Justin Bieber is single and not romantically involved with either Kendall Jenner or Hailey Baldwin, according to a new report.
However, just-surfaced, intrusive, paparazzi-obtained shots of the superstar and the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin may show the pair engaging in PDA in the pool at Justin’s Los Angeles home on Wednesday. More on that below.
For the moment, TMZ is reporting Justin, Hailey, and Kendall are longtime pals, and that their status hasn’t changed.
Despite ante-raising by tabloids over recent pics of Kendall and the shirtless “Confident singer” hiking, then playing volleyball at his pad earlier this week, lunch dates with Hailey, and trips by all three to a comedy club and L.A. Clippers game — the trio are just friends.
The website went on to note that sources said the 20-year-old heartthrob is turning his life around. The Canadian hasn’t been in trouble for months, isn’t hanging out (so much) with his old crowd, and has been working on self-improvement.
Insiders told the site that Justin likes spending time with Hailey and Kendall because they are “relatively drama free and positive.”
The trio are said to like playing sports together, dining out, going to clubs, comedy shows, concerts — and church.
The site reveals Justin, Kendall, and Hailey went to hear the singer’s pastor, Judah Smith, speak on Wednesday night, before going to see All Def Comedy Live at the Inside Jokes Comedy Club in Hollywood later on.
As for the Biebs’ former girlfriend, Selena Gomez, it’s reported they see each other but are not a couple.
Last year, after Hailey and Kendall were asked to address rumors about the nature of their relationships with the Biebs, the models insisted they were just pals.
Previously, Kendall said Bieber was a “longtime family friend” in a Nightline interview last year. While Hailey told E! that she has known the heartthrob as a buddy since the age of 13.
Fast forward to today, photographs obtained and published by Mail Online, may undermine the claim that Bieber and Hailey are just friends.
One of the photos below seems to show the (then) still platinum-blond hitmaker nuzzling the model’s back in his pool.
Equally, the two could be messing about in a non-romantic way.
Another shot appears to show Justin massaging Hailey’s shoulders during their seemingly affectionate afternoon swim.
It is worth noting, there are no kissing snaps and many of the pics could also be seen as two, tactile friends larking around. The nature of photo assumption is that any conclusions drawn are just that — assumptions.
Either way, Bieber is saying he is single, just as he did back in November. At the time, the singer posted a pic of him and Hailey, which he captioned as follows.
“People are crazy. I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise.”
We’ll leave it up to you to decide readers. Is Justin secretly dating Hailey, or is he single as he claims?
