Rumors, statements, and news about Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez‘s respective relationships with Justin Bieber are once again making the rounds. Hailey Bieber recently appeared on Alex Cooper’s Call Her Daddy podcast where she addressed being labeled a “home wrecker,” and the speculations that her relationship with Justin Bieber overlapped with that of him and Selena Gomez.
Shooting down those rumors, Hailey Bieber said, “When him and I ever started like hooking up or like 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 would just never do that.” She went on to add that she knows “how it looks 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. They were not in a relationship at that time, but of course there’s a very long history there and it’s not my relationship.”

While Gomez has not responded directly to the statements made in the podcast, she addressed her fans and followers by going live on TikTok, and stressed the importance of kindness. “It’s incredibly ironic that I would release something that’s all about kind words ’cause that’s exactly what I want,” said the mental health advocate. “It’s not fair because no one should ever be spoken to in the manner that I’ve seen. If you support Rare [Impact Fund and Beauty], I cannot thank you enough,” the singer went on, “but know that you are also representing what it means, and that is: Words matter, truly matter.”
