Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were one of Hollywood’s power couples as A-list celebrity teens. They had a topsy-turvy relationship, but always seemed to get back together. But when they finally broke up in 2016 and Hailey Baldwin entered the picture, some fans wondered why they couldn’t make it work this time. It turns out, they were both ready to move on and get married.
But the rumors of drama, alleged feuds, and cheating accusations didn’t die down. Hailey even slammed the “haters” in a viral interview with Call Her Daddy. She defended herself against fans who compared her to Gomez (and her cousin, Ireland Baldwin) by sharing a TikTok video of herself doing her skincare routine. Hailey’s rebuttal shut down the speculation, but many people have been wondering why exactly Justin married Hailey and not Selena.
In the Call Her Daddy interview, Hailey addressed why she married Justin without Selena in the picture. She explains that it’s not because she was trying to take her place or steal him from her ex-girlfriend, but because she realizes that marriage isn’t for everyone.
But is this a valid reason to marry someone? Ultimately, it’s up to each individual to decide what is best for themselves and their career. But Hailey’s reasoning definitely sounds genuine and sincere. Hopefully, that puts the rumors to rest once and for all.
