It looks like Justin Bieber couldn’t wait to get back to the East Coast, and model Hailey Baldwin.
The 20-year-old superstar was spotted leaving an apartment complex and a dinner date at the Mr. Chow restaurant with his longtime pal in New York City on Friday (December 26).
The pair met up after Justin jetted over from Canada, after spending the Christmas break with his father and two younger siblings, Jaxon, 5, and Jazmyn, 7, in Ontario.
As his Christmas Day social media posts reveal, the “Heartbreaker” singer treated himself to a luxurious, new private jet.
Biebs and Hailey possibly coordinated their all-black looks for the first part of their evening in Manhattan.
He wore a long-sleeved jersey, leather pants, and covering his platinum blonde hair with a gray beanie. The model wore a black shirt, skinny trousers, and a long “Matrix” black coat with white, Nike sneakers.
Both appeared shy when they were snapped by paparazzi leaving Mr Chow. Hailey kept her hand over her mouth, while Justin smiled and held what appeared to be a foil wrapped plate up to his face before they got into a waiting vehicle.
“I have come in and out of my building at least 5 times today — and I’ve been wearing a different outfit each time,” Hailey tweeted on Friday, possibly in response to salty remarks from fans.
E! is reporting Hailey met Bieber at his “home” and they were then chauffeur driven to Mr Chow. It’s not specified where that “home” is. The outlet adds, an eyewitness said the two looked like a couple and that the model brought a gift for the singer.
The eyewitness said the pair later returned to Bieber’s residence. Again, it’s not specified. Then, on Saturday morning, the two were reportedly seen at a diner in New Jersey.
On Saturday afternoon, Hailey took to Twitter to clarify where she spent the night, “Glad I got such a good night sleep last night, at MY own home, alone,” she said.
And according to another eyewitness, who tweeted about her encounter then posted an Instagram video (shown below), the two took in a showing of Mark Wahlberg’s movie The Gambler in New Jersey.
Later Friday, Hailey tweeted and Instagammed a shot of her and Laura [Lentz’s] “naked knees” as she captioned the pic.
So it looks like she and Justin visited the New Jersey home of mutual friends Pastor Carl Lentz of Hillsong’s NYC Church and wife Laura, which they share with their three children.
Sources tell the Inquisitr, Justin stayed overnight at the Lentzs’ and — according to Hailey — she left at some point to go home to her own apartment in Manhattan.
Back in October, Justin stayed with the Lentzs’ following his breakup with actress-singer, Selena Gomez. Bieber and Hailey also attended numerous Hillsong services together and were seen leaving Pastor Lentz’s recent birthday celebration in NYC earlier this year.
Speculation about a romance between the singer and model sparked after they were seen hanging out just after Thanksgiving and ever since. They were seen hiking in Los Angeles, partying with friends Chris Brown and Kendall Jenner in Washington state, indoor go-kart racing in California, battling with Nerf guns, sharing clothes and spending time in recording studios.
However, both have publicly denied they are dating each other.
Two weeks ago, Justin took to Instagram to address the rumors. Alongside a pic of himself and the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, he wrote,
“People are crazy. I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise.”
For her part, Hailey previously told E! she has known Justin since she was 13-years-old and “stayed close” with the singer.
Whether or not the pair’s friendship is developing into something romantic, it’s clear they enjoy each other’s company.
“Jailey” for 2015?
