2023 has been a whirlwind for Hailey Bieber as rumours and online hate have turned their nasty heads in her direction.
And now, she is taken to the internet to share how she's experienced some of the 'saddest, hardest moments ever' this year.
And this year has been a particularly tough one for the model, as fans have took to fuelling rumours about an apparent 'feud' between her and Selena Gomez.
And this widely-publicised triangle of scandal with Gomez and Hailey's husband, Justin Bieber, has been going on for quite some time.
In an Instagram story, the former Nickelodeon star shared that Hailey had 'reached out to me and let me know that she has been receiving death threats and such hateful negativity'.
"This isn't what I stand for," she continued in her post.
"No one should have to experience hate or bullying. I've always advocated for kindness and really want this all to stop."
After facing so much hate, it’s no surprise that it’s taken its toll on Hailey's health in recent months.
On Thursday (20 April), she took to Instagram to open up about her struggles by posting a long series of stories.
She first shared a video of a dancing cat, before writing: "This is how my mental state feels after the last month and a half."
She then further explained the events leading up to this moment.
"I like to make jokes about how I feel because sometimes it's easier than admitting I'm having a hard time.
"But truthfully since 2023 started I have had some of the saddest, hardest moments I've ever had in my adult life and my mind and emotions have been fragile to say the least.."
In her stories, Hailey added that she knows 'so many other people feel the way I feel, so just know you're not alone'.
"That being said, let's keep being there for one another.” she added.
She then ended the long series of honest thoughts by writing: "Let's be there for loved ones and friends and family and strangers. Let's just be there for people..let's keep showing up for each other even when it's hard.
"We're better together."
Hailey didn't share any specific moments which brought her to this point, but she has shown gratitude to Selena for speaking in her defence.
In a short story on 24 March, Hailey thanked the singer for 'speaking out'.
She also expressed how the prior weeks had been 'hard for everyone involved' and also for the 'millions of people are seeing so much hate around this'.
Hailey added that everyone needs 'to be more thoughtful about what we post and what we say including myself'.
"In the end, I believe love will always be bigger than hate and negativity and there is always an opportunity to meet each other with more empathy and compassion." she said.
