With a paternity suit against boyfriend Justin Bieber now dropped, Selena Gomez hit “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and talked about the media frenzy over the potential scandal and the behind-the-scenes drama and stress she went under during the speculation.

“What a crazy two weeks it’s been!” Ellen DeGeneres told the Disney Channel star/singer. Gomez replied by saying “To say the least” before admitting “It’s not easy.”

Mariah Yeater reportedly dropped her paternity lawsuit claims against Bieber last week, after alleged text messages from the baby’s real father were unearthed.

It hasn’t been a completely terrific week for the young singer however. A judge on Wednesday dropped charges against an Illinois man who was accused of stalking Gomez earlier this year, citing that the man “lacked specific intent” to cause Gomez fear.

Nevertheless, the pop star, who has a role in the upcoming movie “The Muppets,” told DeGeneres that Bieber is jealous of her ability to remain private although she has so far been unable to convince Bieber to “pull up his pants.”
