Justin Bieber, 24, and Hailey Baldwin, 21, are happier than ever after getting engaged in July. However, Wendy Williams, 54, sees right through it! “I think the Baldwins look at Bieber as a cash cow… I think Stephen Baldwin (Hailey’s father) likes to be more relevant again to young people in pop culture and Bieber is a quick way to do that,” she told her studio audience on September 12. “I don’t believe that this is a marriage that will last,” she added.
This isn’t the first time Wendy’s expressed her disdain for the newly engaged couple. Back in July, just three days after JB proposed, Wendy said on her show that Hailey only has Bieber’s attention until his ex, Selena Gomez, 25, comes back around. Luckily, Hailey’s learned to tune out the haters, especially after the engagement news fueled negative criticism. “I don’t think it’s affected me really,” the model said (via Stellar Magazine) of the attention she’s received since the singer proposed. Now, she’s all about living in the moment. “I have learnt to just try my best to ignore the negativity at this time so that I can enjoy this season of my life,” Hailey said. In the same interview, Hailey also added that she is “beyond excited” to marry Bieber.
