Justin Bieber has a thing for models. Exhibit A: Oh, you didn't hear? This weekend, Bieber and Hailey Baldwin GOT ENGAGED.
Of course, you heard! (Sorry, Jelena stans.)
But before (and after) there was Baldwin, there was a whole bevy of models. In fact, Bieber is, er, was basically the Leonardo DiCaprio of the music world. Below, a list of the models the Biebs has been romantically involved with over the years, along with a check up on how everyone's doing these days.
Justin and Yovanna hung out for a hot sec in 2015 and were even Instagram official (well, they were on each other's Instagrams). At the time, she was a model. She is now 22 and still a model, albeit one with 5.3 million Insta followers. There was a brief moment in time where she was connected to The Weeknd in November of last year, which was v important and newsworthy because he'd just broken up with Selena Gomez at the time. And, you know, Selena and Justin (used to) date.
You remember Jayde, no? She was the one hanging out with Justin in Bora Bora in 2015 when those nudes of him went viral. About six months after they broke up, Jayde, now 21, announced on all her platforms she was pregnant. She and rapper Mike Dixon now have a lil bb named Ayla. Jayde continues to YouTube and generally influence.
Bronte was first in the picture back in 2016, somewhere in between the Sofia Richie and Hailey Baldwin era. She was a 19-year-old Australian model at the time. She is still an Australian model, per her Instagram. She is also maybe still in touch with Justin, as they had lunch in Australia like two weeks ago?
OK, fine, so it really does sound like Justin and Xenia were never more than just friends after she starred in his super-sexy 2015 "What Do You Mean" music video. That said, she's the one who let the world know (1) Justin's hair is that soft and (2) he does not use emojis when he texts. Anyway, the 28-year-old got married less than a year after everyone thought she and Justin were together. Her now-husband Ossama Fathi Rabah Al-Sharif is a 64-year-old multi-millionaire and their wedding was I-N-S-A-N-E. Xenia is still a model.
Justin and Ashley had a thing in 2015 (what a year!). They were spotted being all cute and cuddly and whatever at a Clippers game in L.A. at the time. Like Bronte, Ashley was a model then and now and, like Bronte, Ashley reconnected with Justin recently. They went hiking together at the end of February and there are a bunch of pictures to prove it.
The Australian model was first linked to Justin after his and Selena's 2014 split and ~reignited rumors~ about a relationship when they attended the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight together in Las Vegas in 2015. Justin posted two (!) pictures of her on his Insta that weekend. Whatever they had didn't last, as she's now a Victoria's Secret model who attends Vanity Fair after-parties and is engaged to DJ Ruckus.
Ah, Chantel Jeffries of Justin-Bieber-Gets-Arrested-for-a-DUI-and-Drag-Racing-Fame (she was in the passenger seat that night and they ran away to Central America afterward). They were reportedly for-real boyfriend and girlfriend! Since then, Chantel—who was a model then and is a model/DJ now—has dated Scott Disick, gotten hacked by someone who posted a fake-nude of Bieber to her Instagram, and has maintained her love of going really fast.
Justin and Natalia raised eyebrows for a moment in 2015 (!) when he appeared on not one, but two of her Instagram photos. In one of them, Justin appeared to be licking her back while holding onto her waist (they were fully clothed for the selfie and three other people were watching in the background, with red Solo cups). "Just friends," read the caption at the time. Not much happened after that but fun fact: Natalia's cousin is none other than Chantel Jeffries! These days, you can find Natalia modeling in the most gorgeous settings, be it the landscapes of Dubai or the woods.
In 2014, Justin and Alyssa, a Playboy Playmate, sparked dating rumors after the two were photographed making out on a yacht in Ibiza. According to TMZ at the time, the two hit it off "immediately" but were simply "having fun," as one does in Ibiza. Some four years later, Alyssa's Instagram account (541,000 followers and counting) effortlessly leaves little to the imagination.
Not long after the great breakup of 2012 (Jelena), Justin was briefly linked to Barbara, a Victoria's Secret model he met at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (he was a performer that year). To the horror of Jelena fans everywhere, Justin and Barbara posed for a photo together backstage. The ruckus eventually led Barbara to clear the air on Twitter and use the #friendship hashtag:
Barbara has since been crowned Rookie of the Year for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue (2016) and made her movie debut (playing queen Antimache in Hercules with Dwayne Johnson).
The 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show should've gotten an award for giving the world (1) Justin and Miranda hookup rumors; (2) Justin and Orlando Bloom's fight in Ibiza two years later; (3) that now-iconic curbside photo of Selena Gomez, Orlando, and a cigarette. In 2014, via her attorney, Miranda called the Justin hookup rumors "false and defamatory." Still, given her split from Orly in 2013, Justin's reported "she was good" comment just before he got punched, and Justin's now-deleted Insta of a bikini-clad Miranda, people were talking. Miranda has since reached 11.7 million Instagram followers and married Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel. She's expected to give birth to their first child in 2018.
In 2014, shortly after Adriana announced that she had separated from longtime beau Marko Jaric, she found herself in a hookup rumor with Justin. It didn't help that he shared this photo of the two of them partying at 1OAK during the Cannes Film Festival. It wasn't until December 2015 that Adriana set the record straight. Appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the Brazilian model said, "OK, I'm going to tell you this. Anybody below 6-foot-7, you know how I call them? Friends." Justin is 5-foot-9, BTW.
Adriana remains the longest-running Victoria's Secret model and regularly updates her 11.6 million Instagram followers on her work, two kids, and fitness. Sometimes she takes selfies.
Courtesy of The Daily Mail, Justin and Kendall began their rumored romance shortly after yet another Jelena break up in the fall of 2014. "Insiders" at the time claimed Kendall was the "catalyst" for the split. Responding to the rumors, Kendall told Nightline later that year: "He's a longtime friend of our family. Everybody loves to assume things, but no." In April 2015, Justin and Kendall sparked rumors again after appearing in some suggestive Instagrams together and, more importantly, this gorgeous photo spread for Vogue. One year later, in an interview with W, Kendall admitted to having "a 12-year-old crush" on the Biebs. She quickly followed up with, "Not anymore though!" In 2017, Kendall dethroned Gisele Bundchen as the highest paid model of the year with $22 million in earnings, NBD.
Justin and Sofia's relationship had everything: drama, the deletion of an Instagram account, and an apology from Selena Gomez. It all started when Justin posted photos of Sofia on Instagram in 2016. Fans got feisty, Justin got even feistier, and Selena chimed in. The whole thing led to Justin taking down his account, which really gave him more time to focus on things like celebrating Sofia's 18th birthday in Mexico and seeing the sights of Japan. In an interview with Billboard, Sofia called her relationship with Justin "special" and added that he was just "very easy to talk to, and that's hard to find with people in Los Angeles." Things fizzled not long after that Billboard interview. Sofia began hanging out with Bronte Blampied (full circle!) and then, less than one year later, Scott Disick happened. The two are still going strong, thanks for asking.
