Have you heard the stunning news?
Multiple outlets have reported that the singer proposed to the model while the two were on vacation in the Bahamas and, of course, she said yes.
We know, right? EEEEK!!!
And also: WTH? Really?!?
Bieber and Baldwin carried on a fairly brief romance toward the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016, with the latter even admitting at the time that the stars were very casual and not exclusive.
They were basically just banging.
But Justin and Hailey reportedly kept in close touch after they went their separate ways and then started touching each other’s private parts again just last month.
The Internet saw photos of Baldwin and Bieber kissing, yet this same Internet was still woefully unprepared for this earth-shattering, life-altering engagement news.
Seriously, did any of you see this coming?!?
Naturally, however, there’s only one person whose take is truly desired right about now.
What, pray tell, must Selena Gomez be thinking at the moment?
The artist dated Bieber off and on for many years, culminating in a reconciliation this past fall that many assumed would lead to the Jelena wedding for which we’ve all been waiting.
Alas, the rekindled romance barely got off the ground before it ended… by Selena’s hand, nearly all insiders have indicated.
Still, just because she pulled the plug on Bieber, this doesn’t mean she’s totally cool with him asking someone else to marry him.
On the same day Bieber proposed to Baldwin, Gomez was hanging out in New York City with friends and looking like this:
Close friend and assistant Theresa Mingus shared the above snapshot on her Instagram Stories Sunday, just after the Bieber-Baldwin engagement news went viral.
It’s unlikely that Selena was actually aware at the time of her ex-boyfriend’s proposal, but we’d still like to believe she simply smiled broadly and shook her head upon learning what transpired.
Last we heard, Gomez was absolutely fine with Bieber dating Baldwin, having moved very far on from the man who treated her so poorly over the years.
“Selena doesn’t care what Justin does with his love life anymore,” a source said three weeks ago, adding:
“In the end, Justin turned out to be exactly the same person he [always was], a selfish and immature kid who only cares about himself.”
This may be true, but his engagement must still sting for Selena.
And for all those fans who fantasized that she would end up with Bieber in the end.
It’s also important to remember that Gomez has checked into rehab on multiple occasions to deal with bouts of depression and anxiety.
This makes us a bit concerned over her emotional state right about now.
Let’s just hope the singer’s support system is strongly in place and let’s just hope the above quote is accurate.
She can do so much better than Bieber and she better know it.
