Selena Gomez And Hailey Bieber Were Publicly Photographed Together For The First Time

In the words of Hailey Bieber: "I respect her; there's no drama personally."

Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber were photographed together at last night's Academy Museum Gala.

The news comes after Hailey explicitly addressed their relationship, given that Hailey married Justin Bieber shortly after Selena Gomez dated him — a fact that has long garnered headlines.

"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."

Understandably, the two have never been pictured together — until photographer Tyrell Hampton snapped them sitting closely together and smiling at the museum gala.
