In light of today’s news that Mariah Yeater, the woman accusing 17-year-old Justin Bieber of fathering her baby, has essentially given up her case, it looks like the Biebs can breathe easy. But can his long-time (when you’re 17, one year is a very long time!) girlfriend, Selena Gomez, emerge from the whole scandal unscathed?

In this preview clip from today’s Ellen show, Selena reacts to Ellen’s general questions about the last two weeks with some sighs of relief, but it was clear from her body language and tone of voice that she wasn’t exactly untouched or unmoved by the whole thing.

Ellen asks her if all the news had affected her, and Selena said, “to say the least... It’s good to just kind of, be good.” And then, “It hasn’t been easy.”

We do feel sorry for the Disney star — she must have known that dating Bieber would bring them both even further into the spotlight, but Selena probably thought all baby talk would be done behind closed doors — with no actual baby involved.
