Fans Have Mixed Feelings About Taylor Swift Reportedly Kicking Justin Bieber Out of His Favorite Gym
Do we sense low-key shade?
Taylor Swift reportedly kicked Justin Bieber and others out when she recently visited a gym in Los Angeles. Although many can understand her reasoning for wanting an entire gym to herself, others think it was somewhat childish of Swift to rent out the same facility Bieber regularly goes to.
Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber haven’t been on the best terms lately
There is no question that Swift and Bieber don’t really get along.
Back in June 2019, Bieber publicly defended his longtime manager, Scooter Braun, shortly after Swift slammed him for withholding her masters.
In a lengthy Tumblr post, the “ME!” singer called out Braun for allegedly bullying and manipulating her as she expressed how unfair it was that she didn’t own the rights to her music. Swift also named Bieber, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian West in her post as others who have “bullied” her in past years.
Following her post, Bieber didn’t waste time clapping back at Swift’s claims by defending both himself and Braun.
“What were you trying to accomplish by posting that blog?” Bieber wrote on Instagram. “Seems to me like it was to get sympathy. U also knew that in posting that, your fans would go and bully Scooter.”
A few months later, Bieber came to Braun’s defense again after Swift accused Braun of not letting her perform her music at the 2019 American Music Awards.
This time, the “Yummy” crooner shared a screenshot of an article accusing Swift of lying about the whole ordeal, showing he’s definitely not the biggest fan of the singer.
Swift allegedly kicked Bieber out of his favorite gym
While the pop stars have since kept the drama between them at bay, an incident at a gym might cause more tension.
According to TMZ, things got a little awkward after the singers almost crossed paths Jan. 18 at Dogpound Gym in West Hollywood. The outlet reports that Swift had rented out the gym for a private session, which meant everyone had to leave while she worked out.
Bieber, who didn’t have an appointment, happened to be at the gym and reportedly refused to leave until he finished his workout. According to TMZ, “Justin’s security team was approached and asked to leave, but JB’s team held firm and said he was going to finish his workout before taking off.”
After “goofing around and dancing,” the Biebs packed up and left. And before people start making assumptions, it turns out he “had no idea it was Taylor who had requested the gym be cleared.”
Fans have had a lot to say about this
Shortly after TMZ reported this news, many people took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Swift cutting Bieber’s gym time short.
Many Swifties quickly came to the singer’s defense by sharing how they didn’t see anything wrong with her renting out a gym Bieber just so happened to be in.
“Taylor already had an appointment to train alone there bcoz she keeps herslf away from ppl & media since years,” one fan tweeted. “Then it happens to be the gym’s fault to have allowed people & Justin at that time. She didn’t kick anyone out. She just went when she had taken her appointment.”
“Anyone can book a gym. Literally anyone. Justin didn’t. Taylor did. It’s not her fault that the gym didn’t tell people they had to leave by a certain time,” another fan expressed.
Others didn’t have a problem slamming Swift for making people leave the gym.
“Taylor paying to have a public place cleared out isn’t okay lol. She can afford to have a private gym,” someone else wrote. “She f***ed up people’s entire routines. Meanwhile Justin was okay working out alongside them. She’s capitalist & elitist trash. Don’t know why she’s being praised.”
Some people are even putting the blame on Braun and his team, whom they believe paid TMZ to make this a bigger situation than it was.
“This story was CLEARLY payed for by [scooter emoji]. trying to make her sound like the angry woman, when in reality, she payed her price and expected to get what she payed for,” someone expressed.
No matter what anyone thinks, this situation was clearly a coincidence and probably won’t turn into something bigger — or so we hope.
