Early Tuesday morning, Bieber decided to delete his Instagram account altogether after confronting his fans and his ex's comments. The 22-year-old pop star posted seven pics of him and Richie over the weekend, and took issue with the negative remarks he received over the images. "I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand," he captioned the last photo. "If you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like."

According to alleged screen grabs taken by fans, Gomez reacted to the post, writing: "If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol -- it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you."

In another alleged screen grab, Bieber responded: "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still trying to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I'm not one for anyone receiving hate."

After Bieber abruptly deleted his Instagram account, Gomez issued an apology on Snapchat. "What I said was selfish and pointless," the 24-year-old singer wrote.

Meanwhile, Bieber's other ex Hailey Baldwin responded to speculation that she was weighing in on the "Sorry" singer's alleged Instagram feud. On Monday night, she tweeted: "The only thing I "weigh in on" is everyday life in general. Don't rope me into things I'm not a part of and please respect my privacy."

Here's a look at what she originally posted that raised a few eyebrows:
