The world is healing. One of this year’s biggest plot twists happened Saturday night as Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber were photographed together at the star-studded 2nd Annual Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles.
It’s safe to say that the apparent feud between the two is all water under the bridge now. Not only did they smile for the cameras, but they also shared a sweet hug and spent time together during the event.

In the photo, captured by Tyrell Hampton, Selena and Hailey could be seen leaning close to each other, with the singer resting her hand on the model’s leg.
This rare moment came on the heels of Hailey’s interview on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast, wherein she addressed claims that she “stole” Justin Bieber from Selena.
Selena Gomez in Armani Tuxedo Suit
Selena Gomez looked elegant in a classic black Armani crepe tuxedo pure silk suit, which retails for $5,300. The men’s style single-breasted blazer features a slim fit silhouette, a single button, and large lapels, while the relaxed, flared-cut pants have stitched pockets.
Under Kate Young’s expert styling, Selena layered a black Wolford “Jamaika” sleeveless bodysuit underneath her jacket for a streamlined look. It’s available for $157 at Farfetch.

Hailey Bieber in Saint Laurent Dress
The custom-made daring number features a cleavage-baring twisted, sweetheart bodice and a large, ab-baring diamond cutout, creating an illusion of a two-piece look.
It also comes with ruching on the maxi skirt, further highlighting the relatively short model’s figure.

Showcasing her glowing sun-kissed skin, makeup artist Mary Phillips applied warm-toned smokey eyeshadow, pink blush, and nude pink lipstick to Mrs. Bieber’s face.

Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber’s Rumored Feud
The perceived bad blood between the two has been going around for years since Hailey got into a relationship with Justin Bieber.
Fans have pitted them against each other, accusing Hailey of stealing Bieber from Gomez.

Selena was in an on-and-off relationship with Justin for eight years, from 2010 to 2018. Just three months following their final breakup, Justin rekindled his romance with Hailey.
The following month, he proposed to the model, and the pair tied the knot at a New York courthouse in September of the same year.
Hailey Bieber Insists She Did Not Steal Justin from Selena
During her Call Her Daddy interview, Hailey insisted that she began dating Bieber long after he “closed a chapter” with Selena.
“It’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship. I would just never do that. I was raised better than that. I’m not interested in doing that and I never was.”
“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,” she continued.

Hailey added: “A lot of hate and perpetuation comes from like, ‘Oh you stole him,’ and I guess maybe that just comes from the fact that they wished that he had ended up with someone else. And that’s fine, you can wish that all you want, but that’s just not the case.”
She also mentioned that she respects Selena “a lot,” adding, “there’s no drama, personally.”
