Hailey Baldwin seems to have made contact with Ariana Grande, the woman who her rumored boyfriend, Justin Bieber, was caught flirting with on Instagram just weeks ago.
A short time after Hailey Baldwin traveled with Bieber to Anguilla, where the reported couple celebrated Christmas and New Year’s with his family, and appeared to make their romance official, screenshots surfaced of Bieber commenting on Grande’s good looks. Following the release of the shots, Bieber kept a low profile, choosing not to comment further. However, Grande took to Twitter and hinted she would never entertain the idea of a Bieber hookup.

In addition to the “lol no” seen above, Grande also said, “not today Satan,” but didn’t confirm who it was who her message was for. Then, at the end of last month, Grande posted a message to Hailey Baldwin’s account after the 19-year-old model shared an editorial photo from one of her shoots with fans. In the message, seen below, Grande paid Hailey Baldwin a compliment.

Although the comment didn’t mention Bieber, it certainly seemed odd that the two women would be in communication, especially after Bieber seemingly betrayed Hailey Baldwin, at least virtually, just a short while after they went public with what appeared to be a real romance.
Meanwhile, after Bieber’s comment to Grande was shared, fans were left wondering what was going on between him and Hailey Baldwin. After all, just weeks prior, the couple was posing together on the beach, and sharing a passionate kiss for New Year’s Eve.
Hailey Baldwin hasn’t yet commented on the status of her and Bieber’s relationship, but she did share a new tweet on January 31, letting her fans know she was staying positive.

While fans may never get a straight answer in regard to what’s really going on with Hailey Baldwin and Bieber, they rumored couple may have parted ways last month due to Baldwin pressuring the 21-year-old to get serious. According to a Hollywood Life report, Hailey Baldwin dealt an ultimatum to Bieber around the time of their trip, and unfortunately, it appears to have completely backfired.
“Justin has never liked when people tell him what he can and can’t do. 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 said.
As the source revealed, Bieber began pulling away from Hailey Baldwin after they arrived home from Aguilla, which seemed pretty clear in the media, as the couple were only photographed together a couple of times, and haven’t been seen in weeks.
Still, claimed the source, Bieber would likely settle down if the right woman came into his life.
“Unfortunately for [Hailey Baldwin], 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 explained, with another adding, “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.”
