Last fall, Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin took a lot of abuse when she was suspected of stealing Justin Bieber from Selena Gomez. Now she wants to let the world know her side of the story, which is, essentially: “I’M INNOCENT.” Palvin spoke with Celebuzz recently to clear her name and explain what really happened – or didn’t – between her and the Biebs.
It all started with a picture, taken backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, where Bieber was a musical guest. Palvin posted it to Instagram, and that’s when all hell broke loose. She told Celebuzz:
“You know how the drama started — Selena retweeted the picture.”
The Hungarian model is clear, though, that her only interest in Bieber was as his fan.
“I wanted to meet him real bad. I watched his movie [Justin Bieber: Never Say Never] and I was like, ‘He’s such a cool kid, I want to meet him.’ And then when I did at the [Victoria’s Secret] show we met and of course we had a conversation and then I took the picture with him.”
And what about their supposed “date” to see The Lion King on Broadway?
“It was my sister’s first time in New York and we so wanted to go to Broadway, but there were no more tickets. I just came up and was telling him, ‘My sister is here, but she’s sad because we can’t go to Broadway, no more tickets.’ And he was like, ‘Well, I can get you one.’ And his friends came . . . like six people and then me, my sister and agent. So friends. [After the show] we were just like okay, nice to meet you, that was fun, and then bye.”
That opportunistic move earned her death threats. But it’s OK, because her conscience is clear.
“I’m okay to talk about it because I know there’s nothing. It’s ridiculous how this got to the news.”
Jelena’s breakup didn’t last long, and neither did their rekindled relationship: they’ve called it quits again. Do you think they’ll give it another try, or are they done for good? And now that there’s nothing standing in the way of Bieber and Palvin getting together, do you think they should? What will we call them? Barstin? Justara?
