Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber had a relationship that saw more highs and lows than most rollercoasters. One being a teenage popstar and another the star of a popular Disney show, every moment of their relationship went online. Especially because, at their young ages, neither of them really cared about privacy either.
It was easily one of the most followed relationships on Instagram (and, well, TBH the world). Their fans got really invested into it and were eager to get more and more of Jelena content. Therefore, obviously, as the pop’s preeminent golden couple broke up in May 2018, the fans were – distraught.
Justin Beiber’s Marriage to Hailey
However, this last breakup was followed by Justin Beiber getting married to Hailey Baldwin, a love interest of past, in September 2018. This, of course, crushed all hopes that Jelena shippers had for the couple getting back together.
As a result of which, Hailey Beiber was immediately perceived as a “homewrecker”. Some bummed Selena Gomez fans went as far as to accuse her of “stealing” Justin Beiber from the Disney superstar.
Hailey received (and continues to receive) a lot of undeserved hatred from the Jelena fans. Despite the supermodel making it clear that Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber had already broken up before her.
“I can say, period, point blank, I was never with him when he was in a relationship with anybody — that’s the end of it,” She claimed.
Nevertheless, surprisingly, despite the internet-stirred drama between the two women, Selena and Hailey remain on good terms.
Baldwin said on an occasion that she has spoken with Gomez since the marriage. There is no apparent bad blood between the two.
“It’s all respect. It’s all love,” she said. “She doesn’t owe me anything. Neither of us owe anybody anything except respect. I respect her a lot, and I think there are no expectations (between us). I respect her.”
Hailey on Jelena Aftermath
Recently, the American model appeared on the ‘Call Her Daddy’ podcast earlier this week, where she, for the first time ever, revealed being a victim of “a lot of perpetuation and hate” from the Gomez fans. She went on to suggesting that the Taki Taki singer never publicly defended her from the hate she received from Jelena fans, even though the latter took a clear stand for her at several occasions.
This caused Selena Gomez fans to quickly drag Hailey Bieber again for dragging their idol’s name, and start bashing her again with what Selena called “vile and disgusting” comments.
Selena Indirectly Addressing Hailey
Selena addressed this whole situation with a perfect “kill ‘em with kindness” strategy. Without naming Hailey, Gomez seemed to respond to the model’s remarks in a TikTok live on Thursday.
“It’s not fair because no one should ever be spoken to in the manner that I’ve seen,” Gomez said.
She pointed out the the hypocrisy of fans and, her makeup brand, Rare Beauty supporters who spread hate online, despite the brand’s clear ideology of kindness and love.
“If you support Rare, I cannot thank you enough, but know that you are also representing what it means—and that is: Words matter. Truly matter.”
