Hailey Bieber Said People Need To Be "A Lot Nicer" After She Was Accused Of Throwing Shade At Selena Gomez

    "Let’s not give people a reason to fuel fire and create drama and being rude to each other," Hailey said.

    You're probably already aware that Selena Gomez dropped her single "Lose You to Love Me" in October, earning her first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    You also probably already know that Selena's ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, got married to model Hailey Baldwin just a couple of weeks before that.

    It's safe to say fans got their detective hats out when Selena's song dropped, analysing the lyrics and coming to the conclusion that it definitely seems to reference her past relationship with Justin.

    And Selena seemed to confirm that the song was about Justin in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, revealing that it was written over a year ago — around the time she broke up with Justin — but she didn't want to release it at the time.

    "It took me a long time to get through it," Selena explained. "I was gonna release [the album] two years ago, and none of the words that I'm speaking now [in this song] would have existed. So taking a moment to actually feel the feelings that I've gone through — I'm so grateful."

    But it all kicked off when Hailey Bieber posted this screenshot on her Instagram story the very day Selena dropped her song.

    Selena's fans weren't happy, and Hailey eventually denied throwing shade in an Instagram comment calling the accusations "nonsense" and "BS".

    Then Selena herself seemed to reference the whole mess in a lengthy message posted on Twitter. She wrote: "The enemy keeps trying to tear me down and it's just not gonna happen."

    But in an Instagram livestream the following day, Selena pleaded with her fans to "be kind to everyone".

    And in a new interview with British Vogue, the new Mrs Bieber backed Selena's sentiment, saying she's tired of people creating "false drama between women".

    "I’m passionate about women taking care of women," Hailey explained. "I think we all just need to be a lot nicer."

    "I think social media is a breeding ground for toxicity and people creating false drama between women and trying to put women up against each other," she went on.
