Justin Bieber lashed out at Selena Gomez on Instagram in the most explosive fight of the summer, and now we might finally know why. So is The Biebs acting out in order to impress Sofia Richie?
Justin Bieber, 22, has been shading Selena Gomez, 24, because he’s sick of her desire to get “publicity” all the time, Us Weekly reported on Aug. 15. “Justin thinks Selena is all about attention so that’s why he said that,” a source told the mag. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!
“He remembers she always brought him out to be seen with him in the beginning, especially [the 2011] Vanity Fair Oscars party,” the insider added. “She was the one who made him go out with her to that. She was always about making their relationship public and getting publicity, and he thinks that’s what she is doing now.” Again, this is all coming from the guy who more or less lives for attention.
The mag added that Justin dissed Sel because he was defending Sofia Richie, 17, whom he’s been hanging out with nonstop. “He spoke up on Instagram because the Beliebers were threatening Sofia, writing really horrible things and really racist things,” the insider told Us. “Whenever he is with any girl, they attack whoever he is with. They did it to Selena for years. Sofia wasn’t used to it and suddenly they all started attacking her, so Justin said something to protect her.” That’s still no excuse for things turning as ugly as they did!
