In news that will surprise no one chronically online, Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner have shut down rumours of a reported feud with a move appropriate for 2013: a selfie featuring that dog filter. Celebrities, they’re just like us, right?

On June 3, Bieber quashed reports that she and her long-term best friend, the supermodel and spirit mogul, were embroiled in a fresh bout of beef by sharing a photo of the pair lounging around a pool together and (most importantly) minding their own business.

In the image, the respective Rhode Beauty and 818 founders looked relaxed in their balmy bikinis, posing with their thumbs up to prove the alleged bad blood between them was nothing more than tabloid fodder.

Further bringing the point home, 26-year-old Bieber captioned the Snapchat-esque image “feuding”, with the word in quotation marks and followed by a series of orange love hearts.

While most people don’t have to take to social media to defend their friendships after a rumour proliferates the internet, Bieber is taking action against those who want to come for her. A very Hollywood way of working, and perhaps a lesson she learnt after the drama she and Kylie Jenner were engaged in with Selena Gomez.

In late May, reports began circulating that 27-year-old Jenner and Bieber were “feuding”, with “evidence” suggesting that the pair were no longer as close as they used to be. The internet’s proof came in the form of the respective model’s Instagram pages and summer vacation plans.

Both Bieber and Jenner were yachting along the French Riviera during the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix, however despite being on the other side of the Atlantic together, the best friends didn’t meet up or address that fact on social media.

Didn’t our Euro travels in our early 20s teach us nothing about the difficulty of meeting up with your friends when you’ve both got respective itineraries?

Bieber and Jenner may have been in the same country, and even the same body of water, but not seeing your best friend on the other side of the world doesn’t warrant a feud.

Bieber’s post comes after she labelled the media a “disgusting thing” back in a 2022 interview. “The media loves to take a tiny little blurb of something for clickbait. The media has always been a disgusting thing,” she revealed.

Bieber and Jenner are just too busy living their best SoCal socialite life, including jet-setting around the globe, going on balmy vacations and living their best life in every corner of the world. Who’s to blame them for not wanting to post every time they’re together?
