Playing Hailey Baldwin Seemingly Shades Ex Justin Bieber Over Selena Gomez Drama: 'Stop Trying to Manipulate a Situation'

Who knows how many problems Justin Bieber has these days, but apparently Hailey Baldwin is one.

The 22-year-old "Sorry" singer reportedly got into it with his other ex, Selena Gomez, over the weekend after Bieber threatened to make his Instagram private if his fans didn't stop hating on his rumored new girlfriend, 17-year-old Sofia Richie. Gomez left a shady comment, Bieber tried to clap back, accusations of cheating were thrown around...and now Baldwin has seemingly weighed in, revealing that she is #TeamSelena.

"We've all had our fair share of things we've done, both good and bad. What makes the present so powerful is when we take complete responsibility for our actions, we allow ourselves self-growth," a post on Baldwin's Instagram reads. "Misplacing the blame onto someone else isn't going to get you to the next stage in life, so try not to manipulate a situation to make yourself look better."

Baldwin and Bieber were first romantically linked when he took her on a family vacation to St. Barts in December, inspiring some PDA-packed Grams. Shortly afterward, the 19-year-old model gushed to ET about how sweet her new boyfriend is and said, "I love him."

Cut to a few short months later and she more coyly stated of her relationship with Bieber, "It's hard to date somebody in this industry. You have to have really thick skin and be very strong."

Baldwin's latest Instagram, posted smack-dab in the middle of the Bieber-Gomez #feud, is either a case of the most coincidental timing ever, or Baldwin wants to pass on some advice to her ex, with the post stating, "The truth always come [sic] to light, so it's better just to own it."

"We're all guilty of things, but show people you have enough love and respect for yourself to be honest about it and learn from it," her lengthy message concludes. "We are all humanly flawed in our own ways, but also share the same endless potential to be better than we used to be."

Post-Bieber, Baldwin was rumored to be dating Drake -- the proof is in the bling -- while the "What Do You Mean?" pop star has been linked to Kourtney Kardashian, Transformers: Age of Extinction actress Nicola Peltz and, most recently, Sofia Richie, the younger sister of Nicole Richie.

UPDATE: Baldwin took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to claim her Instagram had nothing to do with Beiber. "The only thing I 'weigh in on' is everyday life in general," she wrote. "Don't rope me into things I'm not a part of and please respect my privacy. X"

Anyway, it's Bieber's supposed romance with Richie that has caused the most drama -- and the reason he vowed to make his social media pages private. He could always just disable comments though, like Kylie Jenner did.
