Fans are not happy with Selena Gomez appearing to mention ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber while confirming her new relationship with Benny Blanco.
Selena Gomez' love life has always a source of major drama online.
Who else remembers the huge fiasco between the singer and Hailey Bieber this year?
But it seems that Gomez is at the mercy of the internet after seemingly confirming a new relationship.
Gomez shared an image on herself cuddling up with her supposed new boo on her Instagram Stories.
She also seemingly confirmed the rumours that she is dating Blanco by liking an Instagram post from PopFactions about her supposedly dating the producer - even replying 'facts' underneath it.
And the Wizards of Waverley Place star was seemingly buzzing about her relationship in the comments.
Gomez claims in the comments that the pair have been together for six months.
She also commented on the post about the pair that 'he is my absolute everything in my heart'.
However, some fans are not particularly thrilled.
Many have criticised Blanco for comments he has made in the past - which some have interpreted to be about Selena.
In 2020, Blanco, who has previously worked with the 'Baby' singer, appeared to praise Bieber, saying: "Justin's not one of those cookie-cutter pop artists.
"Like you know, they're like, 'This is my new single and here's my makeup line.'
"And he's like, Justin's like, 'Yo. I have a pimple and I have anxiety today.'
"He's always been upfront about that stuff."
It has left people wondering why Selena is dating someone who appeared to have made such mean remarks about her in the past.
Some have commented: "No, not Benny!" and one told Gomez that 'fighting your fans over your man is embarrassing'.
And Gomez was seemingly quick to defend him - calling Blanco 'the best thing that has ever happened to her' and that he's 'better than anyone I've been with'.
She also wrote that she 'knows what's best for me' and will 'fight till I get what I deserve', adding that she is 'not going to be with a f*** boy ever again' - which some believe is a reference to Bieber.
One fan wrote on X: "Even when she’s in a relationship she still mentions that old azz relationship, she needs help cuz that man is married for SIX YEARS."
Another questioned: "Is she ever happy?"
While a third claimed that she was 'in her 30s crying over a teenage relationship still...'
Tyla has contacted Selena Gomez's and Benny Blanco's reps for comment.
