TMZ is flat-out teasing that the couple could have gotten flat-out married, which is TOO MUCH.
In fact, TMZ's report is a lesson in breathless gossip—Bieber and Baldwin are apparently photographed appearing to enter a courthouse in New York City in paparazzi photos licensed on the site, but everything from that point on comes from anonymous court sources who should probably know better. Of his and Hailey's visit, one source says Bieber outright said "thanks for keeping this on the DL," which LOL. OH, AND JUSTIN CRIED AND TOLD HAILEY THAT HE "CAN'T WAIT TO MARRY YOU, BABY." And if he didn't segue from that line into, you know, "Baby," then I don't even want to continue reporting this goss.
Another source implies they think a courthouse judge was in the mix, like it was a real-deal sneak wedding moment! So who even knows! Maybe send the couple a spontaneous courthouse wedding-worthy cupcake, just in case? Or buy a cupcake and eat it in their honor? Worst case scenario, if this all doesn't pan out, then you got to eat a cupcake!
