Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber will forever be connected. Yes, they haven't actually been an official couple for a long time and Sel is happily dating The Weeknd now, but no matter how far removed they are from their on-and-off-again roller coaster romance too many of us got severely invested in, Jelena still manages to pop up. Poor Selena just recently had to deal with her Instagram account getting hacked, with the hacker choosing to upload revealing photos of her ex. A bit awkward. But the songstress has once again in typical Selena fashion squashed the idea that she's still hung up on Justin and all the drama that surrounded their relationship. And it all went down on Instagram.
So what did the "Fetish" singer actually do? Well, she liked a photo on IG. I know, totally normal behavior but it's who is in the photo that is noteworthy. Selena double-tapped a pic her friend and former Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson posted that features Ash posing with Hailey Baldwin along with another friend, and she wrote "family" as the caption.
It's no secret Selena is friends with Ashley, but since Hailey once dated Justin too, you wouldn't think Sel would go out of her way to like her friend's pic that features your most famous ex-boyfriend's one-time love too. This just adds more solid proof that Selena is #OverIt when it comes to drama with Justin. There was that time she did call out the Biebs for flaunting his then-girlfriend Sofia Richie all over Instagram and threatening to delete his account because fans weren't really happy with the way he was showing her off and Selena became a figure in the Belieber fandom for defending them. She later apologized for getting involved and since then, has stayed rather mum on te comings and goings of Justin's love life. Plus, Hailey said back in 2016 to US Weekly she never had any sort of issue with Selena.
"I think it sucks that people try to start things like that. There's never any truth to that, first of all. She's a lovely girl. She's very kind. Her and I have a lot of mutual friends and it's all cool between everybody. We run in the same circles," Hailey said about the feud rumors.
They both did attend the same church conference that Justin was at too just last month, so perhaps there never really was any leftover unresolved feelings. When the "Friends" singer opened up to GQ back in February of 2016, he made it clear he will always respect Selena and what they had together, despite having a "bad" breakup.
"We don’t talk often, but we’re cordial. If she needs something, I’m there for her. If I need something, she’s there for me," he said. And as for Hailey? While they're no longer together, at that time, he remained hopeful that one day they could reconnect.
"What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged. It’s really hard to fix wounds like that. It’s so hard.… I just don’t want to hurt her," Justin said.
While this a bit of a tangled web, it's important to note that both Selena and Hailey are cool with each other despite sharing a very famous ex. Selena has left all the Jelena drama behind her once and for all.
