Justin Bieber shuts down paparazzo who asked if Hailey Baldwin is pregnant
If there’s anything Justin Bieber is known for other than his songs and love interests, it’s his infamous paparazzi run-ins. This is why fans were surprised when the 24-year-old singer calmly shut down the paparazzo who was hounding him about the pregnancy rumors surrounding fiancée Hailey Baldwin.
“Congratulations on the wedding Justin,” greeted the paparazzo who shared the video of his encounter with Bieber on YouTube last Friday, July 20. The singer was seen exiting a black Range Rover.
“You got any plans on where you’re gonna have the wedding or—” asked the photographer. Bieber immediately replied with a clear “no.”
“Okay, you know who’s gonna be on the guest list or who’s gonna perform?” the paparazzo asked once again. The singer replied with a “no” once more.
“Anything at all?” the photographer pushed. Bieber calmly replied, “Nope, I don’t.”
“Well you must be having the time of your life man, you must be really happy right now,” noted the paparazzo, referring to the singer’s recent engagement with Baldwin. Much to his dismay, Bieber only replied saying a flat “yeah.”
Because the singer appeared to be uninterested, the photographer only remarked, “That’s awesome dude, I’m glad to see that you guys were able to make that happen.”
Bieber was seen entering Blue Bottle Coffee, a coffee roaster and retailer. The singer appeared to be on good terms with the barista. The said paparazzo waited for him outside the shop.
The photographer did not hold back in questioning Bieber this time. “Hey, Justin is Hailey pregnant right now?”
“You stated about you guys [being] a family so everybody was thinking that she might be pregnant. Can you speak on that?”
“What’s your deal bro?” retorted Bieber who still appeared to be calm despite the paparazzo’s brazen question. “You just seem too like, you seem too normal to be doing this job.”
“Really?” asked the photographer. Bieber replied with an “I think so.”
“Well I mean you’re a normal guy too, you’re like one of the biggest celebrities in the world so—” the paparazzo tried to reason out. The singer, however, did not allow him to continue, asking, “I mean, I just don’t understand why you gotta try to get a rise, you know what I’m saying?”
The photographer insisted on asking Bieber about Baldwin’s pregnancy rumors. The singer remained steadfast in his resolve to calmly address the paparazzo. Finally getting the hint, the photographer apologized, saying he didn’t mean to offend Bieber.
“No, it’s all good,” said Bieber. “Put the camera down.”
Bieber and Baldwin got back together in May this year and announced their engagement at the beginning of July. Despite the fact that the two previously dated before, fans suspected the fast engagement may be due to an upcoming baby. Kate Matriano/NVG
