Does the above photo look like a couple of people who are “just friends” to you? Well, that’s exactly what they are, if you listen to actor Stephen Baldwin.
Baldwin was recently asked by TMZ about his daughter Hailey‘s relationship with Justin Bieber after the singer uploaded a photo of the two swapping spit with each other on Instagram. But according to Baldwin, there’s no official relationship to speak of.
There’s no label on it, just friends,” Baldwin said.
But Baldwin was also quick to praise Bieber.
“Mr. Bieber is a wonderful young man, hugely talented, got a lot more success ahead of him,” he said.
It was revealed last week that Stephen is actually responsible for introducing Justin and Hailey to each other, way back in 2009.

“This is my daughter Hailey,” Baldwin says to a young Bieber at the beginning of his career. “We’ve been enjoying your music.”
Stephen was also asked by TMZ if he would want Justin to ask for permission before asking Hailey to marry him, but he laughed the question off.
“We’re far away from that,” he said.
For her part, Hailey sent out a cryptic tweet Sunday night that seemed to be in response to the story about her Dad starting to trend.
I just wanna keep my private life private and my family helps me do that.

It sounds like even if Justin and Hailey are an item, we won’t be getting real confirmation from Stephen or anyone else close to the couple anytime soon.
