Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have been the subject of a lot of rumors of late, with many media outlets wondering if the long-time friends have taken their relationship to a different level. However, in a recent interview tin E! News, the model revealed that they are still no more than friends.
Baldwin told E! at the Exodus premiere in New York City Sunday that the duo have known each other for a long time, but romance has never been a part of their relationship.
The rumors stem from an increase of photos on social media of the BFFs. Last week, Baldwin and Bieber were seen having lunch at Spago in Beverly Hills and sitting courtside at an L.A. Clippers game. The young celebrities were also photographed shopping at Target in L.A. before heading to the arcade to play some games at Family Amusement Corporation.
“I’ve known him since I was so young—since I was like 13—and we’ve just been good friends over the years,” Baldwin explained. “We have just stayed close and there’s nothing more to it than that.”
As for Baldwin, she really seems to have little time for romance with the amount of modeling work she’s been doing.
“The cool thing is Hailey has mostly generated all of her own momentum,” said her dad, Stephen Baldwin, about her career.
