From Jennifer Lopez to Kylie Jenner, a growing number of celebs are using 'Instagram therapy' to rubbish rumors
On several instances, celebrities have taken to social media to make amends and perhaps even over-compensate for rumors making the rounds about their relationships
Justin Bieber went all out in a rant defending his wife Hailey Bieber in an Instagram post and comment, after haters of the couple ridiculed Hailey and said the singer still loves his ex, Selena Gomez. Justin went all out, blasted the user by replying to their comment and even shared a screenshot. "Hailey is my Bride period if you dont like that or support that that means you don’t support me and if you don’t support me your not a fan nor a good person," he went on to say.
This post, interestingly, comes at a time when there are ongoing rumours about the couple going through a rough patch. Granted the couple has been open about having a "hard marriage", trust issues and even mental health.
"Fighting is good," Justin said to in an interview with Vogue. "Doesn’t the Bible talk about righteous anger? We don’t want to lose each other. We don’t want to say the wrong thing, and so we’ve been struggling with not expressing our emotions, which has been driving me absolutely crazy because I just need to express myself, and it’s been really difficult to get her to say what she feels."
Amid these rumours, Hailey took to Instagram to put the old adage to test - Not everything on the internet is true. The newly-weds are not the only couple in town to put rumours to rest on the internet. Last week, Travis Scott shut down rumours about his and partner Kylie Jenner's split with a single comment - a lovestruck emoji to a steaming hot picture the social media icon posted on her Instagram.
This was in light of rumous making the rounds that Jenner has proof Scott cheated on her. Late last year, when rapper Offset was accused of cheating on rapper-wife Cardi B, he tried making amends on social media, sharing a picture with the caption stating he vows to "change his ways." Around the same time, Cardi B announced they were getting a divorce following the banter about Offset cheating on her.
The breakup was announced after a year together and the birth of their daughter, Kulture. “So everybody been bugging me and everything, and you know I’ve been trying to work things out with my baby father for a hot minute now," she said. "And we’re really good friends and you know, we’re really good business partners—you know he’s always somebody that I went to, to talk to, and we got a lot of love for each other but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.”
“And it’s nobody fault," she continued. "It’s just like, I guess we just grew out of love, but we’re not together anymore. I don’t know it might take time to get a divorce, and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father and yeah." Offset commented "y'all won" under the video in a screenshot Comments By Celebs shared.
Cardi put an end to their divorce talk by sharing an Instagram story saying "I wanna go home" written over a picture of husband Offset and daughter Kulture.
So, it looks like celebrities have figured out a way to save the public's perceptions of their relationships without the press. From going all out on social media to making amends to shutting down rumors, it works.
