Rumours of an on-again romance between Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have been swirling, and recent (PDA-heavy) sightings in Brooklyn and New York City have only added fuel to the fire. According to TMZ, the pair was spotted kissing in Brooklyn’s Domino Park Saturday, and again later at Rockefeller Park in NYC.
In photos taken of the exes, Bieber has his arms wrapped around Baldwin as they smooch, and in another, Baldwin is sitting on Bieber’s lap on a park bench.
The PDA-packed weekend in NYC comes after the pair spent the previous weekend in Miami. TMZ reports that while there, they attended a church conference together, went for dinner at Casa Tua, then showed up at Fontainebleau’s LIV Nightclub at around 1 a.m., where they “held hands and danced together” until they left (you guessed it—together) around 3 a.m.
Bieber and Baldwin first met back in 2014, while Baldwin was still in her teens. In an interview with the Sunday Times, the model said she met him when she was “really young” and he was one of her “best friends.” What began as a close friendship turned into something more, but the pair later broke it off and closed down communication lines.
Baldwin said that they “didn’t speak for quite some time” and that “there was a lot of weirdness that went on.” In the same interview, however, Baldwin said she and Bieber have since moved beyond this stage, and they now have a more “mature” friendship.
The “weirdness” Baldwin mentioned could be referring to that time back in December 2017 when Bieber tried to make amends with her, much to the dismay of his longtime on-again-off-again girlfriend, Selena Gomez. TMZ reports that Gomez wasn’t enthused by Bieber’s attempt at reconciliation with Baldwin, and the pair had attended couples therapy shortly thereafter, only to break up again a few months later.
While it remains to be seen whether or not Baldwin and Bieber are official once more, it seems safe to say that the pair looked a little too cozy over the weekend to be “just friends.”
