Is Selena Gomez clapping back at Justin Bieber for his relationship with Hailey Baldwin? She may be. Although the singer has yet to speak out about her ex’s new romance, which began a short time after she and Bieber were spotted together in Los Angeles, she recently spent time with Orlando Bloom, who he has allegedly feuded with in the past.
“Happy bday Orly -celebrate kindness and who you are,” Selena Gomez wrote along with a photo on Instagram on January 14.

According to a report by Hollywood Life, Selena Gomez celebrated Bloom’s 39th birthday with him in Los Angeles last night, just days after the two attended the same Golden Globes party, also in Los Angeles. The event also came just after Selena Gomez posed for a photo with Bloom’s ex-wife, Miranda Kerr, who was previously linked to Bieber.
The foursome’s drama amongst one another began in July 2014 when Bieber and Bloom were reportedly involved in a fight in Ibiza. According to a TMZ report at the time, Bloom threw a punch at Bieber, who ducked and later left Cipriani, where the two were joined by a number of celebrities, including Paris Hilton and P. Diddy. Also in the report, one eyewitness claimed Selena Gomez’s ex offered Bloom his hand, which Bloom denied, while another eyewitness alleged Bieber was harassing Bloom and proclaiming he slept with Kerr.
A third source added another account.
Bieber “purposely bumped into Orlando on his way in and made it look like he didn’t. Then some sort of swing from Orlando happened and the incident you see on the tape is at the end. The swing was a punch motion but in mid-throw Orlando realized what he was doing and pulled back, making it look awkward and something that didn’t connect,” a Hollywood Life source added.
Whatever the case, Bloom appeared to get revenge on Bieber just months later, when he and Selena Gomez were spotted at a Los Angeles airport together. While the two were both flying to Vancouver for business, their joint outing led to rumors of a potential dating relationship.
Then, days later, Bloom spoke out, claiming he and Selena Gomez weren’t dating but simply attending an event together.
Since facing rumors regarding her relationship with Bloom and her possible reconciliation with Bieber, which is clearly no longer possible as he just enjoyed a romantic getaway with Baldwin for the holidays, Selena Gomez has been linked to Charlie Puth. However, as OK! Magazine revealed on January 14, she set the record straight during a recent interview with E! News, claiming they aren’t at all romantic, “that’s for sure!”
In other Selena Gomez news, the singer is rumored to be on the outs with her longtime friend, Taylor Swift, after being spotted with Swift’s nemesis, Katy Perry, during a recent event.

According to a Hollywood Life report, after appearing in Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, which was allegedly aimed at Perry, Selena Gomez reportedly called Perry to assure her that despite Swift’s reported feelings, there is no bad blood between her and Perry. However, when asked about the issue, Selena Gomez claimed she and Perry never had that particular conversation.
“That’s false. I love Katy,” Selena Gomez told New Zealand radio show The Edge Afternoons. “I just talked to her. She’s amazing. But I didn’t talk about that, but I just talked to her. She’s awesome.”
