Just as expected, following the release of racy photos of Justin Bieber, 17, and Selena Gomez, 18, on vacation in Hawaii where they are giving the paparazzi snapping photos PDA, the Disney star is receiving death threats on social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. “If you are the Girlfriend of Justin I will Kill you I HATE YOU,” said one tweet. Another said, “I’m gonna kill ya in the night underneath your smell (sic) bed.”
Bieber recently hit over 10 million followers on his Twitter accounts, where he remains atop one of the most popular celebrities on the social media website. It’s no surprise that since Bieber is such a popular figure with younger audience, particularly girls, that Gomez was probably expecting to hear such hate-filled comments, especially after TMZ posted a photo of Gomez and Bieber kissing months ago, which also lead to similar tweets.
Bieber and Gomez have denied being a couple as of late, stating that they are just “friends,” but sources close to the couple, including photos of the two hand-in-hand and the PDA photos, show otherwise. A source states that the two have been an item since December of 2010, and judging from the photos, it likely isn’t coming to an end soon.
