Everything for the family! Ireland Baldwin felt “obligated” to stand up for Hailey and Justin Bieber after fans sang for Selena at the Met Gala on September 13.
Hailey Baldwin, 24 and Justin Bieber, 27, were verbally assaulted in Met Gala Monday, September 13. In a video posted to the model’s TikTok page, fans could be heard chanting, “Selena! Selena! Selena! », In support of Justin’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, 29, as the famous couple walked the mat. ICYMI, Irlande Baldwin, 25, stood up for her cousin, because the two have always been “close” and HollywoodLa Vie has now EXCLUSIVELY learned why her cousin felt the need to speak up.
Ireland has proven that they are not here for the antics of mad fans. After Hailey shared the video, which she captioned “TASTING”, Ireland, daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, quickly took his defense, commenting: “They are one of the happiest and most loving couples I have ever had the chance to meet. They don’t care about them ”.
And now a source tells us, “They really are as close as two cousins could be and they are practically like sisters because they were pretty much raised together and spent so much time together. Ireland has always been very protective of Hailey, so she felt compelled to respond to enemies. She knows that sort of thing doesn’t bother Hailey and Justin, but Ireland adores them as a couple and doesn’t regret what she said.
Although this is not the first time the couple have dealt with enemies and have been harassed by fans still bitter about Justin’s wedding to the model, I hope this will be the last.
“Justin and Hailey don’t like the bullying they get and respect support over verbal threats when it comes to the past and Selena. As much as they anticipate and wait for it, they both want people to have a certain class to see what’s real and that is their relationship, ”a second source revealed. “It’s a sad thing to deal with, but they try to rise above it day in and day out because they are constantly under attack online and when they are on the go. ”
Despite all the negativity, the model-musician couple will take support where they can get it and no doubt have enjoyed Ireland standing up for them. “Justin and Hailey really love the support they got from Ireland. They both missed the negative statements and the fact that everyone has so much to say about their relationship, ”says a third source. ” [For] Ireland to defend them, it meant a lot to them.
Regardless of the negativity, the powerful couple showed up on top and got carried away on the PDA for the next event, a screening of Justin’s documentary, titled Justin Bieber: Our World. The lovebirds hit the rug and only had eyes for each other. At one point, as she walked the carpet on September 14, the “Peaches” singer cradled her face before giving her a few soft kisses. It was a night filled with love for the duo who again proved that their love is unstoppable.
