You knew this day would come, Jelena fans.
Sure, you may have been cautiously optimistic when you learned that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had gotten back together for the 47 bajillionth time, but on some level you suspected that eventually, the Biebs would get busted engaging in some hardcore canoodling with someone who is very much not Selena.
If you go way back through Justin’s relationship Rolodex (that’s a thing your great-grandparents used to store their contacts in), you’ll find the name Hailey Baldwin.
Justin and Hailey dated back in 2016.
It’s really not all that long ago, but Justin has had sex with approximately all the women in the two years since they split.
In recent months, of course, Justin briefly reconciled with Selena, while Hailey (allegedly) dated Shawn Mendes.
Now that those relationships have gone bust, it seems Justin and Hailey are once again hooking up.
(Justin and Selena may have split because Bieber was hooking up with Hailey, but more on that later.)
According to Us Weekly the Biebs and Baldwin enjoyed a weekend in Miami that began with a “rare, low-key night” at the W club in South Beach.
Witnesses say the probable couple was spotted “being very flirty and dancing on each other” while “holding hands.”
“Justin [put] his arm around Hailey throughout the night,” says one onlooker.
“[They] didn’t shy away from the crowd or onlookers.”
The next morning, Justin and Hailey were spotted enjoyed poolside, during which she was seen toweling him off.
That night, they enjoyed a romantic dinner at Casa Tua before going clubbing again, this time at exclusive hotspot LIV.
To the surprise of absolutely no one, Justin is rumored to have reached out to Hailey several months ago … while he was still dating Selena.
Naturally, a rep for Justin has been quick to claim that he got in touch with his ex solely “as a friend.”
“Justin reached out to Hailey. They didn’t talk on the phone and it wasn’t in person, just an exchange of texts,” the source exclusively tells Us.
“There is nothing going on between her and Justin. She’s not interested in Justin in the slightest and he’s not interested in her.”
Based on the sound of that denial, we’re about three days away from an official relationship announcement.
Guard your feelings, Hailey.
If history has taught us anything, it’s that Justin will break your heart and kick you to the curb with a text that includes the word “gurl.”

On Thursday, May 10, an unthinkable tragedy struck.
A man, while using a public bathroom stall — already in what most would consider dire circumstances just for being there — had a container of soda with him.
Which he apparently spilled in an explosive manner, dousing not only the floor … but the shoes of another man in that restroom.
One can only imagine Twitter user Joe Grabinski's horror.
But, since humans sadly do not come equipped with self-destruct buttons — though the only socially acceptable response to this situation would be to promptly cease existing — he had no options left but to remain silent and immobile within the stall.
And, of course, to crowdsource some advice from Twitter.
The resulting thread details the advice that he received, and the remainder of his journey of humiliation and shame.
Take a look.
1. Disaster strikes
2. The first rule: do NOT exit the stall
3. Chad asks the question that we all immediately wondered
4. To Joe, this was apparently new advice
5. Chad points out that the floors are already bad
6. Chad even demonstrates his alternative
The Kentucky Derby was held at Churchill Downs over the weekend, and as usual, many of Hollywood’s best and brightest made the trip to Louisville.
For most of the celebrity attendees, the Derby was just one of many high-profile red carpet events on their calendar for 2018, but for one famous name, this is the social highlight of the year:
The family of Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, generally tries to keep the 11-year-old out of the spotlight as much as possible.
But on the first Saturday of every May, equestrian enthusiast Dannielynn dresses to the nines and steps out with her father, Larry Birkhead.
Larry tweeted the above photo on Saturday along with the following caption:
“Celebrating the Kentucky Derby with Dannielynn,” he wrote.
“Rain won’t spoil our awesome Derby day! #halfwaycooldad.”
Birkhead also shared the above photo from a Derby after-party, noting that there’s a special poignancy to the event:
“Dannielynn before she raided the dessert room at the Barnstable-Brown Party where I met her Mom in 2003,” Larry captioned the pic, adding the hashtags:
Though her mother died of a drug overdose when Dannielynn was just 5 months, she and her father often pay tribute to Anna Nicole, so as to ensure that the young girl always feels a connection to the late model.
In February of 2016, Larry memorably shared a letter that Dannielynn had written him during a candid 20/20 interview:
“Ever since my mother’s death, a friend of hers said she would send me pretty butterflies,” Dannielynn wrote.
“So, butterflies chase me everywhere and I let the butterfly come out of my pencil and fly on my paper with its wings of love.”
In the past, Larry has been accused of exploiting Anna Nicole’s death to boost his public profile, but these days, it seems he’s devoting most of his time and attention to his daughter.
Despite her often tumultuous upbringing, Dannielynn seems remarkable well-adjusted, and those who know the girl say she shares her mother’s ability to light up a room.
Here’s hoping Larry continues to mostly keep Dannielynn from the spotlight, for her sake.
