Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber have been considered rivals for years due to their history with Justin Bieber. Now Kylie Jenner's hat has been thrown into the proverbial ring as fans accused Kim Kardashian's little sister of trolling the 'Lose You to Love Me' singer after she overtook Kylie as the most followed woman on Instagram . Apparently, a brow mess was also in play, and although the makeup mogul refused to shade herself, something bothered Gomez as she declared herself "too old for that" before temporarily deleting his TikTok. As you can see, this is a complex situation, so let's break down this whole Eyebrowgate story.
Kylie Jenner's TikToks seem to hide Selena Gomez's eyebrows
With the feud between Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez simmering for years, Kylie Jenner (publicly, at least) joined the fight this week. On February 21, Selena Gomez posted a TikTok video (via ET) showing off her expressionless eyebrows:
Two Kylie Jenner TikToks followed a few hours later, one with a selfie of the Kardashian star with the words "Was it an accident????" written above her eyebrow, and a second that was a screenshot of a FaceTime with Hailey Bieber, in which both women had their eyebrows raised. A TikToker broke everything:
Where is Kylie Jenner's place in all of this? Hailey Bieber has long been associated with the Kardashian gang, but the Life of Kylie star's feud with Selena Gomez could revolve around another important aspect of her life: Instagram followers. This all happened the same week that Gomez overtook Jenner as the most followed woman on the social media platform. As of this writing, the Only Murders in the Building actress has 383 million followers compared to Jenner's 380.6 million.
Kylie Jenner denies girls' mean behavior, calls accusations 'Silly'
After backlash from fans who saw the timing of Kylie Jenner's posts as proof that she and Hailey Bieber were stalking Selena Gomez, the mother-of-two responded in a fan's comments on TikTok:
Kylie Jenner's place in the feud could be up for debate, but it's safe to say the water isn't under the bridge between Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber. This is especially true as it happened shortly after Ms Biebs followed the pop star in a TikTok post with Kylie's sister Kendall Jenner. In this video, fans thought the women were referring to Gomez being embarrassed by recent bikini photos.
Selena Gomez announces social media hiatus and temporarily disables TikTok After the whole Eyebrowgate situation, Selena Gomez apparently decided she needed a break from social media and took to TikTok Live on February 23 to explain her upcoming absence to her followers. A fan account shared a video of his live on Twitter, of which he said in part:
I'm very happy, I'm so blessed, I have the best friends, the best fans in the whole world, and I just couldn't be happier. And I'm good. I love the way I am. I don't care, I'm big, I'm not… I don't care. I love who I am. And yeah, I'm gonna be taking a second from social media, because this is a little silly. And I'm 30, I'm too old for this, so. But I love you guys so much. And I will see you guys sooner than later, I just... I'm just gonna just take a break from everything.
Her TikTok account was deactivated shortly after, but Elle reported that it was active again a few hours later, although Selena Gomez did not post any new content. We thought Gomez and Hailey Bieber's feud was over, but now that's not the case, especially with Kylie Jenner involved.
