Hailey Baldwin (daughter of Stephen and Kennya, and not to be confused with Alec's daughter, Ireland) was sort-of dating Justin Bieber for the past few months. This was hard for her, she told Marie Claire for their May issue, mainly because Bieber has a very devoted-following.

"I don't want attention out of dating somebody," she said. "Texts started coming through, crazy phone calls...it's hard to date somebody in this industry," said the model, who if you blink quickly at her Marie Claire cover photo could be Keira Knightley.

"You have to have really thick skin and be very strong. You have to focus on the person and nothing else." Yeah, one would undoubtedly have to have very thick skin when dating a man who is simultaneously lauded for his musical abilities and derided for things like mooning staff at tourist sites.

Though, the two aren't really together. "We are not an exclusive couple. He's about to go on tour," the 19-year-old model told E! News in March, while also declaring herself single. An "insider" added that "Bieber and Hailey love each other but have a good understanding where they both stand at the moment."

That is code for FWB.
