Baldwin, with our without her knowledge, most likely without, was set up in the tabloids as the foil for Justin’s and Selena Gomez’s faltering relationship.
None of that was true, however. Baldwin may be Justin’s latest arm candy, but they definitely are not dating, she revealed.
“I’ve known him since I was so young—since I was like 13—and we’ve just been good friends over the years,” she told E! News. We have just stayed close and there’s nothing more to it than that,” Hailey added.
Just like a couple of gal pals…. hmmmm.
Unfortunately, as soon as you kill one rumor another one springs up. And Haley didn’t do Bieber any favors regarding rumors that he is secretly gay.
Certainly all male singers and actors, as well, face that question sometime in their careers. Justin is just having a harder time than others over persistent rumors about his sexuality.
Sure, his looks are effeminate, the clothes he wears are definitely metrosexual and he’s infatuated with his buff mini-body. But that doesn’t mean a thing. What constantly pings on gaydar are the number of women who say Justin is just their “friend.”
Are the gossip sites to blame for linking Justin with any woman who comes within arm’s reach? Or, is he really gay?
So far this year, he’s been liked to singer Katherine Gazda, Kardashian clan member Kendall Jenner and model Shanina Shaik. All of them, it turns out, are just “friends.”
Then, there was the abortive romance with Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin. He flirted with her at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2012. He went out with her and friends to a Broadway show afterward.
Like the others, however, she put the kibosh on dating rumors.
Chantel Jeffries, the hot model who was was arrested with him in Miami and later traveled with Justin to Panama, claimed that she and Justin not only never slept together while away, but they also never even kissed.
“We’re friends. Do you kiss your friends?” she told E! correspondent Terrence Jenkins. “Do you sleep in the same bed as your friends?”
As it usually goes, the evidence is really circumstantial. But, once again, Justin did himself no favors by dying his hair blonde. So we leave it up to Justin. We just want him to know, it’s okay to come out. Just ask Ellen Page.
