Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have been married since 2018, and Bieber has made it clear, via more than one of his songs, that Baldwin is the love of his life. But when the couple answered fan questions on Facebook Watch show, “The Biebers on Watch,” Baldwin shared some of her personal feelings about being compared to her husband’s ex girlfriends, who are also public figures.
The question was how the Biebers “manage to be a couple when everyone feels like they have a say in their relationship.”
“It is definitely not easy. Justin knows I have a hard time with the things people say and the ways people make comparisons…The way they have made me feel like less of a woman.” She added: “I think when people have a lot to say or go out of their way to make people feel less than, it is because they are going through something bad. It helps to remind myself that that person is going through something themselves.”
Last April, Baldwin posted a photo of her and Bieber that was simply captioned, “my only bubba.” In the comments, fans started saying hurtful things such as: “in everything imitates selena even in her photo, Selena and Justin did the same, I can not believe how far this woman is down, maybe she wants to look like sel to see if Justin like that comes to love her really.”
Someone else said: “He will leave you one day and he will go to selenaaaaaaaaaa”.
Baldwin responded to some of the comments then, saying:
“We’re adults that have better things to do than waste time explaining something just so you can stop your delusional fantasies. I’m not going to sit here and let obsessive strangers try to tell me about my own husband, you wanna talk about somebodies [sic] husband then get ur own. G’night!!”
On the Facebook video, Baldwin also addressed how she lives her life as a public figure when she’s not in social isolation. She said that, growing up, she felt that she was able to have a “pretty normal life” in upstate New York, outside of the fact that she is a member of the famous “Baldwin” acting family. But things definitely changed when she started working and hanging out with her fellow famous young people. Then it went to a new level when she became a Bieber.
“I always felt like amongst all this stuff, I still was able to maintain my privacy and be normal, and then when we got married, it was like, all of that kind of went out the window. I had never lived in L.A. before, and then we were living in L.A. a lot of the time…To me there there has to be a balance. I don’t think it’s healthy to try to be extremely isolated because you don’t want to go outside and you don’ t want to leave your house because you know people are gonna follow you with cameras. But at the same time, you have to understand that that’s been a struggle for me.”
