"Out here being the best gf and making his lock screen something that he likes😇😇😇," she captioned the video.

In the TikTok, the woman holds her boyfriend's phone and shows the screenshot of the other woman displayed. Stevens also lip-syncs to the viral sound from Taylor Swift's "I Bet You Think About Me," where she sings the lyrics “Oh my god, she’s insane."

1. She literally called herself petty for doing it- she's aware that it is. 2. you don't have to go through someone's phone to see that they liked a pic on Instagram, just follow them- ya know, like friends do? Seems like a healthy relationship if they can joke. lighten up people

If you have nothing to hide then no reason to worry about you significant other messing with your phone. Sounds to me like she really was just trying to be funny not petty.
