Selena Gomez Posts About Feelings Before Hailey Bieber Podcast

Are you ready for the worst? Selena GomezApparently, it was hinted that you might feel wary ahead Hailey Bieber‘s “Call Her Daddy” interview hours before the podcast dropped.

The Only Murders in the HouseActress, 30, uploaded an Instagram story on Tuesday, September 27. She republished a photo from her mental health advocacy site Wondermind. The image featured a circle with various colored sections that highlighted a variety of emotions, including fear and anxiety as well as surprise and sadness.

“Sometimes it can seem seem impossible to describe exactly how you’re feeling. Enter: The Feelings Wheel ✨,” read the initial post’s caption, noting that the wheel helps people be “better able to recognize (and maybe even share) your emotions.”

When Gomez shared the post via her Story, she simply added a GIF that read, “How are you feeling?”

The cryptic upload came one day before Bieber, 25, opened up about her rocky history with the Disney Channel alum on the Wednesday, September 28, episode of “Call Her Daddy.” After years of being pitted against one another, the model clarified on Wednesday that she never “stole” her now-husband, Justin Bieber, Gomez.

“I know how we got to where we got, period,” Hailey told host Alex Cooper. “I just know how it happened, I was there and I was living it every day. There’s a lot. I can understand why people were like, ‘What is going on? This seems insane.’”

Hailey and the “Baby” crooner, 28, briefly dated from December 2015 to January 2016 before he rekindled his on-off romance with the Spring Breakers star. Us Weekly confirmed in May 2018 that Gomez and the Grammy winner had split for good — and he got engaged to Hailey two months later.

According to the Drop the Mic cohost, there was “not one time” when her relationship with Justin overlapped with his and Gomez’s. “It’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship. I would never do that,” she asserted on the podcast. “I was raised better than that. I’m not interested in doing that and never was. … I understand, again, how it looks from the outside. There’s a lot of perception there, but that was a situation where I know for a fact it was a right thing for them to close that door. They weren’t in a relationship that time. But, of course, there’s a very long history there and it’s not my relationship. It has nothing to do with me.”

The Biebers were married in September 2018 at a New York City courthouse, one year after they had tied the knot in South Carolina. Hailey has been in touch with Hailey since getting married to the Canada native. Wizards of Waverly Place alum.

“That’s why I’m like, ‘It’s all respect, it’s all love,’” Hailey explained. “That’s also why I feel like if everybody on our side knows what happened and we’re good and we could walk away from it with clarity and respect then that’s fine.”

Gomez had previously apologized publicly for posting a TikTok clip in May that some thought was a slur against Hailey. She had just posted a similar clip about her skincare routine. “Guys no idea what I did but I really am sorry,” the Rare Beauty founder wrote in a comment at the time. “Zero bad intention. Deleting soon.”

The supposed snub came shortly after Hailey begged trolls to leave her, Justin and the “Lose You to Love Me” singer alone and drop the drama.

While fans are still fascinated by the trio’s dynamic, Gomez has completely moved on from the “Peaches” artist. “It took a lot of discipline, obedience and strength to get her mental and emotional health back in a good place,” a source exclusively told Us in January 2020, adding that the actress felt “extremely relieved” to put the Justin “chapter of her life” behind her.
