Since Selena Gomez will be producing her biographical drama for Lifetime, fans are quick to speculate if ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber will be part of the show.
The 23-year-old “I Want You to Know” singer is set to have a scripted series for Lifetime, which will tackle not only her experiences but also her relationships.
“Selena’s Lifetime special will include a love interest, but he won’t be the focal point,” an insider from The Hollywood Life said. “Justin Bieber has been a huge part of Selena’s life, and can’t be ignored. However, this is really about Selena, not the roller coaster relationship she experienced with Justin.”
The source added that Selena Gomez’s TV drama is still at its planning stage. The former Disney star has tied up with Kevin Spacey as executive producer, Deadline said. Selena Gomez’s Lifetime drama will also have similarities to Mark Wahlberg’s “Entourage.”
Bustle noted that Gomez deserves to have her own drama series to share what she has gone through since she was young. “Gomez may be young, but the actress had a unique start in life worthy of some television drama,” the report noted. “The star has spoken out about growing up poor, and said that acting helped her combat that particularly challenging time in her life.”
The “Come & Get It” singer can also be recalled to have battled bullying and body-shaming.
Another report from The Hollywood Life said Selena Gomez’s life is not all about glamour. Having been born from teenage parents, the actress and singer has to live with the hardships of being a child star, and spend her entire life under the watchful eyes of the public.
“She’s dealt with insane, lasting heartbreak with Justin for years. It’s not easy being Selena,” the report said.
It is known that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been in an on-and-off relationship for three years until they officially called it quits in 2013.
However, recent reports claimed that Selena Gomez has once again reunited with Justin Bieber after they were seen in a couple of outings together.
Selena Gomez previously dated German DJ Zedd.
