When it comes to Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s relationship status, we just can’t figure it out. They’ve gone from dating to dating other people to being “just friends” who make out on the streets of N.Y.C.
Well, the mystery may finally be over. On Saturday, Bieber seemingly made things Instagram official by posting a video of himself and Hailey hanging out. As the singer rests his head down on a table, Hailey looks directly at the camera and playfully sticks her tongue out.
It may not seem like much evidence of an exclusive relationship, but for Biebs, this is a big deal. When he and on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez briefly reconciled their love for each other in early 2018, the 24-year-old did not post any pictures or videos of the two canoodling.
Furthermore, the pair reportedly called it quits shortly after attending couple’s therapy for trust issues arising from Justin’s contact with Hailey.
Last week, Hailey and Justin were spotted making out all over New York City in plain sight. And before that, they vacationed together in Miami in early June—a month after the model and her rumored beau Shawn Mendes made their couple debut at the 2018 Met Gala.
By late May, Baldwin told The Times UK that she and the Biebs were just friends. “We hang out and he’s super-lovely and a very, very nice young gentleman,” she said. “But I am single. The dating pool is small. It’s rare to find somebody that has the same ideas and morals as me. I have found people like that before, though, which is refreshing.”
She also added that her public relationship with the singer was “weird,” saying: “I’d never been through [a high-profile relationship] like that,” she said. “But it brought both of us to the realization that we just work much better as friends. He’s somebody I really cherish. Now it’s a very mature situation. It’s good.”
Fast forward a month, and they’ve seemingly sealed their status with silly faces on social media. These two move fast, try to keep up.
