Selena Gomez & Khloe Kardashian are Addicted to Bad Boys
Why is it that gorgeous successful women are drawn to bad boys? First, we had Rihanna and Chris Brown, then Katy Perry and John Mayer, now Selena Gomez and Khloé Kardashian have joined the long list of A-list ladies who seem to be attracted like magnets to men who spell trouble with a capital T. Selena is said to be desperate to fox up her image to hang on to on/off boyfriend Justin Bieber, while Khloé reportedly split with French Montana because she’s still pining for her rogue ex Lamar Odom. We had to find out why…
Selena Commits to Bad Boy Biebs
When Selena debuted her foxy new haircut last week, insiders speculated whether she was trying to impress Justin, who’s spent the summer partying with models including Adriana Lima and Lily Aldridge. Their on-again status was confirmed when Justin, 20, had to give a deposition in his ongoing legal battle with a photographer who claims he assaulted him. When asked about the status of his relationship with Selena, 22, Justin replied, “We’re dating.”
We asked an expert psychologist Jayne Morris what gives? “For some women, a bad guy represents an opportunity for a ‘good’ girl to escape the expectations society holds for her, and break the rules and explore her alter ego,” she says. “This sense of escape can become addictive to some women, resulting in a pattern of repeated toxic relationships.” So, is Selena just trying to shake off her clean Disney image? A friend of the couple said: “Selena and Justin are together right now – he’s asked her to move in with him.” But wisely, Selena is wary about jumping in head first.“She’s still being cautious – she’s not going to give up her place. That way, if anything goes wrong or if she decides she needs some space, she’ll have her own spot to go to. But, officially she’ll be living with him. It’s a huge step.”
Khloé ‘Torn’ Over Ex Lamar
When Khloé ended her romance with rapper French Montana, rumours flew that the reason for the break-up was that she was still hung up on Lamar. Now, a source close to the Kardashian clan has confirmed she’s allegedly considering getting back with her cheating ex-hubby. “We form relationship patterns based on the experiences we have in childhood and what is modelled to us by our caregivers, siblings and friends,” explains Jayne. “Toxic relationship patterns can be addictive because despite their negative aspects, they fill some kind of inner void or longing.”
A Kardashian insider reckons Khloé’s been having a challenging time. “She’s torn over whether or not to reconcile with Lamar, and yes, she’s been losing sleep over this. Her heart is telling her one thing and her head something else.” Lamar is reportedly keen to take advantage of his ex’s vulnerability and is primed to pounce. Khloé’s split will make it that much easier for him to get back with her, but should she forgive and forget so soon?
