The internet was thrown into a frenzy when the photos of Hailey and Selena clasping each other surfaced. This rare moment is the first time both celebrities ever put up a public show of affection or posed together. With fans pulling hard at the strings due to their relationship with Justin Bieber, it appears the duo wanted to make a subtle statement to assuage speculations.
The two were pictured posing together at the Academy Museum Gala on Saturday last week.
In a generally amicable mode, multiple pictures of their embrace that night depicted the two on very friendly terms.
As known, Selena Gomez dated the global Superstar Justin Bieber on-off for about 10 years. However, when Hailey and Justin wedded in September 2018, wide rumors that Hailey snatched Selena’s man gained strong momentum.
Nonetheless, Hailey Bieber, in an interview with Call Her Daddy, revealed that there was no love lost between them. She further revealed that she had private discussions with Selena Gomez even after her marriage with Justin.
“So that’s why I’m like, it’s all respect, it’s all love. It’s also why I feel like if everybody on our side knows what happened, and we’re good, and we could walk away with clarity and respect, then that’s fine. Which had brought me a lot of peace, and I’m like, ‘hey, we know what happened. It is what it is.’ You’re never going to be able to correct every narrative, and there’s going to be new ones that come [from this interview]. It’s never going to end, and that’s why I get to the point where like, that’s why I didn’t speak about a lot of this stuff because I’m like, there will be something new,” she said.
