Ever since Justin Bieber, 22, and Sofia Richie, 17, were spotted holding hands in Laguna Beach, A LOT of people have shared A LOT of opinions about their relationship — and most of it’s been negative! As a result, the “Cold Water” singer has hired his personal bodyguard to watch over Sofia and make sure she stays safe! WOW, we haven’t seen Justin this smitten since the Selena Gomez days! Sure, he’s dated around a bit with other ladies like Sahara Ray and Hailey Baldwin, but none of them ever received THIS kind of special treatment. Sounds like Sofia is one lucky lady — and we’re MEGA jealous!

Does this mean Justin’s bad boy phase is over? All signs point to yes! It’s pretty clear that Sofia and Justin can’t get enough of each other, because even when they’re apart, she still finds time to film herself singing along to his music on the radio. But unfortunately, all their public displays of affection have been rubbing ex-girlfriend Selena the wrong way — and she decided to say something about it!

Justin And Selena: All The Feuds They’ve Had Over The Years

The “Come And Get It” singer wrote, “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol. it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you,” she said on Instagram, but it didn’t stop Justin from deleting his account all together. Selena must have felt bad for putting him on blast because she went on to apologize, commenting, “What I said was selfish and pointless.” But it was too late to say “Sorry!” Now, reports claim that Justin has been ignoring Selena’s calls. Who knows how long his feud will continue, so it’s a damn good thing that #BieChie (Bieber + Richie) have a little extra security around.

HollywoodLifers, do you think Sofia could be “The One?”
