Singer Justin Bieber has ended his friendship with Kanye West. The singer is reportedly so pissed about West’s recent attacks on his wife, Hailey Bieber, that he’s cutting all ties with the rapper. West had made several posts attacking Hailey due to her public support of editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, whom West is feuding with.
In separate posts, West accused Hailey of getting a nose job, posted screenshots hinting at a relationship between her and Drake, and warned Justin to get his girl “before I get mad.” The “Good Morning” rapper and Justin have been close friends for years, so it’s difficult for fans to see their friendship crumble.

Justin Bieber Cut Ties With Kanye West Over Attack On Wife Hailey
According to TMZ, Justin has ended his friendship with West after his recent social media attack on Hailey. Sources told TMZ that the “Ghost” singer and Hailey both think that West went “too far” with his response and subsequent attack. They’re also reportedly “extremely hurt” by the rapper’s comments.
The sources explained that Justin, in particular, is hurt because he and West have shared a close friendship for years, and he believed that friendship accorded some respect to Hailey as his wife. West and Justin were so close that the singer was one of the people who visited West at his Wyoming ranch when the rapper went into isolation there.
Kanye West Criticized Hailey Bieber For Supporting Gabriella Karefa-Johnson
The attack in question happened earlier this week when West responded to Hailey’s public support of Karefa-Johnson, who had criticized the “Praise God” rapper over his controversial “White Lives Matter” shirt designs. The supermodel had made a post on her Instagram stories dedicated to the editor on her Instagram, adding a message of support to the post.
It read, “My respect for you runs deep, my friend!” and that “to know you is to adore you and to work with you is an honor. the most kind. the most talented. the most fun. the most chic.” Hailey did not mention West in this post or any other post, but he still got upset over her post, which triggered the subsequent attacks.
In a now-deleted post, West posted a screenshot of a news article focused on Hailey and Gigi Hadid’s comments supporting Karefa-Johnson. He captioned it, “Wait Am I canceled again??? Justin please let me know.” After this, the “Flashing Lights” rapper made more posts targeting Hailey and Justin separately.
Kanye West Attacked Hailey Bieber In Multiple Posts
In another post, West accused Hailey of getting plastic surgery on her nose, fueling a rumor that has existed for a long time but has never been confirmed. He wrote, “They want corny ass Gigi Hadid and nose job Hailey Baldloose to rally behind an obvious Corey Gamble level nonfashion industry plant.”
He was attacking Hadid because of her comments of criticism and support for Karefa-Johnson in his previous post. West’s next post was a screenshot of a 2016 article about dating rumors between Hailey and singer Drake. He captioned it with a message to Justin, which read, “Get your girl before I get mad. You spose [sic] to be my friend right.”
TMZ’s sources also stated that Hailey and Justin are particularly upset because she never mentioned West by name in her post for Karefa-Johnson. To them, there is no justification for his attack. The couple also denied the rumor of Hailey getting a nose job, as she’s done in the past.
Kanye West And Justin Bieber Were Longtime Friends
West and Justin have been friends for years and regularly show up for each other. The “Love Yourself” singer has made birthday posts for West and performed at West’s Sunday Church services multiple times. In 2021, the former friends were seen with their arms around each other in a controversial church service that included Marilyn Manson.
When West had his breakdown after splitting with ex Kim Kardashian in early 2021, Justin and Hailey were one of the few people who visited him, a clear sign of support. At the time, Kanye posted a photo of him, Justin, and Damon Dash in a hanger-like environment. He captioned it, “DD & JB discussing the new spray foam wall prototypes on the YZY campus.”
