Justin Bieber moved on quickly from dating Selena Gomez to getting engaged to Hailey Baldwin, and Gomez’s family says the singer is better off because of it. Maria Deleon, Gomez’s aunt, says her niece is much better off without the playboy singer, and she doesn’t even think that Bieber and Baldwin will actually tie the knot.
Deleon met Bieber when he first started dating her niece back when she took him home to Fort Worth, Texas, to meet her extended family.
“Selena brought Justin to my house when they were first friends, he seemed like a nice boy, but everything that went wrong we say, ‘it’s the age,’” Deleon explained. “He was very young. He’s still young!”

Delone later said in her interview with Radar Online that she saw on the news that Bieber was going to marry Baldwin. But with the “way he is” you never know if they will actually make it down the aisle. She says she thinks it is good that Gomez is moving on, and the family doesn’t talk about Bieber.
Sources say that Gomez dumped Bieber because she felt “smothered” by the 24-year-old. But now that she is rid of her toxic ex, she is doing much better.
Deleon says that Gomez is still close to her family in Texas, and she comes down to visit whenever she can. She even visited for Thanksgiving, and the family cooked dinner together. She also reveals that Gomez is “doing very well” following her kidney transplant she received last year after she had complications with Lupus. The Hands To Myself singer received a kidney donated by her best friend, Francia Raisa.
Deleon also revealed that they found out her sister had Lupus at the age of 34, and she had a prognosis of death in one to five years. She ended up being in intensive care for three months, but they believe in God, just like Gomez, and they continued to pray.

Lupus runs in Gomez’s family. In addition to her aunt, there is also another family member who has Lupus, too. Deleon says it is very dangerous, and it was awful when they found out Gomez’s diagnosis. However, she is a miracle and is doing “amazing” now.
She says they tell Gomez to keep praying, and the singer has also made life changes. She eats well and takes care of herself, and she also avoids alcohol.
Gomez has also moved out of Hollywood, and Deleon says that is a good thing because it can be a hard place. Gomez has had her own struggles, but it is a good thing that she is happy now.
Deleon adds that Selena Gomez will definitely be back to see her family in Texas, and they still love her very much.
