Justin Bieber may have had the “worst birthday” on Friday night, but he found someone to make the celebration a little better: British singer-model Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke.
According to U.K. newspaper The Mirror, the teen duo (she’s 17) first met months ago – while Bieber was still with Selena Gomez – in Los Angeles, where she was recording. But over the past few weeks, the pair has been spotted all over London, including at a Justin Timberlake concert following the Brit Awards in late February, as well as the “Beauty and the Beat” singer’s 19th birthday, which abruptly ended when his 14-year-old pal Jaden Smith was reportedly not allowed inside of a nightclub.
So, who is Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke? Besides having a super-long name, the beauty – who is denying a romance with Bieber – has a lot in common with him.
She’s a Singer, Too
Can we expect a duet soon? Clarke is a model-turned-aspiring singer. According to her Twitter page, she’s “married to the music” and her wallpaper shows her left hand with a musical note tattooed on her ring finger. Although she has yet to release an album, according to reports, she is currently working on her debut, which is how she first met Bieber in L.A. last fall.
She’s a Bieber Fan
Clarke has uploaded an original song, “A Thousand Stories,” a ballad which really shows off her impressive pipes onto her official YouTube page. But there’s another video that is more interesting: a cover of Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me” mashed up with Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” which she posted the day after celebrating his birthday on Friday. Was she sending a message?
strong>She Has a Bunch of Tattoos
We all know Bieber loves getting tattoos. After all, he’s debuted at least four in the past two months alone! And it seems his maybe-girlfriend does too. In addition to the musical note on her ring finger, the teen also has “fate” written in script behind her right ear, which she got in early January, and her newest, “promise,” on the outside of her right hand.
Beliebers Prefer Selena Gomez Over Her
Bieber’s fan base is a rabid one, as Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney found out after he said the teen didn’t deserve a Grammy … and now, the majority of those fans are out for poor Clarke. After reports surfaced of her possible romance with Bieber, many have tweeted their great dislike of her as his new girlfriend. The top retweeted post at the moment, “I'm not liking this whole Ella Paige Roberts Clark thing.....I prefer Selena,” which was tweeted by @BieberTeamNY. “She's under age & her personality must be amazing since I don't find her pretty at all,” added @JustinDimples. And another from @TeamJustinAus, “Ella-Paige girl you need to SWERVE.” In fact, some Bieber fans have been so mean, Clarke has reportedly had to block them on Twitter!
Yet another thing she has in common with Bieber! Just like the "Boyfriend" singer, Clarke also has a fondness for posting many, many pictures on Instagram of herself all glammed up in tons of makeup and tight, sometimes rather revealing, outfits. In fact, the majority of the teen’s photos would make the average person blush. One glance at her feed shows risqué outfits, the lower-half of her bikini-clad body, a marijuana-leaf adorned hat she wears often, and loads of photos of her proudly drinking alcohol (note: the legal age to drink in the U.K. is 18). The most uncomfortable perhaps? The shot she posted on January 13 of her leg covered in soap suds during a bubble bath … a little risqué for a 17-year-old, no?
Only time will tell whether or not Bieber and Clarke remain a “thing” -- or, if he’s just rebounding from Gomez! What do you think? Would they make a cute couple?
