The 29-year-old singer took to Instagram on Sunday to share a post and caption it, “LUV U BABY.” The pic features the couple in their bathing suits while napping at the back of a boat.
The 26-year-old model took to the comment section by posting a two-hand heart emoji and re-sharing the post to her Instagram Stories.
Her gesture didn’t escape the trolls who were backlashing her online for weeks. They suggested that she “stole” her husband’s phone to post the pic.
One follower commented, “LOL did hailey post this for you” while another wrote, “We know she probably made you post this 😂.”
Meanwhile, Hailey’s supporters also came to her rescue. One of them wrote, “I love Sel [but] leave Justin and Hailey ALONE. That’s not what our Queen teaches us! I believe she definitely happy without all that drama 🙌.”
Another added, “Why everyone is hating ? He loves her if he didn’t he would get a divorce He is not forced to say or post anything let the people live peacefully their relationship has nothing to do with y’all.”
The Grammy winner’s post came after Hailey shared a throwback photo of her younger self which she captioned, “hugging this little girl extra tight.”
Social media users were quick to note that Gomez, 30, also shared a photo of herself as a pre-teen just days earlier on International Women’s Day.
The Rare Beauty founder shared, “Dear younger me, please don’t be afraid to ask for help.❤️”
Hailey and Selena have been pitted against each other by many fans because of their relationship with Justin. He and Selena had been dating on and off for more than a decade. However, he proposed to Hailey in 2018 a few months after he and Selena officially called it quits.
The two women were on good terms, especially after posing for a photo together at an event last year. However, the drama reignited after the model seemingly shaded the singer in a since-deleted TikTok video. She and Kylie Jenner were also accused by fans for poking fun at Selena’s eyebrows on Instagram.
Amid the drama, Hailey clarified she wasn’t being a “mean” girl while Selena was taking a break from social media. She reminded her fans to be kinder, too. That time, she surpassed Kylie as the most-followed woman on Instagram.
