Justin Bieber NOT “Cheating” On Selena Gomez Or Hailey Baldwin, Despite Reports
Justin Bieber is NOT “cheating” on Selena Gomez. And he’s NOT cheating on Hailey Baldwin, either. But if you read certain disreputable webloids, it’s easy to see why some may be confused. Allow Gossip Cop to clear the air.
Bieber and Gomez are not currently a couple. Bieber and Baldwin are not currently a couple. And Gomez and Baldwin aren’t either, for that matter. But anytime Bieber does anything with either woman, be it a social media interaction or a public hangout, it is automatically assumed by certain outlets that he is exclusively dating them.
But Gomez isn’t Bieber’s girlfriend, and she hasn’t been for a long time. And while he and Baldwin have spoken highly of each other in interviews, neither has confirmed an official, exclusive relationship. But sites like HollywoodLife and Celeb Dirty Laundry like to muddy the waters.
The former, for instance, has written story after story about a supposed love triangle, much of it outright made up. One recent piece claimed Gomez was enraged after finding out Bieber brought Baldwin to the iHeartRadio Music Awards as his “secret date.” In actuality, Baldwin was nearly 3,000 miles away in New York at the time.
Another example: On Tuesday, HollywoodLife said Gomez was “over” Bieber and all the “drama” with Baldwin. Yet on Wednesday, the site said they were “back in touch” and “can’t live without each other.” Huh? It’s also worth noting that both Gomez AND Baldwin have called out HollywoodLies for its falsehoods and outright sensationalism.
But CDL is guilty of it, too. In fact, on Wednesday, the site ran the ridiculous headline pictured above: “Hailey Baldwin Claims Justin Bieber Her Boyfriend: Disregards Blatant Cheating With Selena Gomez?” As some sort of proof, the outlet points to Baldwin’s new Marie Claire cover story… in which she absolutely does NOT call Bieber her “boyfriend.”
No matter, the webloid takes the model’s comments about being linked to him (statements that were actually given some time ago as magazine interviews are done significantly in advance of publication) and connects them to the singer’s “blatant cheating” with Gomez… on Instagram. This isn’t reporting. It’s pathetically grasping at straws to try to sell some convoluted fictional saga.
One last note: There is, of course, a third woman connected to Bieber… Kourtney Kardashian. And their on-and-off hookups don’t constitute as cheating on Gomez or Baldwin either. The superstar is single. He’s having fun. He is not officially dating anyone. But HollywoodLife, Celeb Dirty Laundry, and its ilk will continue spewing false stories that make it seem like one big scandal. Don’t belieb it.
