Could Hailey Baldwin be moving on from Justin Bieber in light of his announcement that he had no plans to make things official with her? She may have. On Sunday night, 19-year-old Hailey Baldwin arrived at Elton John’s Oscars viewing party arm-in-arm with British Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton.
According to a report by the Daily Mail on February 29, Hailey Baldwin was seen flirting with rumored beau Hamilton at a number of different events last summer and fall, prior to going public with Bieber in late December, which makes their recent appearance all the more suspicious.

Hailey Baldwin appeared to be loving life with Bieber just weeks ago as the former pair rang in the Christmas and New Year’s holidays together on the island of Anguilla, where they posed for photos together, and separate, and rang in 2016 with a steamy kiss. However, when Hailey Baldwin got back to Los Angeles, things between her and Bieber appeared to be much different. Throughout the month of January, they were spotted together just a few times — and he was spotted with a few different females.
Then, at the beginning of the month, Bieber confirmed he and Hailey Baldwin were not in a committed relationship.
“I don’t want to put anyone in a position where they feel like I’m only theirs, only to be hurt in the end,” the 21-year-old told GQ. “Right now in my life, I don’t want to be held down by anything. I already have a lot that I have to commit to. A lot of responsibilities. I don’t want to feel like the girl I love is an added responsibility. I know that in the past I’ve hurt people and said things that I didn’t mean to make them happy in the moment. So now I’m just more so looking at the future, making sure I’m not damaging them.”
In response to Bieber’s interview, Hailey Baldwin spoke to E! News, echoing Bieber’s statements about their relationship but suggesting there was definitely something going on between them.
“We are not an exclusive couple. He’s about to go on tour,” Hailey Baldwin said. “Relationships at this age are already complicated, but I don’t really like to talk about it because it’s between me and him.”
“The thing is, I live a very public life and I have to keep things personal or else I have no personal life. It’s very difficult. I am very open on social media, but that’s why I don’t like to talk about certain things. It really is my personal business. And I like to think my relationships are not between me the person and the whole entire world. It’s hard,” Hailey Baldwin added. “I don’t think people are really able to understand if they’re not in that position.”
While it remains unknown whether Hailey Baldwin and Hamilton are an item, they sure looked the part last night, and judging by past photos of the pair, they are at the very least good friends.

Just prior to Hailey Baldwin’s public outing with Hamilton, she and Bieber reunited at a party in Bel Air, California, which was held for his upcoming 22nd birthday. However, their time together may not have been drama-free, as his other rumored on-and-off girlfriend, 36-year-old Kourtney Kardashian, was also in attendance, along with her younger sister Kylie Jenner.
Hailey Baldwin didn’t share any photos of herself during Bieber’s birthday party, but Kardashian did share a few.
