Gigi Hadid Talks Justin Bieber, Says She’s “Still Best Friends” With Ex Cody Simpson
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model recently chatted with Women's Wear Daily, and opened up about her relationships with some of the biggest pop stars currently around. The blonde was asked about the hate she receives on social media for dating Cody, and she admitted it's difficult when people make so many incorrect assumptions.
"Someone tried to claim I never loved my ex-boyfriend because I broke up with him [because I was in] Sports Illustrated," she said. But people make up their own versions of the truth. "You only see just 1 percent of paparazzi shots when we’re at dinner or out — that’s 1 percent of our relationship. Like no one saw, you know, anything that’s real."
She continued, "I love Cody to death and he loves me. And he needed his time to focus on his music and he’s the one who broke up with me. We’re still best friends and I’ll always respect him and support his career."
Another headline she's clarifying is her relationship with Justin Bieber. "Justin’s a good friend of mine, he’s awesome," she said, adding that the two met through Cody. "I was on the Bieber tour for two weeks. It was crazy but so fun. I’m like one of the guys on tour, on a bus with 10 dudes. It’s gross. You have to get used to not showering. They’re like, 'How do you look so glam?' I’m like, 'Dry shampoo.'"
And despite what more false rumors might say, there is no ill feelings between any of them. "We’re friends and everything with my ex-boyfriend is cool, and him and Justin are really close. So it’s all good."
