Selena Gomez Slams Justin Bieber Over Sofia Richie Instagram Threats

We declare an official war of words between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, who have just traded some serious insults on Instagram.

It all kicked off when Justin, 22, posted a series of photos of him with his rumoured new girlfriend Sofia Richie, before then threatening to make his account private after receiving “hate” filled messages from his followers.

Seemingly throwing his toys out of the pram, he wrote: “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 (sic).”

Cue Justin’s ex-girlfriend, Selena, 24, then wading into the deep drama waters to deliver some Pink Lady emoji-style advice, as she shared: “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol - it should be special between you two only.

“Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you and supported you before any one ever did.” *Mic drop*

The former Disney star advanced further on the sass scale when she posted a collage of photos – featuring interactions with her fans – on Instagram, and wrote: “My whole life. You matter the most. Thank you for letting me do what I love every day.”

But after Selena’s comments, Justin hit back with a cryptic message, which seemed to suggest that the Good For You singer had used him to become famous (Yes, REALLY).

In the screengrabs that have since been shared across the internet, it is believed that he wrote to his former flame: “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.

“I’m not one for anyone receiving hate,” he allegedly continued. “Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my Beliebers (sic).” Shots FIRED! 

Selena, who dated Justin sporadically for four years between 2010 and 2014, then appeared to respond, calling the Canadian singer out for cheating on her when they were together. 

Refraining from using ALL CAPS, she reportedly wrote: “Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supporting, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.”
