Justin Bieber is quite popular with the ladies!
On Friday, the 21-year-old singer and model Ashley Moore certainly looked lovey-dovey at the Clippers-Wizards game at the Staples Center. The Biebs wrapped an arm around Ashley and appeared to plant a kiss on her forehead, but don't start shipping #Jashley just yet! A rep for the Canadian crooner tells E! News the cuddly duo are "just friends."
Sources confirmed the platonic nature of Justin and Ashley's relationship, too. "Nothing romantic has ever happened with them," said one insider. "They have always been fun and flirty friends like they showcased at the game but nothing more. They are very supportive of each other.
Justin and his model pal were joined by other friends at the game, a few of which posted Vines and tweets documenting the fun. The whole crew—Biebs included—appeared to be having a grand ol' time. Sadly, snuggles did not abound in their post Staples Center suite.
Not to worry, though! By the time Sunday rolled around, Justin had a beautiful new gal wrapped in his affectionate embrace: A puppy! This little lady appeared to be a Yorkshire Terrier, and it looks like she's already got Justin wrapped around her little paw.
He Instagrammed a picture of himself cuddling the tiny dog, telling fans, "Say hello to the newest member of the Bieber family #Esther"
Esther Bieber is clearly a cutie and looks like a wonderful addition to anyone's family. Justin had family on the mind this weekend, too, and possibly even a case of baby fever! On Saturday, he Instagrammed two photos of "the cutest baby ever." He's expressed interest in fatherhood before,too, Back in 2013, the Biebs told Us Weekly he hopes to "get married and start a family" while he's still young. "My grandparents Bruce and Diane Dale [are my relationship role models," he said. "They love each other so much, after so many years! When I'm their age, I want to be as in love with my wife as my grandfather is with his."
Eternal puppy love is possible, Beliebers!
