After a rough few days on Instagram, Justin Bieber appears to have abandoned the social media platform entirely. As of early Tuesday morning, his account no longer exists. The page that used to hold his account now looks like this:


Justin Bieber deleted IG account

The change in account status comes after a rough few days on the social media service for the pop star. Over the weekend, he threatened to make his account private after fans left angry comments on pictures of him with rumored girlfriend Sofia Richie.

That in turn led Bieber's former girlfriend, pop star Selena Gomez, to leave comments telling him not to be mad at his fans and, as if that wasn't enough, accusing him of cheating on her when they were together.

Another (rumored) past girlfriend of Bieber's, Hailey Baldwin, also was reportedly upset about the whole situation and left a now-deleted comment throwing some shade.

Fans were surprised—and in some cases, devasted—by Bieber's decision to literally delete his account.

For her part, Selena Gomez sent out an apology on Snapchat. "What I said was selfish and pointless," she wrote. We'll have to see if this will be enough to bring the Biebs back to Instagram.
