Shawn Mendes Says He’s NOT Dating Hailey Baldwin, Despite Met Gala Outing
A lot of celebrity couples made their red-carpet debut at past Met Galas, but — surprise! — Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin do not fall into that category.
Many people thought the 19-year-old singer and 21-year-old model were confirming their rumored relationship by walking the carpet together at this year’s fashion event, but that’s actually not the case at all.
He continues, “Obviously Hailey and I are friends, and it was just really cool for me to be able to walk with her because she’s a vet and it was my first year, so it kind of took the pressure off a little bit. I was thrilled to be able to go with her.”
This marks the second time the “In My Blood” crooner denied rumors that he’s dating Hailey in just about a month’s time. He was forced to say they’re just “really good friends” after he posted a picture with her on Instagram, causing people to freak the eff out.
“Hailey said she wished she could post the photo without the Internet exploding,” he explained. “Then I said, ‘You know what, I’m just gonna do it! Suddenly we were ‘confirmed.'”
See? If two people take a picture or hang out together it does not automatically mean they’re dating. What a concept!
