Hailey Baldwin has a bone to pick with Justin Bieber after the 22-year-old singer reportedly unfollowed her on all of his social media accounts.
According to a new report, the singer’s new romance with 17-year-old Sofia Richie, the younger sister of reality star turned designer Nicole Richie, may be getting in the way of his on-and-off romance with the 19-year-old model.
“Justin unfollowed [Hailey Baldwin] on social media, and now all their friends are talking s— on Sofia and him and how messed up it is,” a source told People Magazine on August 15.

While Hailey Baldwin and the singer were “never officially a couple,” their close circle of friends “knew they were together” and feel that his younger girlfriend may have forced him to unfollow Baldwin due to their past relationship.
Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have been linked to one another since 2015 but stopped talking to one another for months after Baldwin stepped out with Drake after his Memorial Day party in May. Earlier that month, the on-again, off-again couple were spotted together in New York City, but weeks later, the singer surfaced with Nicola Peltz during a dinner date in Beverly Hills, and days later, Baldwin surfaced with Drake.
“Bieber wasn’t happy about it, and so they haven’t really been in touch in a bit,” the source explained. “But out of nowhere, Sofia apparently made him unfollow [Hailey Baldwin] and now she and her friends are all super upset.”
As Hailey Baldwin reportedly deals with her own personal drama with the singer, she was believed to have commented on his feud with Selena Gomez, who accused him of cheating on her multiple times over the weekend, with an elaborate post on Instagram, which she later deleted.
“We’ve all had our fair share of things we’ve done, both good and bad. What makes the present so powerful is when we take complete responsibility for our actions, we allow ourselves self-growth,” Hailey Baldwin’s message read, according to a report by Hollywood Life on August 15. “Misplacing the blame onto someone else isn’t going to get you to the next stage in life. so try not to manipulate a situation to make yourself look better.”
“The truth always comes to life, so it’s better just to own it,” the message continued. “We’re all guilty of things, but show people you have enough love and respect for yourself to be honest about it and learn from it.”

After Hailey Baldwin’s post was shared, the model was said to be “Team Selena” as she allegedly called out Bieber for being unfaithful, but in a tweet to fans later that day, she denied having anything to do with the drama taking place between others.
In the message, Hailey Baldwin told fans, “The only thing I ‘weigh in on’ is everyday life in general. Don’t rope me into things I’m not a part of and please respect my privacy.”
Following her split from the singer earlier this year, Hailey Baldwin has been focused on her career in modeling and her friends, including Kendall and Kylie Jenner. In fact, just days ago, Hailey Baldwin enjoyed a tropical vacation in Turks and Caicos in celebration of Kylie Jenner’s 19th birthday. On the island, the girls frequently shared photos and videos of one another, along with fellow model Bella Hadid, enjoying their mega mansion on the beach.
