Smug moment influencer tells her followers to ‘open a book and read’ – even though she makes a living on Instagram

An Australian influencer has offered a smug and tone-deaf response after one of her followers asked for her thoughts on a rumoured celebrity feud.

Bella Varelis hosted a Q&A on Tuesday, and was asked for her thoughts on the fan-speculated rivalry between Justin and Hailey Bieber and his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

She responded by reflecting on her own fame as a former Bachelor contestant, then encouraged her fans to ‘read a book’ instead of online celebrity gossip.

‘Thoughts on the Selena & Hailey drammaaa???’ the follower asked. 

‘Not giving it any attention and either should you,’ she responded. ‘If I’ve learnt one thing being in my position, from personal experience, 99 per cent of what you read online is factually incorrect.’

‘The amount of times people have thought I’ve done something on purpose and I wasn’t even aware of it is ridiculous,’ she added.

‘All it does is bring negative hate and energy to that person.’

She continued: ‘Whether it’s true or untrue, don’t be one of those people, if you want to read something, open a book.’

Despite saying she wants people to read books rather than engage with social media, Bella actually needs people to follow her on Instagram to make a living.

She regularly promotes fashion and beauty brands to her 109,000 followers and recently launched her own clothing label.

In January last year, she accidentally revealed her earnings as an influencer. 

She shared a post on Instagram that showed her bank details, confirming she had more than $98,000 in her savings account.

While she quickly deleted the post, it was screenshotted by a fan and later reuploaded by the private influencer.updates.au Instagram account.

Bella has been nursing heartbreak of late, revealing in September last year she had split from her photographer boyfriend Will Stokoe after two years of dating.

She said she was hoping to keep the split private, but had no choice but to address it publicly due to her celebrity status and the ‘constant questions’ from fans.

‘I feel like it’s best to answer this once so the prying will stop because it’s really affecting me by being asked about this daily,’ she said.

‘Will and I decided to take some time apart and go our separate ways to focus on ourselves.

‘We have so much love and respect for each other but this is just what’s best for both of us now.

‘I love you guys and am so grateful for the love and support you’ve given us over the last two years.’
