Justin Bieber split from Selena Gomez years ago, following that breakup with on-and-off rumors that he was trying to rekindle their romance amid dating Hailey Baldwin. But now there are signs that Bieber is finally moving on, and while he is continuing his up-and-down relationship with Hailey, Justin was seen on a dinner date with Nicola Peltz on Wednesday, according to the Daily Mail.
The 21-year-old actress accompanied Bieber, 22, to Mastro’s Steakhouse in ritzy Beverly Hills, California. They also were both spotted at the Saint Laurent event at the Hollywood Palladium in February.
Whether it’s a romance that they have been trying to hide or a new relationship isn’t known, but both are accustomed to the spotlight resulting from fame. Nicola portrayed the daughter of Mark Wahlberg’s character in Transformers: Age of Extinction and co-starred in the A&E mystery drama Bates Motel.
However, Justin also was seen reuniting with Baldwin following a performance recently in New York. Rumors swirled that Hailey and Selena were even feuding over Bieber.
Baldwin denied those claims that she was involved in a feud with Gomez.
“I think it sucks that people try to start things like that. There’s never any truth to that,” declared Hailey. “She’s a lovely girl… [We] have a lot of mutual friends and it’s all cool between everybody.”
As for the details of her relationship with the 22-year-old “Sorry” singer, Baldwin said only that they are “not exclusive.”

With that revelation leaving room for Bieber to date other women, the restaurant to which he took his new girlfriend happens to be the hotspot where he and Selena used to go constantly, according to Hollywood Life.
In addition to choosing Selena’s favorite place, Justin attempted to protect Nicola from the ever-present paparazzi. When Bieber was dating Gomez, the couple even rented out Mastro’s so that they could have a privately intimate evening. It also was their chosen hotspot to dine before going to the movies together.
But as for the significance of choosing the same restaurant, Cosmopolitan cites a source revealing that Justin and Nicola are not yet involved in a real romance.

“They are not a couple, they just went on a date. Justin thinks she is really pretty, though,” admitted the source, clarifying, “Justin is single at this moment.”
If Peltz looks familiar, there’s a reason in addition to movies and TV. E! News reports that Nicola starred in Zayn Malik’s black-and-white music video for “It’s You” and revealed what an eyewitness noticed during her date with Bieber.
“Justin walked out of the car and opened the door for her like a gentleman and they got out and walked in. There were two security guards with them.”
In addition to dating a new woman, Bieber has been indulging in some rest and relaxation with his buddy Martin Garrix. Joined by videographer Rory Kramer, they visited the beach as well as a spa and luxury hotel. Bieber shared it all on Instagram.
“I had one of the best nights of my life last night,” he declared. “These are the nights I live for.”
And when it comes to luxury, Justin just rented a huge mansion in California, according to GQ.
His new $80,000-a-month rented mansion features 10 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms on the shores of Toluca Lake. In addition to the 13,000-square-foot main house, the rent pays for a guest house, a gym, a screening room, and a pool. His friend Rory Kramer shared a video showing a dive off the mansion’s roof and expressed his appreciation to Bieber.
But his friend isn’t the only one who appreciates the Biebs. At 6-months-old, Layla Potter may rank as his youngest fan.
The little girl adores Justin’s song “Love Yourself” so much that it’s the only way that her mother, Brittnay, Potter can get her daughter to stop crying, according to Refinery 29.
The baby’s mother shared the video on Facebook, sharing what an important role that song plays in their lives.
“Anyone who knows Layla, knows she has Bieber Fever! This song will quiet ANY tantrum she is having. Works like a charm every time! Thank you Bieber!!!!! #justinbieber #bieberfever.”
