- Fans think Taylor Swift implied that Justin Bieber cheated on Selena Gomez thanks to a very telling Tumblr Like.
- Taylor and Justin are currently feuding over Scooter Braun.
Hello and welcome to the messiest Tuesday ever. This weekend, celebrity manager Scooter Braun acquired Taylor Swift’s music catalog through a $300 million deal with Big Machine Records—and she promptly wandered over to Tumblr and accused him (and Kim Kardashian…and Justin Bieber…and Kanye West) of bullying her.
It’s all extremely messy, and Justin made it even messier by responding to Taylor on Instagram. His post was one part not-that-great apology and one part calling Taylor out for bullying Scooter. Ya see?

Hey Taylor. First of all i would like to apologize for posting that hurtful instagram post, at the time i thought it was funny but looking back it was distasteful and insensitive.. I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshoted of scooter and Kanye that said “taylor swift what up” he didnt have anything to do with it and it wasnt even a part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that.. Scooter has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you.! As the years have passed we haven’t crossed paths and gotten to communicate our differences, hurts or frustrations. So for you to take it to social media and get people to hate on scooter isn’t fair. What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog? seems to me like it was to get sympathy u also knew that in posting that your fans would go and bully scooter. Anyway, One thing i know is both scooter and i love you. I feel like the only way to resolve conflict is through communication. So banter back and fourth online i dont believe solves anything. I’m sure Scooter and i would love to talk to you and resolve any conflict, pain or or any feelings that need to be addressed. Neither scooter or i have anything negative to say about you we truly want the best for you. I usually don’t rebuttal things like this but when you try and deface someone i loves character thats crossing a line..
Anyway, Taylor hasn’t responded to Justin directly, but—as Elle noted—she’s been extremely active on Tumblr—Liking a ton of shady fan comments about him. Including one that claims Justin cheated on Selena Gomez.
Now, to be clear Taylor isn’t confirming these cheating rumors directly, but fans think this Like is basically an indirect confirmation. The post in question reads “‘We haven’t gotten to communicate our differences.’ You cheated on her best friend and then publicly sided with the man who made revenge porn against her, was she supposed to invite you over for tea??? F*ck outta here.”
Justin himself implied that there was infidelity during his relationship with Selena, telling i-D, “We were working out how to be in a relationship, how to be ourselves, who we were, in the middle of having people judge our relationship through the media. I think that really messed my head up to. Because then, it’s like trust and all this other stuff that starts messing with your mind. You’re on the road. And there are beautiful women on the road. And you’re just getting yourself into trouble.”
