‘I’ve Hated It Since The Beginning’: Hailey Bieber Opens Up About Alleged Feud W/ Selena Gomez

Hailey Bieber has slammed the “twisted narratives” that surfaced during her “made-up” beef with Selena Gomez, and I think this could possibly be the end of the feud rumours.

ICYMI: earlier this year, the pop culture world was buzzing after tensions reached boiling in the alleged beef between Hailey and Selena. Rumours of a feud have always been around, mostly because of their connection to former teen heartthrob Justin Bieber — with Selena dating him before he married Hailey.

Although both stars have previously addressed the feud, Hailey recently spoke out about the alleged beef on the Bloomberg Original series, The Circuit with Emily Chang.

After Hailey was asked about the eyebrow drama, the Rhode Skin founder got candid about the feud, labelling it as “awful” and saying that she’s “hated [the rumoured feud] since the beginning”.

Emily and Hailey also commented on the idea of two women “being pitted against each other because of a guy” and described it as a “frustrating old narrative”.

“It’s so disappointing that people still behave this way because of a, like, over a man,” Bieber said.

Although this could possibly be the end of the Gomez v Biebers saga, we must decompress all the shady history behind the two stars.

So if you’ve missed out on everything and you’re feeling a bit nosy, here’s a bite-sized timeline of Selena and Hailey’s (and everyone else who has chucked in their two cents) feud.

Your extensive timeline of Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber’s feud:

Starting with Hailey’s old tweets, let’s look back to her fangirling-era. This is when she was blatantly obsessed with J + S, but it was in fan/Stan way, not anything too intense. She would oftentimes tweet about them, but more often than not it was specifically towards Selena pic.twitter.com/X8NRgNEfvC

Speaking to the Call Her Daddy podcast, Hailey got candid about her marriage to Justin and where she stood with his long-term ex, Selena. In the interview, she was asked if Justin was with her at the same time he was with Selena, which Hailey denied.

“I would never—it’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship. I would just never do that. I was raised better than that. I’m not interested in doing that, and I never was. I think that there are situations where you can still kind of have back and forth with someone but even that was not the situation,” She said.

She also revealed that she has spoken to Selena since she married Justin, saying “it’s all respect, it’s all love” between them.

A couple of days after the Selena body-shaming debacle, Hailey and her friends (including Kendall Jenner) posted a TikTok lipsyncing the audio, “I’m not saying she deserves it, but God’s timing is always right!”

The TikTok was quickly deleted but OFC the internet girlies screen-record and reposted it, calling out Hailey for being shady.

February 23, 2023: Kylie Jenner enters the chat. 

Selena’s content on TikTok is packed with skits, lifestyle and beauty. In one TikTok, Selena talked about how she “accidentally over laminated her eyebrows.”

In a random, unprovoked, shady turn of events. Kylie Jenner, who is super close to Hailey, posted an Instagram Story with a caption that reads, “This was an accident???” The story was then followed by a closeup pic of Hailey and her eyebrows over Facetime.

After Selenators (Selena stans) called out Kylie’s post, the reality TV star spoke out via a TikTok comment section, labelling the so-called shade as “reaching.” Kylie also said that she “didn’t see Selena’s eyebrow post.”

Selena replied to Kylie’s comment, writing, “It’s all unnecessary. I’m a fan of Kylie!”

February 24, 2023: Selena Gomez takes a break from socials and defends superstar bestie, Taylor Swift.

In a TikTok live, Selena announced that she would be “taking a second from social media,” telling fans, “This is a little silly and I’m 30.”

A video of Hailey gagging at Taylor Swift began to make its rounds on TikTok. In Taylor’s defence, Selena commented on the TikTok, “So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game.”

February 28, 2023: Hailey Bieber gets called out for seemingly throwing shade at Selena Gomez again. 

Hailey reposted an IG story from the Style and The Beach which featured Hailey’s makeup brand, Rhode. In the video, Hailey used “Calm Down” by Rema, but not the version that features Selena Gomez.

Fans took this post as Hailey shading Selena.

As the drama unfolds on the internet, Hailey and Kylie have lost a bunch of followers.

March 9, 2023: Deuxmoi mentions four reasons why Selena is allegedly angry at Hailey, and TikTokers are calling Hailey for being shady for the billionth time.

In an episode of Deux U, a podcast curated by pop culture sleuth Deuxmoi, an insider reported four main reasons as to why Selena is upset with Hailey.

One of the reasons is because Selena allegedly believes that the Rhode Skin founder is subtly trolling her by mocking her social media posts.

“Selena thinks Hailey openly trolls her posts by putting up ones that are virtually identical a few days later,” the insider said.

After the podcast episode dropped, fans have pieced together two “coincidences” between Hailey and Selena’s posts.

The first one being Selena’s International Women’s Day post, where she uploaded a throwback pic and a lengthy caption the read, “Dear younger me, please don’t be afraid to ask for help.”

Three days later, Hailey posted a childhood pic on her Instagram Story, writing: “Hugging this little girl extra tight.”

@stephwithdadeets Lets add it to the list of “coincidences”… #haileybieber #selenagomez #coincidence #haileycopycat #foryou #trending #haileybaldwin #copycat #popculture #selenaandhaileydrama #greenscreen #popculturenews #stephwithdadeets ♬ original sound – Stephanie Tleiji

Another TikTok user, Michelle (@thickbrunette66), also pointed out that Hailey copied Selena via her Rhode Skin Instagram account.

In this comparison, Hailey was called out for doing the same pose as Selena in her Rare Beauty TikTok tutorial.

“And you may say I’m reaching but this comes after weeks of people in Hailey’s circle trolling Selena,” Michelle said.”This also comes after Deuxmoi said that Selena does believe that Hailey trolls her.”

April 12, 2023: Hailey Bieber drops new cooking show with HexClad titled What’s In My Kitchen? and Selena Fans think she’s copying the star. 

On Wednesday, Hailey debuted a full season of What’s In My Kitchen? on YouTube in partnership with HexClad. The official HexClad x What’s In My Kitchen? website says the show will feature Hailey as she “tackles a different recipe using HexClad’s innovative products, showing viewers how to make both new recipes along with some of her favourite dishes, including pizza toast, chicken wings, and more.”

Fans have accused Hailey of copying Selena Gomez because she too has her own cooking show which is quite successful. Selena + Chef follows the Only Murders In The Building star as she brushes up on her cooking skills alongside a special guest.

The HBO show features a wide range of celebs and close friends of Selena, including Gordon Ramsay, Taylor Swift (over the phone), and Jamie Oliver. Selena’s cooking gig also landed a few awards including an MTV Movie and TV Award, and a Critic’s Choice Real TV Award.

The tweets about Hailey’s What’s In My Kitchen? have been absolutely brutal, with most of them accusing her of copying Selena.

she wants her selena + chef moment SO BAD

IMO, the whole the comparisons are quite a reach.

What’s In My Kitchen? is most definitely a spin-off of her interview series Who’s In My Bathroom?. Hailey and Selena’s shows are also completely different. Selena is literally “+ Chef” where as Hailey’s is just Hailey, and maybe guest here or there.

June 30, 2023: Hailey slams “made-up” feud with Selena in an interview on The Circuit.

In an interview on The Circuit with Emily Chang, Hailey gots extremely candid about her thoughts on the alleged feud between her and Selena, after she was asked about the TikTok eyebrow drama.

“I don’t think that this is about me, Hailey Bieber, and Selena Gomez. This is not about this pitting between two women and division between two women,” Hailey said.

“It’s about the vile, disgusting hatred that can come from completely made-up and twisted and perpetuated narratives. That can be really dangerous.”

The Rhode Skin founder briefly touched on the IG statements that she and Selena made in an attempt to stop the rumours.

“I don’t like this whole idea of ‘team this person’ and ‘team this person’. I’m just not about that,” she added.

“I want to be able to bring people together. I think that was a really important moment for people to see that you can do that and you can bring people together and it doesn’t have to be about this divisive nature.”

Chang and Bieber then labelled the idea of two women fighting over a guy a “frustrating old narrative”.

“I hate it. I’ve hated it since the beginning,” she said.

“And I think that kind of goes back to a little bit of just being misunderstood when it’s like time and time again I don’t know why I keep having to say, and we keep having to say, that there is ‘no issue’ and ‘there is no problem’. It’s so disappointing that people still behave this way over a man. It’s the world we live in, unfortunately.”

Honestly, as an onlooker of the drama, I genuinely think that Hailey and Selena have hashed out the beef behind closed doors.

Hopefully one day we can see them collaborate on a project, officially putting those beef rumours to bed.
