Miley Cyrus has branded Stefano Gabbana a "d***head" after he claimed her "fine as f**k" friend Selena Gomez was "so ugly" on Instagram recently.
The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker has jumped to the 25-year-old singer's defence after the outspoken Italian designer - who is the co-founder of the luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana - badmouthed her after a fan asked for his opinion on her fashion sense.
Taking to Instagram this week, Miley, 25, said in the comments section of a photograph of them posing together shared by a fan page: "Well what that d**k head said (if it's true) is f***ing false and total bulls**t. She's fine as f**k."
Gabbana found himself in hot water recently when he responded to an Instagram post by The Catwalk Italia showing Selena in a montage of red dresses.
Gabanna commented in Italian: "è proprio brutta", which roughly translated means "she's so ugly."
A legion of Selena fans hit back at the designer, including actress Jaime King who claimed the fashion guru clearly couldn't handle the "beauty" of Selena's "soul and physical being" and encouraged her followers to boycott the brand.
