Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner (who are pals), can’t do much these days without setting off an avalanche of romance-speculating reports that drag the Canadian’s former girlfriend Selena Gomez in for added hoopla.
So, Justin and Kendall starring together in the new Instagram video the heartthrob posted on Wednesday morning, should kick off the mid-week mayhem nicely.
The “Home To Mama” singer captioned the 15-second video, “Cute little coffee cup,” and he and Kendall are adorable in it.
The 20-year-old singer’s face isn’t shown during the clip. But Justin’s voice is heard as he addresses a seated Kendall, seen wearing the same black leather pants and tan coat she wore to a Hillsong Church service with Justin and best friend Hailey Baldwin, in New York City on Sunday, November 9.
This suggests the video may have been recorded on Sunday.
“Wait, wait, wait, wait,” Justin says, while moving a takeout coffee cup Kendall holds on the table between them.
As he does so, the 19-year-old reality-TV-star-turned supermodel is heard giggling in the background, while unidentified people mill around them in a room.
Continuing, Justin jokes, “Regular sized coffee cup, and…” He emphasized the final word, to set up the punchline of Kendall thrusting a smaller expresso cup towards the camera as she squeals once then laughs.
“So cute!” the Biebs says, his voice breaking slightly, before adding, “Little coffee… ”
No doubt, the rumor mill will wonder if the newest comedians in town were flirting.
And who knows? Justin is a free agent now, as is Kendall.
More importantly, what’s the consensus on Kendall’s new shoulder-length “lob” haircut?

Multiple eyewitnesses saw Justin, Kendall and Hailey attend a Hillsong Church service in New York City on Sunday.
The singer was also seen with Hailey at the birthday party of his friend, Pastor Carl Lentz of Hillsong Church NYC, last Thursday.
Gossip media had a field day with Bieber and Baldwin’s attendance at the bash, despite a longstanding friendship and Hillsong’s popular reputation among a young, hip crowd, that includes celebrities.
Some of the furor was because it’s Bieber. But, also, a few hours earlier, Selena sat down for an interview on “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” after premiering her emotional, raw video and single, “The Heart Wants What It Wants.”
The video has pulled in over 15 million views on YouTube since November 6. During her interview, the former Disney starlet confirmed the unflattering portrayal of the male in the video represented Justin.
In her chat, Selena also claimed her post-Coachella Instagram unfollow of Kendall and her sister Kylie after their festival hangout in April wasn’t over a feud.
“We were never not friends,” she told Seacrest on the radio show, adding that she made a decision to only follow fans on Instagram and “didn’t realize it [her Jenners unfollow] would start so much stuff.”
A video of the Latina singing Happy Birthday to Kendall with Cara Delevingne and friends during Jenner’s recent 19th celebrations seems to confirm this.
It also undermines a sensationalist story from notorious tabloid In Touch Weekly, claiming Justin and Kendall were more than friends.
The magazine also alleged Selena and Justin split up because he took Kendall to dinner during a Paris Fashion Week trip with Gomez, allegedly behind the actress-singer’s back.
Meanwhile, Justin has been on something of a religious intensive following his breakup with Selena.
At the end of October, he stayed with Lentz and attended church services and Bible study, before joining Pastor Judah Smith’s “Jesus Is” tour for two days, according to our sources.
Justin also dropped by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Bible study session on Saturday, before his Sunday church visit.
Justin’s caption, “The old is gone the new is here” #workinprogress,” is a bible quote taken from 2 Corinthians 5:17. It reads,
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” and refers to letting go of old, harmful attitudes for a new, spiritual perspective.
Mail Online reports the singer was also seen climbing out of an SUV in New York City on Tuesday morning, clutching a notebook and pen, possibly the same stationary seen in his Instagram.
It seems Justin isn’t just good at making Kendall laugh in Instagram videos with “cute little coffee cups.” He also seems to be making some positive, personal changes aided by his Christian faith.
