Meet the model! Justin Bieber has been spotted out multiple times with gal pal, Baskin Champion, leading fans to wonder who the blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty is.
Champion is a 22-year-old Alabama native who already boasts more than 287k followers on Instagram and is no stranger to the spotlight. She was most recently seen sweating it out with the 24-year-old singer at a SoulCycle class on Thursday, April 12.
Prior to that, the two were caught getting cozy at a Craig David concert where it was reported that they spent most of the night hanging out together in a VIP section. That outing came just two weeks after Bieber and Selena Gomez — who dated on and off from 2011 to 2014 before reuniting in November — pressed pause on their relationship. Us Weekly exclusively revealed that the reason their relationship came to a halt was “mainly because of Selena’s mom and her disapproval of Justin.”
