My pic with Bieber was innocent: modelComment on this story
London - Selena Gomez's rumoured love rival Barbara Palvin blames her for creating drama.
The Victoria's Secret model - who was briefly linked to the 20-year-old 'Love You Like A Love Song' singer's on/off boyfriend Justin Bieber last November before their recent split - claims she never dated the Canadian popstar and their brief encounter almost ruined her own relationship.
The 19-year-old Hungarian beauty told Celebuzz: "You know how the drama started - Selena retweeted the picture," referring to a photo of Justin, Lil' Twist and Barbara she shared on Twitter on November 8, 2012 with the caption "...." suggesting she was annoyed.
She added: "I'm okay to talk about it because I know there's nothing.
"I wanted to meet him real bad. I watched his movie ['Justin Bieber: Never Say Never'] and I was like, 'He's such a cool kid, I want to meet him.' And then when I did at the [Victoria's Secret] show we met and of course we had a conversation and then I took the picture with him."
Barbara also claims she only went to see the 'Lion King' with Justin because he was able to get a group of friends and family tickets to a sold out show.
She said: "It was my sister's first time in New York and we so wanted to go to Broadway, but there were no more tickets. I just came up and was telling him, 'My sister is here, but she's sad because we can't go to Broadway, no more tickets.' And he was like, 'Well, I can get you one.' And his friends came . . . like six people and then me, my sister and agent. So friends.
"We didn't hang out, that's the funny part."
The beautiful brunette also claims the drama almost ruined her own relationship.
She said: "They [the media] gave me a real hard time with this with my boyfriend. They also put him in the press and he's not a celebrity or anything. Him being back home [in Hungary] with a normal life and everybody is like, 'You're girlfriend is dating Justin.' It's very hard for him. It made me p***ed, but there's always a dark side of this business.
"[Justin and I] don't stay in touch. I more talk with his manager Scooter. His father is Hungarian so there is this Hungarian connection and I talk with him." - Bang Showbiz
