Yesterday, a video went viral on social media which fans thought showed Justin Bieber yelling aggressively at his wife Hailey Baldwin after performing at a club night in Las Vegas.
The video, taken by a fan, shows the pair walking through a Las Vegas casino following Bieber’s performance at the new Delilah nightclub. In the clip Bieber talks and gestures animatedly towards Baldwin as he walks side by side with her, followed by a large group of people.
Though you can’t hear what he’s saying, many people online interpreted the interaction as the musician shouting at his wife—a narrative the 24-year-old model has now deemed “beyond false.”

On Instagram Stories, Baldwin shared an image of her and Bieber kissing which was taken the same weekend, urging people not to “feed into the negative bull****.”
“Reminiscing on how amazing last weekend was. Had the best time surrounded by so much love,” she wrote. “Any other narrative floating around is beyond false. Don’t feed into the negative bull**** peeps.”
Eyewitnesses have also spoken out stating the headlines are all a misunderstanding. A bystander told TooFab in response to the clip, “He was not yelling and we were there to witness what went down.”
“He was on STRAIGHT adrenaline from performing,” they continued in a separate tweet. “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.”
Though Bieber didn’t respond to the reports directly, he did pop onto Instagram to share multiple photos from the trip, including one of Baldwin sitting on his lap laughing and looking as loved up as ever.
The Biebers recently returned home to the US from a European vacation together, wherein they posted PDA-packed photo after PDA-packed photo showing them swimming, boating and exploring Greece. “Thank you for being the squishiest most loveable human on the face of the earth,” Bieber wrote of his wife in one caption.
Furthermore, the singer recently opened up about how marrying Baldwin was the best decision of his life. In an interview with GQ, Bieber described getting to a place where he had all the fame and success he’d always wanted, but felt completely depressed and alone. “You wake up one day and…you’re unhappy and you have all this success in the world, but you’re just like: Well, what is this worth if I’m still feeling empty inside?,” he said.
But when he married Baldwin, everything changed. “We’re just creating these moments for us as a couple, as a family, that we’re building these memories,” he said. “And it’s beautiful that we have that to look forward to. Before, I didn’t have that to look forward to in my life,” he explained. “My home life was unstable. Like, my home life was not existing. I didn’t have a significant other. I didn’t have someone to love. I didn’t have someone to pour into. But now I have that.”
When prompted by Ellen DeGeneres about when they plan on expanding their family, Bieber said Baldwin wants to wait to focus on her career for a while first. “I’d love to have myself a little tribe. But, it’s her body and whatever she wants to do… I think she wants to have a few. At least two or three,” he said in December 2020.
“I think Hailey still has some things she wants to accomplish as a woman and I think she is just not ready yet. And I think that’s okay.”
Who would have thought these two—who got engaged after just two months of dating—would not only be still together but the ultimate couple goals years on? As they say, when you know, you know.
