Selena Gomez made it clear on Instagram that there was no drama between her and Bella Hadid after Bella deleted a photo Selena commented on. But there is a backstory that led to Selena making her final statement defending Bella.
Sources connected to Bella say that the model “actually went out of her way to reach out to Selena this weekend to squash any potential beef.”
Selena and Bella had public drama in 2017 when Gomez started dating Hadid’s ex-boyfriend, singer The Weeknd.
Both of these women unfollowed each other on Instagram, and that attracted the attention of fans. Selena and The Weeknd broke up in October 2017. This November, she re-followed Hadid on Instagram. She even commented “Stunning 😍” on one of her Instagrams this weekend, Bella took the post down shortly after. When a Selena Gomez Instagram fan account pointed out the model deleted the Instagram, Sel commented “That sucks 😢”
The sources revealed the two talked after Hadid took the post down when there was speculation it was because of Selena. It wasn’t. “Bella told Selena it was never about taking a shot, the model simply deleted because she didn’t like the pic,” the source added.
After the conversation, Gomez commented a second time on a fan account’s Instagram in order to explain she should not have spoken out without getting Bella’s side of the story and told the fans not to bully Hadid. “I shouldn’t have spoken without knowing the truth. I’m sorry,” Sel wrote. “Please don’t be hurtful. She is a wonderful person, and it was all a misunderstanding.”
