A fake story in one of the tabloids says Hailey Baldwin is putting off her wedding to Justin Bieber due to trust issues. Gossip Cop looked into the claim. It’s wholly false.
The latest issue of Star published the piece titled, “Hailey: Dragging Her Feet On Wedding Over Trust Issues.” It alleges that Baldwin has been delaying her nuptials with Bieber. Although the two are technically already married, they didn’t have a wedding or religious ceremony.
“Justin and Hailey planned on having a big ‘dream wedding’ after their courthouse nuptials,” says a supposed source, “but it kept getting pushed back.” The couple got engaged in July 2018. They quietly received a marriage license that September.
“Hailey and Justin have a lot of deep-seated issues,” adds the magazine’s supposed insider. “Justin is very needy and has a lot of baggage from his tumultuous relationship with Selena. They were on and off in the past, so there are trust issues lingering in their relationship.” The outlet is referring to fellow pop star Selena Gomez, with whom Bieber did indeed share an on-and-off relationship intermittently in the years between 2010 and 2018.
“They want to have a strong foundation before they say their vows in front of God and their families,” says the source. “They have more work to do because they’re not there yet. Who knows if they’ll ever have the wedding?”
This claim comes on the heels of the leak of what appears to be the couple’s wedding invitations. TMZ received photos of the invitation from one of Bieber or Baldwin’s guests. The wedding is apparently slated to take place in September in South Carolina, which certainly counters Star‘s claims about Baldwin’s uncertainty. Although Gossip Cop is working on confirming the authenticity of these invitations, we can confirm that the tabloid’s story is untrue.
What is the publication’s big tipoff that there are “trust issues” between the two? Simply that Baldwin accidentally commented on a post from Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, before realizing she was logged into Bieber’s account and not her own. It’s an easy mistake to make when you live together and share a lot of the same devices, especially when you’re part of a celebrity couple that may need to use each other’s social media for publicity reasons.
The weirdest part of this story is the fact that it refers to Bieber and Baldwin’s marriage as though it didn’t happen or count. If Baldwin was truly uncertain about Bieber’s commitment, why would she sign the marriage license? If she was worried about their foundation, why would she change her name to Hailey Bieber? The tabloid’s article makes no sense.
The Bieber-Baldwin marriage is a common target for bad information. Just last week, fans mistook Bieber’s casual visit to a dance studio as a sign of an upcoming ceremony. Don’t even get us started on the amount of “Hailey Baldwin is pregnant with Justin Bieber’s baby!” stories that Gossip Cop has debunked. We’ll keep busting these phony stories.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
