Selena Gomez has been served, but it’s not for something she has done. Once again, Justin Bieber is on the wrong side of the law, and she has been subpoenaed to testify during an upcoming lawsuit.
Bieber fans will be happy to know that this is not a new issue, though. The lawsuit involves an incident from May 2012, when the celebrity couple was still together. They would on a date, when the Boyfriend singer allegedly attacked a man within the Calabasas Commons.
According to the victim, he was photographing the celebrity couple and that caused the at-the-time 18-year-old to lash out and attack him. The two fled the scene before the police could be called, but it did not stop the reported victim from filing a police report. If Bieber is convicted, it will likely be a misdemeanor battery charge against his name.
From the looks of the photos shared in Us Weekly, Gomez did not look like she was expecting the papers to be served. She was simply walking from a convenience store, Slushie in hand, and was approached from behind by a woman. She did not seem impressed that her on-again, off-again boyfriend’s legal problems were pulling her into it all.
It is probably a good thing that the two are back together. Gomez would definitely not have been happy to have been served if things were still strained between her and her 20-year-old boyfriend.
The Come & Get It singer and Bieber were recently spotted in Texas, where they decided to rekindle their relationship. Not everybody is happy about this, with many of her friends and reps worried that it will lead to more mental problems. The singer spent two weeks in rehab partially due to the stress that Bieber had caused over the last few years. Many worry that it will lead to a relapse, especially considering that she did not complete her stint in the facility.
Gomez’s name also came up in another legal issue surrounding the 20-year-old Canadian singer. He was deposed in Miami surrounding another altercation with a photographer. This time it was involving his bodyguard, who reportedly pulled a gun out. The deposition did not go as well as many would have hoped. During the questioning about his relationship with Gomez, the young singer shouted at the lawyer to stop asking about her.
The celebrity couple seems to have patched up their differences lately. After being spotted at the Wizards of Waverly Place star’s concert, the two were later seen together in a more casual light. Getting back together has even fueled a few rumors, including one that they are expecting twins. The pregnancy rumor has been dispelled quickly due to the 21-year-old Texan not being in the area on the date that the scan was allegedly taken.
Bieber still has a number of other lawsuits coming up, including one for his DUI in Miami. Hopefully, girlfriend Gomez will just be there to support him, rather than being served to testify in court.
