Canadian singer Justin Bieber has deleted his Instagram account after his supposed fight with his former girlfriend Selena Gomez. The former Disney star and the Baby hitmaker reportedly made cheating accusations against each other on the photo-sharing website.

According to screenshots taken by fans, the rift started after Bieber threatened to make his Instagram private due to hateful comments towards his rumoured girlfriend, Sofia Richie. The original comment from Gomez apparently read: "If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol. it should be special between you two only. Don't be mad at your fans. They love you."

Bieber replied: "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love...I'm not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers."

The Come and Get It singer responded: "Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love."

This comment allegedly irritated the Sorry singer and suggested she had been unfaithful with the former One Direction star Zayn Malik. He reportedly stated: "I cheated... Oh I forgot about you and Zayn?"

Meanwhile, Gomez posted a photo collage of her fans on Instagram. She captioned the image: "My whole life. You matter most. Thank you for letting me do what I love every day."

My whole life. You matter most. Thank you for letting me do what I love every day.
