Hailey Bieber says 2023 has had some of the saddest moment of her life and begs people to be nicer

Hailey Bieber says 2023 has had some of the saddest moment of her life and begs people to be nicer

The model got candid about her mental health struggles after months of fans accusing her of mocking Selena Gomez.

Hailey Bieber reveals she’s ‘having a hard time’ with her mental health.

The model has been ridiculed online for months over an alleged feud between her and singer/actor Selena Gomez.

Despite Selena telling her fans to leave Hailey alone, Bieber shared that she had been struggling.

“I like to make jokes about how I feel because sometimes it’s easier than admitting I’m having a hard time," she wrote via an Instagram story.

"But truthfully, since 2023 started, I have had some of the saddest, hardest moments I’ve ever had in my adult life and my mind and emotions have been fragile to say the least.

"And I know woman other people feel the way I feel, so just know you’re not alone."

Hailey's candid comments come after months of online users trolling her, believing she had mocked Selena.

It began in January, when Selena was body-shamed after paparazzi snapped some bikini pictures of her vacationing in ​​Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Just days after, Hailey, Kendall Jenner, and Justine Skye posted a TikTok while lip-syncing the audio: “I’m not saying she deserves it, but God’s timing is always right!”

And you bet this poured gasoline onto the already heinous fire.

Shortly after her video was posted, many TikTok users began calling Hailey out, leading her to delete the post.

And then Kylie Jenner entered the chat.

Fans came for the duo and accused them of making fun of Selena’s eyebrows.

In a TikTok posted late February, Selena told her followers: “I accidentally laminated my brows too much.”

After Selena’s post, Kylie shared a photo of her own arches on her Instagram Stories, writing: “This was an accident ?????”

Kylie then uploaded a screenshot from a FaceTime call she had with Hailey, where the pair had both zoomed in on...yes, you guessed it, their eyebrows.

And again, Selenators went into overdrive.

So much so that Selena even begged her fans to leave the model alone.

"Hailey Bieber reached out to me and let me know that she has been receiving death threats and such hateful negativity. This isn't what I stand for. No one should have to experience hate or bullying," she wrote in an Instagram story.

She concluded: "I've always advocated for kindness and really want this all to stop."

Hailey then issued a statement thanking Selena while revealing the two had been in contact for weeks.

She added: "The last few weeks have been very hard for everyone involved and millions of people are seeing so much hate around this, which is extremely harmful.

"While social media is an incredible way to connect and build community, moments like this only create extreme division instead of bringing people together."

Despite the two's best efforts to squash the drama, we have a feeling this isn't the end.
