Selena Gomez doesn't care about Bieber's engagement to Hailey Baldwin, believes it is a stunt to make her jealous
After his whirlwind romance with pop-star Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber finally seems to have decided to settle down with Hailey Baldwin and it looks like Selena could care less
Pop sensation Justin Bieber is reportedly engaged to model Hailey Baldwin, daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, after the singer popped the question to her on Saturday at a resort in the Bahamas. However, it looks like Bieber's former girlfriend, pop-singer Selena Gomez couldn't have cared less about his engagement. In fact, Selena was trending on social media over the weekend while she was resting on her yacht with her friends.
The 25-year-old pop star was seen spending a carefree Sunday with her pals on a boat cruise around New York City. In one of the videos posted on Twitter, Selena can be heard screaming out while her friends take a dive in the Hudson River. In another, she is seen flaunting her figure in a blue and white bikini while setting a book down on a table as the yacht crosses the Statue of Liberty.
According to US Magazine, Selena considers Bieber's public proposal to Hailey just another of his stunts make his ex-girlfriend jealous. The report quotes a source saying, "Anytime he has done this in the past, Selena doesn’t even see stories about him in the media... Her team makes sure she is protected from it, so it’s a waste of time on Bieber’s end if that’s his goal. No one in her circle speaks about him when they are on the outs and she keeps her circle and team very small.”
The two pop-stars were first seen together as a couple at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party in February 2011. During their relationship, rumors followed that Bieber was the father of a child with a fan, Mariah Yeater, although paternity tests subsequently debunked Yeater's claims. After receiving a lot of attention for their never-ending PDA, the couple called it quits in November 2012 but were seen together grabbing dinner within a few days of the news.
However, Selena confessed on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' that she and her boyfriend were no longer together; Bieber, on the other hand, told radio host Big Boy that although they were no longer a couple, he still cared for her.
In 2014, during Bieber's legal deposition for assaulting a paparazzi, the duo reportedly got back together. Unfortunately, the reunion was soon to come to an end. In the same year, in November, Selena confirmed their break up when she released her single 'The Heart Wants What It Wants' which she apparently revealed to Ryan Seacrest was about Bieber. Although Bieber and Selena have parted ways, People quoted a source saying that the 'Baby' singer was still in love with his ex.
Back to Bieber's proposal, it's been reported that people at the resort in the Bahamas, who were dancing to some salsa beats were asked by Bieber's security to put away their mobile phones as something special was about to happen. The 24-year-old singer and the 21-year-old model have not yet made any comments about their engagement.
However, E!News confirmed through a source who said, "They are engaged and it happened Saturday night in front of a crowd in Baker's Bay... Justin made arrangements for the ring when they were in NYC and knew that he wanted to propose to her. It was a sudden decision but Justin always knew Hailey and him had a special bond that was incomparable... The proposal was a very happy moment and Hailey was taken off guard... Her face was in shock but you could tell they are both so in love."
Bieber and Hailey reportedly got together almost three years ago and it has been an on-and-off affair for the couple ever since. They most recently rekindled their love several weeks ago while taking trips together to Miami and New York City. The couple's families seem to be glad about the engagement as Jeremy Bieber took to Instagram to post about his son's engagement. The caption read: "Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!"
In December 2014, Bieber posted a series of pictures on Instagram while on vacation with model Hailey Baldwin. Fans were quick to speculate the upcoming romance although Bieber at that point had denied having anything romantic with Hailey. He wrote: "People are crazy. I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise [sic]."
In 2016, Bieber threatened to quit Instagram after there were rumors about him being in a relationship with Sofia Richie. He had said, "I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate... This is getting out of hand if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.[sic]”
Bieber and Hailey's road to the perfect ending began almost three years ago. The two knew each other as teenagers but got into a relationship only in late 2014. Due to Bieber's whirlwind romance with Selena, their relationship too saw quite a number of ups and downs.
Their romance took a brighter turn during the 2016 New Year's holiday when the couple spent he vacation in the Caribbean. They were soon seen together weeks later at the Super Bowl 50 Weekend.
Over the next two years, the two parted ways as Bieber got back with his ex while Hailey sparked some romance rumors about her relationship with Shawn Mendes. The couple got back together last month, and have since traveled to places like Miami and New York City, where the singer proposed to the model for their happily ever after. In 2011, Hailey and her father Stephen Baldwin had joined Bieber at the premiere of his biopic 'Never Say Never' in New York City when Bieber was 16-year-old and Hailey was only 14. The couple has also celebrated this year's 4th of July holiday together in the Hamptons.
