Are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin secretly back together?
According to a new report, Justin Bieber may have rekindled his relationship with the 19-year-old model, much to the dismay of his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, who was said to be excited about seeing her former boyfriend at the iHeartRadio Music Awards over the weekend.
“[Justin Bieber] tried to secretly bring Hailey as his date to the iHeartRadio Music Awards,” a source told Hollywood Life on April 6. “He’s decided to give things another go with her, and hid her backstage away from prying eyes because he didn’t want Selena to know.”
“However, [Selena] went backstage and saw [Justin Bieber] with Hailey and she was furious about the whole thing. That’s why she was so stand-offish with him that night,” the insider revealed.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have had an on-and-off relationship since late last year, and while they weren’t photographed together at the awards show, nor was Baldwin photographed at the event at all (she actually seemed to be in New York City at the time), there’s a good possibility that they may have rekindled their romance. After all, Baldwin recently spoke highly of Justin Bieber in an interview.

Just before Justin Bieber attended the iHeartRadio Music Awards, a report claimed his ex-girlfriend was excited to be reunited with her former love, and had no idea Hailey Baldwin could potentially have been his date.
“Selena hopes to see Justin at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. She always gets excited when she knows she’s going to see him. The sparks are always there despite time and distance,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “It’s a treat for her because both their schedules are so busy. If she can just spend some quality time with him after the show, that would be even better than a quick exchange backstage.”
However, as the first report revealed, Justin Bieber didn’t seem to have the same feelings towards Gomez, and according to a report by Entertainment Tonight, he completely ignored Gomez when he ran into her backstage. At the time, the outlet didn’t share details regarding why he did so, but if Baldwin was truly his secret date, it would make sense to think she was the cause.

Justin Bieber’s relationship with Baldwin has been complicated from the start. In December of last year, the two embarked on what appeared to be a couples getaway to Anguilla, where they enjoyed time with Justin Bieber’s family, and hung out with one another on the beach. During their trip, Justin Bieber made his feelings for Baldwin no secret and shared a ton of photo with fans, one of which featured him planting a kiss on Baldwin’s lips. Then, after the pair returned home, Justin Bieber and Baldwin were rumored to have split.
While Justin Bieber’s outings with Baldwin have been few and far between since they went public in January, they seem to always end up back together, and were most recently seen together at one of his concerts in Los Angeles. Baldwin has also been frequently spotted at one of Justin Bieber’s favorite hotspots in Los Angeles, The Nice Guy.
Earlier this week, after returning home to L.A. from New York City, where she purchased a corgi puppy, Baldwin was photographed showing off her midriff during an outing at The Nice Guy. However, there were no photographs of Justin Bieber at the venue that night, and he is not believed to have been there with Baldwin.
