The move left his 77.8 million followers miffed with one saying "In the moment you went private you lost many fans..." (sic). The whole row started when Justin gave fans a stern warning to stop making mean comments about new girlfriend Sofia Richie on Instagram.
Ex girlfriend Selena then called Justin out with a comment on his post, saying if he can't "handle the hate" then he should stop posting photos of his new girlfriend.
Under the comment, Selena had something to say and wrote: "If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol - it should be special between you two only. They love you (sic)."But Justin was hardly enamoured by her response and slammed the 24-year-old star, claiming she used him. And yes I love my beliebers (sic)."Then the pair's argument turned to claims about cheating, where Selena accused the singer of being unfaithful. Oh and I forgot about you and Zayn (sic)," appearing to reference former One Direction star Zayn Malik. In case you missed it overnight, Justin and Selena's Instagram war stepped up a notch when Selena called him out for cheating, and Justin linked Selena to a certain Zayn Malik. When Justin wrote "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. All love," shots were fired by Selena who went on to accuse him of cheating on her "multiple times".
He wrote: "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Justin then decided to follow through with his original threat of turning his Instagram private, before making it public again and then finally deleting it moments later.
He has worked with the icons of pop, counting Katy Perry and Madonna as his muses, and now he is adding a lesser known singer of his style ranks.
They loved you and supported you before any one ever did" (sic). He continued: "I'm not one for anyone receiving hate.
But it didn't stop there, as Justin hit back with an indirect comment suggesting Selena used him for attention."It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and eachother.
Of course, for those keeping track at home, Cannes is where Kourtney was just spotted jet skiing her life away with super smoking babe, Younes.
AND for extra dramatic value, Kourtney was also once linked to Justin, who was dating Chantel, whose butt Scott Disick is now touching. She spends most of her time hanging out on the street waiting for ice cream and taco trucks ... She spends most of her time hanging out on the street waiting for ice cream and taco trucks ...
