For the first time in over four years, Justin Bieber’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez and his wife, Hailey Baldwin, have extended a kind hand to each other. And, despite their differences, they had a great time together last night in Los Angeles under the stars.
Selena and Hailey were reportedly all smiles as they partied together at the Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles on Sunday. They were also seen exchanging tender embraces. Tyrell Hampton, a professional BTS party photographer, captured several photographs of the two divas conversing and posing for the camera.
Hailey and Selena were dressed to the nines for the evening, looking every bit stunning in their chic attire. While Hailey opted for a strapless gown featuring a torso cutout and ruched detailing from Saint Laurent’s spring/summer 2023 collection, Selena opted for a chic black suit with satin lapels and flared trousers.
The singer paired her formal suit with open-toe sandals and statement chandelier earrings. On the other hand, Hailey opted for a vintage Tiffany & Co. necklace.
This cordial appearance of the two follows the model’s comments on the ‘Call Her Daddy’ podcast, in which she addressed years of fan conjecture about an alleged animosity between herself and Selena over their connections with Justin.
During her appearance on the podcast, she insisted that they have no bad blood between them as she never dated the ‘Peaches’ singer at the same time as Selena.
Hailey revealed that she and Justin restarted their affair in 2018 after he divorced Selena, claiming that she “was never in a relationship with him (Justin) when he was with anybody.”
“It’s all respect. It’s all love. … Neither of us owes anybody anything except respect. I respect her a lot, and I think there are no expectations [between us]. I respect her,” Hailey said about Selena on the podcast.
Justin and Selena dated on and off for about eight years. During this time, the ‘Yummy’ singer was linked to several girls, including Hailey and Sofia Richie.
Hailey and Justin tied the knot in a secret courthouse ceremony in 2018.
