Selena Gomez Avoids Question About Working with Accused Child Molester

By  | 

Selena Gomez just wrapped filming on a movie called A Rainy Day in New York, which was run by one of the most controversial directors in Hollywood, Woody Allen. The 25-year-old faced serious (and understandable) backlash, because the 82-year-old was accused of sexually abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was just seven years old. The “Wolves” crooner was asked about her decision to sign onto the project, but basically said nothing with her response.

“To be honest, I’m not sure how to answer — not because I’m trying to back away from it,” she said in an interview with Billboard magazine. “[The Harvey Weinstein allegations] actually happened right after I had started [on the movie]. They popped up in the midst of it. And that’s something, yes, I had to face and discuss. I stepped back and thought, Wow, the universe works in interesting ways.”

Ummm…wut?

People are not only confused, but also pretty disgusted that Sel totally avoided a very important question.

SelGo was also asked how she feels about women in Hollywood coming forward about being sexually abused/harassed in the past.

She explained, “I’ve cried. But I definitely feel hopeful. As people speak out, I hope that feels powerful to them, because they deserve to feel that. I’m fortunate enough not to have experienced some of the traumatic things that other women have had to go through. I’ve known people in my family who’ve gone through those things. I try to let people come to me and open up, to make a safe environment for them to do so.”
