The site reports that Bieber and Steinfeld have been dating for little “over a month,” and that while things are heating up between them, the relationship is “still fresh.” Those looking for signs of this seemingly sudden announcement need only go back to last month, when photos of Bieber showed him on a FaceTime call with Steinfeld in the back of a car.
Furthermore, the two were photographed together after the Met Gala this past Monday. Though Bieber did not attend the lavish event like he had in years past, and Steinfeld walked the red carpet solo, the pair allegedly met up afterwards, and were seen sitting on a couch together in downtown New York City. Check out one of the photos below.
But even with all these clues in mind, are the dating rumors true? As it turns out, the answer is no. Gossip Cop released an article denouncing the TMZ article, claiming that Beiber and Steinfeld are indeed friends, but they are by no means romantically involved with one another. “They are absolutely not a couple,” Gossip Cop reports, and that a mutual friend of the actress confirms that there’s “zero truth, none whatsoever” to these allegations. Neither Beiber nor Steinfeld have commented on the matter.
Bieber has yet to commit to a long-term relationship since his split from Selena Gomez in 2014. And while the “Sorry” singer has been romantically linked to starlets like Hailey Baldwin (Alec’s daughter) and Sofia Ritchie, none have proven to go beyond casual. Some believe that Bieber might still hung up on Gomez, who is currently in a serious relationship with R&B singer The Weeknd.
Steinfeld, on the other hand, has been much less prone to publicity than her pal Bieber. Whereas he has been tabloid fodder since his teens, Steinfeld, an Academy Award (True Grit) and Golden Globe (The Edge of Seventeen) nominee, has been extremely quiet when it comes to her personal life.
There is also the matter of Cameron Smoller (pictured above), whom Steinfeld attended a red carpet premiere with in January of this year and has been confirmed to be her boyfriend. If anything should squash the rumors involving her and Bieber, it would this crucial bit of information. As of now, it looks like the Biebs is still out looking for Mrs. Right.
