While you may have seen the photos in question floating around on social media and heard rumors about how momentous they are, you may not actually know their full meaning.

Hailey and Selena’s united front comes after years of the two women turning on each other over Justin Bieber.

Star fandoms have been at odds since 2018, with both Hailey and Selena reacting publicly over the years after being hated online.

To understand exactly how complicated the whole situation is, we have to go back to 2011, when Selena began her seven-year on-and-off relationship with Justin.

The two former child stars first went public with their romance in February 2011. They first broke up in November of the following year and reconnected in April 2013.

This pattern continued for many years, and during their time apart, both Selena and Justin dated other people.

Hailey first burst onto the scene in 2014, when Justin was forced to deny they were dating when he posted a selfie with her on Instagram and called her a “good friend.”

Ironically, Hailey was a huge “Jelena” fan before she and Justin started dating and regularly tweeted about him and Selena as a couple when she was a teenager.

In 2011, she wrote, “I don’t care what anyone says but Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez together are the definition of a teenage dream!”

The following year, he said that Selena was “beyond perfect” and that Jelena was the “perfect relationship” while joking that she would be “alone forever”.

Hailey was around 15 years old at the time and her Twitter account has since been deleted. Neither she nor Selena nor Justin have acknowledged the tweets.

Meanwhile, Justin and Selena’s last attempt at a relationship took place between November 2017 and March 2018, with Justin reconnecting with Hailey three months after the split.

They met at a Miami news conference for their church in June 2018, and Hailey recalled Justin saying at the end of their chance encounter, “We’re not going to be friends.”

The following month, Justin proposed, and he and Hailey were legally married in a private court ceremony in September 2018, just six months after he and Selena last broke up, and after almost eight years of their tumultuous relationship. .

Due to this rapid turnaround in Justin’s romances with Selena and Hailey, the two women have often found themselves at the center of vicious attacks and internet dramas.

In October 2019, Selena appeared to allude to her fans by taking aim at Hailey during an Instagram Live.

“I don’t defend women who bring women down,” she told her followers. “I will never, ever be for that. So please be nice to everyone. No matter what the situation is, if you are my fans, please don’t be rude to anyone.”

“Don’t go and say things that you just feel in the moment… Please, for me, I know that’s not my heart,” Selena continued.

And Hailey tried to show solidarity with her husband’s ex, liking one of Selena’s Instagram photos from 2019, as well as an Elle magazine post that had Selena as its cover star in August 2021.

A source previously told Us Weekly that Hailey hoped liking Selena’s photos would show fans that “there are no hard feelings.” The source added, “It’s her way of trying to make amends and showing her support for Selena in a low-key but public way.”

But her efforts seemed to be unsuccessful, and in April this year, Hailey apparently made reference to the fact that she still receives nasty messages from Selena fans.

While he didn’t go into detail, he did say in a TikTok video: “Leave me alone at this point. I’m taking care of my business. I do nothing, I say nothing. Leave me alone please. Enough time has passed where it’s valid to leave me alone. I beg you, really. That is my only request. Leave me alone. Be miserable somewhere else. Please.”

And the attacks went both ways, with Selena in the crosshairs of Hailey fans the following month when they accused her of shading Hailey after she posted a video of her skincare routine on social media.

Selena didn’t speak during the entire clip, let alone reference Hailey, but some claimed she was making fun of Hailey’s recent “Get Ready With Me” post, as comparisons were quickly drawn between the two videos.

Selena apologized at the time, but admitted she “had no idea” what she had done wrong. She commented on the video: “This is why I believe in taking care of your mental health. Guys, I have no idea what I did, but I’m really sorry. Zero bad intention. Deleting soon.”

And then last month, Hailey directly addressed her and Selena’s pseudo-feud on the call her daddy podcast, where he emphasized that his relationship with Justin did not overlap with Selena in any way.

“When he and I started hooking up or something like that, he was never in a relationship, at any point. It’s not in my character to mess with someone’s relationship,” he said on the podcast. “He just would never do that. I was raised better than that. I’m not interested in doing that and never have been.”

“That was a situation where I know for a fact that it was the right thing for them to close that door; they weren’t in a relationship at the time,” Hailey added later. “But of course there is a very long story. there and it is not my relationship”.

“It has nothing to do with me, so I respect him a lot, but I know he closed a chapter and I think it was the best thing that could have happened to him to move on, get engaged, get married and move on. with his life that way,” she continued.

Acknowledging the backlash to her and Justin’s relationship, Hailey admitted their wedding was “really drastic and really crazy” but insisted it was the right decision. “The only people who really know the truth of the situation and what the timeline really was and how it happened and how it happened is me and him,” she said.

And Hailey was keen to reiterate that there is “no drama” between her and Selena, saying, “I respect her, no drama personally.”

He also revealed that they had a conversation that brought him “a lot of peace” and “everything is love”. Hailey explained, “It’s also why I feel like if everyone on our side knew what happened and we’re okay and we could walk away with clarity and respect, and that’s okay.”

At the time, Hailey received backlash from Selena fans for talking about Selena so publicly, with the singer responding by encouraging her followers to be nice during a TikTok Live.

While she didn’t address Hailey by name, Selena said some things she’s seen online are “just vile and disgusting” and “not fair.”

“You should never talk to anyone in the way that I have seen,” he continued, before reiterating the importance of being “nice” to other people online.

Even though both Selena and Hailey have spent the last few years being open about their desire to move on with their lives without hard feelings for the other, they have always been treated like rivals.

However, the footage from the weekend now serves as a visual representation of their united front, and many people have shared their hope that it marks the end of the drama.

“I’m sorry, but if you can’t tell Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber that you really don’t have a problem with each other and that you as fans are the problem, then I don’t know what to tell you. Please end the drama,” one person tweeted.

Another echoed: “It’s kind of iconic that Hailey and Selena attended the same event and were able to take a picture together after your delusional theories about hating each other… time to drop it all and move on.”
