Selena Gomez's upcoming concert may be a little different this weekend.

E! News can exclusively confirm the "Come and Get It" singer will not be holding meet-and-greets for fans at Saturday night's show in Miami.

The decision comes just one day after the sudden passing of Selena's close friend Christina Grimmie. The Voice contestant was performing at the Plaza Live in Orlando Friday evening when she was shot. She ultimately did not survive the gun shot wounds.

"My heart is absolutely broken," Selena wrote on social media with a throwback photo of herself and her close friend. "I miss you Christina."

Selena later shared a link to the family's GoFundMe page with a message from her stepfather who also served as the YouTube star's manager.

"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," Brian Teefey wrote. "I never could have imagined this horrific event being one of the pitfalls needing to be avoided."

He continued, "As a 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."

Selena and Christina first met after Brian discovered the singer on YouTube. The pair would end up performing together as part of the "Stars Dance" and "We Own the Night" tours. 

Fast-forward at least five years later and the family continued to share a special bond.

"I'm so blessed that they're in my life," Christina told Seventeen of Selena and her family back in 2011. "They're literally like a family—Selena has been so encouraging ever since we got hooked up. It's crazy! It's very much a fairy tale."
