Selena Gomez only wanted peace, but she only got drama from Bella Hadid in return.
Hadid recently shared a picture of her from her Dior photoshoot to her 26.7 million followers on Instagram over the weekend. Selena, who is known for consistently empowering women, complimented the model's look by commenting "Stunning."
Fans of Gomez raised their eyebrows when they noticed that the post has been taken down shortly after Gomez made an innocent comment for the model.
Fortunately, one fan account luckily saved a screenshot of the photo and shared it on its Instagram account alongside the caption "She's all about supporting women. You all just can't take it nicely. Btw Ms. Hadid deleted the post."
Gomez responded to the post, saying "That sucks [crying emoji]."
However, Selena appeared to be repentant over her two-word reply since it caused her fans to throw shades at Hadid. Just like what she did for Hailey Baldwin-Bieber, she defended the model by leaving another statement.
"NO. I shouldn't have spoken without knowing the truth. I'm sorry. Please don't be hurtful," the 27-year-old singer said.
The Root of All Issues
Hadid publicly supported Gomez when she liked an Instagram post of the singer's look for the Cannes Film Festival in May this year. So when she deleted her post that the "Kill 'Em with Kindness" singer commented on, rumors surfaced that they might have some unresolved dispute being the exes of The Weeknd.
Gomez and Hadid made headlines in 2017 when Selena started dating The Weeknd, Bella's ex-boyfriend.
Hadid unfollowed Gomez in January 2017 after she learned about the dating news. Two months later, Gomez and The Weeknd both unfollowed her on Instagram as their relationship grew stronger.
Months after spending time together, the lovers decided to take separate ways in October 2017. Just a year after breaking up with Gomez, The Weeknd started dating Hadid again (they reportedly broke up this summer once more).
Fans speculated that all the on-and-off relationship and follow-unfollow scenarios made Hadid delete her recent Instagram post even when Gomez only tried to finally reconcile with her.
Another possible reason came out when Hailey's name joined the talk.
Justin Bieber, Selena's ex, is now Hailey's husband. Hadid, for what it is worth, is Hailey's best friend.
With that said, fans theorized that Selena's past relationship with her best friend's husband also pushed Hadid to shoo Gomez away.
As of this moment, only the model knows the truth behind her gesture towards Gomez.
