Hailey Bieber is describing for the first time how her husband Justin Bieber “closed a chapter” with ex Selena Gomez before their wedding.
The model broke down the “timeline” of her July 2018 engagement to the singer — which coincided with his brief reunion with Gomez — on Wednesday’s episode of Alexandra Cooper’s “Call Her Daddy” podcast.
The former “Drop the Mic” host said she was “period point blank … when he was with anybody, he never had a relationship.”
Hailey, 25, clarified that she never “stolen” Justin, 30, of the “Wizards of Waverly Place” alum, saying it was “no.” [her] Worthy of messing up one’s relationship.”
The former ballerina explained that she had “closed a chapter” with Gomez before her partner got down on one knee.
“I think it was the best thing for him to go ahead and get engaged and get married and move on with his life that way,” Haley explained. “I know what was going on when we got together and I know what needs to happen to get together in a healthy way.”
She praised the 28-year-old’s “mature, healthy judgement” and called it “respectable for her”.
“I never want to get into a relationship and marry them and think to myself, ‘I wonder if it’s really off for you,'” Haley added. “I know we can get back together because it was completely closed.”
The Road skincare producer, who married Justin in September 2018, noted that he had “stepped away from any kind of drama” with the actress.
“I don’t want to move anything or bring anything,” she said. “[Fans] Wish he ended up with someone else and that’s ok. You can wish for it all you want, but it’s not.”
Haley asked, “If we’ve moved on, why not you?”
She was first romantically linked to Justin in December 2015 when the “Baby” singer and Gomez broke up.
The on-again, off-again couple split in 2016 and Justin moved on with Sofia Richie.
In November 2017, was seen on a bike ride with Gomez. By March of the following year, the reconciled ex had called it quits, and he reunited with Hailey in June 2018.
Three months after their courthouse wedding, the two remarried in September 2019 in South Carolina in front of family and friends.
Hailey has previously clapped back at those against her marriage, and in April told the haters to “leave. [her] Alone.”
“Enough time has passed,” she said at the time. “I am minding my business. I don’t do anything, I don’t say anything.”
