Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber have been pitted against each other over the years especially when the Canadian singer, Justin Bieber, married Model, Hailey Baldwin a month after he and Gomez broke things off. It was very bizarre and had sparked a lot of curiosity with many fans especially when Hailey had been a big fan of the two when they were both together and would constantly talk about how much she loved seeing them together, or how good they looked together.

This all began when Gomez had posted a tiktok where she joked about having over-laminated her eyebrows. Just a couple hours later, Hailey posted a screenshot to her Instagram of a FaceTime with her and friend Kylie Jenner with an up close shot of their eyebrows. The next day, Jenner and Gomez both came online and refuted the allegations and Jenner proceeded to say that people saying that she and Hailey were talking about Selena was a “reach”. While Selena countered the Rumors, saying it was unnecessary and that she was a fan of Jenner. However, how could it be just a reach? When their Instagram story was posted on the same day as the video from Gomez. It does not really sound like a coincidence. 

Gomez had commented on videos referencing the drama, as well as defending her longtime friend, Taylor Swift, on a video where a fan had posted of Hailey making a gagging motion after Swift’s name had been mentioned. Gomez called Swift “one of the best in the game” before finally announcing on Feb 23 that she would be taking a break from social media stating “I’m 30, I’m too old for this.”  However, that did not stop the rumors from growing and on Feb 28, Hailey posted an Instagram story with Rema’s song calm down but the version without Gomez’s feature and some fans took it as a dig at Gomez. 

On March 24, both Selena and Hailey called for an end to the drama after Gomez had taken to Instagram stating that Hailey had reached out to her telling her that she had received death threats which Gomez condemned in her post stating “I always advocate for kindness and really want this all to stop.” Hailey then thanked Gomez for calling an end to the “ongoing narrative between her and I” and urged people to be careful about what they post on social media. In addition, they followed each other’s social media accounts, putting everything to rest. 

I think Hailey did this for publicity, and what better person than Gomez herself as we all know that she has all the publicity, from Barney to Disney channel, even music influence. Both are linked together through Justin Bieber, since he is the ex-boyfriend of Gomez and now husband of Hailey. The drama got Hailey the attention she wanted but it also caused her to lose followers and in turn helped Gomez to become the most followed woman on Instagram, with 381 million followers.
