Canadian singer Justin Bieber posted a blurry image on his Instagram account on Monday, showing him and model Hailey Baldwin passionately kissing in the middle of a party. The 21-year-old pop star was spotted lip-locking with the 19-year-old model at a New Year’s Eve party held by club owner Richie Akiva. Hailey Baldwin, who looked sexy in a pair of Daisy Dukes, reportedly made out with Bieber in full view of other attendees.
The “Where Are U Now” singer performed earlier that night at Leonardo DiCaprio’s St. Barths New Years Eve party, where he was joined by the award-winning actor’s pals, Kevin Connolly and Lukas Haas, as well as R&B singer Robin Thicke.
Earlier last week, Bieber also shared some images of him and Hailey spending some private time together, and there is definitely chemistry between the two young celebs. The rumored couple went on a Caribbean getaway at the famous Saint Barthélemy islands, where the two allegedly did a lot of PDA. In one photo Hailey Baldwin poses and flaunts her bikini body as Justin Bieber gazes into the camera. Both of them appear to be genuinely happy with each other’s company.
In addition to spending time with Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin was also seen sharing some quality time with Justin’s younger siblings, which raised assumptions that she is the singer’s new girl. The “Sorry” singer posted another image, in which he is wearing a white suit and seated next to Baldwin, who is rocking a metallic dress with a plunging neckline.
During the course of the holiday season, Justin probably went home to Stratford, Ontario as well, as his grandmother Kate was present in one of the snapshots. The statuesque daughter of Stephen Baldwin was also seen in the picture. In spite of the rumors about their true status as a couple, Hailey Baldwin said in February that they are “just friends,” and that she has known the “Baby” singer since she was 13.
“I’m trying to be a good friend and be there for him and support him, but any male in his place, any girl that’s around him they automatically assume. That’s the world we live in. I’m just trying to be there for him and support him as a friend.”
Hailey’s dad is Stephen Baldwin, younger brother of 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin. Aside from being an actor, he is also a born-again Christian evangelist. He was known for his role in the 1995 film The Usual Suspects. Hailey Baldwin will be next seen in a Vogue Korea spread shot by photographer Peter Ash Lee. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber also shared his two cents about the rumor more than a year ago. He even posted an image of himself and Hailey together – just to prove his point that they have known each other for so long. “People are crazy. I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise,” he said at that time.
However, the fact that they have known each other for a long time may be another sign that there is a possibility for the two celebrities to take their relationship to the next level. There are other celebrities whom Bieber previously said “were just friends,” ended up getting linked to him as well. The list includes sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande, Jacque Pyles, and Selena Gomez. Whether or not there is truth behind the rumors about a Justin Bieber-Hailey Baldwin romance, their New Year’s smooch may have finally cleared things up.
