Selena Gomez is now in the middle of the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce drama — and it’s all thanks to Instagram. A tabloid report is saying that Jolie became enraged after she saw a photo of the pop princess and her husband looking flirty at a Golden Globes after-party held in January. The “Hands To Myself” songstress, who co-starred with the dad-of-six in “The Big Short,” posted a photo on social media of herself gazing into the actor’s eyes as she sits close to him on a couch. Gomez, who dated Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Zedd, alluded at the time that she has a crush on the megastar.
She told People magazine on the Globes red carpet that she was on the lookout for “Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling.” “I’m not going to lie, it’s nice to, like, look at all of the hot guys that I admire,” she said. “Yeah, so I was in my dressing room and I had just finished performing. They knocked on my door and they said Brad Pitt would like to come in and I was like, ‘He can come in.’ I was trying to play cool and be really nice,” Gomez told Ellen DeGeneres of meeting the 52-year-old Hollywood hunk. “As soon as he walked out I ran and I hide under the craft service table for like two minutes because I couldn’t believe it was happening.”
A rep for Selena Gomez did not respond to the Daily News’ request for comment. Still, this isn’t the first time her flirtations have been a source of tabloid fodder. In May, she was accused of getting in the middle of Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry relationship after a photo of her cuddling close to the actor in a Las Vegas nightclub surfaced online.
