Hailey Bieber embraces Selena Gomez at a gala dinner
After reports of a rivalry between the two over Justin Bieber, Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez joyfully photographed together at a star-studded event in Los Angeles on Saturday.
At the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’ second annual gala, not only did Hailey and Gomez grin for the cameras, but a lovely hug between the two was also caught on camera by photographer Tyrell Hampton.
Hampton commented on Instagram, “plot twist.”
Hailey’s recent appearance on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast, in which she emphasized that she and Gomez have no bad blood between them, preceded the cordial display.
“It’s all respect. It’s all love. … Neither of us owe anybody anything except respect. I respect her a lot, and I think there are no expectations [between us]. I respect her,” The 25-year-old beauty remarked of Gomez, 30
“Everybody on our side knows what happened, and we’re good, and we can walk away from it with clarity and respect,” she concluded, referring to her and Justin’s, 28, engagement in July 2018, only months after his final breakup with Gomez.
There is “no drama” between them, as Hailey reaffirmed that she had spoken to Gomez since her marriage to the “Peaches” singer in September 2018.
For eight years, Justin dated the star of “Only Murders in the Building.” A number of celebrities, including Hailey Baldwin and Sofia Richie, were rumored to be on his ‘break’ list.
The Grammy winner and Gomez made up for the last time toward the end of 2017. By March of the following year, he had rekindled his affair with Hailey, and the pair had officially split up.
During the interview, Hailey also insisted that she had never stolen Justin from Gomez.
