American actress and singer Selena Gomez and American model and television personality Hailey Bieber were photographed together at last night’s Academy Museum Gala.
Selena Gomez, who previously had a high-profile relationship with pop star Justin Bieber, who is now married to the former Baldwin. Before Bieber and his model wife tied the knot in 2018, he and Gomez had a whirlwind on-again, off-again relationship that spanned 2011 and 2014.
Photographer Tyrell Hampton captured the photos, sharing one on his Instagram and declaring the moment a “plot twist” in the caption. Bieber was absent from the photos, per Entertainment Weekly.
The show of unity comes after the former Baldwin addressed allegations that she “stole” her beau from Gomez. The model denied rumors of a feud between her and the actress and singer while on the Call Her Daddy podcast last month, reiterating that she and Bieber began a relationship long after he “closed a chapter” with Gomez.

“It’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship,” she said. “A lot of the hate, and the perpetuation, comes from the misperception, ‘Oh, you stole him.’ It comes from the fact that they wished he had ended up with someone else and that’s fine. You can wish that all you want but that’s just not the case.” She noted she has “a lot” of respect for Gomez, adding, “There’s no drama.”
“I respect her; there’s no drama personally,” Hailey explained, noting that they had had a conversation that she got a “a lot of peace” from. “That’s also why I feel like if everybody on our side knows what happened and we’re good and we could walk away from it with clarity and respect, then, like, that’s fine.”
Shortly after, Selena went on TikTok live to talk about online hate. While she didn’t mention Hailey by name, she said, “I think some of the things that I don’t even need to be aware of are just vile and disgusting. And it’s not fair, and no one ever should be spoken to in the manner that I’ve seen.”
Along with Bieber and Gomez, other stars like George Clooney, Regina Hall, Michelle Yeoh, Jonathan Majors, Olivia Wilde, Laura Dern, and Sterling K. Brown, among others, attended the Academy Museum’s second annual gala on Saturday night, which honored Julia Roberts, Tilda Swinton, Steve McQueen, and Miky Lee.
The Los Angeles event where Gomez and Bieber crossed paths on Saturday honored Julia Roberts with the Academy inaugural Museum Gala Icon Award, Tilda Swinton with the Visionary Award, Steve McQueen with the Vantage Award and Miky Lee with the Pillar Award.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Diana Ross dropped in for a special surprise performance, and this year’s gala raised $10 million to support the museum’s access, education and programming initiatives.
