Recently, the “Friends” singer posted a series of photos of his wife on his Instagram page.

It did not come as a surprise that the photos garnered millions of likes, but what did shock fans was Baldwin’s rumored ex, Shawn Mendes happened to like one of them.

Justin Bieber knows Hailey and Shawn are just friends

On March 6, Justin Bieber shared a series of photos showcasing his love for his wife Hailey Baldwin.

Most of the photos caught Baldwin off guard but Bieber wanted to show the world just how entranced he is with the love of his life.

The four photos of Baldwin garnered millions of likes, but the most liked of them all was the one of Baldwin putting on her seatbelt in the driver’s seat of a black SUV.

The photo currently has 5.3 million likes and one of the people who liked it just so happened to be Hailey’s rumored ex, Shawn Mendes.

Of course the internet wanted to start a little drama and shared a screenshot of Shawn Mendes’ like with Justin Bieber.

After seeing the screenshot, Justin Bieber quickly shut down any fans who believe that there is something going on between Hailey Baldwin and Shawn Mendes.

Many fans believed the “In My Blood” singer was being flirty with his like but Bieber quickly responded to those fans by writing, “Their [sic] friends relax.”

Hailey and Shawn were never in a relationship

Before Hailey Baldwin got engaged to Justin Bieber, many believed that she was romantically involved with Shawn Mendes.

The two celebrities were spotted for the first time together in October 2017 at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights.

Apparently after they had dinner, Baldwin and Mendes left Kendall Jenner’s co-hosted Halloween party together holding hands.

In May 2018, Hailey Baldwin attended that year’s Met Gala with Shawn Mendes as her date.

The two walked the red carpet together but Mendes confirmed, that night, that he and Baldwin were just friends.

“No, we were not making our big debut. Obviously, Hailey and I are friends, and it was just really cool for me to be able to walk with her because she’s a vet and it was my first year, so it kind of took the pressure off a little bit.”

Shawn Mendes is happy Hailey Baldwin found love

Of course with them only being friends, Shawn Mendes was very happy for Hailey Baldwin after it was revealed she was engaged.

Mendes also revealed that he was one of the first ones to congratulate his friend on her recent engagement.

“I texted Hailey the day of, and I said congrats,” Mendes said on the Australian show The Project. “That’s what it is. I think everybody wants there to be more — there’s not.”

Fans always want to get some inside scoop on any celebrity drama but when it comes to Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin, there is nothing to reveal other than they continue to remain good friends.
