Somewhere in between the Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber relationships Bieber and Hailey Baldwin also shared some lovey-dovey times. After they went their separate ways, however, the friendship they had took a brief pause. Good thing now all that post-split “weirdness” is over.

In a latest interview with The Times, Hailey Baldwin revealed, “I met him when I was really young, and he was one of my best friends. Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you’re 18, 19. It was what it was.”

Then she told the publication how once their brief love affair was behind them their friendship also left with it. “We went through a long period of time when we weren’t friends,” said the 21-year-old.

She continued to say that while they “didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on” they have now “moved past that.” Is not that refreshing to know? However, currently Baldwin is single. People thought that perhaps she was with Shawn Mendes as she appeared with him at the Met Gala. But both the stars have clearly proved that idea to be false.

The Drop The Mic host said about the Stitches singer, “We hang out and he’s super-lovely and a very, very nice young gentleman. But I am single.” In the past while talking about Baldwin, Bieber said that he didn’t want to hurt her as he might end up marrying her one day. But it is obvious that these feelings are not mutual or have changed for both.

Hailey Baldwin explained that her and the Never Say Never singer “just work much better as friends.” Whereas, Shawn also said that he and Hailey were just friends in a recent interview with People. Looks like the friendzone game is strong here.
