Selena Gomez fine after earthquake in Bulgaria

Selena Gomez has assured fans she's okay after she was caught up in a "scary" earthquake in Bulgaria on Tuesday (22May12).

A 5.8-magnitude tremor shook the country's capital Sofia in the early hours, prompting locals to flee their homes over fears buildings would collapse.

Fans of Gomez were left worried as the Disney star is in the country filming new movie The Getaway, but she's taken to Twitter.com to inform them she is fine - and she also reached out to her Italian fans after the country suffered a deadly quake on Sunday (20May12).

In a post on her page, she writes, "Thank you for all of your concerns!! Earthquake was scary but thankfully everyone is ok. Praying for Italy."
