Singer Selena Gomez hit a big milestone on Instagram on Saturday. She is now followed by 400 million followers on the image, video and audio-sharing website. She found herself embroiled in a recent eyebrow drama with Hailey Bieber, the wife of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. The feud began when Selena posted a TikTok video admitting that she accidentally over-laminated her eyebrows. In response, Kylie Jenner posted a photo of herself on Instagram with the caption “this was an accident???” over her brows and shared a picture of Hailey Bieber’s perfectly laminated brows. This led to speculation that Jenner was taking Hailey’s side in the feud. (Also read: Selena Gomez goes fishing as she spends quality time with family amid Kylie Jenner and Hailey Bieber drama.
