Stephen Baldwin Denies Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin Are Dating

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin were looking very coupled up just two weeks ago while vacationing together in St. Barts. Justin and Hailey have a history together and have dealt with dating rumors before. Hailey’s dad, Stephen Baldwin, said they aren’t dating when TMZ cameras caught up with him at LAX and asked if he approved of Bieber.

It certainly didn’t look like Justin and Hailey were just friends in a series of photos posted on both of their Instagram accounts in recent weeks. During their vacation in St. Barts, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin shared several pictures together. One in particular showed Justin and Hailey kissing in what looks like a very passionate embrace. So, if Justin and Hailey aren’t dating, as Stephen Baldwin says, then what is the real status of their relationship?

Stephen says Hailey and Justin are just great friends. It is true that Bieber and Baldwin have been hanging out for years and their families spend time together. That doesn’t explain all the rumors surrounding Justin and Hailey, plus the fact that they flaunt their flirting every time they are together. If Justin and Hailey are just friends, then why does the famous couple hang all over each other and post photos of themselves making out?

When Stephen Baldwin was asked if he approved of Justin Bieber dating his daughter Hailey Baldwin, Stephen replied, “Absolutely.” It seems that Stephen is a huge fan of the Biebs and would not be against a real romance between Justin and Hailey. Baldwin was quick to tell the TMZ cameras that Justin and Hailey aren’t an item and that they really are just friends. Stephen has to know something is up between Hailey and Justin, though, doesn’t he? According to Stephen, he explained, “there’s no label on it” when asked about the pair’s high profile hangouts.

“Mr. Bieber is a wonderful young man, hugely talented, got a whole lot more success ahead of him,” Stephen Baldwin told TMZ. When asked if Justin would have to ask for permission to marry Hailey, Stephen Baldwin broke out in a fit of giggles. “We’re far away from that,” Baldwin added, barely able to contain his laughter.

If Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are just friends, that makes fans wonder what they were doing coupled up on that St. Barts trip over New Year’s. Hailey and Justin posted picture after picture of themselves and the tropical vacation looked way more romantic than friendly trip.

The entire Justin and Hailey hookup shook up fans, who have been rallying for the Biebs to get back together with Selena Gomez. Justin was spotted spending time with Selena just weeks before his vacation with Hailey. It was then that Justin was seen with Selena in a Beverly Hills hotel, where he serenaded Selena with two songs. Bieber sang his hit single, “Sorry,” as well as a special song, “My Girl.” Afterwards, Justin and Selena were even seen walking outside together and they seemed to be very chummy.

Just after Justin was spotted with Selena, it was learned that Bieber had been hooking up with another famous face. Bieber, allegedly, had been keeping a fling with Kourtney Kardashian a secret for months. When asked about the Kardashian hookup in an interview, Justin recently joked that he was being “used” by the 36-year old reality star.

If Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin aren’t an item, is it because he has so many options? It seems like everyone wants a piece of Bieber lately. Based on body language alone, it’s likely a safe bet that Hailey Baldwin would happily be exclusive with Justin Bieber. If only the “Sorry” singer was willing to settle down, maybe Stephen Baldwin wouldn’t be laughing so hard when asked about a possible marriage proposal between Justin Bieber and his daughter, Hailey Baldwin.
