During a new interview, the model addressed a longtime rumor that she started seeing Justin Bieber before he broke up with Selena Gomez back in 2018. This would pretty much mean that they began their relationship by cheating!
While on Ashley Graham‘s Pretty Big Deal podcast, Hailey Baldwin set the record straight, putting an end to the speculations.
‘People don’t know, too, we had been talking for a while before we got back together. Contrary to popular belief, he’d been single for a while and I’d been single and we were kind of trying to figure life out,’ Hailey shared.
As fans may remember, back in 2018, Justin Bieber reunited with his on again, off again love, Selena Gomez.
This caused many to think that their favorite couple was finally getting their happy ending together.
But that couldn’t be any further from the truth! By the first month of spring, more trouble in paradise emerged between the two singers.
Then, by June or so, Justin was already dating his friend and former fling, Hailey Baldwin!
Soon after, they got engaged, Justin popping the big question in July while they were on a vacation in the Bahamas.
Their whirlwind romance came with many accusations that they started dating before Justin and Selena were over!
The happy couple completely ignored the backlash while bashing in the joy of their engagement at that point but Selena did seem to confirm Justin hadn’t cheated on her with Hailey.
In her hit song, Lose You to Love Me, some lyrics go: ‘In two months you replaced us like it was easy,’ suggesting that she was upset he moved on so fast but not that he cheated.
During the same interview, Hailey also admitted that their romance transformed into marriage really quickly: ‘Everything happened really fast, I think everybody knows that. Everybody was kind of, like, ‘Hey, did you get married?’’
