They used to be Hollywood’s “it couple”, but now Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are engaged in a war of words on Instagram.
The “Hands To Myself” singer told her former flame to stop posting pictures of him and his new rumoured girlfriend, Sofia Richie, after he threaten to change his Instagram account to private when fans begun hurling insults at Richie.
Although both Bieber and Richie have insisted that they’re just close friends, the dating rumours only escalated when the 22-year-old singer posted 6 pictures of them together in a row. Many Bieliebers were upset, partly for the speedy relationship since he was recently seen naked with another model in Hawaii recently.
The fans’ comments became too much for the star which prompted him to send a message to his followers. “I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate. This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like,” he wrote.

Not long after, it appears that Bieber’s ex, Gomez, commented on his Instagram, saying, “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you. (sic).”
This apparently didn’t sit well with Bieber when he fired back at the brunette beauty, accusing her of using him to gain fame, back when they were dating. “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love,” he said, before adding, “I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers.”
While Gomez has yet to respond to Bieber directly, the 24-year-old singer posted a collage of pictures featuring the singer interacting with her fans at numerous events.
