Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are "very connected".
The 'Sorry' hitmaker appeared to confirm speculation he is dating the blonde model after posting a picture of them sharing a passionate embrace during a trip to St. Barts and though they don't want to "label" their relationship, they are very close.
A source said: "He loves Hailey as a friend and considers her one of his best friends.
"They both also have a strong attraction towards each other and this trip they have been having fun with their families, but also had some alone time. Hailey and Justin like to party and let loose and this romantic connection has always been there.
"They don't have a label, but are very connected."
The pair have been friends for several years and their families have given the relationship their blessing.
The source told E! News: "Hailey and Justin have a very tight relationship. They both are very close with each other's families and care very deeply about each other.
"Hailey's family has been there and supported Justin through his transition so Justin has a strong respect for them.
"Both of their families love them together."
And insiders think the 19-year-old beauty can only be a positive influence on the 'What Do You Mean' singer.
Another source said: "She's a good girl who has a life based in Christian faith.
"It's nice to see that Justin has caught up with that and appreciates it."
So, how long until these sparks burn out?
"I don't think this is going away anytime soon."
And it seems Hailey is already showing her influence on the star as he is sporting a new braided hairstyle.
Showing off his locks on Instagram, he wrote: ""Hailey made me get corn rows like an absolute douche bag, these will be off tomorrow trust me Danny."
