She may no longer be his baby, but Selena Gomez is still stuck in the eye of Justin Bieber’s latest media storm. While he’s been partying in Miami – where he was just arrested for DUI and drag racing – she’s been working to promote her new movie, Ruderless, at the Sundance Film Festival.
But with Justin making so many headlines, fans and photographers at Sundance have been relentless in their pursuit of Selena. Since arriving at the festival, “she’s been mobbed,” one Sundance insider tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “Everywhere she goes, there’s a huge crowd of people waiting for her.”
She did, however find a few moments of respite by ducking into the festival’s IndieGoGo lounge, where she quietly hung out with co-stars Bill Macy and Billy Crudup. She also picked up some swag in the form of Koolaburra’s Haley Ankle II boots in the tawny port shade. “She told her publicist she really wanted a pair,” the insider explains.
Due to the enormous crowd waiting for her outside the lounge, Selena was snuck out a back door.
So far, she has yet to comment on Bieber’s arrest. Recently however, alleged texts between her and Bieber purport that she has been urging him to go to rehab.
