Cape Town - Selena Gomez recently got candid about her former relationship with Justin Bieber.
"I felt I didn't get a respectful closure, and I had accepted that, but I know I needed some way to just say a few things that I wish I had said... It was very difficult and I'm happy it's over," Selena said, speaking to show host Lulu Garcia-Navarro.
Lulu then asked if she was referring to her time together with Justin.
"It's dangerous to stay in a victim mentality. And I'm not being disrespectful, I do feel I was a victim to certain abuse," said Selena which prompted the interviewer to ask if it was emotional abuse she meant.
"Yes, and I think that it's something that... I had to find a way to understand it as an adult," she admits.
"And I had to understand the choices I was making. 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," she added.
Selena’s candid interview comes after Justin recently opened up about living with Lyme disease for years.
