Selena Gomez doesn’t see what all the fuss is about. 

The 30-year-old singer/actress caused a bit of a stir last month when she snapped a few photos with Hailey Bieber. The reunion went down during the second annual Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles, just weeks after Hailey denied claims she had “stole” her now-husband, Justin Bieber, from Selena.

The Rare artist briefly addressed the photos—taken by Tyrell Hampton—during a recent interview with Vulture, insisting the moment didn’t warrant a strong reaction.

“Yeah, it’s not a big deal,” she said. “It’s not even a thing.”

Some have speculated there was bad blood between the young stars, as they’ve both been romantically involved with Justin. Selena reportedly started seeing the pop star in 2010, and had an on-again, off-again relationship until 2018. Shortly after Selena and Justin called it quits, he and Hailey announced their engagement, sparking rumors that the Justice artist had cheated on Selena with his new fiancée.

“It’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship,” Hailey said during an interview on Call Her Daddy. “I would just never do that. I was raised better than that,” the 25-year-old model said. “Like, I can say, period, point-blank, I was never with him when he was in a relationship with anybody. That’s the end of it, and I had been involved with him since I was 18.”

Hailey went on to say that she and Selena were on good terms and had talked since her and Justin’s 2018 wedding.

“So, that’s why I’m like, it’s all respect, it’s all love,” Hailey said. “That’s also why I feel like if everybody on our side knows what happened and we’re good and we could walk away from it with clarity and respect, then that’s fine. Which had brought me a lot of peace and I’m like, ‘Hey, we know what happened.’”
