Justin Bieber may be angry about the paparazzi coverage of his relationship with Selena Gomez - as evidenced by this middle finger - but the latter singer is simply scared.
Or terrified, to be exact, according to the latest issue of Star Magazine.
Ever since Justin and Selena went public at a Vanity Fair Oscars party last month, sources tell the tabloid that death threats against Gomez have intensified. Many Beliebers have transitioned from passionate to disturbing.
"Selena's terrified," says the insider. "She's only young and when she sees things written about her, she understandably freaks out. Justin tries to reassure her, but what can he do?"
As she discusses in the video above, Gomez has dedicated her latest single, "Who Says," to these critics. She told Ryan Seacrest last week:
"This song is such a great message to my fans, and it really touched me when I heard it. Basically, it's to the haters, it's to the people who try to bring you down."
