They insisted that they were just good friends and kept people guessing over their relationship status for months, but now Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have made it official and Kourtney Kardashian could be the reason why.
Just a matter of weeks ago, Bieber was linked to the mother-of-three with reports suggesting that the pair were enjoying a little fling.
But with a New Year’s holiday in Anguilla, Justin and Hailey told the world that they were an item with their loved-up photos.
Now it has emerged that 19-year-old model Hailey allegedly put pressure on Bieber to “man up” and make it official.
“She demanded he stop stringing her along,” a source close to singer told Us Weekly.
“She said he would lose her if he didn’t man up and show he was serious about her.”
After Hailey delivered her ultimatum, Bieber stepped up to the plate.
“Justin has never had a woman act like that before,” the source said.
“He couldn’t say no. So he’s been seeing her again and is with her all the time.”
It’s been quite a turnaround for Bieber, who was spotted rocking Hailey’s Victoria’s Secret sweatpants earlier this week. In October he insisted that he was not ready for a relationship after his messy split from Selena Gomez.
He previously told the magazine: “I’m not really ready to date right now.I’m just trying to just focus on my music.”
The star recently revealed what led him to turn his life around.
The 21-year-old singer – who previously hit the headlines for his wild partying, arrests for motoring offences and egging a neighbour’s house – was feeling “pretty lost” and though he isn’t “super religious”, his faith inspired him to take things in a different direction.
Speaking on radio programme The Bert Show, he said: “I am not going to go into detail of what I was doing and where I was at, but I was pretty lost and woke up one day and felt like God was telling me something.
“I’m not super religious or anything but I just heard a voice and was like, ‘You know what? I’m going to change my life around. I’m going to switch up some things and put some stuff together’.
“I called my manager Scooter and said, ‘We need to fix it.'”
