Justin Bieber has finally made good of his threat! The singer who was embroiled in an exchange of words with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez has deleted his Instagram page as at this morning, August 16, 2016. He listed unavailable when searched on Instagram.
This comes after Justin shared a photo of himself with Lionel Richie’s 17-year-old daughter, Sofia. Fans flooded the comment section with mean messages prompting the singer to threaten to make his account private if they didn’t stop.
“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand,” he wrote on Instagram. “If you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.”
Several hours later, Selena Gomez took a jab at the singer who recently revealed he doesn’t want gifts from fans writing, “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.“
Bieber clapped back by commenting, “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers.”
Beliebers sure would miss him!
The former couple dated from late 2010 to mid-2014 before going their separate ways as the ‘What Do You Mean’ singer began to embrace a new bad boy image.
