Selena Gomez might preach to “Kill Em with Kindness,” but apparently that sentiment does not apply to ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. Although the on-again, off-again couple has had their fair share of ups and downs, Justin’s new relationship with Sofia Richie has ignited somewhat of a feud between the exes. The drama started when the “Sorry” singer posted an Instagram photo of him and Sofia with a caption aimed at his fans, who were getting aggressive with the 17-year-old model on social media: “I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.” The situation then escalated further when his followers noticed that Selena had posted a comment on the picture of Justin and Sofia, too. “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol,” she wrote. “It should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.”
Shortly after writing the comment, Selena uploaded a collage to her own Instagram account that praised her fans, and the caption — which read “My whole life. You matter most. Thank you for letting me do what I love every day.” — seemed to be a thinly-veiled reference to Justin’s predicament. This resulted in a back and forth between Justin and Selena that got a little bit heated. “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love,” Justin wrote back to Selena. “I’m not the one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers.”
According to some eagle-eyed fans, Selena didn’t hold back with her response. “Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.” So not only did she mock his comment, but she also accused him of cheating on her during their tumultuous relationship. Dang, Selena.
Justin has yet to respond.
