5SOS Guy’s GF Shades Arzaylea for Buying Followers After Cheating Scandal
Arzaylea Rodriguez has kept pretty quiet since rumors started to swirl that she cheated on Luke Hemmings and ultimately caused their breakup. Sure, the ~model~ occasionally posts a picture with a lengthy, slightly confusing caption, but her Instagram-upload pace is no where NEAR what it used to be. Pair this with the fact that she, ya know, was probably not faithful to a celebrity with millions of young girls supporting him, and it makes sense that she was losing followers pretty rapidly. But suddenly, the 22-year-old went from have 466,000 to 475,000 followers on Instagram in basically a blink of an eye. Weird, right?

A lot of people accuse stars of purchasing fake IG accounts to up their follower count, but NGL — Arz’s newbies are definitely a bit sketchy.

Will we ever know for sure if Arzaylea actually bought followers in the wake of the cheating scandal? Probably not. But what we DO know is that Crystal Leigh, Michael Clifford‘s girlfriend who USED to be the brunette’s close friend, seems to be pretty sure this is what’s happening.
buy stocks, not followers

CL’s diss comes exactly one week after Halsey seriously shaded the 5SOS guy’s ex, proving that basically no one in the 20-year-old’s circle is a fan of Arz.
Add this to the list of feuds Arzaylea’s gotten into in recent months:
When she went to war with the #5SOSFam
It's tough for fans when they realize their fave is dating someone who isn't them. Heck — Justin Bieber deleted his whole freaking Instagram after his GF at the time, Sofia Richie, started getting hate from his fans. But perhaps no famous girlfriend has gotten more hate than Arzaylea, and TBH, it's probably because she bites back!
There have been reports of Luke Hemmings' former GF insulting fans on multiple occasions — including one time when she called security on them at a Blackbear concert in 2015. (Psst: Blackbear will come back later, so remember that name).
Fans also feel she purposely and callously flaunts her relationship. One named Lindsay Weber told Vice, "But you don't have to be pessimistic or even biased to see that she's thirsty for fame, inconsiderate, and an alien to anything but a privileged life. Seeing our young, awkward, adorable Luke dating someone like that made the majority of the fandom upset."
The social media star obviously doesn't take the fans' comments seriously, however. "[Luke's fans] want me to be this really horrible person, but I'm not," she said in the same Vice article. "I'm just a really normal girl who just happens to date someone not so normal."
