• Selena Gomez Removes Purity Ring, Horrifying Parents & Bieber Fans
  • As you surely noticed, 18-year-old Selena Gomez wasn't wearing her purity ring in those photos of her canoodling with Justin Bieber in the Caribbean. Now a family friend reports, "When the ring came off, Selena's parents became unglued."
  • Selena has worn the ring since she was 12-years-old, "But when things started getting hot with Justin, suddenly she was wearing it less and less. Selena's family thinks the world of Justin and isn't opposed to them dating. But they're very conservative people and they'd be heartsick if she did something with him that she'd later regret." So now her parents are doing what any sane, rational people would do — having people in her entourage spy on their adult daughter to make sure she isn't boning some 16-year-old floppy-haired heartthrob! Oh, also this story comes to us courtesy of the National Enquirer, so all these things are true. [Celebitchy]
