Many fans became heartbroken when romance speculations started between Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin. However, Baldwin has recently revealed that her relationship with the singer was not as simple as what others would think.

Rumors of Baldwin as Bieber’s girlfriend began after the two were seen hanging out and being very affectionate with each other during the December holidays. Previous reports indicated that Baldwin and Bieber were long-time friends and that they have known each other since 2009. However, the model’s recent interview with E! News during the annual gala of the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) held in New York on Tuesday has shed more light about their relationship.

Baldwin has revealed that she and Bieber were “not an exclusive couple,” before adding that relationships are complicated. She explained that the singer is about to embark on a tour and that she does not enjoy talking about their relationship since it should be between herself and the “Sorry” crooner.

Apart from setting the record straight on her romance with Bieber, Baldwin also commented on the singer’s recent GQ magazine interview where he said that the model was someone that he really loves. She described Bieber’s pronouncement as “awesome” and admitted that she knew about the singer’s magazine interview. “It wasn't a surprise to me. I knew it was coming out,” Baldwin stated.

She also shared her views on dating under the Hollywood spotlight and mentioned that it was “very difficult” to keep things personal since she lives a very public life. Baldwin even stated that she has been very open about her life on social media, however, there were certain aspects that she would want to keep to herself. 

“It really is my personal business. And I like to think my relationships are not between me the person and the whole entire world,” she commented.

Meanwhile, she spoke highly of Bieber during her interview with Entertainment Tonight at the same event. She described the singer as a “really funny” and “really sweet” guy. “We have a good time together … He has a good heart and I love him,” she added.

When asked about her plans for Valentine’s Day, Baldwin stated that she was not expecting anything grand and shared that she would “just want food.”
