Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

When you spend your formative years around a group of yes men who do nothing but enable your ego, help you dodge any responsibility for your actions and give you anything and everything you want, chances are that’s going to mess with your world view and you’re going to get used to getting your way all the time. And I’m assuming the moment someone tells you no, you’re going to throw a big stupid immature hissy fit until you get what you want. Which, according a new report from TMZ, is what happened to Justin Bieber after he broke up with Selena Gomez, and is pretty much the reason why he’s acting like a spoiled douche everywhere he goes …

Our sources tell us … Justin was “torn apart” when Selena pulled the plug on their relationship in December, when she walked out on him in the middle of their Mexico vacation. We’re told Justin feels “tortured,” because Selena has not made a clean break — far from it. We’re told she is regularly calling him and sending him mixed messages, and it’s been messing with his head. That could explain why Justin went to Selena’s L.A. home last week, but hasn’t been seen there since.

Of course, there’s one little problem with this theory … it doesn’t at all explain why Justin acted like a spoiled douche before Selena dumped his minuscule ass. Chances are, they’re basically trying to blame his crappy behavior on her instead of making him take responsibility for his actions. I mean really, he’s feeling “tortured” because his ex still cares enough about him to make sure he’s doing okay? Boo hoo, Justin must be crushed.
