Justin Bieber took to the ‘gram to low-key gush over his wife, Hailey Baldwin. During his social media spree, he shared a series of candid snaps of the 22-year-old beauty. It was typical, modern-day affection.
Offering no comment, the 25 year old singer simply posted the photo – one of series – featuring spouse Hailey Bieber sitting behind the wheel of a car with a dreamlike expression on her face. The photo was met with an array of comments and more than 5 million likes.
However, it didn’t take long for fans to spot an interesting “like” from Hailey’s (kind of) former flame, Shawn Mendes. The “Stitches” singer double tapped one of Justin’s photos of Hailey, resulting in an Instagram firestorm.
Naturally, fan accounts of the famous couple caught wind of what happened and re-posted a screenshot of Shawn’s like. Fans were quick to speculate that the 20 year old “In My Blood” singer was flirty or out of place, but Justin quickly shut all of the chatter.
“They’re [sic] friends relax,” he chimed in on the comment section.
Justin made it very clear that he is not bothered by Hailey and Shawn interacting and that they’re nothing more than friends.
Hailey and Shawn created some buzz in the spring of 2018, seen spending time together on possible dates and went as a couple to the May 7 Met Gala. Shawn later claimed they were only pals and by June, Hailey was already dating Justin and now married.
Meanwhile, the Justin and Hailey has been very open and real about their marriage with Hailey telling that ‘marriage is really hard’ and is a constant work in progress.
