Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin got married in a civil ceremony in New York City last month, despite the model denying that she was married.
On September 13, the couple were seen leaving a courthouse in New York City, which created intense speculation about their relationship. People Magazine reported that the couple had also made things legal between them.
The rumors only escalated when it was revealed that after getting a marriage license, the couple only had 60 days to make their marriage official in New York City. Alec Baldwin, Hailey’s uncle, then more or less confirmed speculation by saying at the Emmys that the couple “just went off and got married”.
Despite the intense speculation, Baldwin dispelled rumors at the time, saying, “‘I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!”
Apparently, the couple had only been getting a marriage license and were not in fact married.
Apparently, however, Bieber’s preacher Jeffrey Quin was present at the courthouse on September 13 as well, and had helped the young couple tie the knot. TMZ reported that their witness for the ceremony was Bieber’s friend Josh Mehl, who attends Church in Los Angeles with the What Do You Mean singer.
Mehl, like Bieber, is Canadian. The couple also reportedly asked for a prenup on the same day as their marriage license to protect Bieber’s net worth of $250 million and Baldwin’s worth of $2 million.
However, a prenup cannot be drafted and signed that quickly, which means that the couple have gotten married without a contract. The source revealed that Justin is “so in love and doesn’t see the need for one.”
The Windsor Star revealed that Bieber introduced Baldwin as his ‘wife’ in Ontario on Sunday during his visit to an exhibit dedicated to his career. Further sources told People that the only reason that Baldwin denied being married is because she does not consider herself married as of yet.
She feels that her civil ceremony and real wedding with Bieber will be two different things.
Neither Justin Bieber nor Haily Baldwin have commented on this renewed speculation.
