, the singer posted a message to her millions of fans to express gratitude for their support.

“Belated Merry Christmas everybody.. I can’t thank you enough for all of your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate every one of you.. I love you all so much and we hope you and your family had a beautiful Christmas!” writes Gomez.

She signs the note, “Love, Me, Momma, Brian and our guardian angel Scarlett.”

Gomez’s enormous legion of fans quickly made “Scarlett Teefey” a trending topic on Twitter.

The baby was to be the first child of Cornett’s and Gomez’s stepdad, Brian Teefey, who got married when Gomez was 14 years old.
