Pop singer Justin Bieber has threatened to shut down his Instagram account after photos he posted online were slammed by fans and an ex-girlfriend.

Bieber uploaded several photos with Sofia Richie - Nicole Richie's sister, Lionel Richie's daughter and just 17 years old.

She's rumoured to be dating the Biebz, but these photos are causing ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez to kick up a storm.

Gomez's fans fiercely defended her, but Bieber thought the accusations were unjustified and threatened to make his Instagram account private.

That prompted Selena to pipe up, saying: "if you can't handle the hate... stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol."

To prove her point she then uploaded a photo of her fans: "My whole life. All love."

It's not the first celeb feud to fire up over social media.

Earlier this month Kanye West's wife Kim Kardashian leaked a video that took the internet by storm, with Kardashian calling it evidence Taylor Swift approved the controversial song lyrics in the rapper's song 'Famous'.

But Beliebers, don't worry - Bieber made sure to throw one back at Gomez, saying: "It's funny to see people that used me for attention."

That led to Gomez calling out Bieber for allegedly cheating on her, showing it may not be "all love" after all.
