News that actor James Franco is dating his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson, of Pretty Little Liars fame, broke earlier this week. And not soon after that, rumors began to spread that Franco and Benson’s co-star Selena Gomez is not happy with their relationship.
Gomez, who reportedly got Benson the role in their upcoming flick, is upset over the new romance because when Benson started dating Franco, she was still dating Gomez’s boyfriend, Justin Bieber‘s BFF Ryan Good.
“Selena feels used and kind of punched in the face seeing as though she got Ashley the role and Ashley just used the opportunity to break her friend’s heart,” an insider revealed to RadarOnline.com.
“After Emma Roberts turned down the role because she didn’t want to gain weight for it, Ashley practically begged Selena to get her in front of producers for the part. She did, because she thought they were all friends, but it was clear early on that Ashley had something going on with James,” the source added.
When Good began to notice a “shift” in Benson’s attitude, Gomez assured him nothing was wrong.
“Once the shoot wrapped, Ashley told Ryan they needed to ‘slow down’ and then booked a flight to New York City to go see James’ art gallery showing,” the insider continued.
“Selena is pi–ed off that she went out of her way to vouch for Ashley, only to have her dump Ryan,” the source said “She got the role and she got the man, but she lost a good friend.”
