“Justin reached out to Hailey. They didn’t talk on the phone and it wasn’t in person, just an exchange of texts,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “Hailey is dating Shawn Mendes. There is nothing going on between her and Justin. She’s not interested in Justin in the slightest and he’s not interested in her.”
The source added: “They’ve both moved on. The messages were platonic, and friendly.”
However, it seems Gomez, 25, wasn’t as indifferent about the communication between Bieber and his ex, 21. A source confirms to Us that after Bieber told Gomez about his conversation with the model, the on-again duo decided to go to couple’s counseling – something that is making the “Wolves” singer’s inner circle feel concerned. “People around Selena are worried about her coupling with Justin and how much stress it could be on her,” adds the insider. “Especially if it’s so tumultuous.”
Bieber and Gomez reunited following her split from The Weeknd in October. Bieber previously dated Baldwin from the end of 2015 through early 2016, and even flaunted their New Year’s Eve trip to Anguilla on social media during that time period. Baldwin’s attention now, however, is on current beau Mendes, 19. “Hailey is really into Shawn and thinks he is the nicest, sweetest guy,” a second insider told Us in November. “They meet up whenever they’re in the same city, FaceTime a lot and text each other several times a day.”
In May 2016, Baldwin clarified rumors that she was feuding with Gomez over Bieber. “I think it sucks that people try to start things like that. There’s never any truth to that, first of all,” Baldwin told Us exclusively. “She’s a lovely girl. She’s very kind. Her and I have a lot of mutual friends and it’s all cool between everybody. We run in the same circles.”
