Selena Gomez Did NOT “Catch” Justin Bieber With Hailey Baldwin At iHeartRadio Music Awards, Despite Report
And not surprisingly, HollywoodLife is the source. In a new piece, the disreputable webloid says Bieber and Gomez were “so stand-offish to each other” and “actively snubbing one another” at last Sunday’s awards show because “the Biebs brought Hailey Baldwin as his secret date, and Selly was fuming about it!” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Justin tried to secretly bring Hailey as his date to the iHeartRadio Music Awards.”
“He’s decided to give things another go with her, and hid her backstage away from prying eyes because he didn’t want Selena to know,” claims the supposed snitch. But the site goes on to say the “sneaky” move “backfire[d]” on Bieber. Its tipster alleges, “[Gomez] went backstage and saw Justin with Hailey and she was furious about the whole thing. That’s why she was so stand-offish with him that night.”
Presumably, HollywoodLife thinks it can get away without having proof of Baldwin’s attendance at the Los Angeles event by simply saying she was hidden backstage. In actuality, there’s photo proof of something else. The model was about 3,000 miles away in New York, as photos taken of her by paparazzi and friends show.
Baldwin wasn’t at the iHeartRadio Music Awards with Bieber. She wasn’t even in the same state as him. That makes it pretty impossible for Gomez to have “caught” her backstage with Bieber. And that’s why HollywoodLife is nicknamed “HollywoodLies.”
