Former Disney star Selena Gomez has been criticised for showing off her ankles during a visit to a mosque.

The on/off girlfriend of Justin Bieber is currently in Dubai with celebrity BFFs Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid and the group visited a mosque as part of their tour.

But the Spring Breakers actress found herself in hot water as she posted a photo of herself proudly displaying her ankles while in the mosque, in violation of the strict rules banning 'intimate behaviour' at all mosques.

All female visitors must wear ankle length skirts, while Selena abided by, only to lift up the bottom of her skirt exposing the bottom half of her leg.

While Gomez has not yet commented on the controversy, she did delete photo from her Instagram account.

Meanwhile, her ex Justin Bieber has reportedly moved on from with model Hailey Baldwin and the two rang in 2015 together.

Selena recently released The Heart Wants What It Wants, a single about the end of her tumultuous three-year relationship with ex-boyfriend Justin.

It’s claimed he is also recovering from their breakup and is hoping they’ll get back together.
