Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber haven’t been seen together in weeks, but judging by her Instagram and Twitter feeds, she’s staying busy with other things. In addition to her fashion week duties around the globe, Hailey Baldwin has been spending time with friends, and possibly sub-tweeting her ex-boyfriend on Twitter.
“To not forgive is to be a victim of someone else’s bad behavior”

As soon as Hailey Baldwin shared the message on March 6, fans began to speculate about the possibility of the message being about Bieber, but because Hailey Baldwin didn’t name names, it is hard to say what prompted the tweet. Still, one particular fan suggested Hailey Baldwin posted the message in an effort to remain relevant as the possibly scorned ex-girlfriend of the 21-year-old singer.
Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber were romantically linked at the end of last year, when they traveled to Anguilla to celebrate the holidays with his family. However, a short time after they returned, Bieber was spotted with a number of other women, including Kourtney Kardashian, Sarah Jeffery, and Jessica Serfaty, and their relationship was believed to have ended — but the two didn’t stay away from one another for long.
In early February, weeks after breakup reports first surfaced, Hailey Baldwin and Bieber were spotted together yet again, this time in San Francisco, where they both attended a Super Bowl event and posed for an Instagram photo.
Hailey Baldwin appeared to be the first woman since Selena Gomez that Bieber was starting to take seriously, but as quickly as their relationship began, he set the record straight, revealing that despite how things between him and Hailey Baldwin may look, he’s not interested in a committed relationship.
“I don’t want to put anyone in a position where they feel like I’m only theirs, only to be hurt in the end,” Bieber explained to GQ magazine in February. “Right now in my life, I don’t want to be held down by anything. I already have a lot that I have to commit to. A lot of responsibilities. I don’t want to feel like the girl I love is an added responsibility. I know that in the past I’ve hurt people and said things that I didn’t mean to make them happy in the moment. So now I’m just more so looking at the future, making sure I’m not damaging them. What if [Hailey Baldwin] ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged. It’s really hard to fix wounds like that. It’s so hard.… I just don’t want to hurt her.”
Once an official romance was taken off the table, Hailey Baldwin appeared to distance herself from Bieber, and at the end of February, she was seen cozying up to Lewis Hamilton on the red carpet at Elton John’s Oscar viewing party.

At the time, no one knew what to think of Hailey Baldwin’s red carpet PDA with Hamilton. Because they’ve been friends for a while, many didn’t take it as anything substantial, but others believed there may be a romance between them — and it wouldn’t be the first time these two were linked (Hailey Baldwin also faced rumors last fall).

On March 6, amid swirling rumors of a relationship, Hailey Baldwin stepped out at yet another event, and also in attendance was Hamilton. As the Daily Mail reported, Hailey Baldwin and Hamilton were photographed while partying in honor of Dolce & Gabbana on Sunday night.
