The ongoing feud between Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber took a dangerous turn after Gomez revealed that Bieber has been receiving death threats. The drama, which has been fueled by fans for several weeks, started when Bieber shared a social media post with Kylie Jenner that many believed was aimed at Gomez. Fans of all three celebrities speculated that there was bad blood between them.
In an Instagram story on Friday morning, Gomez revealed that Bieber had contacted her about receiving death threats and urged her fans to stop the bullying. The pop star stressed the importance of kindness and expressed her desire for the negativity to stop.
The rumors of a feud between Gomez and Bieber began to circulate in February 2023. Fans speculated that Bieber’s social media post with Kylie Jenner was intended to shade Gomez. Since Bieber’s marriage to Gomez’s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, rumors of a feud between the two women have been widespread. However, both women have attempted to quash these rumors publicly.
In an interview with the Call Her Daddy podcast in September 2022, Bieber addressed the rumors of drama and stated that she and Gomez were on good terms. The following day, Gomez urged her fans to stop leaving hateful comments, emphasizing that “words matter.”
With 403 million Instagram followers, Selena Gomez’s plea for kindness likely reached a significant portion of the social media platform’s users.
