Adele is taking aim at Justin Bieber following his very public social media battle with his fans and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
According to fans who attended Adele’s concert at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, on August 16, the “Send My Love To Your New Lover” singer addressed Justin’s recent Instagram drama during her most recent show and put the star on pretty serious blast in the process.
Adele fan account @AdeleNowUK took to Twitter to reveal how Adele allegedly slammed Justin during her Arizona concert this week, claiming that the Grammy winner branded Bieber a “teeny bopper” who doesn’t love his fans.
“I truly love my fans,” Adele reportedly told concertgoers on August 16, “not like those teeny boppers who say they love their fans but really don’t.”
Adele didn’t mention Bieber by name during her concert slam and is yet to officially confirm that she made the remarks during the Phoenix show, though fans were quick to speculate that the star was putting Justin on serious blast following his most recent drama.
“I knew Adele can be savage and shady but that Justin Bieber shade was on a whole new level omg,” Adele fan @adelesoup tweeted out, and Adele follower @AdkinsFlorrick added, “Well well well Adele shading Justin. Adele Problematic Adkins is rising.”
But while Adele’s followers were quick to praise the star for her apparent Bieber blast, others pointed out that she and Justin have actually always appeared to be cordial and even fans of each other in the past.
“Adele is a fan of Bieber and really likes him… what are you all doing?” @AdeleUnion asked after a slew of Twitter user commented on Adele’s concert remarks on the 140-character site.
Things certainly seemed to be good between the two pop superstars back in February after Us Weekly reported that Adele was spotted planting a kiss on Bieber’s cheek when she spotted the “What Do You Mean” singer in the audience at the 2016 Brit Awards in London on February 24.
The twosome’s names were originally banded together just weeks earlier after a number of fans blamed Justin for Adele’s less than stellar performance of “All I Ask.”
But as speculation swirled that Adele was put off by Bieber rehearsing for his performance as she sang, Adele cleared up the rumors during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show just two days later.
“Sound check was great. Went really well,” Adele recounted to Ellen during her most recent appearance on the popular daytime talk show according to Rolling Stone. “I was really excited, and then during the changeover, the microphones fell onto the piano strings, which is what the guitar noise was.”
“Some people thought it was [Justin] Bieber rehearsing, but it wasn’t him,” Adele continued, adding that the two are actually “on great terms.”
Adele’s alleged Bieber slam came just days after Justin left fans in disarray after threatening to delete his Instagram account before then following through on his promise just hours later.
As reported by People, Justin deleted his Instagram account after fans sent negative messages to his rumored new girlfriend Sofia Richie, causing a serious backlash from his dedicated followers and his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
Bieber’s followers quickly took to Twitter to trend the hashtag #JustinDeactivatedParty, mocking the singer for waving bye bye to the photo sharing site and accusing him of being disrespectful just hours before Adele appeared to slam Bieber during her show.
