Hailey Bieber is paving the rhode to peace.

Nearly four months after she and Selena Gomez both cleared the air on rumors the two were involved in a longstanding feud, the model is reflecting on the "twisted and perpetuated narratives" that have surfaced online.

"I don't think that this is about me, Hailey Bieber, and Selena Gomez," she said during the June 29 episode of the Bloomberg Originals series The Circuit With Emily Chang. "This is not about this pitting between two women and division between two women. It's about the vile, disgusting hatred that can come from completely made up and twisted and perpetuated narratives. That can be really dangerous."

Simply put, the 26-year-old—who is married to Selena's ex Justin Bieber, 29—is ready for all the discourse to stop.

"I think that it's an opportunity to really stand for bringing people together and not being ok with the kind of division that it caused because I'm not ok with the kind of division that it caused," Hailey continued. "I don't like this whole idea of team this person and team this person—I'm just not about that. I want to be able to bring people together."

In late March, Selena, 30, publicly slammed "hateful negativity" aimed at Hailey, which came after years of speculation that the two were odds over the "Yummy" singer. It was a message that was crucial to Hailey for many reasons.

"I think that was a really important moment for people to see that you can do that," she shared. "And you can bring people together and it doesn't have to be about this divisive nature."

And when host Emily Chang pointed out that pitting two women against each other serves as a "frustrating, old" narrative, Hailey made her intentions clear—as she couldn't agree more.

"Because of a guy? It's awful," she noted. "I hate it. I've hated it since the beginning. And I think that kind of goes back to a little bit of just being misunderstood when it's like time and time again I don't know why I keep having to say, and we keep having to say, that there is no issue and there is no problem."

As the Rhode Beauty founder explained, "It's so disappointing that people still behave this way over a man. It's the world we live in unfortunately."
