Justin Bieber & Ariana Grande Has Had Enough With Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Bullsh**
It looks like the Princess of Pop Ariana Grande and rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine are having a wild back and forth via Instagram after her charity single with Justin Bieber “Stuck with U” debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 ahead of his new post-prison smash “Gooba.” Tekashi, railed about how Ari’s single had an alleged final hour sales boost, and then accused Billboard of manipulating the numbers in favor of the two singing superstars. And now, Ariana, 27, and Justin, 26, are ganging up against him.
First, Ariana took to her Instagram account where she responded to Tekashi’s accusations, but without saying his name. She wrote, “I would like to address a few things which i don’t usually do (I don’t give my energy to drama or strange accusations normally but this has gone a little too far)…my fans bought the song. JUSTIN’S fans bought the song. OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE). They are ride or die motherf**kers and I thank god every day that I have them in my life. Not just when they fight for us to win (even when I ask them not to as I did this week) but because they’re some of the greatest people I know.” Read below:
I ask u to take a moment to humble yourself. Be grateful you’re even here. That people want to listen to u at all
After reading her statement, Tekashi responded with a video—with the caption, “You say for me to be humble….I don’t think you know what humble is……….YOU ARE VERY TALENTED AND BEAUTIFUL GOD BLESS YOU. But you will NEVER UNDERSTAND MY PAIN.”

@arianagrande All I’m saying is I worked super hard to make it out of Brooklyn NY. I speak for the millions of kids who aren’t as fortunate as you. The millions who weren’t fortunate to be on T.V.. LIFE is REAL when you’re on welfare LIFE is REAL when you grow up with out a father. You don’t know what that is like. You say for me to be humble …. I don’t think you know what humble is………. YOU ARE VERY TALENTED AND BEAUTIFUL GOD BLESS YOU. But you will NEVER UNDERSTAND MY PAIN 💯
Tekashi seemed to think losing out on number one to Ariana and Justin due to some last minute shenanigans could happen to him. He posted an Instagram video on May 16 where he said, “I’ll be real disappointed if Billboard gets paid for number ones, somehow manipulates the charts. I want the whole world to see this cause what I’m about to show you is what every (record) label in the world gets.”
Justin, however, having to read enough about the accusation, took to his social media to speak out. “He says his streams don’t count. Yes they do but he is counting his global streams and this is a domestic chart so only domestic streams count.’’

The long message continued, “He said 30k was bought with 6 credit cards but that is a lie,” Justin continued. “The rules are clear one credit card can buy max 4 copies. Anything over that the entire amount gets thrown out. Nielsen company checks this and found all our sales were legit because our fans are amazing and bought them.” Justin then defended his fanbase, adding, “Don’t discredit our fan base with false info.” To end his note, Justin pointed out that Tekashi shouldn’t be picking a fight with Ariana alone. “This is my song with Ariana Grande and I’m honored to work with her to help raise money for a great cause,” he wrote, referring to the First Responders Children’s Foundation. In conclusion, Justin wrote, “If you gonna say her name make sure you say mine because it’s our song.”
Although Billboard has not publicly commented on the allegations, Tekashi’s chart history has mysteriously disappeared from their site. Wheww, he only been out of the jail for a few days, and now he’s engaged in a battle between two of the most influential pop singers of all time. The nerve.
