Selena Gomez has cancelled her meet-and-greet with fans after her friend and former opening act Christina Grimmie murder. The meet and greet was scheduled to take place at her concert in Miami, but she and her team aren’t taking any chances in the wake of the senseless killing that hit Selena hard. Selena posted a photo of her and Christina together on Twitter. She wrote that her heart is absolutely broken. Reports are coming out that there are no metal detectors at the venue where Selena was scheduled to play, but there are unarmed security guards to check people’s bags. The Voice finalist was only 16 when she opened for Gomez during the North American leg of her “We Own the Night” tour.  She also performed nine dates on Selena’s “Stars Dance” tour in 2013. Selena’s stepfather was also Christina’s longtime manager. Selena has yet to announce when her next meet and greet will be. Our thoughts are with Christina’s family and friends during this difficult time.
