Are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin having "marriage troubles" because of Selena Gomez? That's the sensational claim being made by one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop, however, investigated the report, and there's no truth to it.
According to Life & Style, nearly a year after Bieber and Baldwin wed in a New York City courthouse, the couple is struggling. A so-called "source" tells the publication, "Hailey thought her marriage to Justin would be different. They're young, rich, and famous and should be traveling the world on wild adventures." Instead, asserts the tipster, "Justin just can't get out of his slump some days, and Hailey often thinks it's because he's stuck on Selena Gomez."
And while the magazine notes how Bieber has said he's "heads over heels in love" with Baldwin, the outlet nevertheless contends his wife is "convinced" he's still enamored with his ex-girlfriend. The source adds, "Justin says his heart is Hailey's and, of course, she wants to believe that, but every time Selena comes up in conversation, he shuts down." "It's putting a major strain on their marriage," concludes the purported insider.
While much has been written about the two, the reality is Bieber and Baldwin are very much in love. In the past, Bieber has gushed on Instagram to Baldwin, "I fall more in love with you every day." And a little more than two weeks ago he also shared on the same social media platform, "You are mine and I am yours," along with the hashtag "#foreverandever." For her part, a little more than a week and a half ago, coinciding with the one-year anniversary of Bieber proposing to her, Baldwin wrote on Instagram, "I have never loved you more... My heart belongs to you forever."
Those are hardly the words of a couple having "marriage troubles." Nor are they the sentiments of a man who's "stuck" on his ex. Regardless, Gossip Cop reached out to a mutual pal of ours and Bieber, and we're told he and Baldwin are "very happy." Our impeccable insider says the young couple continues to be smitten with each other, and "Selena isn't a thought" to Baldwin and Bieber, who remain focused on one another.
Life & Style has not been entirely reliable with its claims about Baldwin, Bieber and Gomez. A couple of years ago, for instance, Gossip Cop busted the magazine when it wrongly maintained on its cover that Bieber was going to make Gomez a "pregnant bride." Not long after that, the outlet insisted Bieber and Gomez were engaged and going to "secretly marry" in early 2018. Of course, both of those tales were more tabloid fantasy than reality.
Nor has the publication gotten anymore accurate when it comes his relationship with Baldwin. Eight months ago, the same magazine incorrectly swore up and down that Bieber and Baldwin were headed for a divorce. That too was obviously untrue. The only one with actual "troubles" is the outlet, which keeps printing falsehoods from untrustworthy sources.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
