Selena had started dating Bieber at the time Tyler’s graphic tweets went viral. The ‘Igor’ hitmaker had addressed his tweets in a 2013 interview with the radio talk show Power 106. “We don’t really get along. She don’t like me. We don’t like each other ‘cause [I’m] kicking it with Justin [Bieber], like that’s my homeboy. She always be mean muggin’ me. Like why are you hating on me? We’re just hanging out, we’re trying to play Xbox.”
