Justin Bieber is “furious” over Selena Gomez “flirting” with Orlando Bloom, claims HollywoodLife.

According to the webloid, “This latest interaction between Selena and Orlando must be a huge slap in the face to the troubled pop bad-boy.”


The blog then notes, “Selena and Orlando recently participated in the We Day California conference on March 26. The 21-year-old singer gave a moving speech and later, backstage, posed with Orlando.”

Next, HollywoodLife adds, “The picture was posted to her Instagram account, and was probably the reason for Justin’s alleged jealous accusations.”


Before we get to what real sources tell Gossip Cop, let’s analyze this absurd story.

(1) HollywoodLife says Gomez was “flirting” with Bloom.

In reality, all she did was pose for a photo (see below) — NOT flirt.

(2) HollywoodLife speculates Gomez and Bloom’s photo “must be a huge slap in the face to the troubled pop bad-boy.”

So, now the site employs mind-readers who know what must be going on in Bieber’s head?

(3) The photo of Gomez posing with Bloom “was probably the reason for Justin’s alleged jealous accusations.”

OK, that whole phrase is ridiculous because they’re guessing what “probably” was a reason. Real journalists get answers, not make guesses. And what the heck are “alleged jealous accusations”? Either someone’s jealous or not.

Of course, this is yet another lame HollywoodLies, er, HollywoodLife attempt to cause drama between the on-and-off Gomez and Bieber.

Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with actual insiders, who have repeatedly disproven HollywoodLife’s tall tales, and we’re told, “This is total nonsense.”
