Selena Gomez recently left an unexpected comment on a Nov. 29 TikTok about her weight while she was dating Justin Bieber.
The TikTok reads, “The reason why Selena is always skinny when she dates Justin” — referring to her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber — and features a series of throwback photos of the former Disney star. The clip then cuts to an alleged past comment from Selena replying to a fan about her and Justin’s split, which read, “He’s [sic] rather models. I’m just too normal.”
Gomez took everyone by surprise when she commented on the fan’s TikTok with a sad-faced emoji.
While some fans interpreted the 30-year-old chiming in as agreeing with the TikTok’s claim, many others took it as her being disappointed that her weight was being judged online.
Back in April, the “Look at Her Now” singer, who has been open about how her Lupus medication affects her weight, clapped back at body-shamers.
“So I be trying to stay skinny,” she said in the viral TikTok video. “But I went to Jack in the Box and I got four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings, and a spicy chicken sandwich.”
She continued, “Honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people b—h about it anyway. ‘You’re too small,’ ‘you’re too big,’ ‘that doesn’t fit.’ ‘Meh meh meh meh.’ B**ch, I am perfect the way I am. Moral of the story? Bye.”
The “Rare” singer and Bieber dated on and off for most of the 2010s, beginning in 2011 and ending their romance for good in 2018. Just a couple months after that final breakup, Bieber got engaged to Hailey Bieber. By the end of September that year, he and the model were married.
Showing that there is no bad blood, Selena and Hailey were recently photographed embracing each other at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Gala in October. And in the Wizards of Waverly Place star’s November documentary My Mind & Me, she said that her split from the “Peaches” singer was “the best thing that ever happened to me.”
