Thoughts on Hailey and Justin Bieber’s Relationship


Jazelle Covington, Online Staff Writer

The popular, and well-known relationship between Justin and Hailey Bieber has blown up the drama world and spread across media. This on-and-off couple began their love life in 2016.  Soon, the couple’s popularity spread fast around America, especially in the last two years, reaching celebrity drama magazines and online stories. Hailey and Justin’s beautiful wedding shocked all of his followers and made social media go wild. Their marriage ceremony in 2019 was held in a stunning church– a cliche yet amazing wedding. 

Looking back at how it all began, Haley and Justin met for the first time in 2009 becoming friends, but not more than just acquaintances. Hailey meeting Justin was not the encounter you’d imagine. She did not even shed a bit of a smile in the pictures, nearly looking uninterested. A few years later, the two future lovers met again at Justin’s documentary premiere of Never Say Never. During that time, Justin was dating Disney, and well-known, pop star Selena Gomez. Their beloved relationship had support from all Beliebers and everyone who kept track of celeb news. This being the case, Justin had no thought in mind about sparking a new relationship with Hailey. 

In 2016, Justin and Selena’s breakup saddened many fans. But Justin made a quick turn, posting a picture on Instagram of him and the supermodel Hailey kissing. These two lovebirds went from reunited, engaged, to married in the span of two years. 

The beginning of their relationship started off strong but had some bumps in the road. When Justin began his new albums, they slowly became more distant. In an interview, Bieber said, “The last project, I was still working through my own emotional stuff in my own life and some insecurities and just some fears.” Because he was dealing with his own issues at the time, it was affecting not only him but also Hailey and their relationship. Still, Hailey stood by his side, supporting him throughout it all. Since he was dealing with his emotions and stress, he seemed to be distant. People on social media noticed this. Justin began to show more irritation towards Hailey, making it seem like a toxic relationship. On Justin’s Instagram live, he told Hailey to “stop touching him” after she simply gave him a hug, touching his face. This young couple received a lot of hate on social media, saying that they were not a fit couple. Similarly, sophomore Kylie Zhou shared that she believes that the two “ seem toxic.” 

To the media, their relationship began to go downhill. Hailey received hate and criticism for marrying Justin. In an interview, Hailey stated, “I mean, I was married when I was 21, two months before I turned 22, which is insanely young. And sounds almost ridiculous when you say it out loud. …. We’ve seen a lot for our age. We have both lived enough life to know that’s what we wanted.” Though the couple receives judgement from people all over social media, their marriage still carries on and continues with no signs of ending. Yet who knows what might happen next to this couple’s relationship?
