14 Times Celebs Shaded Their Ex’s New Relationship And Stirred Up A Whole Lotta Drama

When you see your ex with someone new, it can be tempting to say something snarky. Giving in can lead to a whoooole lot of drama. At best, you’ll ensure people know your side of the story, but at worst, you’ll come off as petty and embarassing.

Here are 14 weird, shady, or cringey responses celebs had to their ex’s new relationship.

1. THE SITUATION: Dua Lipa and Anwar Hadid dated for two years before breaking up in 2021. At the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, she made her red carpet debut with her new boyfriend, director Romain Gavras.

THE SHADE: When Bad Bunny was featured on Eladio Carrión’s song “Coco Chanel,” he seemed to reference Booker with a lyric that, in English, translates to, “The sun in Puerto Rico is hotter than in Phoenix / She knows it.” In a since-deleted Instagram comment, Booker wrote, “He worried about another MAN again.” In context of similar comments on the post he interacted with, he appeared to be mocking Bad Bunny for previously kissing a male backup dancer on stage.

THE SHADE: After an outpouring of hateful comments from Bieber’s fans caused Richie to turn off her Instagram comments, he posted a picture with her and captioned it, “If you guys are really fans, you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.” In response, Gomez commented, “If you can’t handle the hate, then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol — it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you. They were there for you before anyone.”

THE SHADE: After pictures of Swift and Hiddleston were released, Harris seemingly shaded her on Snapchat, sharing a selfie with several other women and captioning it, “I write songs.” Then, after the news about her writing his song broke, he tweeted, “I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do…I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy [Perry], etc., but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it.”

This is not me, and it’s hard enough knowing this has happened without seeing it. Enough now.”

THE SHADE: Several months later, Moretz told the Times, “Breakups are hard across the board. But when every verified account on Twitter posts something about me, I get tagged. And every major publication is verified. So anytime they post something about a certain relationship, it pops up on my phone, which is how I find out about 90% of things. … I’m not a big fan of PDAs in general. I personally don’t want to see people posted all over my phone making out.”

In response, Kardashian shared a Bible verse on her Instagram story and added, “So much criticism and hate and negativity lately. Let’s do better if not for the world, for yourself, for your children, for your friends and family. I promise the negativity and hate will not make you feel happier. I know the positive far outweighs the negative but it’s still hard not to be aware of it and it feels like every little action is criticized. Imagine the good we could do with that energy.”

14. And finally, THE SITUATION: Kourtney Kardashian Barker and Scott Disick were in an on-and-off relationship from 2006–2015. Then, she and Younes Bendjima dated on-and-off from 2016–2020. Finally, she found true love with her now-husband, Travis Barker, in 2021.
