You knew this day would come, Jelena fans.
Sure, you may have been cautiously optimistic when you learned that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had gotten back together for the 47 bajillionth time, but on some level you suspected that eventually, the Biebs would get busted engaging in some hardcore canoodling with someone who is very much not Selena.
If you go way back through Justin’s relationship Rolodex (that’s a thing your great-grandparents used to store their contacts in), you’ll find the name Hailey Baldwin.
Justin and Hailey dated back in 2016.
It’s really not all that long ago, but Justin has had sex with approximately all the women in the two years since they split.
In recent months, of course, Justin briefly reconciled with Selena, while Hailey (allegedly) dated Shawn Mendes.
Now that those relationships have gone bust, it seems Justin and Hailey are once again hooking up.
(Justin and Selena may have split because Bieber was hooking up with Hailey, but more on that later.)
According to Us Weekly the Biebs and Baldwin enjoyed a weekend in Miami that began with a “rare, low-key night” at the W club in South Beach.
Witnesses say the probable couple was spotted “being very flirty and dancing on each other” while “holding hands.”
“Justin [put] his arm around Hailey throughout the night,” says one onlooker.
“[They] didn’t shy away from the crowd or onlookers.”
The next morning, Justin and Hailey were spotted enjoyed poolside, during which she was seen toweling him off.
That night, they enjoyed a romantic dinner at Casa Tua before going clubbing again, this time at exclusive hotspot LIV.
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Justin is rumored to have reached out to Hailey several months ago … while he was still dating Selena.
Naturally, a rep for Justin has been quick to claim that he got in touch with his ex solely “as a friend.”
“Justin reached out to Hailey. They didn’t talk on the phone and it wasn’t in person, just an exchange of texts,” the source exclusively tells Us.
“There is nothing going on between her and Justin. She’s not interested in Justin in the slightest and he’s not interested in her.”
Based on the sound of that denial, we’re about three days away from an official relationship announcement.
Guard your feelings, Hailey.
If history has taught us anything, it’s that Justin will break your heart and kick you to the curb with a text that includes the word “gurl.”
