When Justin Bieber posted six new photos of himself with Lionel Richie’s 17 year-old daughter, Sofia, who he’s reportedly dating, many fans voiced their disapproval. Bieber reacted with dismay.
“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate,” he wrote in the caption of a photo of him and Sophia together in a car. “This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.”
That’s when Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, pop star Selena Gomez, entered with a backhanded piece of advice.
“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 and supported you before any one ever did,” she wrote
Bieber wasn’t amused and venomously snapped back. “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love,” he wrote.
Miffed by Bieber’s accusation that she “used” him for “attention,” Selena responded, “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. All love.”
The ball’s back in your court, Justin.
Selena has edited her reply to Justin's post. "They love you and supported you before any one ever did". https://t.co/xnfnWQoEjC—
