LONDON - Justin Bieber has reactivated his Instagram account two weeks after he closed it down after a spat with his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

The What Do You Mean hitmaker shocked Beliebers across the world when he decided to deactivate his account on the photo sharing platform after a public spat with his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

Fans who now try to access the singer's account are no longer met with an error message but are instead presented with a string of pictures and videos the 22-year-old singer has posted during his two-week absence.

The As Long As You Love Me singer opted to close down his profile when he feuded with Selena, 23, over a comment he made about his fans being mean to the people he likes.

He wrote at the time, "I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate. This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like (sic)"

However, Selena wasn't having any of it, telling the star, "If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol - it should be special between you two only. Don't be mad at your fans. They love you (sic)."

And Justin soon fired back, "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I'm not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers (sic)."

The former couple then went on to accuse each other of cheating, with Justin ending the argument by writing, "I cheated...Oh and I forgot about you and Zayn (sic)"

However, later on, Selena admitted she regretted the online spat, telling her Snapchat followers that "what she said was selfish and pointless".
