Justine Skye has involved herself in the endless Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber fan battle. Recently, the R&B singer took to Twitter to reveal that she was receiving threatening messages from the Rare Beauty founder’s fans.

This comes after ardent Gomez fans became aware of Skye’s friendship with Bieber. Despite Skye requesting netizens to leave her out of the drama, internet users continued to throw hate towards her relentlessly.


After Selena Gomez took to her Instagram account to request followers to stop sending hate towards Hailey Bieber, Justine Skye tweeted- “what a world we live in eh?”

Many assumed that she was referring to Gomez addressing the drama. Skye was quick to delete the tweet after receiving another bout of hate online. She also revealed in a tweet that she was receiving hate messages from fans.

In one of the messages sent directly to Skye’s phone, a person sent:

“You and that little friend of yours going to stop speaking on Selena”

In another message sent to Skye, a person said that they would “get my arab cousins on u, start counting your days”

The singer went on to tell netizens that she was not being “shady” in her tweet. She also added:

“What the hell do you want I happen next. For us to kill our selves!? No one says anything because there is no winning with you all but I’m fucking tired of this."

She said:

"It doesn’t matter what ANYONE says you guys don’t want to truth to be real… But the fact of the matter is you’re all so wrong. Wrong for instigating and perpetuating this horrible narrative.”

Skye also told netizens that she is “not in Selena’s business” and neither does she “have any feelings towards her.”
