The 24-year-old model slammed claims that the "Baby" singer, 27, has been mistreating her during a recent appearance on Demi Lovato's weekly podcast, 4D With Demi Lovato. “It’s so far from the truth,” she stated, calling the rumors “one big, fat narrative.”
The young socialite also hit back at claims that they’re “miserable” in their relationship, insisting, “we’ve literally never been more obsessed with each other.”
“I really am lucky to say I’m with someone who is extremely respectful of me, who makes me feel special every single day,” she gushed about her relationship with her pop star hubby. “So when I see the opposite of that, I’m just like, 'Huh?' And everybody around who knows us personally would say the same thing.”
According to an insider, “it pains Hailey” when people act like she’s an abused wife. “She says Justin is no monster — he’s far from it.”
The blonde beauty’s been on the defensive since a video showing the singer in a seemingly heated moment yelling and waving his arms at her after a performance in Las Vegas went viral last July. “Their friends will tell you that Justin treats Hailey like she’s his best friend,” dishes the insider. “That said, it’s hard to maintain a relationship in the public eye because when they do have arguments, it all gets blown out of proportion.”
By their own admission, the couple, who tied the knot in Sept. 2018 after a roller-coaster romance, found marriage tough at first.
“Justin’s always been the more emotional one, but therapy has helped them both immensely,” the insider shares.
The social media personality — who posted snaps on Instagram on Sept. 19 showing the loved-up duo during a Jamaican getaway — “also has this calming strength, and now they can talk things through when problems arise,” the insider adds. “They’ve found a good groove.”
