Over the past week, we’ve seen lots of major red carpet moments thanks to the VMAs and the Met Gala. A lot of celebrities attended the latter, including Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin Bieber. They were walking the red carpet when the latter seemingly had a bit of an emotional moment thanks to some rowdy fans hollering “Selena” at the couple. Now, a viral TikTok is going around that appears to show the “Sorry” singer comforting his wife.
Of course, fans who have been following the Biebs over his long career should already know why fans might holler “Selena” at Hailey Bieber. The pop singer dated Selena Gomez several times between 2010 and 2018. That relationship had a lot of ups and downs, and they ultimately called it quits just a few months before Justin Bieber got into a serious relationship and then married his now-wife, whom he had also previously dated in one of his breaks from the Jelena relationship. In short, that whole situation has been complicated, but fans have not been and continue to not be particularly nice about it, if this video is any indication.
In the TikTok moment shared by user Return of Bizzle, the singer and his wife seem to be minding their own business when a “Selena” chant runs through the crowd. Hailey Bieber seems a little overwhelmed in the moment, as cut-to shots seem to show her upset and reacting to the chants. As a response, Justin Bieber tells her that he loves her, before shifting away from the Selenators, aka those who claim to be fans of Selena Gomez.
