Things just got very real between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber!
Recently, Bieber started hanging out with 17-year-old Sofia Richie, and after photos of them on social media received negative feedback from fans, the 22-year-old pop star threatened to make his Instagram account private.
“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,” he captioned one pic.
Gomez then surprised everyone by commenting on his post, and telling her ex-boyfriend to keep his relationship out of the public eye if he didn’t want to be criticized.
“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. They were there for you before anyone.”
The former couple, who dated on and off for several years, then got into an all-out battle, and nearly everyone deemed Selena the winner.
“It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love,” Bieber replied, also adding, “I’m not one of anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and eachother [sic]. And yes I love my beliebers.”
“Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive,” Gomez quipped in response. “No wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.”
Soon afterwards, the hashtag #SelenaEndedJustinParty began trending on Twitter, as people everywhere celebrated Gomez’s burn towards her ex.
But she wasn’t done yet!
The “Kill Em with Kindness” singer then took to her own Instagram to share a collage of photos that showed her interacting with fans.
“My whole life,” she wrote. “You matter most. Thank you for letting me do what I love every day.”
