Traveling from Fresno, Calif., she spent hundreds of dollars on the July 28 trip, only to find out once she was outside Gomez’s home that her boyfriend was behind the hoax.

Despite having what she thought was a real backstage pass in her hand, Viana, 16, realized she had been “catfished — just like the hit MTV show.

“You’re pathetic. That pass only cost me $19.95 on her fan website, smart one,” her boyfriend, who Viana has chosen not to publicly name, wrote in the nasty email.

“Viana it’s about time you realize that you won’t succeed without me.”

After realizing Gomez hadn't invited her over, Viana rang the intercom anyway and a young woman answered — followed by Gomez’s mother Mandy Teefey coming out of the house to figure out what was going on.

“She was very sweet and sympathetic. We had brought Selena a birthday present, and we also brought gifts for her newborn sister," Viana told

“Though we were glad her mom accepted the gifts, we left humiliated and didn’t get to meet Selena."

A source close to Gomez confirmed to that the unbelievable incident did indeed take place.
