Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin will take vows promising to love each other until death, but he’s hedging his bets with a prenup … TMZ has learned. Sources with direct knowledge tell us, Bieber and Hailey have each lawyered up for the negotiation…
Last week, when Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin got their marriage license, one of the eyewitnesses reported that they’d said something about leaving the country.
These two lovebirds have done just that. And while they may claim that they’re not married yet, they’re not exactly hiding their affection.
On top of their PDA, Justin went so far as to serenade Hailey in the streets of London.
Justin is supporting his not-wife Hailey, as the couple crossed the pond so that Hailey can walk the runway at the Falcon Catwalk Show with Adidas Originals.
While they were there, fans spotted the couple out and about, including Justin playing his guitar for Hailey.
An eyewitness to Justin and Hailey’s public displays of affection told E! all about it.
“They were very affectionate,” the witness reports.
The source goes on to describe the two “stopping on street corners to pull each other in close to kiss.”
The image of Justin and Hailey being so head over heels for each other that they could barely walk around London is a sweet one.
“They never let each other get too far,” the witness describes.
“And,” the source continues, they “were always touching each other and laughing.”
Apparently, this continued even when they tried to appreciate their surroundings.
Justin and Hailey waited in line to ride the London Eye, a famous landmark ferris wheel that people can ride in order to appreciate other landmarks.
While in line, the two “couldn’t stop kissing.”
That is so cute — and may be evidence that the two are flooded with feelings of marital bliss.
The eyewitness describes this kissing as going on the “entire time.”
Which means that they missed out on at least some of the sights. But that’s understandable.
The eyewitness explains that there was some healthy communication going on.
“Every few minutes,” the source says. “They kissed again before they went back to talking and smiling.”
Kissing is fine and well, but we hear that it’s good to talk to your wife — or, uh, future wife.
The singing is nice, too.
However, it doesn’t sound like they were too busy locking lips to remember where they were.
“They checked out the views of the city and had a great time,” the witness adds.
And their tour of London continued beyond the ferris wheel.
“Afterwards,” the eyewitness describes. “They walked along the river and checked out Big Ben.”
To be clear, that’s the literal clock and not a euphemism for the Biebs’ penis.
After Hailey and Justin obtained their marriage license, the two were considered legally married — but Hailey took to Twitter to shut it down.
“I understand where the speculation is coming from,” Hailey tweeted on Friday, September 14. “But I’m not married yet!”
As was later explained, Hailey and Justin don’t consider themselves married until they have their wedding.
That is totally fair — especially since these two diehard Christians consider marriage to be a religious commitment rather than merely a legal status for their relationship.
We have a sneaking suspicion that when Justin and Hailey marry — some time before early November, we imagine — they will let the world know.
They don’t seem to be hiding their affection, after all.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are currently in the eye of the marriage rumor storm, but they’re also in the eye of London. The soon-to-be-married couple was spotted on a date Tuesday. They got in line for the London Eye ferris wheel –…
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are not married, according to multiple sources directly connected to both, despite what Hailey’s uncle, Alec Baldwin, said. Alec told “Access Hollywood” Monday night, “They just went off and got married. They went…
On Thursday, September 13, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber were spotted in a courthouse. Eyewtinesses reported that the two of them were in the marriage bureau.
Though Hailey was quick to insist that obtaining a marriage license was not the same thing as already being married, fans were overjoyed.
But we’re now learning that the two may have made a mistake that could cost one of them a whole lot of money.
Us Weekly reports that, according to a legal insider who spoke to them, Justin and Hailey did not have a prenup when they went to that courthouse to get hitched.
A pre-nuptial agreement is a legal document that helps to hash out division of property before a marriage — in the event of a divorce.
These are not uncommon when one spouse is considerably more wealthy than the other.
Hailey is worth an estimated $ 2 million. Her father, Stephen Baldwin, has been largely unable to get work because he is so notoriously unpleasant, and it worth about $ 500,000.
In contrast, Justin Bieber’s estimated net worth is about $ 265 million. If these two get divorced, the Biebs could lose a sizable chunk of that.
On Friday, September 14, Hailey insisted that she wasn’t married yet, addressing the report on Twitter.
“I understand where the speculation is coming from,” Hailey wrote. “But I’m not married yet!”
Hailey has since deleted the tweet.
According to reports, it sounds like she doesn’t consider herself married until she has a wedding — which is fair.
For many people, the marriage license is for legal rights and conveniences. It’s the ceremony — or even the commitment to each other — that makes the marriage.
Fans should keep in mind that both Hailey and Justin are devoted Christians, and place more significance in the religious ceremony of marriage than in its legal recognition.
This may also be why the two of them did not opt for a prenup.
They’ve only been engaged for a few months, and got engaged after a few weeks of dating — just a few months after Justin and Selena Gomez split again.
But despite all of that, Justin and Hailey may be planning to take their marriage very seriously, and may feel a religious obligation to avoid divorce if possible.
Some people feel like they have something to prove when it comes to marrying without divorcing.
Of course, there’s another possible explanation for their lack of a prenup — that Justin and Hailey are young.
Hailey is 21. Justin is 24. They may be old enough to get married, but neither of them are even old enough to rent a car.
So we cannot help but wonder if they didn’t think about how incredibly common divorce is, or how catastrophically expensive it can be.
That said, maybe we should give them more credit. Maybe they’re not being foolish.
It may be that they thought about it, but Justin decided that if it comes down to it, he’d want Hailey to come out fo their marriage with her fair share.
It’s easy to be dismissive of two young stars who are head over heels in love and might not be thinking realistically about the future.
But while most of us might view this kind of “we’ll-beat-the-odds” optimism as little different from some poor gambler at a blackjack table telling themselves that they have to win sooner or later, that may be unfair.
At any rate, if Justin and Hailey are viewing this marriage as a sacred commitment, maybe they don’t want to get it bogged down in legal trappings.
We wish them the best — whenever they decide to get married on their terms.
A New York state marriage certificate is valid for 60 days, so we’re guessing that they’re planning their nuptials for some time between now and early November.
1:47 PM PT — Hailey Baldwin has just shot down other media reports claiming she and Justin already got married, saying, “I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!” The story below that TMZ broke stands. And…
Welcome to the great marital debate of 2018.
Earlier on Friday, multiple sources reported that Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber has entered a New York City courthouse… obtained a marriage license… and exchanged vows.
That’s to say: Baldwin and Bieber are married!!!!!!!
How exciting and unexpected, right?
Yes, if these reports are accurate.
But a pretty reliable source who is very close to the situation is telling everyone to please slow his or her roll.
Because no marriage has actually taken place.
“I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!” the 21-year-old model Tweeted Friday evening.
But here’s the the thing; this message has since been deleted.
And here’s the other thing: People Magazine is sticking by its claim that Bieber and Baldwin are husband and wife.
According to this publication’s sources, Bieber and Baldwin exchanged vows this afternoon and signed their marriage license.
They are absolutely, 100%, legally wed.
HOWEVER, Hailey “feels a civil ceremony and their ‘real’ wedding are two separate things,” one source explains, adding that the stars will hold a much bigger gathering somewhere down the line.
Adds a religious source, dubbed as such by People:
“What happened at the courthouse is a courthouse thing – a legal thing. But marriage is two people making a vow before God and the people they love.”
(Just to be clear: That’s completely false. A marriage, by definition, is a legally binding agreement between two people.)
TMZ, meanwhile, first broke the news of Justin and Hailey entering a courthouse in New York.
It even quoted a witness who overheard Bieber telling Baldwin, “I can’t wait to marry you, baby.”
But this celebrity gossip website says no ceremony of any kind took place, but we can expect one to be held some time next week.
Oh, and in case you were wondering why Baldwin and Bieber moved up their alleged plans to get married in 2019… it’s NOT because she’s pregnant, TMZ writes.
So that’s where things stand at the moment.
No one is really certain what’s going on.
But we do know that Bieber and Baldwin got engaged in early July.
The pair has stayed close after just having what appeared to be a fling a couple years ago; and then reunited romantically this summer after Justin committed himself to his faith.
They’ve since written some very nice things about each other on social media, with Bieber penning the following message to Hailey the day after their engagement news broke:
My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! Y
ou are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment eachother so well!!
Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!. It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense!
The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!!
That was just two months ago, but Baldwin has made no secret in the past that she sees no reason to have a long engagement.
When you know, you know… you know?
“My sister was 24 when she got married, and my parents also got married when they were young, too. I see no reason to wait. When you know it’s right, it’s right.” she told The Cut.
Baldwin also said her parents are totally on board:
“I said to them, ‘You’d stop me if you didn’t think this was the right decision, right?’ And they didn’t.”
Well, it’s official, folks.
Justin Bieber is a married man.
Multiple sources have confirmed to People magazine that Bieber and Hailey Baldwin tied the knot in a small private ceremony in New York City on Thursday.
The couple was spotted applying for a marriage license in Manhattan earlier that day, but it was widely assumed that they were in the early stages of wedding preparations.
Instead, Bieber and Baldwin executed a secretive ceremony every bit as surprising as the rest of their whirlwind romance.
Justin and Hailey got engaged back in July, but fans remained skeptical that they would ever take the plunge together.
“They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone,” an insider tells People.
No word yet on whether or not Justin stuck with his recent “Pablo Escobar associate hiding out in West Virginia” look for the ceremony, but don’t worry — it seems he and Hailey’s wedding celebration has just begun.
A second insider — identified only as “a religious source” tells People that Mr. and Mrs. Bieber are planning a second ceremony, this one featuring a guest list of hundreds.
“They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love,” says the tipster.
TMZ reports that Justin and Hailey were “extremely emotional” while obtaining their marriage license at an NYC courthouse.
“I can’t wait to marry you, baby,” Bieber reportedly told Baldwin at one point.
One onlooker claims Justin was heard to remark, “Thanks for keeping it on the DL” while speaking with a court official.
Though Justin’s loyal fan base was initially split on the news of his engagement, the response to his marriage has been overwhelmingly favorable thus far, with tens of thousands taking to social media to congratulate the couple.
While some remain chagrined that Justin is off the market, others see marriage as another step in the maturation of the once-troubled pop icon.
Thus far, neither party has spoken publicly about their low-key wedding, but insiders say both man and wife are ecstatic.
Our sincerest congrats go out to both Justin and Hailey on this joyous occasion.
And we’re not just saying that because we desperately want to be invited to the star-studded reception.
