However, that fledgling fling seemed to be short-lived, considering a source has confirmed to E! News that the model is, in fact, single.
The insider explained:
“Hailey is not dating anyone at this time, just hanging out with her friends and working.”
Noooooo! We were hoping the gorgeous guy had finally found love again!
However, we aren’t entirely surprised. The former flames played it coy when it came to defining their relationship, and the 19-year-old eventually admitted that she and the singer weren’t an exclusive couple.
Not to mention, the musician has been super busy and constantly on the move, now that his Purpose World Tour is officially underway.
In fact, the confidante confessed that that’s a huge reason why these two aren’t romantically involved at the moment, adding:
“Bieber and Hailey are still close friends, but he is on tour and extremely busy now, so they have not seen each other that much. Bieber and Hailey love each other but have a good understanding where they both stand at the moment.”
Well, at least they’re still besties! And who knows, when his tour wraps maybe the “close friends” can pick up right where they left off!
