Social media users believe Hailey Bieber shaded Selena Gomez in a now-deleted clip she posted on TikTok. Hailey is seen standing alongside models Kendall Jenner and Justine Skye in the video. The audio, “I’m not saying she deserves it, but I’m saying God’s timing is always right,” plays in the background as Hailey and Kendall sip their drinks.
Riri’s Tea on TikTok shared the clip on the platform and garnered millions of views, and it even managed to reach Hailey herself. While some people speculated the clip was directed toward Selena, the 26-year-old explained that it wasn't made for anyone. “I never comment on this type of thing but we were just having a girls night and did a random tiktok sound for fun,” wrote Hailey. “It's not directed at anyone.”
But people remain unconvinced, especially since the singer took the time to address the video. Many believe that Hailey’s “God’s timing is always right” post references the online bullying Selena faced for her weight fluctuations. The TikTok below showed pictures of Selena's bikini pics that prompted body-shaming comments, followed by Hailey's infamous "mean girl" video. The “Love You Like a Love Song” singer commented on it, saying, “It's ok! I don't let these things get me down! Be nice to everyone! x.”
It seems Selena has been struggling with image issues lately. She went live recently to discuss her appearance with her audience. The 30-year-old said that she tends to “hold a lot of water weight” when she takes her lupus medication and offered support to her fans. “I just wanted to say and encourage anyone out there who feels any sort of shame for exactly what they're going through, and nobody knows the real story,” she said.
She continued, “I just want people to know that you're beautiful and you're wonderful. And yeah, we have days where maybe we feel like sh*t, but I would much rather be healthy and take care of myself, and my medications are important,” Selena explained. “And I believe they are what helps me."
“I’m not a model, never will be,” Selena added. “And I think they're awesome, mind you. I just am definitely not that.”
