Squashing The Negative Narratives Created By Fans Hailey Bieber And Selena Gomez Hug It Out
It's looking like one of the biggest [fan] feuds is coming to an end as Hailey Baldwin Bieber and Selena
It's looking like one of the biggest [fan] feuds is coming to an end as Hailey Baldwin Bieber and Selena Gomez are pictured hugging and smiling together. We say fan feud because although there has been heartbreak, the real drama surrounding the actress, model, and singer, Justin Bieber, was instigated by outsiders, especially those who were team Jelena.
But, just the other day Hailey and Gomez were photographed together at a gala (multiple times) looking happy and healed. The pictures took over the internet squashing any assumptions of there being bad blood between them. The photographer of this historic moment, Tyrell Hampton, captioned the photo on Instagram, "plot twist."
The heartwarming moment captured between the two comes shortly after Hailey set the record straight about her relationship with Justin, as well as Gomez, on the Call Her Daddy podcast.
“It’s all respect. It’s all love. … 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,” the model, 25 said of Gomez, 30.
Nobody Stole Anyone From Anyone
The model and business owner sat down with the one and only Alex Cooper for an episode of Call Her Daddy to get real about the truth surrounding her relationship with Justin and all of the details that slipped through the cracks.
Cooper and Hailey went head first into the controversy surrounding her engagement to Justin. She told the Call Her Daddy host, "First of all, I think one thing is that we're both really young." (24 and 21) "I think the timing was obviously very rapid and very fast which, now being four years past that and looking back on it, I totally get. I'm like 'yea that seemed really drastic and really crazy.' But that was what we felt was a decision between the two of us and it felt correct for the two of us at the time. And, clearly, we were right because here we are four years later."
The Rhode Skincare founder went into the different perceptions of her relationship saying, "The only people that really know the truth of the situation and what the timeline really was and how it happened and how it went down are me and him."
This conversation naturally led to the ultimate question from Cooper, "Were you ever with Justin romantically, at the same time as her?" Neither of the two specified who "her" is however, by the context surrounding the question (Cooper said, "your husband was in a very public relationship. they were kids. people were obsessed with the idea of them. people were confused about the timeline you were talking about like, 'is she a homewrecker?') we can only assume that she was referring to Justin's very famous ex, Selena Gomez.
"No. Not one time," Hailey firmly stated. Adding in, "when he and I ever started hooking up or like, anything of that sort, he was not ever in a relationship ever at any point. It's not my character to mess with someone's relationship. I would just never do that. I was raised better than that. I'm not interested in doing that and I never was."
"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. And, I had been involved with him since I was 18."
Hailey emphasized that the reason they were able to get back together at all was because the doorway to his and Gomez's relationship had been completely closed.
Selena Fights Back

Following the interview, Selena sent a message to her fans via TikTok live, “I think some of the things that I don’t even need to be aware of are just vile and disgusting, and it’s not fair, and no one, ever, should be spoken to in the manner that I’ve seen."
She continued, “All I have to say is, it’s incredibly ironic that I would release something that is all about kind words, ’cause that’s exactly what I want. 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.”
