Selena Gomez is Happy With Niall Horan, But Her Ex Won’t Go Down Without a Fight

By  | 

Happy 2016, everyone! Although we’re just four days into the new year, it seems that celebrities are starting things off with a bang (no pun intended). First, Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner rekindled their romance while vacationing on a yacht together. Then, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were spotted canoodling at a New Year’s Eve party together. And now, to round things off on the confusing-celeb-romance scale, Justin Bieber posted a picture kissing Hailey Baldwin, his BFF that he once denied dating HUNDREDS of times.

The “Love Yourself” singer and the model have always been close, so fans initially thought nothing of the Instagram spree that came during their vacation to Anguilla and St. Barts. But among the pics of his family and questionably close poses with Stephen Baldwin’s daughter, The Biebs uploaded the one photo that people have been waited on baited breath for — a big ol’ smooch with the 19 year old.

Uhhh…wut? The timing of it all just seems a bit too convenient, if you ask us. Justin and Hailey have been best friends for-eh-ver, and have repeatedly denied claims that their relationship was anything more than platonic. And now, just weeks after Selena and Niall have been seen together multiple times and truly seem happy together (he reportedly gave her one of his t-shirts so it wouldn’t be as hard to be apart over the holidays), the “Hands To Myself” singer’s ex comes in and rubs his “new romance” in the world’s face.

Listen…we could definitely be overthinking this whole thing and Jailey actually pulled a Mila Kunis/Ashton Kutcher and realized their love for each other after years of friendship! But…we could also be spot-on in thinking JB knows exactly what he’s doing to Sel.

WDYT? Are Justin and Hailey really dating, or was their now-infamous smooch just a way to show some serious thirst? Tell us your thoughts below!
