Is Justin Bieber proposing to Hailey Baldwin? According to a tabloid, heâs âready to settle down.â But Gossip Cop can debunk the report.
Star claims Baldwin has been wearing a âdecoy engagement ringâ to âkeep Selena Gomez awayâ from Bieber. But, referencing one of his songs, the magazine contends her âplan was just the splash of Cold Water he neededâ to realize he really does want to propose to the model. A so-called âsourceâ is quoted as saying, âJustinâs decided to pop the question.â
Again alluding to the superstarâs musical catalog, the outlet asserts Bieber âwants to showâ Baldwin that âitâs not too late to say sorry.â The problem, alleges the supposed snitch, is that âeveryone thinks Justin is going to break Haileyâs heart again.â Still, the purported tipster maintains Bieber âswears heâs not, and insists heâs changed.â The publicationâs âsourceâ even declares, âJustin is finally ready to become a husband.â
Yet at the end of the article, the tabloid adds that âthe engagement isnât happening just yet.â Huh? Isnât this whole story about how Bieber is âready to settle downâ and has âdecided to pop the questionâ? If it âisnât happening just yet,â when is it happening? In six months? A year? Tellingly, the tabloid never says. Thatâs likely because this tale is totally phony.
Just one day before this report was published, People reported that although Bieber and Baldwin have been sharing a lot of kisses, âItâs nothing to read into seriously. There are no wedding bells ringing.â Similarly, âEntertainment Tonightâ noted just a few days ago that although Bieber and Baldwin seem to be heating up, just based on how much time theyâve been spending together, theyâre only âcasually dating.â And exactly two weeks ago, E! Online addressed Bieber and Baldwinâs relationship status, explaining that they have âno labelâ and âjust like being together,â so theyâre âjust going with it for now.â
It should also be noted that last month, In Touch falsely claimed Baldwin and Bieber were âtalking marriage.â In that story, it was said he wasnât âwasting any time,â yet just like now, no specific time frame was given. This is significant because In Touch was recently bought by AMI, which already owns Star. That allows the two tabloids to share their questionable information with each other, as opposed to having two legitimately independent reporting operations. It certainly seems here that Star mightâve followed the misguided lead of its new sister publication.
Conclusion: The magazine claims Bieber wants to âpop the question,â but then contradictorily asserts an engagement âisnât happening yet.â Meanwhile, three respected outlets have all stressed that the relationship between him and Baldwin is casual and not serious. One, People, even directly goes against this âhusbandâ narrative, making it clear there arenât going to be âwedding bells ringing.â While itâs certainly possible the romance could progress, itâs obvious this storyline about the pair âsettling downâ is premature and inaccurate.
