Hailey Bieber, a model and influencer, took to Instagram to impart a poignant message that underscores the reality that what we witness on the social media platform may not always be a true representation of reality. She reminds us that every human being is going through something that is unknown to others, as we only perceive the mere tip of the iceberg, so to speak.
In a deeply emotional Instagram Story post shared early this morning, Bieber reveals, “I have a tendency to mask my inner turmoil by making light of it with humor. However, the truth is, since the advent of 2023, I have been enduring some of the most profound and intense moments of sadness that I have ever encountered in my adult life, and as a result, my mind and emotions have been distressingly delicate, to say the very least.”
Bieber chooses not to elaborate on the specific experiences she is alluding to in her post. However, it is worth noting that this comes on the heels of Bieber losing several thousand followers on various social media platforms, as a result of rumors that she harassed Selena Gomez, the former girlfriend of her husband, Justin Bieber. (Subsequently, both Bieber and Gomez took to Instagram to repudiate the false claims and defend one another.)
The founder of Rhode is cognizant of the fact that there are countless other individuals who share her sentiments, and hopes that they can find solace in knowing that they are not alone in their struggles. Bieber expresses, “Having said that, let us endeavor to support our loved ones, friends, and family members, as well as strangers. Let us strive to be present for one another, even in trying times. For it is when we are united that we are at our strongest.”
Bieber has been occupied this month with promoting her recent Rhode launches, including her new passionfruit peptide lip treatment. Additionally, she launched her cooking show, “What’s in My Kitchen,” with her friend Kendall Jenner as one of the first guests.
