Things are clearly getting serious between Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin.
Because the long-time friends were caught kissing while on vacation together in the Virgin Islands last week?
Yes, that is certainly the main reason.
But also because Bieber and Baldwin continue to spend time together and continue to make it clear just how much fun they have together.
Consider the photo above as the most recent case in point.
Bieber shared the image on Instagram yesterday, joking about his unusual hairstyle and blaming his rumored new girlfriend for why he has it.
"Hailey made me get corn rows like an absolute douche bag," Bieber wrote as a caption.
Two key things to note:
- Baldwin is touching Justin's head.
- Bieber referred to Baldwin simply as "Hailey," a somewhat intimate and personal gesture. He clearly assumes we all know who "Hailey" is at this point.
Added the artist of the cornrows:
“These will be off tomorrow trust me."
That's probably for the best.
Bieber and Baldwin have been pals for many years, often posing together on social media (below) and clearly getting along very well.
But Baldwin constantly denied any sort of romantic connection to the superstar, insisting over and over that she and Bieber were just "friends."
And that may have been true. Heck, it may still be true.
At the very least, however, Baldwin will need to add a word to this relationship description. They may be friends, but they are friends with BENEFITS.
If. You. Know. What. We. Mean.
