Over the last couple of weeks, lines have been drawn in the sand between Hailey Bieber, wife of pop sensation Justin Bieber, and Selena Gomez, Justin's ex. Fans have traced back Hailey's press activity for years and claim that she has a weird habit of copying Selena's clothes and interviews. There has been speculation that Hailey has shaded Selena in a TikTok alongside Kendall Jenner and in an Instagram story along with Kylie Jenner. They've all been accused of "mean girl" behavior, and allegedly this has resulted in Kylie and Hailey losing almost one million followers on Instagram—while Selena gains even more. There's even a Selena fandom theory that Justin married Hailey to get a U.S. citizenship, which is how she was given the nickname "visa." In the midst of this drama, Justin has remained quiet, not uttering a word about his wife and the supposed feud she is caught up in.
Justin Bieber Performs at Rolling Loud and Crowd Chants "F*ck Hailey!" as He Walks off the Stage
Justin posted a series of pictures to celebrate his birthday, but people couldn't help but notice that he barely included his wife in these photos. People in the comments asked where his wedding ring was and why Hailey wasn't front and center. The only photos that did include Hailey showed Justin without a smile or any affection toward her.
Justin made a surprise appearance at Rolling Loud, a festival in Los Angeles, and he performed with Don Toliver. Justin wore baggy jeans, a backwards baseball cap, and a tweed jacket. It's been six months since he performed a full set, but by all accounts, he was enjoying himself on stage. However, as he walked away, the crowd started chanting, "F*ck Hailey!" There were also scattered cries of "F*ck Hailey Bieber!"
People are pointing out that Justin didn't even turn around to defend his wife's honor, but perhaps he didn't even hear the crowd's chants. Some Selena fans claimed that Justin's own fans don't even like his wife, while others responded and reminded them that this was a surprise performance by Justin, so it's not like his fans were showing up to support him.
It was recently announced that Justin canceled his Justice World Tour; this came shortly after the recent drama between Hailey and Selena started. Fans shared screenshots of emails from Ticketmaster: "We regret to inform you that the Justin Bieber shows planned to take place at THE O2 arena have been cancelled. We understand you will be disappointed and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause." Justin hasn't spoken out personally about these cancellations, and he has reportedly postponed his tour five times already, once due to his struggle with Ramsey Hunt Disorder, a paralysis of the face.
In the last couple of weeks, Selena has spoken out and told everyone that she's taking a break from social media because she's "too old for this." She says things are getting "a little silly," and she wants to take a hiatus from the internet for a while. She didn't name her drama with Hailey specifically, but fans have no choice to but assume that it's related to her decision.
