I feel betrayed by my friend/roommate. How do I get over this?

A couple of months ago I began hanging out with a girl. I really enjoyed her company and was crushing hard. After about a month and a half of hanging she ended up not wanting the same things I wanted so it ended. I would be lying if I said I wasn't bummed about the situation but I got over it.
So I found out this past sunday that my roommate and her have been sleeping together for weeks. I know me and girl never were in a relationship but I can't help to feel betrayed by my roommate. We have been friends for close to two years so I feel let down. I'm not mad about them sleeping together but rather that he was going around my back about such things. Obviously its not my place to tell him he cannot sleep with someone but I don't understand how he thought I wouldn't find out or be upset.
Am I justified in feeling this way or am I being selfish? Should I be able to trust him?
