Hailey Bieber Addresses Claims She ‘Stole’ Justin Bieber From Selena Gomez

Hailey Bieber is finally speaking out on accusations that she “stole” Justin Bieber from Selena Gomez. While the Biebers recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary and Justin Bieber broke up with Gomez back in 2018, fans are still obsessed with demonizing Hailey Bieber for allegedly being some kind of homewrecker. This week, while appearing on the Call Me Daddy podcast, Hailey Bieber finally decided to tell her side.

  1. The flurry of attention around Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber was insane. Most of their fans, young teenagers obsessed with the love story between their idols, believed that the pair would be together forever. When that didn’t happen, they naturally lashed out at the woman who came next in Justin Bieber’s life: in this case, Hailey Baldwin. It was this very topic that Call Me Daddy host Alex Cooper wanted to delve into.
  2. Was there an overlap in relationships? Cooper doesn’t pull any punches in a preview of the upcoming interview posted on September 26. “People were obsessed with [Justin and Selena] being together,” she said. “Were you ever with Justin romantically at the same time as her?” Talk about going straight for the jugular!
  3. Hailey Bieber wants people to know the truth. It’s crazy to think that she’s never discussed the situation after all these years and despite how much hatred she’s received from #Jelena fans, but here we are. “This is so crazy I’ve literally never talked about this ever. A lot of the hate and perpetuation comes from like, ‘Oh you stole him.’ It’s about people knowing the truth, because there’s a truth,” Bieber says.
  4. Okay, so what’s the truth?! A big no. Hailey Bieber denies ever being romantically involved with Justin while he and Selena were still together, though she understands given the timeline why so many people had questions. However, she insists not all is what it seemed. “When him and I started hanging out, like. Okay, let’s just put it this way. When him and I ever started hooking up or anything of that sort, he was not ever in a relationship. Ever. At any point. I would never,” Hailey said. “It’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship. I would just never do that. I was raised better than that. I’m not interested in doing that and I never was.”
  5. She does admit that things were a bit messy for a while. Hailey went on to say that while she’d “been involved with [Justin] since I was 18” and that there was a lot of “back and forth” between Justin and Selena, she can say with confidence that the two relationships never overlapped. “I can say period, point blank, that I was never with him when he was in a relationship with somebody. That’s the end of it,” she said. “The timeline also that I think is in question of us getting together and getting engaged and him having spent time with his ex before that is so crazy. … I understand again how it looks from the outside and there’s a lot of perception there, but that was a situation where I know for a fact that it was the right thing for them to close that door.”
  6. Hailey believes that Selena and Justin broke up at the right time as their relationship truly was over. “Of course there’s a very long history there and it’s not my relationship. It has nothing to do with me. So I respect that a lot but I know that it closed a chapter and I think it was the best thing that could have happened for him to move on,” she told Cooper. “It’s hard for me to talk about this because I don’t want to talk on either of their behalves again because it was their relationship and I honestly respect that very deeply, but I just know what was going on when we got back together. And I know what had to happen for that to come back together in a healthy way. And I think it was the most healthy, mature decision that he could have made and I respect that as a woman. I would never want to get into a relationship with someone and be engaged to them and be getting married to them and be thinking in the back of my mind.” There you have it. Can we please leave this topic alone now?
