A Timeline of Justin Bieber's Dating History
11 July 2018
Before proposing to on-and-off girlfriend and model Hailey Baldwin on Saturday, Justin Bieber had a few other ladies under his arm. Ever since he rose to fame through his YouTube covers and released his debut EP My World in 2009, his love life has been under a microscope -- even at age 15.
There have been plenty of rumors, including one fan who suggested the “Sorry” singer fathered her child after a backstage rendezvous. But in an interview clip Bieber used as the intro for “Maria” -- a track from his 2013 studio album Believe that addressed the allegation -- he said he “set the record straight, none of it is true.”
Here's what is true: We’ve collected all of Bieber’s reported hook-ups, flings and fully fledged relationships in a chronological history of the “Boyfriend” singer’s girlfriends below.
2008-2009: Justin Bieber Met Caitlin Beadles, His First Girlfriend, at Church
When Bieber moved to Atlanta in 2008 to work as Usher’s protégé, he met Beadles at church. Over the last few years, the “Believe” singer has been very vocal about his faith, and Beadles shares the same devotion to her faith, as seen in her Instagram bio: “Jesus knew about rejection His entire time on earth, but it did not change how He loved.” The two split when his touring schedule and rising fame grew too overwhelming to maintain their relationship. His song “Never Let You Go” from My World 2.0 from 2010 is rumored to be about Beadles. They spent Thanksgiving together last year when Christian Beadles, Caitlin’s brother and Justin’s friend, posted a picture of their reunion with the caption “So thankful for my brother and sister this thanksgiving.”
January-September 2010: Bieber Briefly Dated My World Tour Partner Jasmine Villegas
“It was like a little kid thing, it was like puppy love, if you could even call it that,” Jasmine Villegas recalled about her relationship with the “Baby” artist in a 2015 interview. He featured her in his “Baby” music video in April 2010, which has since garnered 1.9 billion YouTube views. According to Villegas, Bieber asked her mom for her phone number, which is how their nine-month relationship took off. But the fans at their concerts were not having it. “I got a couple middle fingers in the crowds, a little bit,” she said. “It comes from really anything when you’re in the eye and when you date somebody who’s a pop star.” They later both mutually decided to stay friends.
November 2012: He and Model Barbara Palvin Went on a Date to a Broadway Show
The 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was a busy time for Bieber, not just regarding his performance during the show itself. That’s where he met model Barbara Palvin, who saw the Broadway musical The Lion King with Bieber the following evening. She later denied serious dating rumors, but the outing seemed to officially end things with Gomez at the time.
November 2012: Miranda Kerr Denies Hooking Up With Bieber After Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
Palvin wasn’t Bieber’s only short-lived fling from the 2012 Victoria’s Secret event. He was rumored to have hooked up with Miranda Kerr after the show, which she denied. They also allegedly sent each other flirty text messages and cheek kisses while Kerr was married to Orlando Bloom. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor later duked it out with Bieber in Ibiza in July 2014 when the rumors reignited, one year after he and the Victoria’s Secret Angel divorced.
January-April 2014, July 2016: Bieber Gets Arrested for DUI With Chantel Jeffries in the Car
Remember when Bieber was arrested for a DUI? Chantel Jeffries does, because she was in the car with her then-casual beau when it happened in Miami. In a February 2014 interview with E! News, Jeffries deflected from answering whether she and Bieber had kissed or slept in the same bed before. But PDA aside, the two were spotted hanging out after one of his Purpose Tour shows at Madison Square Garden in July 2016, where they privately screened The Secret Life of Pets. He also shared a zoomed-in picture of Jeffries’ lips in February 2017, but the original picture -- an old-school photo of Jeffries -- has since been deleted from her Instagram.
