Sofia Richie Posts PDA Pics As Justin Bieber Quits Instagram: Why Their ‘Love Fest’ Won’t Last

Amid the drama of Justin Bieber quitting Instagram, his new gal pal, Sofia Richie, appears to be the one person who has the ability to laugh off the situation. Showing no signs of following in his lead, Sofia has been posting photos showing that she and Justin are closer than ever, noted ET.

Richie Responds By Crooning Boyfriend’s Song

The controversy and hostility have continued after the Biebs blasted fans for bullying Richie and then followed up by deleting his own Instagram account, after kicking off a feud not just between the singer and his Beliebers but with two ex-girlfriends, Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin, both of whom attacked Justin.

In the most unexpected response to the drama, Richie shared a series of posts on Snapchats, singing one of her boyfriend’s songs, “Let Me Love You,” while refraining from deleting the PDA photos documenting their romance. It was a stark contrast to the Biebs’ dramatic exit.

Although rumors swirled that Sofia had turned to Twitter to sound off on the feud among Justin, Selena, and Hailey, Richie brushed off the reports. Instead, Sofia seemed to focus on her blossoming romance with the pop star, which he and she documented with lots of photos showing the two in Japan.

Will Their “Love Fest” Last?

As to whether the “love-fest” between Richie and the pop star will last, an insider told People that there’s no chance of a happily-ever-after forever romance, predicting that Sofia and Bieber will break up sooner rather than later.

Why is it such an “impossible” dream that the increasingly hot hookup between the 22-year-old superstar and 17-year-old model won’t last? The source, who is close to the Biebs, explained that the singer’s career and life, rather than romantic relationships, take priority.

“Sofia and Justin are basically on a love-fest right now, but it’s virtually impossible where he’s at in his life and career for anything to last with these girls.”

How Richie And Bieber Began Their Romance

Sofia started her romantic relationship with the crooner by spending time with him both in Laguna Beach and his home in Toluca Lake, another insider revealed to People. Richie then jetted with him off to Japan, joining Justin on his “Purpose” tour.

However, Sofia has plenty of company when it comes to falling in love with the superstar singer, pointed out the source. Consequently, even the fact that the two share the same circle of friends likely won’t persuade the Biebs to settle down with Richie, predicted the second insider.

“These girls all go crazy for him, but he’s not settling down.”

Who To Call To Complain?

Twitter always can be counted on for a reaction, and after Justin’s social media drama over Sofia exploded, the hashtag #JustinDeactivatedParty started to trend.

But for those seeking someone to whom to send complaints, the singer’s manager, Scooter Braun, is coping with the fall-out from his client’s deleted Instagram account, pointed out Refinery29.

Some turned to Braun to express their apologies, while others just longed to vent about the absence of their idol’s social media. Then there were those who branched off to their own social media pages.

Beliebers have continued to rely on Braun, however, to try to communicate with the crooner, posting messages regardless of what Scooter intended to convey. Some tried to turn the tide away from the manager.

“These beliebers really need to comment on another post.. Like really,” scolded one.

But that didn’t seem to stop the pleas for a return of their hero to social media.


Many focused on confirming their belief in him regardless of his romance with Sofia, even attacking other Beliebers for being jealous of Richie.

“They are jealous! we love you so much Justin,” posted one Belieber. “We never left in 2014 and we aren’t leaving now!! Please come back.”

Others attempted to use Braun as a sort of post office.

“Please tell him that he must be always take care of his self scoot,” requested another follower.

Late night thoughts...

In what is speculated to be a response to the drama, Scooter sought to urge his followers to take what had happened and make something of it.

“Late night thoughts,” he explained.

He was blasted with a flood of hashtags in response.

“#BeliebersLoveYouJustin #BeliebersWillNeverDie #wewontleaveyoujustin #BeliebersWillNeverLeave #BelieberStayForever #WeAreHereForYouJustin,” wrote one such fan.
