Justin Bieber and model Hailey Baldwin dated briefly in 2015. With the amount of on-and-off Hollywood couples, their relationship seemed like a blink of an eye and before we knew it, Justin and Selena Gomez rekindled for a hot minute and Hailey moved on to Shawn Mendes. In a recent interview with the Hailey, the 21-year-old opened up about her time with the Biebs saying they are finally good now.
“Justin and I were friends for a long time,” Hailey told The Times. “I met him when I was really young and he was one of my best friends. Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you’re 18, 19. It was what it was. We went through a long period of time when we weren’t friends. We didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on. We’ve moved past that.”
“I’d never been through [a high-profile relationship] like that,” she added. “But it brought both of us to the realization that we just work much better as friends. He’s somebody I really cherish. Now it’s a very mature situation. It’s good.”
The duo kind of have to be on terms as they run in the same social circles. Thankfully they’re grown enough to have handled their public love in a mature way.
