Justin Bieber announced in an Instagram post on Monday that he is taking a break from making music because he’s “focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart.”
About seven hours later, he clapped back extremely hard at a fan/hater (it’s difficult to tell these days) who attacked his wife and marriage—while admitting he still loved longtime ex-girlfriend, pop star Selena Gomez.

So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour. I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable.... the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. ???? but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it’s a text where u just don’t care).
Account @JaileyIsAJoke commented on a photo of Hailey Baldwin that Bieber posted last night, writing, “You are NOT in love with Hailey! You only married her to get back at SG, plus Hailey sleeps with men like @ShawnMendes for fame and she’s racist @wflig.”
The attack was both unnecessary and problematic for a number of reasons, and Bieber said as much in a paragraph-long response that he shared to his Instagram Stories with the message: “Stop sending Hailey and I these messages if you love me screenshot this and repost everywhere.”
Biebers response reads, in full:
“ur immature the fact that you have an account dedicated to dissing my wife and I is absolutely absurd why would I dedicate my whole life to someone in marriage to get back and my ex, anyone who believes this is mean spirited or 10 years old or younger because a logical person doesn‘t talk or think this way u should be ashamed of yourself really.”
“I absolutely loved and love Selena she will always hold a place in my heart, but I am head over heals in love with my wife and she is absolutely the BEST THING that has ever happened to me period. The fact that you want to spend your day dedicating yourself to hate says a lot about you, and if this was some sick ploy to get my attention U to get are wrong on so many levels I’ve seen multiple people say things like this and will never respond again to a message like this because I don’t like to even give it my energy but this is a reply to all the immature sick people who send Hailey hurtful messages like ‘he always goes back to Selena’ or ‘Selena is better for him’ YOU HAVE NO IDEA MY LIFE AND WHAts good for me!!”
“Hailey is my Bride period if you don’t like that or support that that means you don’t support me and if you don’t support me your not a fan nor a good person, if you were raised right your parents would have said if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything”
The comments underneath every post of Hailey Baldwin posted to Bieber’s social media range from adoration to vicious ridicule. It’s no surprise that the model recently told Cosmopolitan that she quit reading comments on her own Instagram because they became too mean.
“You really have to train your brain to be like, ‘Okay, why do I even care? I don’t know these people, they don’t know me, they’re not a part of my life or my relationship.’ People can just be mean, and I feel like if you don’t want it to get to you, then don’t read it and allow it to affect your soul.”
