Could there be a feud brewing between Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber?
Hollywood Life is alleging that there may be some bad blood brewing between Ariana and Justin in recent months, citing Bieber’s recent performance with Grande’s ex-boyfriend, Big Sean, during a recent stop on his Purpose tour as a sign of their alleged feud.
According to a source who spoke to the site, “Justin had the most amazing time performing with Big Sean and will without a doubt invite him back on stage during his Purpose tour,” but added that fans should definitely not expect to see Ariana Grande pop up at any future shows.
“Justin will continue to surprise fans at his concerts with specials guests. However, Ariana Grande won’t be one of them,” a source close to Bieber revealed.
Hollywood Life previously claimed that Bieber’s recent performance with Big Sean was Justin’s way of announcing to fans that the two had ended their past drama after the two supposedly began feuding following Justin’s overly suggestive on-stage performance with Ariana following her split from the rapper back in 2015.
But while Hollywood Life didn’t reveal what may have caused the supposed drama between Ariana and Justin recently, this isn’t the first time rumors of a feud between the two have swirled.
Radar Online reported last month that Ariana opted to say bye bye to Scooter Braun, her former manager who also manages Bieber. The outlet even speculated back in February that Justin may have been the reason behind Grande’s decision to part ways with Scooter.
The site alleged at the time that Grande may have opted to terminate her contract with Braun after a slew of recent run-ins with Justin, including an awkward social media exchange that took place back in January.
The two came to blows on social media earlier this year after the star appeared to get a little hot under the collar over a flirty Instagram video Ariana posted of herself on the media-sharing site.
According to a screen capture of the video’s comments section captured by Twitter user @ladiebuteraz, Bieber commented on Ariana’s sexy video, “Damn Ariana u look so good,” which caused a whole lot of drama for Grande and boyfriend Ricky Alvarez.
Taking to Twitter following Justin’s comments, Ariana wrote coyly “lol no,” which many fans speculated was Ariana’s candid response to Bieber’s flirty comments.
“Not today satan!!!!!! gtg finish this music & live my cute, drama free life!!” Grande continued in a separate Twitter post.
Alvarez also called out the “What Do You Mean?” singer on the site following his flirty Instagram comments, tagging Justin in a comment where he candidly wrote, “Keep looking player… I already told you she does.”
But while it appears that there may be drama between Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber now, it actually hasn’t always been that way between the two pop superstars.
Ariana even previously defended Bieber in a 2013 interview with Reuters, where she admitted that she thinks the singer is a “good person” and confessed that she doesn’t think he deserves the constant hate he receives on social media.
“I know him and he’s a good person. He really is,” Ariana Grande told Reuters of Bieber at the time, admitting that she thinks he’s “a good guy and he doesn’t deserve what he’s going through.”
“He can do whatever he wants. He’s doing the same thing as every other boy in the world, you know,” Ariana continued. “He’s just under a microscope and scrutinized by people who don’t know him.”
