“I don’t think he’s a bad guy, but he clearly said things in the past to hurt her. You don’t need to stop talking to the guy, but forgive him to the point of dating. I think it’s too much, this is a lack of self-love," the troll wrote.

Gomez then replied: "Oh sweetheart. I’ve been in therapy since I was 18. I know what’s best for me and I will fight till I get what I deserve/ I appreciate your misguided input but I’m growing. Don’t feel free to grow with me just know I’m not going to be with a f----boy ever again. Sorry to disappoint."
