On May 2, Hollywood Life reported news of Selena Gomez’s possibly awkward run-in with the former couple, Bieber and Baldwin, who ironically haven’t been spotted together since Selena Gomez attended Bieber’s Los Angeles concert in March.
Earlier this year, it was Baldwin who had the attention of Bieber, but by March, he appeared to readjust his attention to Selena Gomez when he shared a throwback photo of the two of them kissing on Instagram. Days later, after he liked a Selena Gomez bikini photo on Instagram, and she showed her support for her ex-boyfriend by attending his show.
After attending the 2015 Met Gala in New York City, Selena Gomez was complimented by Bieber, who told TMZ she looked “gorgeous” as he left the event. Then, just a short time later, Selena Gomez and Bieber caught up with one another at a Met Gala after party, where a source told E! News the exes “exchanged some words” before Bieber was seen “dancing and having a great time with his friends.”

In January, after Bieber and Baldwin shared a number of lovey-dovey photos together on social media, a source claimed Selena Gomez had never liked the 19-year-old model.
“[Selena Gomez] is not surprised in the slightest that Justin and Hailey are hooking up. She feels like Hailey’s been after him for years and it was only a matter of time,” an insider told Hollywood Life in January. “Selena has never really liked or trusted Hailey. Whenever she and Justin had problems, it always seemed like Hailey would pop up. Selena felt like she couldn’t have an argument with Justin without worrying that Hailey would suddenly be by his side.”
Months later, another source told a much different tune as it was Baldwin who was upset by Bieber’s return to Selena Gomez.
“Hailey is in such a tough spot, she’s crazy about Justin and she would love to be the only woman in his life but she just can’t force him to commit. She’s always played it cool, or at least she tries to, but when he goes hot and cold on her like this it hurts her a lot more than she lets on. This whole thing with [Selena Gomez] is agonizing for her, she really believed that Justin had moved on,” a source told Hollywood Life in March.
In February, Bieber called it quits with Baldwin, reportedly because of his tour responsibilities. But, a short time later, he was linked to both Selena Gomez and Kourtney Kardashian. Meanwhile, Baldwin was said to be doing her best to stay focused on other things.
“Hailey isn’t going to sit around crying, she has a career that’s on fire and so many guys after her so she’s doing her best to focus on all the positive things in her life and accept the way things are,” the insider claimed. “She’s got a good head on her shoulders and at the end of the day, she knows what she has with Justin is very special, even if she’s not the only one.”
