“My respect for you runs deep my friend!,” Hailey wrote to Karefa-Johnson, 31, on her Instagram Stories on Wednesday, adding that “to know you is to adore you and to work with you is an honour. the most kind. the most talented. the most fun. the most chic.”
Hailey did not name West in her post, but he still got upset over her remarks, and rebuffed in a now-deleted post on Instagram, “Wait Am I cancelled again??? Justin [Bieber] please let me know.”
The Heartless rapper then went after Hailey’s looks in a separate post, accusing her of getting plastic surgery.
“They want corny ass Gigi Hadid and nose job Hailey Baldloose to rally behind an obvious Corey Gamble level nonfashion industry plant,” West wrote, also referencing Gigi Hadid’s disapproval of his “White Lives Matter” tees.
The Jesus Walks rapper then shared a screenshot of an article from 2016 that covered dating rumours between Hailey and Drake, and wrote alongside of it a message to Justin that read, “Get your girl before I get mad. You spose [sic] to be my friend right.”
Sources told TMZ that the Biebers — who have been married since 2018 — think West “crossed the line” because Hailey never mentioned him by name in defence of her friend. They also claim she never got a nose job.
Justin and West’s friendship goes back years with the Ghost singer performing multiple times at the rapper’s Sunday Service.
In November 2021, Justin and West were seen wrapping their arms around each other in a prayer circle that took place at one of the more controversial appearances of the spiritual gathering that included Marilyn Manson.
