1. Hailey Bieber addresses claim she 'stole' Justin from Selena Gomez

Hailey Bieber wants to clear the air. On the Call Her Daddy podcast, Bieber addressed claims she "stole" her husband, Justin Bieber, from his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, declaring definitively, "I can say period, point blank, I was never with him when he was in a relationship with anybody. That's the end of it." It's "not my character to mess with someone's relationship," she said, telling fans that nobody but the two of them knows "the truth of the situation" and "what the timeline really was." Bieber also revealed she has actually spoken with Gomez since marrying Justin, though she wasn't sure why the Only Murders in the Building star hasn't told fans to stop harassing her. "She doesn't owe me anything," Bieber said, but she added that if Gomez did want to do that, "then that would be amazing." So, will fans belieb her?
