Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin sure seem to be inseparable right now, and more than a few think the longtime pals are dating — or on the verge of doing so.
Multiple eyewitnesses spotted the “Confident” singer and the model at The City Church in Seattle at a service with the Biebs’ friend — pastor Judah Smith — on Sunday, December 14. According to an Instagram posted by the star, the pair jetted to Washington from L.A. on Saturday.
Last night, photos surfaced on Twitter of Hailey and Justin sitting beside each other at the church, after fans shared messages, pics and a video of the famous pair.
One onlooker wrote, “Just casually sitting near Justin Bieber in church rn no big deal.”
Another posted, “I can confirm justin biebers hair actually looks good bleached cuz he’s kinda sitting across from me in church rn [right now] but it’s whatever.”
Hailey and the Biebs’ weekend hangout comes after the 18-year-old model recently shut down romance rumors, when E! News asked if she was dating the singer.
Inevitably, this led to speculation that Justin might be trying to make his former girlfriend, Selena Gomez jealous.
However, Hailey insisted to E!. “I’ve known him since I was so young — since I was like 13 — and we’ve just been good friends over the years. We have just stayed close and there’s nothing more to it than that,”
One pic of the pals at the church seemed to show the Canadian texting at one point during the service. However, a fellow churchgoer tweeted that the service included a “discussion” segment, and the audience was invited to text in questions.
Later Sunday, Hailey, Justin and mutual pal model Kendall Jenner, posted Instagram pics taken in the same location, reportedly still in Washington.
The pretty daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin is seen vamping it up in a crop top, pants, jacket and sneakers, with Kendall in more or less the same. The BFF’s pout session took place in a graffiti-painted corridor lit in red, that may have been in a studio.
“bae bae,” Hailey wrote alongside the shot.
Meanwhile, Justin shared a goofy snap of himself with buddy Chris Brown. The 20-year-old singer is seen pinning the older star — who had just performed a show — to a wall with his hand, with similar graffiti in the background.
“Had fun with the homey @Chrisbrownofficial,” the newly-platinum blonde singer noted.
Hailey and Justin’s Sunday exploits capped a long weekend that began when she arrived in L.A. from New York on Thursday, (December 11). That night, she joined the singer and videographer Alfredo Flores at a Los Angeles recording studio for a late session.
Social media posts followed.
Then, on Friday, the Biebs took his now constant companion to the State Social House bar and eatery in West Hollywood, X17Online.com reported.
From the video below, it’s revealed the two were actually joined by other pals.
Roll to Saturday, Hailey and Justin were spotted walking in L.A’s Runyon Canyon Park.
Both were sportily dressed, with the Biebs going shirtless.
Several fans spotted the pair at an L.A. recording studio the same day.

Despite Hailey’s denial to E!, the resurfaced romance questions are understandable given that Justin hung out with the model just after Thanksgiving in New York and Los Angeles, and their previous meets.
So, are the pals rebound dating after Selena, or is this a serious, intimate relationship that has developed out of their long-standing friendship? If so, fans mourning the end of Jelena may have to accept that era is finally over.
For her part, Hailey seemed to answer the furor on Twitter, recently writing,
If people paid closer attention to the things they were trying to solve, they would answer a lot of their own questions.
