Kill em with kindness – "That's exactly what I want," says Selena Gomez, following Hailey Bieber's tell-all Call Me Daddy interview.
The model told podcast host Alex Cooper earlier this week that there's this perception from die-hard Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber fans – the two dated on-again, off-again for eight years before their split in 2018 and his marriage to Hailey Baldwin, now Bieber – that she "stole" the Sorry singer from the Gomez.
"I guess maybe that just comes from the fact that they wished he had ended up with somebody else. And that's fine. You can wish that all you want but that's just not the case," she said, before opening up about the hate she's received from Selena Gomez fans.
Gomez, in a TikTok live on Thursday, has since seemingly responded, noting that her Rare Beauty brand stands for kindness and kind words.
"It's not fair because no one should ever be spoken to in the manner that I've seen," she said. "If you support Rare, I cannot thank you enough, but know that you are also representing what it means — and that is: Words matter. Truly matter."
An old video resurfaced of Gomez addressing the haters before after the model said the actor had not publicly defended her, though they have spoken in recent years.
Bieber cleared the air, saying: "I just respect her, there's no drama, personally."
