When asked by the reporter if she was referring to ’emotional abuse’, Gomez replied in the affirmative.
‘Yes, and I think that it’s something that — I had to find a way to understand it as an adult.’
‘As much as I definitely don’t want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt and I’ve found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible,’ Selena concluded.
