UPDATE: Hailey Baldwin tweeted that she spent the night at her own house.


Have Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin taken their friendship to the next level?

The 20-year-old pop star and 18-year-old model, daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, have sparked dating rumors for weeks. They have previously said they're friends. On Friday, the day after Christmas, they were seen out alone at the Mr. Chow Chinese restaurant in New York. As they left the posh eatery, Bieber smiled and held what appeared to be a plate against his face.

Hailey met Bieber at his home and they were then driven by a chauffeur to the restaurant, E! News has learned. The two looked like a couple, an eyewitness said, adding that Hailey brought a gift for the singer. The two spent more than an hour at the restaurant and then headed to a movie theater, where they watched The Gambler, a crime thriller starringark Wahlberg.

The pair later returned to Bieber's residence, the eyewitness told E! News. On Saturday morning, the two were seen at a diner in New Jersey.

On Saturday afternoon, Hailey took to Twitter to clarify where she spent the night.

"Glad I got such a good night sleep last night, at MY own home, alone," she said.

Hailey and Bieber had previously dismissed relationship rumors, despite being spotted during the last few weeks having lunch in Beverly Hills, shopping at Target, sitting courtside at a Los Angeles Clippers game and playing arcade games together. In November, he joined her at her birthday party.

She told E! News in early December that she has known the pop star since she was about 13.

"We've just been good friends over the years and we have just stayed close and there's nothing more to it than that," she said.

Bieber had said on Dec. 15 that he is "super single" and called Hailey a "good friend."

The pop star was last linked romantically to on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez, who had also said in an interview with a Norwegian radio station earlier this month that she was not currently dating anyone.
