UPDATED, Oct. 23 at 1:43 p.m.: Bieber claims the speculation is unwarranted. “Please stop with this nonsense,” she commented in response to Just Jared’s Instagram post regarding the possible shade. “There is no ‘response,’” she clarified. “This is complete BS.”

Selena Gomez dropped some long-awaited new music on Tuesday night, releasing a moody song and video called “Lose You to Love Me.” Fans immediately assumed the song was written about Gomez’s ex, Justin Bieber, and a cursory look at the lyrics would appear to confirm this theory. If “set fire to my purpose” doesn’t send up a mental flare, perhaps this will: “In two months, you replaced us” (Bieber reconnected with his soon-to-be-wife Hailey very soon after his and Gomez’s latest split).

Naturally, Jelena fans have been on high-alert for a “response” from the Biebers. Honestly, Hailey made it almost too easy. Not long after Gomez’s song went live, Mrs. Bieber shared a screen grab of her listening history. She was playing “I’ll Kill You” by Summer Walker feat. Jhené Aiko. And, OK, if the aggro song title wasn’t enough to send a message, take a look at the lyrics: “Tryna come between us, it won't end up good,” “F—k that my baby you all mine/ Greatest of all time /You better tell them hoes, ‘Fall in line’ / I do not play about mine.”
