Why Selena Gomez unfollowed Dua Lipa on Instagram

Selena Gomez is officially clearing up those Dua Lipa feud rumours that ignited after she unfollowed the singer on Instagram back in June.

“It was an accident!” the Only Murders in the Building star claimed in a new interview with Fast Company.

“I was just cleaning up some of my Instagram. Then somebody called me and was like, ‘What happened with Dua?!’”

Gomez, 31, seemingly addressed the feud rumours right away by sharing an Instagram photo of herself rocking a polka-dot and butterfly-print dress from Lipa’s capsule collection with Versace.

“A little Versace/Dua moment,” the singer captioned the stunning shot at the time.

Lipa, 28, was seemingly thrilled by the support. She commented under Gomez’s post at the time, writing, “angeeeeeeeel!!!!” with several heart-eye emojis.

Gomez has since re-followed the Levitating hitmaker, but has not added back other celebs she previously unfollowed, including Zayn Malik, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid.

Despite her decision to unfollow the former One Direction member and the supermodel sisters, an insider claimed that nothing sour occurred between the foursome.

“There are absolutely no hard feelings with anyone she unfollowed,” a source close to the Rare Beauty founder told People in June.

Gomez’s decision to unfollow Malik, 30, came months after the pair were rumoured to be dating. However, she declared on TikTok that she was indeed single just before pressing the unfollow button.

It’s unclear why Gomez unfollowed 28-year-old Gigi – whom shares 3-year-old daughter Khai with Malik – but perhaps the familial relations had something to do with her social media activity.

The two first connected via their mutual bestie, Taylor Swift.

As for Bella, 26, Gomez publicly declared the model as her “girl crush” in a cute TikTok video shared in February, saying, “I wish I was as pretty as Bella Hadid.”

Bella and the Single Soon hitmaker unfollowed each other years ago after they both dated The Weeknd.

In November 2019, the former Disney star complimented the model under one of her Instagram photos, which she then deleted. Bella has never publicly addressed Gomez’s praise.
