It was the first time Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber hugged in public.
Earlier this week, Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber embraced for photos together (Oct. 15).
In front of the camera, Gomez and Bieber hugged while attending the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’ 2nd Annual Gala.
The smiling pair’s surprising appearance together comes after Hailey Bieber recently confronted longtime rumors that she “stole” husband Justin Bieber from Selena Gomez, his ex. She adamantly denied that narrative and opened up about the online hate she’s received on an episode of Alex Cooper’s Spotify podcast Call Her Daddy.
