Justin Bieber just made quite the statement with his latest Insta post!

Yesterday, the Biebs shared a tweet from Kanye West, which read, “Not smiling makes me smile.” His followers were quick to assume that the quote must be a reference to Justin’s girlfriend, Selena Gomez. The two lovebirds, who recently rekindled things after years apart, are said to be going through a rough patch. Selena’s family is evidently not happy with their union, while Justin thinks she should choose him over them. Talk about complicated!

Amid reports that Sel is sticking close to her family, it makes sense that this post may be about her. Justin has been silent on social media (aside from this post) since breakup rumours began swirling. Maybe he’s staying quiet because that’s what he needs in this tough time. Selena is also very publicly best friends with Taylor Swift, whose arch nemeses are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Justin may have chosen a Kanye quote in order to shade Selena.
