“They were not in a relationship” when she reconciled with Justin in June 2018, Hailey, 25, stated emphatically. “As a woman, I would never want to get into a relationship with someone — and be engaged to them and be getting married to them — and [be] thinking the back of my mind: I wonder if that [door] was really closed. … I know for a fact that the reason we were able to get back together was because it was very much completely closed.”
So there was no overlap at any level? “No,” Hailey advised host Alex Cooper. “Not one time. Let’s just put it this way: When [we] started hooking up … he was not ever in a relationship. At any point. I would never. It’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship. … I was raised better than that. … I can say period point-blank: I was never with him when he was in a relationship with anybody. That’s the end of it.”
Hailey spoke extra about Justin and Gomez’s temporary reunion, that ended a number of months earlier than Justin proposed to Hailey. She stated it was closure for the exes, who had a headline-making, on-and-off relationship over a span of eight years.
“It was the right thing for them to close that door,” she stated of Justin and Selena’s remaining parting. “It closed a chapter. I think it was the best thing that could have happened for him to move on.”
Hailey talked about being the goal of haters since Justin and Gomez break up for good.
“A lot of the hate, and the perpetuation, comes from [the misperception], ‘Oh, you stole him,'” she stated. “It comes from the fact that they wished he had ended up with someone else and that’s fine. You can wish that all you want but that’s just not the case.”
She added, “The only people that really know the truth of the situation and what the timeline really was and how it happened and how it went down are me and him. Perception is a really tricky thing because, when you’re watching something from the outside, you can see it one way. When it may not really be the reality of what happened behind closed doors.”
Hailey went on to disclose that she has has spoken to Gomez since she married Justin in September 2018. She stated, “It’s all respect. It’s all love” between them. “There’s no drama.”
“That’s also why I feel like if everybody on our side knows what happened and we’re good and we could walk away from it with clarity and respect, then that’s fine,” she stated. She stated the dialog “brought me a lot of peace. I’m like, ‘Hey, we know what happened.’ It is what it is. You’re never going to be able to correct every narrative.”
Hailey spoke in regards to the trolling she’s obtained from haters all these years. They’ve interrupted her Instagram Lives flooding her with hateful feedback, and stood exterior the Met Gala in 2021 to scream “Selena” when she and Justin walked the crimson carpet.
“Yes, I could hear everyone screaming,” she recalled. “I think there’s a certain part of you that has a numbness. … It was disrespectful to me, to my relationship. It just was. Period. The end. But I think I’ve endured so much disrespect — and I still do to this day — that there was like a part of me that was just like another day, another negative slay.”
Nonetheless, she added, “They’ve never ruined anything for me,” she stated of haters. “They’re not ruining my life. They’re not ruining my happiness — and that I think Is really the win of the whole thing. You’re actually not taking anything away from me. So that’s what I just keep stepping forward with. … You cannot take away my happiness, my relationship, my business, my career. You can be mad about it but it doesn’t change anything.”
She stated she wonders, “If we have moved on, why can’t you? That’s kind of just the whole thought process. It’s just hurtful. It’s bullying.”
Hailey was requested if she or Justin ever reached out to Selena ab out intervening along with her followers and calling for them to cease harassing Hailey. The reply was no.
“What I will say is that she has been in this industry much longer than I have and maybe there’s something that she knows — like it wouldn’t fix anything,” Hailey replied.
Cooper advised that Gomez merely liking certainly one of Hailey’s social posts may put an finish to quite a lot of the drama.
“I think that everyone is just trying to create separation,” Hailey replied, “even though there’s clearly not always separation. I have no expectation” of Gomez doing that. “I would never expect someone to do that for me. She doesn’t owe me anything. Neither of us owe anybody anything except respect. I respect her a lot. … If that was something that she felt was necessary, then that would be amazing.”
