Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber’s are-they-or-aren’t-they relationship turned the world upside down, and we’re still unsure as to what their status actually is. But one thing’s for certain – the model doesn’t want to be known as ‘Bieber’s girlfriend’.


The 19-year-old has opened up about the relationship in the May issue of US Marie Claire – in particular, the global media attention that their dalliance brought.

‘I don’t want attention out of dating somebody,’ she says. ‘Texts started coming through, crazy phone calls… It’s hard to date somebody in this industry.’

Hailey received a monumental amount of hate from 22-year-old Justin’s fans when the two posted cosy snaps while on vacation together over the New Year, including one where they look to be sharing a passionate kiss.

‘You have to have really thick skin and be very strong,’ she says of the reaction. ‘You have to focus on the person and nothing else.’

The social media-savvy model previously discussed their pairing with E! News, saying, ‘we are not an exclusive couple’.

‘He’s about to go on tour,’ she explained. ‘Relationships at this age are already complicated, but I don’t really like to talk about it because it’s between me and him.’

So for now, we’re not much closer to finding out what’s really going on between the two – sorry, Jailey shippers.
