Hailey Bieber commented for the first time on rumors that her husband Justin Bieber and his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez broke up over her. She revealed this on the Call Her Daddy podcast:
When he and I started dating, he wasn’t in a relationship. It’s not in my rules to mess with someone else’s relationship, I was raised better. I understand how it looks from the outside. But I do know that Justin and Selena had already ended their relationship at that point. Of course, there’s a very long story there.
Haley also stated that a lot of hate is still pouring out to her because of this story because people think she “stole” him:
It just puts me in a stupor. It’s all happening to this day – if I went on live TV, I’d get comments written about it.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez dated for several years, periodically breaking up and renewing their relationship. The last time they got together was in 2018, but not for long: the couple soon finally broke up. Just a month after the breakup, Justin started dating Hayley, and a couple of months later he proposed to her. Because of this, many people thought that it was Hayley who caused Bieber’s breakup with Selena Gomez. Later, Gomez also sang about it in one of her songs, which caused a new wave of heckling towards Hayley.
Selena Gomez said after the breakup that their relationship with Bieber was toxic and revealed that she struggled with depression for a long time afterwards
