On Thursday, Raquelle Stevens — one of Gomez’s closest friends — posted a photo of the star enjoying a celebratory dinner with her girlfriends after dropping her highly anticipated music, including the upbeat anthem “Look At Her Now.”
Eagle-eyed fans noticed Baldwin, who denied earlier this week she had shaded 27-year-old Gomez, hit “like” on the post.
On Tuesday night, Baldwin, 22, posted a screenshot of the song “I’ll Kill You” by Summer Walker to her Instagram Story — causing fans to question if she was responding to Gomez’s new lyrics, which were seemingly inspired by her previous on-and-off relationship with Baldwin’s husband Justin Bieber.
The model reportedly responded to the accusations with a since-deleted comment on Just Jared‘s Instagram page.
“Please stop with this nonsense… there is no ‘response,’” Baldwin wrote, according to a screenshot obtained by Just Jared. “This is complete BS.”
Gomez’s two new tracks include revealing lyrics that detail a toxic relationship, and many fans are convinced it’s about her on-and-off relationship with Bieber, 25. The pop star proposed to Baldwin just months after calling it quits again with Gomez in March 2018.
“I feel a sense of relief. I wrote this song over a year ago … and I feel completely different from when I wrote it,” Gomez said Thursday morning on On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “It’s more beautiful for me because I know exactly where I was when I wrote it and how I felt.”
Saying she would “absolutely not” have released it at the time she wrote the track, the entertainer revealed it took her a “long time” to heal from her wounds. But now, “I’m smiling,” she added.
Looking back, Gomez — who shot both the music videos for her new tracks on an iPhone 11 Pro — says the difficult moments in her life have now turned into “something positive.”
“All I know is that these two songs were me wrapping up a chapter in a pretty little bow, and the rest of the album is just all about where I am now and where I’m going,” she added. “In my opinion, these are great songs, but I’ve saved the best for later.”
