Clearing the air. Hailey Bieber responded to Justin’s yelling video and claims he “mistreats” her and that they have a “miserable” marriage.
In an interview on 4D With Demi Lovato on Friday, September 17, Hailey revealed the “truth” about reports that Justin isn’t “nice” or “respectful” to her in their marriage. “You have to know what the truth is behind everything. There’s so many narratives that float around about me, about him, about us together,” she said. “There’s one big fat narrative that goes around that’s like, ‘Justin is not nice to her and he mistreats her.’ It’s so far from the truth. It’s the complete and utter opposite.”

She continued, “I really am lucky to say I’m with someone who is extremely respectful of me, who makes me feel special every single day. So when I see the opposite of that, I’m just like, ‘Huh?’ And everybody around who knows us personally would say the same thing.”
Hailey also responded to rumors that she and Justin have fallen out of love with each other since their marriage in 2018. “If the lie is, ‘They’re miserable in their relationship.’ Well, the truth is that we’ve literally never been more obsessed with each other and we have so much fun together,” she said. She also described how Justin makes her feel “secure,” even in her “low days.”
“I think Justin does a very good job of reminding me because I have my low days where I’m like, ‘This is too much and all the things people are saying, I can’t take it today,'” she said. “Again, he’ll come in and be like, ‘Well, the truth is this, the truth is that you’re good and you’re secure and you’re loved and all of your friends love you and your family loves you and I love you.'”
As for how their marriage works, Hailey noted that she’s “really practical” and the “problem solver” in their relationship,” whereas Justin is “the more emotional one who’s very sensitive.” “To be honest, he’s my best friend, so sometimes you don’t even have to say anything,” she said. “Sometimes you can just be there.”
She also responded to reports that she wouldn’t be “known” if it wasn’t for her husband. “When you marry someone that is really well known, you also accept that a lot of the time people are going to be like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s blah, blah blah’s wife.’ It doesn’t bother me. It bothers me when people try to take it and flip it and be like, ‘People wouldn’t know who you were if you weren’t his wife.’ Because I disagree, I’m sorry, but I disagree.”
Hailey went on to tell Demi about how her independence “was actually one of the biggest things that scared me about getting married.” She continued, “There were times where I felt like I lost that within our relationship, especially when it was new and in the beginning.”
Hailey also reflected on the time that she and Justin broke up before their marriage from 2016 to 2018, which is the time Justin reconnected with his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, before he reunited with Hailey.
“When we split up and we didn’t talk for a very long time, I feel like I worked very hard to continue establishing who Hailey was and I still work to establish that,” she said. “At the end of the day, it doesn’t bother me when somebody’s like, ‘Oh, you’re Justin’s wife.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m Justin’s wife!’ Because where is the lie?”
Hailey’s interview comes two months after a video went viral of Justin allegedly “yelling” at her in public in Las Vegas. In a post on her Instagram Story onJuly 14, Hailey called rumors that Justin screamed at her in front of his fans “beyond false” and maintained that her time in Las Vegas with her husband was filled with nothing but “love.” “Reminiscing on how amazing last weekend was,” Hailey captioned a photo of her and Justing kissing. “Had the best time surrounded by so much love. Any other narrative floating around is beyond false. Don’t feed into the negative bullshit peeps.”
Rumors of Justin’s behavior toward Hailey came after TikTok user @Yangeric23 posted a video over the weekend of the couple leaving the Delilah night club at the Wynn Las Vegas on Saturday, July 10. The video showed Justin and Hailey holding hands as the “Baby” singer talked loudly at her as fans and bodyguards surrounded them. After the clip was posted, the video, which has @Yangeric23 has since taken down, went viral on TikTok, with more than 1.2 million views. (Watch the video here.)
Before the TikTok was deleted, however, many users took to the video’s comments to slam Justin for how he allegedly treated Hailey. “He does not love her sadly,” wrote user @nicolecampoli11. User @ccaokj commented, “He constantly embarrass her.” However, fans who were there defended Justin, claiming that he wasn’t yelling Hailey out of anger but out of excitement. The fans claimed that the video was taken moments after Justin performed with Diplo at the club.
“my friends and I were with/behind him the whole night, he was in the best mood and was telling her a story but ofc internet lames love their lil scenarios <3,” tweeted user @aliaespinozaa. Twitter user @biebsclubhouse, who posted several videos of Justin’s performance including a song he dedicated to Hailey, also denied that he yelled at his wife out of anger.
“I was right there walking behind him and he was not yelling at her. He had just gotten off stage at the club and was hype and had all this adrenaline. They were both smiling and laughing but of course that’s not the part of the video that gets posted. Stop twisting things,” the user tweeted.
The user also tweeted a video of Justin’s performance, which they said was taken right before the viral TikTok video. “I took this of Justin right before that video was taken. He was on STRAIGHT adrenaline from performing. He wasn’t mad at Hailey and he wasn’t yelling at her. I hate how he’s always painted as the bad guy when he’s the furthest thing from it,” the user wrote.
Justin and Hailey, who married in 2018 after years of on-again, off-again dating, were in Las Vegas to celebrate Kendall Jenner’s new tequila brand, 818 Tequila. While in Las Vegas, the couple, as well as Kendall and their friends, Justine Skye, Ryan Good, Maeve Riley, Zak Bia and Keia Moniz, were seen at Delilah, a new club at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel.
“The group arrived together to Delilah after pre-gaming on a party bus that took them on the strip and then to the venue,” a source told E! News. “They arrived around 11:30 p.m. and were escorted to their own private table. The club was packed and many people were trying to approach their table.”
According to the source, Justin had such a good time that he went on stage and performed a few of his songs as a surprise for the audience. “He looked really happy to be singing and was dancing and vibing with the crowd,” the insider said. “He was smiling and in a great mood. Several bottles of 818 tequila were brought out by club employees and everyone was chanting ‘818’ and holding the bottles in the air. They were serving specialty cocktails with 818, including one that Kendall created, and had bottles on tables throughout the club.”
Along with performing, the insider also said that Justin poured shots for the crowd with Kendall. The source also told E! News that the group of women “definitely looked like they were having a fun girls’ night out together and were all drinking and dancing together with the other girls at the table, while Bieber was on stage performing. They all left around 2 a.m.”
