The world is healing and ex-girlfriends and wives are becoming friends. If you don’t understand the context, well, here’s what you need to know: Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber recently posed together for the first time and, sent fans into a tizzy. The two have often been dragged into conversations by Justin Bieber’s fans (for obvious reasons) and shown in a negative light, but the two women in question are clearly moving on and leveling up.
In a photo taken by Tyrell Hampton at the Academy Museum Gala in LA, Gomez and Bieber can be seen embracing each other in a warm hug, and posing cozily for the camera. The the picture went viral in no time, giving fans an opportunity to celebrate this, um, milestone?
Awkward? Well, not for Bieber’s girls (ex and current) at least!
While the fans find it hard to believe that there is no cold blood between the two, Hailey recently opened up about her equation with Gomez on a podcast and maintained that they share a cordial relationship. “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,” told Hailey.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez dated on and off for eight years. In between this ( somewhat turbulent) relationship, the Baby singer was linked to Hailey Bieber and Sofia Richie, among several other stars. Gomez and Bieber called it quits in March 2017, after which, in the following year, Bieber rekindled his romance with Hailey. The two got married in 2018. And, it’s been a happily ever after. At least up until now.
