Almost four years into her rekindled romance-turned-marriage to Justin Bieber, Hailey Bieber is imploring social media critics to stop attacking her.
In a candid TikTok video, Hailey said, “Leave me alone at this point. I’m minding my business. I don’t do anything. I don’t say anything. Leave me alone, please. Enough time has gone by where it’s valid to leave me alone. I beg of you, truly. That’s my only request. Leave me alone. Be miserable somewhere else, please.” Hailey is seemingly referencing commenters who regularly compare her to Justin’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, whom he last dated in spring 2018 after a tumultuous on-off 10-year relationship. He began dating Hailey in June 2018 before they got married in September 2018.
Hailey captioned her post, “this is for you guys in my comments every single time I post.”

Hailey spoke to ELLE last year about the harassment she received when she first married Justin and how it affected her. “In the beginning of our marriage, I just wanted to hide,” she said. “I was like, ‘I don’t want people so in my business. I feel like everybody’s up my ass.’ I was like, ‘Can there be no anonymity? Can I have any of it back?’” Hailey decided to turn off public comments on her Instagram so only people she follows can comment on her posts. “I remember someone telling me that [turning off the public comments] really lowers your engagement,” she said. “And I was like, ‘I could give a fuck about engagement! People are terrorizing me. Engagement, enschagement. I don’t care!’”
Years ago, Gomez herself asked her fans to stop harassing Hailey indirectly. It was October 2019, and Hailey sparked a scandal among Selenators when she posted an Instagram Story of herself listening to Summer Walker’s “I’ll Kill You” minutes after Gomez released “Lose You to Love Me,” one of her big Justin Bieber breakup songs.
Gomez made her point without naming Hailey explicitly. “I am grateful for the response that the song is getting. I’m so grateful,” she started. “However, I do not stand for women tearing women down. And I will never, ever be by that. So please be kind to everyone. It doesn’t matter what the situation is. If you’re my fans, don’t be rude to anybody, please. Don’t go off and say things that you just feel in the moment. And just please, from me, know that that’s not my heart. My heart is only to release things that I feel that are me and that I’m proud of. And that’s all that I’ll say, yeah.”
She added later, “Again, please be kind. Please, please, please be kind. I don’t like seeing people being disrespectful or rude to other people, so please don’t do that.”
“Selena, Justin and Hailey are all tired of the Selena vs. Hailey narrative at this point,” the source said. “It’s exhausting for everyone, and they just want people to move on so they can move on too and not focus on any further negativity or past situations.”
