Whatever the status, Mendes supports both of his celebrity pals. 

"I love them both," he said. "They're both really awesome people."

The duo certainly has a complicated history. After knowing each other for years, Bieber and Baldwin sparked romance rumors in 2014. Bieber even referred to her as "someone I really love" in a 2016 interview with GQ. Still, she told E! News they weren't an "exclusive couple."

Baldwin opened up about their relationship history in a May interview with The Times UK.

"Justin and I were friends for a long time," Baldwin told the publication. "I met him when I was really young and he was one of my best friends. Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you're 18, 19. It was what it was. We went through a long period of time when we weren't friends. We didn't speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on. We've moved past that."

As for their current relationship status, another insider told E! News Baldwin would "happily be his girlfriend;" however, "there's no label."

"Hailey's always had a thing for Justin and wanted them to be together….She would happily be his girlfriend and would like something more serious and long term," the second source added. "They've always had a lot of fun together. This time things have just happened and they are both single and in the same place. They are both very involved with church and have a friendship and history together that makes it easy and comfortable. They can always pick up right where they left off. They are both just going with it for now and spending a lot of time together having fun. There's no label; they just like being together." 

It wasn't that long ago Mendes and Baldwin spurred their own romance rumors after walking the red together at the 2018 Met Gala. However, Mendes confirmed he's single.
