That year, the pair accepted that there was something brewing between them, but they still shied away from saying they were exclusive, according to statements the model made to E! News at the time. It seemed, though, that Justin declared what could happen in the future in an interview with GQ: "What would happen if Hailey turned out to be the girl that I marry?" The pressure exerted by the media and their own busy agendas seemed to get in the way of their relationship. They even stopped following each other on social media, which is the millennial way of ending a relationship of any kind.
Justin then started dating Lionel Richie's daughter (and Scott Disick's current gal), Sofia Richie.
