Are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin parting ways just weeks into their reported romance? According to a new report, the recent ultimatum Baldwin allegedly dealt Bieber prior to the start of their relationship has backfired.
On January 13, Us Weekly claimed Hailey Baldwin has demanded the 21-year-old playboy stop stringing her along after rumors hit the web, which alleged he had been hooking up with 36-year-old Kourtney Kardashian, the older half-sister of Hailey Baldwin’s best friend, Kendall Jenner.
“[Hailey Baldwin] demanded he stop stringing her along,” a source close to Bieber told the magazine last week. “She said he would lose her if he didn’t man up and show he was serious about her.”
Although Bieber is infamous for his steady stream of women, as well as his on-again, off-again romance with Selena Gomez, which appeared to be on again just weeks prior to his relationship with Hailey Baldwin, he reportedly took Baldwin’s demands seriously, and opted to give their relationship a real shot.
“Justin has never had a woman act like that before,” the source explained. “He couldn’t say no. So he’s been seeing [Hailey Baldwin] again and is with her all the time.”

Following Hailey Baldwin’s alleged ultimatum, she and Bieber embarked on a holiday trip to Anguilla, where they shared a number of photos together on Instagram. In one of Hailey Baldwin’s photos, she was seen kissing the back of Bieber’s neck with her arms around his chest, and in a photo shared by Bieber, the two were seen enjoying what appeared to be a quite passionate New Year’s Eve kiss. However, while the two seemed to be doing well in Anguilla, a source claims things changed once they returned — and mainly due to Hailey Baldwin’s rumored demands.
“Justin has never liked when people tell him what he can and can’t do,” an insider told Hollywood Life on January 19. “Every time someone in his life has tried to restrain him or given him a hard time about his behavior he has ended up rebelling. His mom tried and she and Justin ended up having a falling out. Selena tried and their relationship hit the rocks. Now the same thing is happening with [Hailey Baldwin] and it’s backfiring on her.”
The source went on to explain that Bieber has been “pulling away” from Hailey Baldwin for the past week after the two were “inseparable” in Anguilla. According to the report, Bieber and Hailey Baldwin get along great, but her alleged demands for a serious relationship have seemingly put a damper on their relationship.
“As soon as [Hailey Baldwin] pushed for a relationship Justin went cold,” the source revealed.
In addition, Bieber simply doesn’t have the sort of feelings needed to embark on the committed relationship Hailey Baldwin was reportedly wanting.
“Unfortunately for Hailey, Justin still just doesn’t have the same sort of feeling for her that he did for Selena. He’s still searching for a girl who made him feel like she did,” the source continued. “Right now Justin and [Hailey Baldwin] are just really good friends. Yeah they are hooking up and she definitely wants a commitment from him but lately they have just been ‘f’ buddies.”

Hailey Baldwin has been photographed by paparazzi a number of times since arriving back to Los Angeles from her trip to Anguilla with Bieber, but so far, all of her outings have either been solo, or included her close friend, Jenner.
