In a podcast session, Hailey Bieber finally responds to allegations that she stole her husband, Justin Bieber, from Selena Gomez.
Before getting married to Hailey, Justin Bieber was initially in a relationship with his colleague, Selena Gomez. The couple was among the most talked about celebrity couples in 2010.
Following their on-and-off relationship in 2014, the two singers finally called it quit in 2018. Just after breaking up, it didn't take long for Bieber to get married to Hailey on September 2018.
Because of how swift and the nature of events, fans and critics soon began to accuse Hailey of stealing Justin Bieber from Selena Gomez.
What Hailey Bieber Said in the Podcast
Hailey Bieber was a guest on a podcast Call Her Daddy. The podcast host asked Hailey a series of questions concerning her relationship with Justin Bieber.
On the podcast, host Alex Cooper asked Hailey the million-dollar question.
"Your husband was in a very public relationship with Selena Gomez. People were so obsessed with them being together. Were you ever with Justin Bieber romantically, at the same time with Selena Gomez?" Alex Cooper asked.
Responding to the question, Hailey Bieber said that she had not been asked such a question. However, she insisted that there was some truth surrounding what happened in the past.
" It's about people knowing the truth. Because there is a truth," she said.
The part of the podcast released to the public was just the teaser, and the whole interview will be released on the 28th of September, 2022.
Hailey and Justin Bieber's Relationship
The speculation that Justin Bieber was with Hailey at some point could be confirmed as the couple didn't meet in 2018.
It has been reported that Hailey's dad had introduced the couple to each other as far back as 2009.
However, nothing was noticed between the two until 2016, when a rumor broke out that the model and singer might be seeing each other.
Justin Bieber added vigor to the rumors when he shared a photo in 2016, locking lips with Hailey.
In an interview with GQ, Justin Bieber said that he had, in fact, contemplated going into a relationship with Hailey at that time.
So many events unfolded, ending with Justin Bieber breaking up with Selena Gomez and marrying Hailey, now Mrs. Bieber.
Fans' reaction to the marriage between Hailey and Justin Bieber has been hateful.
Many who dislike the relationship between the two have made it clear that the model "stole" Justin Bieber from Selena Gomez.
The teaser of the podcast was seen as insensitive and unnecessary. Others saw the podcast as a way of laundering their reputation before Selena Gomez released her upcoming documentary.
Sam Wieder, Editor at Buzzfeed, said in a tweet that "Selena is literally just living her life and thriving, why is this happening and who cares, especially after all these years."
