Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Justin Bieber are making headlines as the three are tangled up in a classic ‘girls versus boy’ feud. Bieber, as revealed, had been cheating on Gomez when they broke up a year ago. The two powerhouse women are also BFFs who have always supported each other and therefore, this time is not a missed opportunity.
With Gomez’s latest song release ‘Lose You To Love Me’ that dropped on October 23, the drama is sizzling again!
The song is a farewell to her ‘ex-lover’, undoubtedly hinting at Bieber, with the lyrics:
“You promised the world and I fell for it, I put you first and you adored it,
Set fires to my forest, And you let it burn
I gave my all and they all know it
Then you tore me down and now it’s showing”
Soon after the track release, Swift gave out her love and support for Gomez on Instagram.

“This song is a perfect expression of healing & my absolute favorite song she’s put out yet. A triumph,” she wrote. “‘I love you so much.”
Recently, Taylor Swift has also been giving hints to confirm that Bieber was indeed cheating on Gomez, making the situation rather messy for now-married Justin Bieber. Clearly, the war isn’t over yet.
Before we dive into the drama, let us update you on the Swift and Bieber story!
Taylor Swift Versus Justin Bieber
This year, Taylor Swift had called out Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, for allegedly bullying her. She also claimed that he was the one behind the whole Kim & Kanye feud that dominated headlines in 2016. Allegedly, Kimye, with the help of Braun, secretly recorded a private phone call with Swift only to bully her and call her a ‘snake’ later.
Justin Bieber openly sided with Kimye back then, ditching Team Taylor. Bieber then posted a screenshot of Braun with Kimye on FaceTime with him. He captioned it, saying, “Taylor Swift what up.”
Soon after which Swift wrote an ‘Open Letter to Braun’ exposing the entire incident and her side of the story.
Bieber tried to ail the heated situation by writing an open letter to Swift where he did apologize, but kept defending Braun and still accused her of ‘defacing’ his manager.

Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.. I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “taylor swift what up” he didnt have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.. Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything. I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you. I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..
Just three months later, Bieber also recreated Swift’s post-Lasik surgery video where she freaks out over a banana. This video also came out as very offensive to Swift’s fanbase.

Taylor Swift continues to support Selena Gomez
Taylor Swift has, since then, been liking posts by fans or accounts calling out Bieber & Braun. In fact, one of these liked posts also includes a Tumblr post that confirms Bieber cheated on Gomez.
The post on Tumblr says, ‘we haven’t gotten to communicate our differences’ you cheated on her best friend and then publicly sided with the man who made revenge porn against her was she supposed to invite you over for tea??? Fuck outta here.”
Taylor liked this post meaning she is not backing out yet, and clearly, there is some unresolved business here. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez broke up last year in March. Then, Bieber got married to Hailey Baldwin in September 2018.
Now, in her latest release Gomez also makes a hint at Bieber moving on so quickly:
“In two months, you replaced us
Like it was easy
Made me think I deserved it
In the thick of healing, yeah”
The song is confirmed to be about Bieber as he started dating Baldwin two months after the split. Selena herself confirmed to E!News saying,
“I wrote this song over a year ago. It’s obviously a very emotional song for me.”
Justin Bieber’s stance now
Bieber has insisted that him & Swift are cool with each other, and always have been. This statement was recorded in the paparazzi video posted on Youtube.
After the media pressed him to talk more about his relationship with Swift, the singer stated,
“I’m done with all that other stuff. Other people’s drama is not my drama.”
