Selena Gomez announces she’s taking an immediate break from social media

Her break comes after many speculated there's bad blood between herself and Hailey Bieber.

Shortly after becoming the most followed woman on Instagram, Selena Gomez has revealed she is taking a break from social media.

The Only Murders In The Building actor explained to fans that she would take a quick app cleanse during a live TikTok video.

You can watch what she had to say in the video below:

“I’m going to be taking a second from social media, because this is a little silly," she said.

"I’m 30 and am too old for this. But I love you so much and I’ll see you guys sooner than later.

“I’m just gonna take a break from everything.”

Her comments come after many began to speculate if there was bad blood between herself and Hailey Bieber after a video resurfaced on TikTok.

Yes, I thought this narrative was put to bed.

Selena Gomez is taking a break from social media.

The rumor mill began churning hard when a video of Bieber showed her presenting on stage alongside Method Man.

In the clip, Method Man teases ‘a one-on-one rap battle full of the meanest lyrics about a celebrity since Taylor Swift’s last album’, to which the model sticks out her tongue and rolls her eyes.

According to the video’s caption, the user wanted to expose Hailey as a ‘mean girl’. You can watch the clip below:

Gomez, a longtime friend of Swift, responded to the video in the comment section: “So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game.”

The actor quitting social media altogether has been on the cards for quite some time.

The ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ singer has previously discussed that she had completely rid herself of social media - apart from TikTok.

The 30-year-old explained that her social media accounts are mostly under the control of her assistants.

She told Vanity Fair earlier this month: “The only thing I have on my phone is TikTok because I find it to be a little less hostile. There are wonderful things about social media—connecting with fans, seeing how happy and excited they are and their stories.

“But usually that’s filtered through [for me now]. I created a system. Everything I do I send to my assistant who posts them.

"As far as comments, my team will put together a few things that are encouraging.”

Since her announcement, her TikTok account has now been deactivated and can no longer be found.

So, for now, if you want to contact Gomez, just fax her or perhaps send a message in a bottle.
