Hailey Baldwin: Bieber keeps me grounded
Hailey Baldwin credits close friends including Justin Bieber for helping her stay grounded.
The 18-year-old model is no stranger to the celebrity lifestyle, as she is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin and the niece of Alec Baldwin.
Hailey is currently taking the modeling world by storm, and made her New York Fashion Week debut earlier this week.
And as her star continues to rise, Hailey says she relies on a group of her family and best pals to help her keep things in perspective.
“Be surrounded with people that are constantly uplifting you and that care about you and your soul,” Hailey told Page Six. “Honestly, without the support of my family, I wouldn’t be able to do it.”
Hailey was previously rumoured to be dating Justin, after the pair were seen enjoying a holiday in Miami this summer.
However, she insists they are just friends and have many aspects of their lives in common including their choice of worship venue, both opting to attend Pastor Carl Lentz and his wife Laura’s Hillsong church.
“[Justin and I] are very close with Carl and Laura. They care about me as authoritative figures in my life and I go to them with a lot of things and I ask for their advice,” she said. “It really keeps me grounded to be a part of their church.”
Justin is currently enjoying something of a career comeback thanks to his newest single What Do You Mean?
And as he continues to battle rumours about his reputation, Hailey insisted she wouldn’t be friends with the singer if the allegations were true.
“This past year [Justin] has made a lot of big changes in his life,” Hailey said. “He’s really a good person and I don’t think everybody knows that side of him. I think he’s trying to get everybody to know that’s who he really is.”
“He’s one of the most caring and most polite people I know.”
