Hailey Baldwin married Justin Bieber just two months after attending the Met ball with Shawn Mendes. But did Justin and Shawn ever have any bad blood?
Justin and Hailey Bieber have had a whirlwind relationship. They were first romantically linked in 2015, but they they split for a while before rekindling their love in 2018. Then, they married, had a baby and are now one of Hollywood’s hottest couples.
But did you know Hailey was actually dating Shawn Mendes in the months before she started dating Justin Bieber again? Many fans assumed that Justin and Shawn must have had some drama over Hailey, but did they? Let’s explore what happened.
Shawn Mendes dated Hailey Baldwin
Back in 2018, Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin were romantically linked, but they were never actually officially in a relationship.
They were spotted hanging out together at the end of 2017, and they were getting pretty cosy at Kylie Jenner’s Halloween Party. When asked in interviews, they always claimed they were just friends though.
Then, Shawn posted an Instagram photo with Hailey in April 2018 and fans went crazy. In May 2018, they even attended the Met Gala together, both dressed in Tommy Hilfiger.
After that, their relationship seems to fizzle out and in an interview with E! News at the end of May, he confirmed he was single.
Did Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes have beef?
In June 2018, just a month after the Met Ball, Hailey started dating her ex Justin Bieber again, and then they got married in July 2018.
As Hailey moved on from Shawn pretty quick, fans instantly assumed that Justin and Shawn had beef. However, in reality, the pair were never actually feuding.
In an interview with Rolling Stone in 2018, Shawn revealed that his relationship with Hailey never had a “title” and “was more of a zone of limbo”.
When asked what he thought about Hailey and Justin’s marriage he said:
“I get it, you know. I texted Hailey, ‘Congratulations,’ and I really am happy for them. She’s still one of the f***ing coolest people ever — she’s not just a beautiful person visually, but she’s one of the most beautiful hearts I’ve ever met.”
So despite all the bad rumours, there was never actually any bad blood between Shawn and Justin.
Justin and Shawn collaborate on ‘Monster’
Proving that there really is no beef between the pair, Justin and Shawn just collaborated to release their new track Monster.
In the music video, they give an emotional performance in the middle of the woods, singing about life as a celebrity and what it’s like entering superstardom at such a young age.
Speaking in an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, Shawn said: “It’s about how society can put celebrities up on a pedestal and watch them fall and it seems to be this entertainment thing. And it’s hard.”
Monster is part of Shawn Mendes’ upcoming alum Wonder, out on December 4th.
