While the Hollywood pair maintains that they are just friends, romance rumors only grew this weekend when the "Baby" singer posted six pictures in a row with the model.
Beliebers immediately started demanding answers on social media and provided their own theories into the duo's relationship. The comments, however, became too much leaving Justin hopeful that his followers will back off just a bit.
"I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand," he wrote on Instagram. "If you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like."
Several hours later, fans posted a comment that appears to be from Justin's ex Selena Gomez. As it turns out, the "Come and Get It" singer may have a thought on the Bieb's latest post too.
