The move came moments after the pop star had switched his account to private, before changing his mind and making his page public again moments later – and then deleting it entirely.
Setting the account private would have meant that his posts were still available for his followers, but he would have had to approve each individual follow request.

That prompted a war of words between the pop stars, with both accusing each other of cheating and Justin hinting Selena had hooked up with former One Direction star Zayn Malik.

Things quickly ignited as Justin hit back: ‘It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still trying to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I’m not one for anyone receiving hate.’
