According to an eyewitness, Gomez entered a Wild Taco restaurant in the Newport Beach area on September 18 and asked to use the bathroom.

Ten minutes later, Gomez's friend came back in a panic, questioning if the “Back To You” singer's cell phone was left behind.

"They thought Selena left her phone in our restroom. No phone was found or turned in so it’s possible someone could have stolen her phone from the restaurant or she lost it prior to coming into Wild Taco,” the witness said.

The source explained that Gomez was "very sweet and didn’t seem sad" upon first entering the restaurant.

"She politely asked me where the restroom was and then thanked me," the insider said.

But that all changed when she noticed her phone went missing.

"Once people in the restaurant started noticing her and she realized her phone was missing, that’s when I could tell her energy shifted and she just wanted to get out of there,” the onlooker continued. “Her and her friend seemed a bit frantic."

The witness added that Justin Bieber’s ex and her friend were seen getting into a white SUV before driving off.
