Justin Bieber’s love rivals seem to reunite! Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber recently sent the internet into a frenzy as they posed for a photo together at the Academy Museum’s second annual gala at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
Just two weeks after Hailey publicly denied stealing her husband Justin Bieber from Selena, the duo looked closer than ever as they smiled for the photo during the star-studded event. Photographer Tyrell Hampton captures the moment and shared it on his social media. In the photo, Hailey sat straight in her chair and Gomez had one of her arms gently wrapped around the model’s leg as she kneeled by her side.
Other snaps showed them standing up and hugging. Gomez made it clear at the star-studded event that she holds no resentment toward her ex-boyfriend’s wife by warmly embracing her. For the unversed, Hailey and Selena had a rough relationship for years, however, they looked cheerful as they talked and shut down any speculation of drama between them.
The duo’s sighting together comes just a few days after Hailey set the record straight about the timeline of her and Justin’s relationship after years of fan-driven speculation that she ‘stole’ him from Gomez. During her appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast last month, the Rhode founder insisted to host Alexis Cooper that Justin had not cheated on Gomez with her.
She shared that she and Justin began ‘hooking up’ after he’d already split from his former on/off girlfriend in early 2018. Justin and Hailey, who’d had a previous fling in 2016, rekindled their flame in mid-2018. They were engaged by July, two months after his breakup with Selena, and tied the knot two months later. Justin and Selena dated on/off for nearly a decade, and fans of both singers felt emotionally invested in their highly-publicized ‘Jelena’ romance.
Resulting when they called it quits and he moved on with Hailey, she became the main target of online backlash and fan conspiracies. Selena and Justin began dating in 2010. The former Disney star was about 18 at the time, and Justin was about 16. The couple’s first big break happened in 2012 and was followed by a series of patch-ups and breakups until 2018. Justin and Selena were last seen together in March of that year.
