The Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber long-rumored drama continues in 2023 after their feud has been speculated since 2018. 

Here is a timeline of events that recently occurred from Feb. 22 until now. However, the drama started when Hailey “stole” Justin Bieber from Selena. 

On Feb. 22, Selena Gomez posted on TikTok how she accidentally laminated her brows too much. Kylie Jenner gets in the mix and posts a TikTok of her face saying “this is an accident???” Within the same day, Kylie posts a screenshot of her and Hailey with their brows up close on camera, which fans state she is shading Selena. 

“This is reaching, no shade towards Selena ever and I didn’t see her eyebrow posts,” Kylie states on TikTok. “You guys are making something out of nothing, this is silly.” 

Eventually, Selena got on TikTok to address that the feud rumors were unnecessary and tried to shut them down. Taylor Swift’s name got in the picture when Selena posted a comment saying “so sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game.” This started when an old video in 2017 came out when Hailey made a gagging reaction to hearing Taylor Swift’s name during the Drop the Mic rap battle. 

Selena then announced how she would get off social media while many fans questioned if she would delete all of her social media due to this drama being bad for her mental health. Before she got off social media, Selena said in a TikTok Live she wanted to take a break from everything going on. 

I’m 30 and am too old for this. But I love you so much and I’ll see you guys sooner than later,” Selena said. 

It didn’t end for Hailey, who kept stirring up the drama by throwing more shade at Selena, making it obvious to fans. According to Glamour, Hailey posted the song “Calm Down” by Rema, with the song featuring Selena on her Instagram story.  Sounds like a coincidence.

At Justin Bieber’s birthday party, he gave souvenir lighters to those who attended his party that said “I’m so grateful that I didn’t end up with what I thought I wanted.” Fans questioned if Hailey was in charge of making those. 

Back when Justin and Selena were dating, Hailey was a Jelena fan and there is footage of her copying the same things Selena has said or done. Did she want to be Selena Gomez so badly? 

At the end of the day, Selena Gomez gained followers and Hailey Bieber lost followers. Hailey is now hated on the internet for bullying Selena, and many are speaking up for Selena. What are your thoughts?
