Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s relationship has confused and fascinated people for a while.

According to some quarters in the rumor mill, the two are more than friends — despite all their denials — mainly because many think no female can resist the Biebs.

It turns out Hailey’s dad, actor Stephen Baldwin, had the definitive answer all along.

Splash News recently caught up with him and straight up asked if his daughter and Justin are dating.

“No. They’re not,” Baldwin replied firmly, after an unreadable laugh. “And it’s just nice to see in this day and age that two adults, who have known each other since she was 12, can just be friends. Isn’t that cool?”

Asked for his opinion as to why gossip media seems obsessed over Justin and Hailey’s status, the older star had a ready answer.

“I just think the media likes to get people to… click on this and that, and sell newspapers,” Baldwin replied.

The born-again, ultra-conservative, who lives in New York, also had praise for Bieber.

“Justin’s doing great,” he said of the superstar. “He’s been in New York hanging out with Pastor Carl Lentz from Hillsong NYC, and that’s where Hailey goes to church. So it’s all good.”

Pressed for a final opinion on whether his girl and the Canadian star would make a good couple — if things ever changed — Stephen’s reply seems to make it clear he would not approve.

“I think it’s best that they just be friends,” he said, before flashing a shark-like smile.

So there you have it. Justin and Hailey aren’t dating, as far as her father is concerned.

Earlier this week, the pair were seen leaving the back entrance of Nobu restaurant in NYC following a dinner date.

They were also spotted enjoying an affectionate swim that involved massages last month.
