Selena Gomez's aunt claims she's no Bieli-ber!
Maria Deleon told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview that Gomez — who was Justin Bieber's girlfriend right before he got engaged to Hailey Baldwin — is better off without the playboy singer.
The protective aunt even said she doubts Bieber will make it down the aisle with his 21-year-old fiancee!
Deleon met Bieber when the two first got together, and Gomez took him home to Fort Worth, Texas, to meet her extended family.
“Selena brought Justin to my house when they were first friends, he seemed like a nice boy, but everything that went wrong we say, ‘it’s the age,’” she explained. "He was very young. He's still young!"
“I saw on the news he is getting married to Baldwin, but whether he will make it down the aisle, the way he is, you never know. I think it’s good Selena is moving on. We don’t talk about him!"
A Radar source claimed Gomez felt "smothered" by her relationship with Bieber, so she dumped him.
Now, the singer is "doing so much better" without her toxic ex.
“Selena is still close to her Texas family and she comes back to see us when she can. She was back for Thanksgiving and we all cooked together," DeLeon said.
Deleon also said the Gomez is “doing very well” since her kidney transplant last summer following complications with Lupus.
As Radar readers know, the star received an organ donated by her best friend, Francia Raisa.
“When they found out my sister had Lupus, she was 34 years old, they said she was going to die in one to five years," the Texas native said. "She was in intensive care for three months, but we believe in God, and so does Selena, and we prayed."
“There is another family member on her mom’s side, an aunt or a cousin, who has lupus, too. It runs in the family."
“Lupus is very dangerous, and it was awful when Selena was diagnosed, but she's amazing right now. It was a miracle.
“We tell her to keep praying and she has made life changes, I don’t think she can drink alcohol and she eats well and takes care of herself," Deleon said.
“I heard she has moved out of Los Angeles, I think that’s good. I also saw Demi Lovato had taken an overdose. They were friends when they were babies.:
“It’s devastating, and Hollywood can be a very hard place. Selena has had her own struggles, but she is good right now, she’s happy,” her aunt insisted.
Meanwhile, Selena is selling her 10,000 square foot Fort Worth estate, just minutes from her aunt’s house, for a cool $3 million, but she’s not cutting ties with her hometown.
“Last time she came there were too many people, everyone heard she was here, so she had to rent a bigger house,” Deleon said.
“I saw on Facebook she is selling, but she will maybe buy again, I don’t know. She will definitely be back to see us that’s for sure. And we love her.”
