Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin. Are they or aren’t they dating, romancing, whatever you want to call it?
Both have previously said they are single – and who can blame them with all the scrutiny? – but is it actually the case?
The longtime pals heated up the rumor mill on Sunday (June 14) after paparazzi-obtained pics surfaced of them jet skiing at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Miami, Florida.
It’s worth noting that none of the photos reveal any PDA or out-of-the-ordinary closeness between Justin and Hailey, but the singer did write “The one and only @haileybaldwin” in his caption to a snap of the pair that he posted yesterday.
In the shot, Hailey wore Justin’s black thick-rimmed glasses while pulling a playfully pouty expression behind him.
The “Where Are Ü Now” singer and Topshop star were in town for the youth-oriented Vous Church Conference, held in Miami. The Canadian later posted clips of himself and Hailey with pals Pastor Carl Lentz and his wife Laura from Hillsong Church NYC, and Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr., who heads up Vous for Miami’s Trinity Church.
Before Justin jetted to Miami, he went to Hawaii with his mother, Pattie Mallette, five-year-old brother Jaxon, buddies, and family friends, based on footage at his Snapchat account.
But back to Hailey and Justin romance rumors. According to reports, after arriving in Miami on Sunday, the singer headed over to the South Beach hotel where Hailey was staying.
The two then went to the Mandarin Oriental hotel which Justin had booked into.
Snaps show the pair relaxing and chatting by a pool, taking selfies, hanging out with pals, singing to fans while jet-skiing (see the video below), and generally having a blast in the sun.
Later that day, Justin posted footage of himself in church with Hailey and Laura, before he shared a video of himself, Pastor Lentz, Laura and others lip-syncing to “This Is Living,” a song performed by the Hillsong Young & Free band.
So did the gossips have it right after all? Has Justin finally moved on from his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez with the elder daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin?
It’s difficult to tell. Clearly, the Biebs is a tactile guy who enjoys having female pals. While the grapevine is forever linking him to either model buddies Kendall Jenner and Hailey, the singer was spotted with Brit model Jayde Pierce last month.
Seeing as Justin is only 21 and has said he is single in multiple interviews, the rush to pair him off is a tad tedious.
