Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner Have Dinner Together in NYC Amidst Selena Gomez Drama: Details
Nothing says "uh oh" like an upscale sushi dinner. Justin Bieber enjoyed a meal with Kendall Jenner and pal Hailey Baldwin at midtown Manhattan hotspot Nobu 57 on Monday, April 28, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
The three friends sat down for Japanese fare during a dinner that lasted nearly two hours, the insider tells Us. The trio noshed on a casual dinner of miso soup and sushi rolls, according to an onlooker. After the meal was over, Bieber cleared out first. Then Baldwin—the daughter of Stephen Baldwin and niece of NYC staple Alec Baldwin -- left with Jenner shortly after.
Bieber's dinner with Jenner is an interesting move to say the least: His on-and-off-again love Selena Gomez was entangled in a feud recently with Kendall and her younger sister Kylie Jenner. After hanging out with the reality stars at Coachella, Gomez, 21, abruptly unfollowed everyone—including Kendall, 18, Kylie, 16, and Bieber, 20—on Instagram for unconfirmed reasons. (In response, Bieber has since unfollowed Gomez on Instagram, but still remains friends with both Jenner sisters.)
A source tells Us Weekly in the May 12 issue that things "got messy" between the young stars. "Selena said the Jenner girls were flirting with Justin and his crew. She was pissed and overracted," one Bieber insider said. Another pal added, "They had an issue but they have cleared it up," further explaining to Us, "[Selena] has always liked the Jenner girls. They had been fans of Selena since they were young."
Despite his own share of drama, Bieber has been reveling in positivity since traveling to Manhattan last weekend. "Feeling happy and creative," the pop sensation wrote Monday. "A lot of great things coming." He later followed up and tweeted, "Some will hate…more will want to love. Letting the love in. Ignoring the hate. Keep it positive!"
Fans have certainly rushed to express their love for the "Boyfriend" crooner, too. Bieber shared photos Tuesday of himself, poking his head out the sunroof of a car, greeting screaming fans on the streets of NYC. "Love NYC," he said via Instagram, "love #mybeliebers."
