New couple alert!
Sorry ladies, but Justin Bieber is once again a taken man. The 22-year-old singer has gotten together with 17-year-old Sofia Richie. The two first sparked romance rumors earlier this month and have been spotted out and about in Tokyo this past week.
But not everyone is supportive of the new relationship. After posing a slew of black and white Instagram selfies with Sofia, the "Sorry" singer was attacked on the social media site by a number of his fans. Justin's comments have been flooded with messages of hate and snake emojis to slam his new girl. The Biebs certainly wasn't ok with it. He took to Instagram and threatened to make his page private if the unkind words continued.
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 A photo posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on
"I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand," Justin captioned a photo of himself with Sofia. "If you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like." The drama only escalated when Justin's exes got involved.
Selena Gomez chimmed in, commenting, "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."
Justin was clearly not happy with Selena's opinion and and replied to her writing, "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still trying to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I'm not one for anyone receiving hate."
Selena, who split with Justin back in 2014, fired back with another shocking comment, "Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love."
Then, Justin clapped back, accusing Selena of cheating on him with Zayn Malik from "One Direction." "I cheated.. oh I forgot about You and Zayn?" he wrote.
Justin's other ex Hailey Baldwin seems to be Team Selena. The 19-year-old model posted a since-deleted lengthy, cryptic quote on her own Instagram about owning up to mistakes and not pointing the finger at others.
"We've all had our fair share of things we've done, both good and bad. What makes the present so powerful is when we take complete responsibility for our actions, we allow ourselves self-growth," she wrote. "Misplacing the blame onto someone else isn't going to get you to the next stage in life, so try not to manipulate a situation to make yourself look better."
"The truth always come[s] to light, so it's better just to own it," the model's quote continued. "We're all guilty of things, but show people you have enough love and respect for yourself to be honest about it and learn from it."
Fans were quick to point out that Justin unfollowed Hailey just a few days ago and a day later, the beauty unfollowed her ex.
