Justin Bieber may have been arrested for allegedly driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license while drag racing, but his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez doesn't seem too distressed.
The 21-year-old singer and her friend Demi Lovato dined at Craig's Restaurant in Los Angeles on Thursday (Jan. 23), just hours after Bieber was released from the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami, Fla., on a $2,500 bond. The ladies were photographed hugging while leaving the eatery.
Gomez, who recently returned to LA after promoting her new film "Rudderless" at Sundance, looked chic in a beige top with a plunging neckline, black jeans and a loose-fitting sweater while Lovato rocked pink hair, a t-shirt and a leather jacket.
The "Come and Get It" singer was spotted earlier in the day heading back to her car after a pit stop at a local gas station, where she picked up a soda and a pack of cigarettes, according to Us Weekly.
Gomez opens up about her friendship with Lovato in the March issue Seventeen magazine, revealing that they went through a rough patch.
"Demi's very, very strong. She's the only person that I would tell the deepest, darkest secrets to. The only person," Gomez explains to Seventeen. "I've known her since we were 7, and we did fall apart for a while. She was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing. I processed it saying, 'OK, I don't understand what she's going through so I'm just going to do this.' I don't think it was fair, and I'm so happy that I have her back in my life now."
