Justin Bieber reportedly hooked up with supermodel Adriana Lima in Cannes, France, despite initial tabloid reports stating the Brazilian beauty snubbed the superstar.
So, this is a turnaround.
It was previously claimed Justin Bieber’s pursuit of Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima led to a super-awkward snub for the Canadian star in what was a whirlwind party week in Cannes, France, during the 67th film festival.
But new reports claim the pair hooked up after hanging out at a local nightclub.
Adriana, who is 12 years Justin’s senior, split from retired basketball player Marko Jaric in early May, after five years of marriage.
Citing sources, Us Weekly reports Justin zeroed in on Adriana while partying at the 1 OAK bash at the Gotha Nightclub on May 19 through to May 20.
“Justin pursued her hard,” a pal of Lima’s told the magazine, adding that at a private house party later that night, “they were talking nonstop.”
The insider continued, “They went home together around 5 am.”
That Justin posted an Instagram of himself and Adriana, which he captioned, “I think she foreign, I think she foreign,” a reference to lyrics from his single “Confident.”
News of Justin and Adriana’s “hook-up” has left many wondering if their reported tryst could become something more.
However, Us Weekly reports a Bieber source, “He had fun with Adriana,” adding, “[But] it won’t turn into anything serious.”
Lima wasn’t the only female company Justin was seen with in Europe.
The 20-year-old, who seems to have moved on effortlessly from ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez to a medley of models, was spotted in a cozy scenario in Cannes with Barbara Palvin.
Bieber met the Hungarian model at a Victoria’s Secret fashion show in November 2012 and was rumored to have had a fling with her.
In Cannes, Barbara was seen stroking Justin’s face at fashion designer Roberto Cavalli’s yacht bash just days after partying with Lima.
E! News reported a source said Bieber “went straight over” to Palvin and “started chatting and flirting” with her aboard the moored yacht.
“They were clearly really happy to see each other and were smiling, laughing and touching each other’s’ hair and face,” the source went on.
The confidant added that when Bieber left the party to return to his hotel, shortly after Palvin arrived at the same hotel.

Bieber capped his whirlwind Cannes stay by donating $546,000 at the 21st Cinema Against AIDS amfAR Gala during the event auction.
The singer outbid Leonardo DiCaprio for a Bulgari necklace, and is reportedly a gift for his mother Pattie Mallette.
During a jaunt to Monte Carlo, Monaco, after Cannes, Bieber was seen yachting with buddy Cody Simpson’s ex-girlfriend model Gigi Hadid and other friends over the Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend.
After returning briefly to New York City for a wedding, Justin openly flirted with sometime gal pal, 18-year-old fitness model, and senior high student Yovanna Ventura on Instagram.
The Biebs certainly appears to be living every male fantasy.
And then some.
