"Why would I dedicate my whole life to someone in marriage to get back at an ex?" the singer says.
Justin Bieber has never really paid attention to negative comments about his relationships, but this particular remark struck a nerve.
On Monday evening, the singer shared a sexy snap of his wife, Hailey Baldwin (now Hailey Bieber), lounging in bed. An Instagram fan account dedicated to trolling Justin's relationship with the 22-year-old model replied to the photo, "You are NOT in love with Hailey! You only married her to get back at Selena Gomez. Plus, Hailey sleeps with men like Shawn Mendes for fame, and she's racist."
"You're immature. The fact that you have an account dedicated to dissing my wife and I is absolutely absurd," he replied. "Why would I dedicate my whole life to someone in marriage to get back at an ex?"
The Biebs went on to say that anyone who believes the claim is "mean spirited or 10 years old," adding, "A logical person doesn't talk or think this way. You should be ashamed of yourself, really."
Justin then touched on the topic of his ex-girlfriend, Selena. Fans were heartbroken when the two officially split last year after a very public, on-again, off-again relationship. And while Justin says he still has love for his first love, he maintains he's in love with his wife.
"I absolutely loved and love Selena," he wrote. "She will always hold a place in my heart, but I am head-over-heels in love with my wife, and she is absolutely the BEST THING that has ever happened to me. Period."
The rest of Justin's lengthy response urged the person running the fan account to be better. He also told anyone still hung up on his past relationship with SelGo to kick rocks.
"The fact that you want to spend your day dedicating yourself to hate says a lot about you, and if this was some sick ploy to get my attention...you are wrong on so many levels," he wrote. "I've seen multiple people say things like this and will never respond again to a message like this because I don't like to even give it my energy. But this is a reply to all immature, sick people who send Hailey hurtful messages like, 'He always goes back to Selena' or 'Selena is better for him.' YOU HAVE NO IDEA MY LIFE AND WHAT'S GOOD FOR ME."
"Hailey is my bride, period," he concluded. "If you don't like that or support that, that means you don't support me. And if you don't support me, you're not a fan or a good person. If you were raised right, your parents would have said, 'If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything.'"
Justin and Selena were last seen together at his father's Bahamian wedding in February 2018. By the fall, he was married to Hailey.
