Hailey Bieber is finally putting rumors that pit her and Selena Gomez against each other to rest. It was recently announced that the model will appear on the Call Her Daddy podcast to address claims that she "stole" her now-husband Justin Bieber from Gomez.
“Were you ever with Justin romantically at the same time as [Gomez]?" the podcast's host Alex Cooper asks her in a preview clip posted to social media.
“This is so crazy. I’ve literally never talked about this ever,” Hailey said. "A lot of the perpetuation and the hate comes from ‘Oh, you stole him.’" She added, "It’s about people knowing the truth. Because there’s a truth," leaving the juiciest details for fans to hear when the episode drops on Wednesday, September 28th.
According to Page Six, Hailey has never discussed the drama surrounding her relationship with Justin but she has talked about how the "hate" affected her over the years. Gomez and Bieber parted ways in 2018 after years of on-and-off dating and just months before Justin proposed to Hailey, which got fans talking.
"Enough time has gone by,” she said in April. "I’m minding my business. I don’t do anything, I don’t say anything. Leave me alone, please. I beg of you. Truly. That’s my only request. Be miserable somewhere else, please.”
Selena gets her fair share of hate online because of her past relationship with Bieber as well. In May, the singer/actor had to apologize after fans accused her of throwing shade at Hailey during a skincare routine on TikTok. Selena simply posted her clip a few hours after Hailey posted her own skincare video prompting fans to assume Selena was making fun of the model. "Guys no idea what I did but I really am sorry. Zero bad intention. Deleting soon," she responded to the comments. "This is why I believe in taking care of your mental health."
