UPDATE: November 19, 2019, at 7:56 a.m.:
In a move that will hopefully put an end to this drama, TMZ reports that Bella Hadid reached out to Selena Gomez to clear up any confusion over her deleting the Instagram post with Gomez's comment on it. "We're told Bella told Selena it was never about taking a shot, the model simply deleted because she didn't like the pic," TMZ wrote.
So there you go.
UPDATE: November 18, 2019, at 4:38 p.m.: Selena Gomez says Bella Hadid deleting the Instagram with her comment on it was a misunderstanding. "I shouldn't [have] spoken without knowing the truth," she said.
Now, whether she intended to or not, the pop star finds herself in the middle of a possible internet drama with supermodel Bella Hadid. As with so many things online, there's a lot of speculation going on here, but let's see if we can break this down for anyone who doesn't follow these two closely.
This drama seems to be rooted in the 2017 tabloid love triangle that happened between Hadid, The Weekend, and Gomez. For context, Hadid and The Weeknd have been dating on and off since 2015. But when they were apart in January 2017, he started seeing Gomez, at which time Hadid unfollowed Gomez on Instagram. Then Gomez and The Weeknd unfollowed Hadid. Last year Hadid and The Weeknd got back together before breaking up, yet again. At some point in between, Gomez refollowed Hadid on IG and, over the weekend, commented, "Stunning 😍" on one of her posts.
Then, without explanation, Hadid deleted the entire post. While many online surmised this was because of Gomez's comment, there's no way to know Hadid's true intention. Whatever the case, Gomez is bummed about the move. A fan account, @selssbrina, published a post about the situation and mentioned that Hadid had deleted the post Gomez commented on. The "Look at Her Now" singer saw said fan post and left a simple but telling reply: "That sucks 😢."
But don't take this as a sign that Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid are feuding. Like we said, Hadid could've deleted her post for a number of reasons. And while Gomez's reply to the fan account implies she's hurt, we don't know anything for sure. SelGo has made it clear in the past, though, that she has no time for petty fodder like this. When fans tried to pit her and Hailey Bieber against each other following the release of her song "Love You to Lose Me" (which is probably about Justin), she shut it down.
"I am so grateful for the response of the song," she said on Instagram Stories. "However, I will never stand for women tearing other women down. So please be kind to everyone. Please be kind, I don't like seeing people being disrespectful or rude to other people, so please don't do that."
