The world has been watching Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's relationship since it began. It's part of being an international pop star, right? So of course, plenty of rumors about the state of their relationship managed to make the rounds, too.
Now, Justin Bieber himself is taking issue with one commentator's specific insinuation about his marriage to Hailey Bieber, nee Baldwin. Apparently, this commentator had been throwing out 'accusations' to make Bieber's marriage seem more petty than romantic. However, Bieber wasn't letting that one stand. Because while his relationship and marriage was all very whirlwind, Bieber wants to make it very clear that the feelings are real.
So read up on the whole thing: the comments that started this, and Bieber's swift response!
Justin and Hailey Bieber got married fairly recently.
The heart wants what the heart wants.
And before long, they tied the knot.
However, some fans disagree.Despite Justin and Hailey's obvious affection, some fans are unwilling to give up on the history between Bieber and a former girlfriend of his, Selena Gomez.
So, rewind a few years.Gomez and Bieber had an on-again, off-again relationship beginning all the way back in December 2010.
The first time they broke up was 2012.

There were multiple reunions and breakups after that.

They were on-again for a final time in 2017.

So that's that, right?
via: Getty ImagesWell, yes. But some fans are still pretty fixated on Bieber and Gomez as a dream pair, and unfortunately, they're not shy about letting his wife know.
But Justin and Hailey also dated and broke up before tying the knot.
via: GettyRewind again, this time to 2015. In-between his relationship(s) with Gomez, Bieber dated Baldwin briefly from December 2015 to January 2016.
So all in all, they didn't date for that long.But apparently, they made a lasting impression on each other because when the pair reconciled in May 2018 they were quite lovestruck!
And Justin was posting about the marriage by November 2018.
But let's get to the 'controversy.'Because Hailey and Justin had an interview with Vogue a couple of weeks ago and had a few things to say about their relationship and the way Justin's fans engage with them.
Hailey and Justin say they're all in.
Yet Hailey has to deal with Justin's fans, and that can get frustrating.
Justin's fans get deeply concerned over his personal life.
And coming from a sea of strangers, this can be disconcerting for Hailey.
Because the only people who really know what their relationship is like are Justin and Hailey.
She gets a lot of discouraging comments on social media from such fans.
Seems like the best way to avoid vitriol, right?But Hailey still feels the scorn. "You still care to a certain extent," she added. "You really have to train your brain to be like, 'OK, why do I even care?' I don't know these people, they don't know me, they're not a part of my life or relationship."
And then, this happened:
Apparently, the commenter's whole account was named after their dislike of Justin and Hailey's relationship.
via: InstagramAnd for this particular comment (and fan), Justin had a few things to say about their assumptions concerning his marriage.
So he followed up with a comment of his own.
He quickly set the record straight about himself and Selena, too.
And he left more opinionated fans with this bottom line:
He seems pretty adamant about that.
“Hailey is my bride, period," Justin concluded. "And if you don’t like that, or support that, that means you don’t support me and if you don’t support me, you’re not a fan nor a good person."
He also reminded potential critics of the golden rules we all learned as kids.
"If you were raised right, your parents would have said: ‘If you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything," Bieber pointedly wrote.
