THAT'S ALL FOLKS! Selena Gomez removes last Justin Bieber post from Instagram, a year after they parted ways
The picture, which Gomez posted on Bieber's birthday in 2018, featured her laughing as she pointed to a polaroid shot of Bieber which was stuck on her forehead.
Selena Gomez seems to have excised Justin Bieber from her mind and her Instagram as well. The star removed what appeared to be the last and final picture of her former boyfriend in her Instagram handle.
The post had Gomez wishing her then-boyfriend a happy birthday after they got back together in 2017. The picture featured Gomez laughing as she pointed to a polaroid shot of Bieber which was stuck on her forehead. She had captioned the image which she had shared on March 1, 2018, "March 1, 1994 someone I know that happens to be super cool was born. Boom."
The former couple called off their relationship soon after, and Bieber went on to rekindle his romance with another ex, Hailey Baldwin, whom he later married.
Bieber and Baldwin got engaged last July and exchanged their vows in a courthouse in September. Bieber has commented on his former relationship with Selena and has said, "I absolutely loved and love Selena she will always hold a place in my heart, but I am head over heels in love with my wife and she is absolutely the BEST THING that has ever happened to me period...."
He had clapped back at an Instagram user who claimed that Bieber was not in love with Baldwin and married her to get back at Gomez. Bieber responded saying, "Ur immature the fact that you have an account dedicated to dissing my wife and I is absolutely absurd why would I dedicate my whole life to someone in marriage to get back at my ex, anyone who believes this is mean spirited or 10 years old or younger because a logical person doesn't talk or think this way u should be ashamed to yourself really."
He also slammed people for commenting on his relationship with his wife and said, "This is a reply to all immature sick people who send Hailey hurtful messages like ' he always goes back to Selena' or 'Selena is better for him' YOU HAVE NO IDEA MY LIFE AND WHATs good for me. Hailey is my Bride period if you don’t 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."
Gomez, on the other hand, has not spoken out about her relationship with Bieber and it is unlikely she will. She has been very cautious when it comes to social media and had also taken a break last year to stay at a treatment facility when she battled anxiety and depression.
While at a press conference, Gomez shared, "I think our world is going through a lot. I would say for my generation, specifically, social media has really been terrible. It does scare me when you see how exposed these young boys and young girls are. They are not aware of the news. I think it's dangerous for sure. I don't think people are getting the right information sometimes," as reported by Variety.
"For me, I like to be intentional with it. It just scares me. I'll see these young girls at meet and greets. They are devastated, dealing with bullying and not being able to have their own voice. It can be great in moments. I would be careful and allow yourself some time limits of when you should use it," she added.
