Selena Gomez's Mom Posts Throwback To Show Her Support After Bieber/Hailey Engagement

By

There's been a lot of hullabaloo surrounding Justin Bieber's engagement to on-again-off-again boo Hailey Baldwin, which has led a lot of people to ask the obviously shallow question: how does Selena Gomez feel about all this?

No matter how rich, famous, or successful we get, human beings are human beings at the end of the day and get affected by the same base feelings: like seeing your ex in love with someone else, so in love that they're willing to tie the knot.

Don't believe me? Just take a look at Pete Davidson's ex's reactions after the news that the SNL star got engaged to Ariana Grande.

But isn't that what passive aggressive Instagram "revenge" posts are for? Gomez is the most followed person on the social media platform, and her account is filled with incredible photos and videos that depict her as an absolute "Slay Queen." 

Her latest post is the first she's put up after Bieber and Baldwin announced their engagement and it's pure, as the kids say, "fire." Take a look.

Granted, it's an advertisement for Puma, but if we did want to take this as a "revenge post," it doesn't get much better than looking amazing and getting paid for it, so there's that.

It's easy to get despondent whenever you think your ex is out there living their best life without you and that's when it's important to have people in your corner hyping you up while you're doing your own thing.  For Selena Gomez, she's got a pretty amazing hype-person backing her up: her mom, Mandy Teefey.

Teefey shared an adorable video of a 4-year-old Selena Gomez sassily telling her about her day at school on the phone while her mother was at work.

The video's caption has a lot of people believing that Teefey shared the video as a show of support in the wake of the Biebs-Baldwin engagement, praising Selena and her sister for being strong "born leaders."

In addition to being absolutely adorable, the video's empowering as heck—who wouldn't want a mama like Teefey in their corner?

She captioned the photo with the following message:

@selenagomez talking to me on the phone when I was at work asking about her day at school. My sassy, independent, boss lady, adorable gigantic piece of my heart, first born love. Gracie is exactly like this. Diabolical. XO. My girls are born leaders. Why do they grow up? Her sweet little eyes and massive eyelashes.

Teefey's reportedly never been a fan of Bieber and Gomez's relationship, stating that she was previously "not happy" with the two being together. It even got to the point that many speculated the Bieber-Selena romances caused a temporary rift between the "Fetish" singer and her mother—the two unfollowed each other on Instagram after Gomez briefly got back together with Bieber following her breakup with The Weeknd.

The short-lived reconciliation between the two singers began in October 2017, with the famous bike-riding photos of the couple kicking off the rumors of their re-sparked romance.

But even a cool-looking Thrasher red hoodie couldn't keep the two together, and months after breaking up, the Biebs announced his engagement to Hailey Baldwin, niece of one of the best characters from The Departed.

The Baldwin-Biebs union came as a surprise to many, especially since Hailey was spotted at the Met Gala with singer Shawn Mendes two months prior to the July 7th engagement announcement.

And although there are, naturally, tons of rumors that Gomez is salty about the Bieber-Baldwin news, and now her mother's supportive Instagram post is being construed as a "my girl don't need no man" vote of empowerment, there are many who are saying that the 13 Reasons Why producer is not bothered by the announcement at all.

"Justin’s engagement to Hailey isn’t affecting Selena in the least bit. Selena and Justin have run their course and their time together during all of their stints helped them figure out themselves."

If Gomez was bothered by her former boo's engagement, she definitely isn't showing it.

Selena was reportedly chilling on a yacht and partying with friends the weekend following July 4th. It's kind of hard to wallow in relationship blues when you're living large on a boat—just ask the Lonely Island guys and T-Pain, it's pretty darn great.

The source who spoke to Fox News said that Selena is currently focused on her music and acting career:
