Hailey Bieber is setting the record straight with her Call Her Daddy interview.

The model, whose been married to Justin Bieber since 2018, is addressing Selenators (you know, fans of Selena Gomez) who think she "stole" the Peaches singer from her.

In her most candid interview yet, she says: "A lot of the hate and the perpetuation comes from like, 'Oh, you stole [Justin].'

"And I guess maybe that just comes from the fact that they wished he had ended up with somebody else. And that's fine. You can wish that all you want but that's just not the case."'

"You're not obligated to like me. But I believe that no matter what, there can always be mutual respect between people... Behind this person that you're looking at on a screen is a person with a brain and a heart and emotions and issues that I face... So you just yeah, I think just mutual like respect and decency and know that what you say can have impact and know that. Yeah, I guess that's what I would say."

She also cleared the air on rumours that the two were romantically involved while the singer was still with the actor.

"When him and I ever started like hooking up or like anything of that sort, he was not ever in a relationship ever, at any point. It's not my character to mess with someone's relationship. I would just never do that. I was raised better than that. I'm not interested in doing that and I never was," she said.

"I think that there are situations where you can still kind of have back and forth with someone but even that was not the situation. I can say, period point blank I was never with him when he was in a relationship with anybody. That's the end of it."

She added: "I've literally never talked about this ever... I understand, again, how it looks from the outside and there's a lot of perception there. But that was a situation where I know for a fact that it was the right thing for them to close that door, they were not in a relationship at that time."
