Hollywood relationships are sometimes fast-paced, unpredictable and hard to understand. One such relationship that some fans found strange is that between Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, who finally tied the knot after being in an on-again, off-again status for quite some time.

Hailey Baldwin Used To Root For Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez

One of the unusual things about their relationship is that Baldwin used to be a big fan of Bieber and Gomez’s tandem. “I don't care what anyone says but Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez together is the definition of a teenage dream! #word,” she tweeted back in September 2011.

“She is beyond flawless and he's ya know he's Bieber,” she likewise tweeted in January 2012. “They are the perfect relationship.”

Bieber Didn’t Want To Be Tied Down At First

The fact that they already married is a pleasant surprise for fans because Bieber once explicitly stated that he didn’t want to be tied down by Baldwin. In a 2016 interview with GQ, the singer said that he was not really into a relationship with Baldwin — they’re just friends who kiss.

“I don't want to put anyone in a position where they feel like I'm only theirs, only to be hurt in the end. Right now in my life, I don't want to be held down by anything,” Bieber told the magazine.

”I already have a lot that I have to commit to. A lot of responsibilities. I don't want to feel like the girl I love is an added responsibility,” he added.

But he explained his refusal not to get serious quite nicely and said that it’s for Baldwin’s sake. However, many people probably feel that he’s just not ready for a commitment at that time, given that he’s still young.

“I know that in the past I've hurt people and said things that I didn't mean to make them happy in the moment,” the singer explained. “So now I'm just more so looking at the future, making sure I'm not damaging them. What if Hailey ends up being the girl I'm gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it's always gonna be damaged.”

Even Baldwin Once Thought They’re Relationship Is A Bit Weird

Baldwin revealed that there was a time when they weren’t speaking to each other. “We went through a long period of time when we weren't friends,” Baldwin said. “We didn't speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on. We've moved past that.”

But somehow they’re relationship eventually evolved into something deeper than friendship but short of being exclusively dating. “We are not an exclusive couple,” she told E! News in 2016.

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

They Reportedly Hooked Up With Each Other’s Friends

Perhaps as evidence of their once open relationship, they even hooked up with each other’s pals. For instance, Bieber reportedly hooked up with Baldwin’s friend Kourtney Kardashian in December 2015, according to Nicki Swift.

Similarly, Baldwin reportedly hooked up with Drake. Being a fellow Canadian, the rapper, singer and songwriter is also Bieber’s casual friend.

Baldwin Was Pretty Close To Shawn Mendes Before Her Engagement To Bieber

Mendes and Baldwin walked the red carpet together during the 2018 Met Gala. Naturally, it got people curious, and tongues started wagging about how the two might be in a secret relationship. Previously they were also spotted holding hands at a Halloween party in 2017, which further fueled speculations.

However, by June 2018, Baldwin’s Instagram account was already Mendes-free. There were even speculations that Baldwin might be on Mendes’ mind when he penned the song “If I Can’t Have You.”

They Have Over-The-Top PDAs

After they got engaged, Bieber made a post on Instagram that some people found to have a little too much PDA. They were pictured in a bathtub making out with her hands on Bieber’s waist and his hands on Baldwin’s neck.

Even John Mayer commented on the post. “Interesting dynamic with the photographer in the hot tub,” the singer wrote. “That's gotta feel super third wheel. I see a lot of myself in this hot tub photographer. Imagine being in a hot tub on business.”
