Nessa Barrett is not here for the trolls.
In a new IGTV video posted today, the TikTok star-turned-singer addressed criticism that she’s a “homewrecker”. The video is the latest installment in Nessa’s new reality series life’s a ness airing exclusively on Instagram.
After sharing Justin Bieber’s Instagram post to her stories, Nessa explains that she received a DM that read, “Don’t seal him too, Miss Homewrecker”.
The influencer then went on to defend herself, saying, “I actually have never been a homewrecker before in my entire life, I’ll tell you that right now. You can’t wreck a home if there’s no home to wreck.”
Earlier this year, Nessa found herself involved in a love triangle when Mads and Jaden parted ways following rumours that Jaden had cheated on Mads with Nessa while the two were working on music together. Mads and Nessa were best friends at the time.
On March 31st, Mads seemingly confirmed this speculation when she posted a TikTok video to Taylor Swift’s ‘Better Than Revenge’. In the now-deleted TikTok, Mads spliced together a compilation of photos and videos of her and Jaden with clips of Jaden and Nessa together after they released their song. She ended the TikTok lip-syncing to the lyric, “She took him faster than you could say sabotage”.
Mads, Jaden, Nessa, and Nessa’s then on-again-off-again boyfriend Josh Richards went on to post several cryptic tweets and comments about the situation. On April 14th, Mads was a guest on the Call Her Daddy podcast where she shared her side of the story, dropping the bomb that Jaden and Nessa like each other.
In the following weeks, Jaden and Nessa made their relationship public and have been together ever since.
Despite Nessa’s claims that she was not involved in the split, Mads told Dixie D’Amelio and Noah Beck on ‘The Early Late Night Show’ back in May that Nessa allegedly did steal Jaden from her. “I don’t like people who steal your boyfriends, but it’s fine,” Mads said of Nessa.
With conflicting stories from both sides, we’re thinking the truth is somewhere in the middle.
