Hailey Baldwin appears to be lashing out on Instagram after ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber was spotted with his rumored new girlfriend, and her former friend, Sofia Richie.
Fans took to social media to upload screen shots of comments allegedly posted on the photo sharing site by Hailey after Bieber was spotted out with Sofia this week, where Baldwin reportedly asked the poster to “delete this s***.”
According to Hollywood Life, Hailey lashed out at fans on the social media site amid the dating reports, commenting on a snap of Justin and his rumored new girlfriend “Yo please delete this s***” and “I don’t want it on my timeline.”
It’s not clear how Hailey got tangled in the Justin and Sofia snaps, but it’s thought that Baldwin may have been tagged in a photo of Bieber and Richie on the social media site by a fan.
Hailey has yet to confirm the authenticity of the comments, though Hollywood Life was quick to note that there’s a chance Baldwin’s alleged comments could have photoshopped.
“There is a chance that the comments were just the photoshop creation of a thirsty fan, though we can totally see why Hailey would be pretty pissed about Justin and Sofia,” the site reported.
But while it’s not clear if Hailey’s comments were real or fake, that didn’t stop some of Baldwin and Bieber’s most dedicated fans from taking to Twitter to defend the model when it came to her alleged Sofia comments.
“Hailey Baldwin is better than Sofia Richie. No offense,” Twitter user @onlyKYLABraza tweeted out amid the drama, and Baldwin fan @FestiveBieber wrote on the social media site, “Does this Sofia Richie girl think she’s famous and can now interact and chill will ALL of Justin’s friends?? @haileybaldwin bust her a** pls.”
“As much as I don’t like Hailey, I don’t blame her for being upset… y’all can tell she really likes him and he just dropped her,” Twitter user @sensualchanel added, and @lillymalone30 tweeted out, “Hailey has every right to be mad at Justin! And frankly I don’t blame her at all! @haileybaldwin Love u girl.”
Hailey Baldwin’s alleged comments come amid reports suggesting that she and Sofia Richie were actually friends and reportedly “grew up together” before Entertainment Tonight suggested that Sofia had begun dating Hailey’s ex.
Hollywood Life published a snap of Justin Bieber’s current and ex-girlfriend together earlier this year. The outlet also claimed that the two were spotted partying together at the MET Gala in New York back in May.
Social media users also claimed that Baldwin and Richie were once friends, with one fan claiming that the two “grew up together” while others posted collages of photos of Hailey and Sofia together at various events.
Hailey and Justin kept their romance pretty private since they were first spotted together and rumored to be dating earlier this year, though Baldwin did admit in an April interview with Marie Claire that it was “hard” to date Bieber because of the intense media attention surrounding him.
“I don’t want attention out of dating somebody,” Hailey told the magazine of her dating life with Justin, revealing that she started to get a lot of attention herself because of her connection to Bieber.
“Texts started coming through, crazy phone calls… it’s hard to date somebody in this industry,” admitted Hailey. “You have to have really thick skin and be very strong. You have to focus on the person and nothing else.”
E! News reported that Baldwin and Bieber had split back in March, but claimed at the time that the two “are still close friends” despite no longer dating.
“[Justin] is on tour and extremely busy now, so they have not seen each other that much,” a representative continued to the site of Baldwin and Bieber’s relationship after dating. “Bieber and Hailey love each other but have a good understanding where they both stand at the moment.”
