War brewing? On Sunday, June 25, sleuths learned that Selena Gomez had secretly unfollowed a number of famous people, including former boyfriend Zayn Malik, his ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid, her sister Bella Hadid, Zendaya, and artist Dua Lipa. Her Instagram fans yearned to know why she would quit caring about what her alleged friends were doing.
It turns out that there is no animosity. A source told People on Monday, June 26, “There are absolutely no hard feelings with anyone she unfollowed,” though they did not go into detail about why she decided to reduce the number of A-list celebrities she followed. The article mentioned that “Levitating” star Dua is still being followed on the Instagram page of Selena’s Rare Beauty company.
Selena, 30, and Zayn, 30, were said to have been out on what appeared to be a romantic date in New York City on March 23, 2023, according to a popular TikTok video.
Unverified text from the eyewitness source to her friend read, “Tell me how Selena Gomez and Zayn just walked into [restaurant] hand in hand making out and I seated them.”
In a June 8 TikTok video, the “Look at Her Now” singer made it apparent she wasn’t seeing anyone by sitting on the sidelines of a men’s soccer match at night. “I’m single!” Selena yelled to the men in the crowd, adding, “I’m just a little high maintenance, but I’ll love you soooo much.” She wrote “The struggle man lol” as the video’s caption.
Selena and social media have a tumultuous history. She informed her followers on TikTok Live in February that she would be taking a break from social media because the situation was a little absurd. I’m too old for this; I’m thirty. But I love you guys so much and I’ll see you guys as soon as possible, I said, adding, “I’m just gonna take a break from everything.” She assured supporters that she was “very happy” and “so blessed” in order to allay their concerns about her after she was subjected to body shaming.
Selena described how her assistant had assumed control of managing her social media accounts in an interview with Vanity Fair the same month.
“There would be a ton of really beautiful remarks, but she said, “My mind immediately jumps to the mean one.” I don’t care if people think I’m stupid or unattractive. But these people are quite specific. They create incredibly precise and scathing pieces. I would be sobbing nonstop. I was anxious all of the time. I was unable to continue. Regarding the effect on her mental health, the Only Murders in the Building actor said, “It was a waste of my time.”
“TikTok is the only app I have on my phone since I think it’s a little less harsh. Social media has several great benefits, she said, including the opportunity to interact with people and learn about their lives. “But generally [for me now] that gets filtered through. I came up with a plan. I send my assistant all of my actions, and she posts them. My team will compile a few comments that are encouraging in terms of feedback”.
