Instagram official! Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have recently been spotted kissing and canoodling in NYC, and leaving fans with one burning question: Are they or aren’t they an item? It’s a tricky question, but the duo seemingly confirmed that they are at least casually seeing each other over the weekend. The “Sorry” singer shared a video on his Instagram story, and Hailey made a cameo!
She playfully stuck out her tongue while sitting next to the Biebs as he rested his head on a table. It’s unclear which coast they were on, but they weren’t alone — there were several voices in the background of the video. At this point, Justin and Hailey have yet to give fans any verbal confirmation that they are dating, but this footage is more than we ever got from him and Selena Gomez.
If that’s any indication of Jailey’s relationship status, it probably means things are getting pretty serious. This isn’t the first time Justin and Hailey have tried taking their friendship to a romantic level, though. Back in 2016, Justin shared a photo of the two kissing while on vacation with his family. Unfortunately, things fizzled out, and they weren’t pictured together for months.
Oddly enough, just weeks before they publicly rekindled their love, Hailey chatted with the UK publication, The Times, about what really went on with Justin a couple years ago. “Justin and I were friends for a long time,” she said in the interview. “I met him when I was really young, and he was one of my best friends. Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you’re 18, 19. It was what it was.”
She added, “We didn’t speak for quite some time [after the split], and there was a lot of weirdness that went on. [But], we’ve moved past that.” Clearly, they’ve moved way past it.
