The Rhode Beauty founder got engaged to Justin in July 2018 and the pair tied the knot in September 2019.
Their engagement shocked fans as the relationship began just six months after Justin and Gomez’ breakup.
In February 2018, Selena attended Justin’s father, Jeremy’s wedding in Jamaica. Gomez appeared to confirm their romance back on in March 2018, when she dedicated an Instagram post to Justin for his birthday.
In a recent appearance on the ”Call Me Daddy” podcast on Wednesday 28th September, Hailey said she ”understands” why the internet was not happy about her engagement to Justin. However, there was no crossover between the two relationships.
Hailey Bieber also denied being ”Romantically involved” with Justin Bieber during any point of his relationship with Selena Gomez.
The model and influencer also claimed that ending his relationship with Gomez ”was the most healthy, mature decision he could make”.
Hailey clarified “When he and I ever started hooking up or anything of that sort, he was not ever in a relationship, ever, at any point”.
“It’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship. I never would do that. I was raised better than that. I’m not interested in doing that and I never was.”
Speaking on the nature of breakups, Hailey further said that she understands there is sometimes ”back and forth with someone”. Justin and Gomez’s case was different, however.
” I can say period point blank I was never with him when he was in a relationship with anybody, that’s the end of it.”
While addressing the internet’s reaction on her engagement , Hailey said she had been ”involved with Justin since she was 18”.
“I understand how it looked 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,” she said, referring to her husband and Gomez.
“They were not in a relationship at that time but of course, there’s a very long history there.”
Hailey said her engagement to Justin ”closed a chapter” between him and Gomez.
“I think it was the best thing that could have happened for him, to move on and be engaged and get married and move on with his life in that way,” Hailey said.
“It was the most healthy, mature decision that he could have made.”
