PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Selena Gomez looks somber in bathing suit as she takes break from tour with yacht trip after death of friend Christina Grimmie
It was a terrible weekend for Selena Gomez as she mourned the loss of her friend Christina Grimmie, 22, who was tragically shot dead as she signed autographs for fans at her Florida concert on Friday night.
On Sunday the 23-year-old singer took a break from her Revival Tour to gather with friends on a yacht outside Miami in what was no doubt a sad voyage to regroup after the shocking murder.
The Hands To Myself singer was wearing a beige one-piece bathing suit as she leaned on a female pal while walking to the vessel. She was also seen looking somber while on the large boat.

'When she was 14, we met her and my parents and I signed her,' Selena said as her voice cracked with emotion.
'One thing about Christina and her family is that she holds her faith so closely to her. And I think it's not about a religion and it's not about anything or good deeds.'
She added: 'It's just that she had faith, and I don't really understand how this really happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her.'

Selena's stepfather Brian Teefey was Christina's manager, and set up a GoFundMe page for her family which has already raised $100,000.
He wrote on the fundraising page: 'Words cannot begin to describe the pain I am feeling. I learned this business through the eyes of a father and Christina was like a second daughter to me.
'All I wanted to do was assist her in achieving her musical dreams while protecting her from the pitfalls associated with the business. I never could have imagined this horrific event being one of the pitfalls needing to be avoided.'
Teefey added: 'In Christina’s honor I have created a Go Fund Me page to assist her family in their time of need. As family Mother, Father, and Brother made the ultimate family sacrifice to support Christina on her musical journey.
'They did nothing but love her and support her as family the best they knew how, the only worry I want them to have at this point is that of recovery. Grimms I love you, and miss you beyond comprehension.'
