Sofia Richie is Justin Bieber girlfriend 2016, but not all of his fans are thrilled with his latest romance.

Richie started showing up on Bieber’s IG account over the weekend. Since then, her IG has been flooded with harsh comments, so the 17-year-old model has disabled comments on her account. The Sorry singer has warned that he will set his Instagram on private if the backlash to her girlfriend will not stop.
