If we have learned anything in the cruel summer of 2016, it is that you can’t build your life around a two month-long celebrity romance, however photogenic they may seem together.
While Bieber and the model/daughter of Lionel Richie were only together a very short amount of time, their relationship sent permanent ripples through the Bieberverse.
Biebs deleted his Instagram account after his perplexing decision to post several barely distinguishable photos of Richie in rapid succession didn’t go over well with Beliebers. Selena Gomez got involved, and eventually, Biebs peaced out of the social network.
For a minute, fans thought Bieber and Richie were over because Bieber was spending time in London with British model Bronte Blampied, but Bieber and Richie (Bichie?) seemed strong again when they vacationed in Mexico for the model’s 18th birthday. Yep, she was 17!
Now Richie is hanging out with Blampied in LA. Whatever could they be discussing!
Prior to hooking up with Richie, Bieber dated blond model Hailey Baldwin, who is the daughter of a famous Baldwin but not the most famous Baldwin, but Biebs was reluctant to put a label on the relationship. Leonardo DiCaprio would be proud.
Of course, love comes and goes, especially young love, but what about the children?
Bieber recently adopted a very fluffy dog named Todd who has known Richie for the entirety of his fluffy little life.
Todd, if you need a shoulder to cry on, we’re here for you.
