Hailey Baldwin has been spending some quality time with Justin Bieber recently -- as evidenced by their ever-present Instagram pics -- but are the two more than just friends?

The 18-year-old model (and daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin) recently addressed the topic during an interview with E! News, insisting that there is not more to the story than just two good friends hanging out.

"I've known him since I was so young — since I was like 13 — and we've just been good friends over the years," Baldwin revealed. "We have just stayed close and there's nothing more to it than that."

While some Beliebers have seriously been getting riled up about the pair's apparent coupling, it looks like everyone can breathe a sigh of relief now -- the two are just friends. Of course, this is far from the first time that the Biebs has been linked to a model just because the two have posted pics together on Instagram -- and we doubt it will be the last.
