Was Justin Bieber just caught on tape yelling at his wife, Hailey Baldwin? That seems to be the question on everyone’s minds after a video of the singer went viral that showed him saying something to her very intensely after his performance in Las Vegas over the weekend.
Some Fans Are Not Happy With Justin Bieber
After the video — which was originally posted to TikTok but has since been deleted by the original poster — was shared online, fans quickly reposted it all over social media and flooded the comment section with their reactions to his behavior. Since it was very loud in the clip, it’s hard to make out exactly what Bieber was saying to Baldwin, but he has come under fire for the way he appeared to speak to the super model. While some people are convinced he was just venting about something else he was upset about, others think the musician was saying something mean to Baldwin, and they’re not here for it.
“He doesn’t love her, it’s so sad,” one fan wrote, with another adding, “That poor girl! I pray he doesn’t hit her.”

“I know he ain’t yelling at her like that and nobody gonna say something?” a third person commented. “All of those men are of concern.”
Others Are Defending Him
Some people, on the other hand, have taken to Twitter to defend Bieber. Some eye-witnesses even came forward and claimed that they were there when it happened, and that he was definitely not yelling at Baldwin.
“He was not yelling and we were there to witness what went down. He was all adrenaline. It doesn’t matter how the f**k it ‘appears’ to you. Dont spread false information on someone especially when you acknowledge that’s just what it appears to you. That’s defamation of character,” one user said. “He had just gotten off stage at the club and was hype and had all this adrenaline. They were both smiling and laughing but of course that’s not the part of the video that gets posted. Stop twisting things.

They continued, “I took this of Justin right before that video was taken. He was on STRAIGHT adrenaline from performing. He wasn’t mad at Hailey and he wasn’t yelling at her. I hate how he’s always painted as the bad guy when he’s the furthest thing from it.”

“My friends and I were with/behind him the whole night, he was in the best mood and was telling her a story but ofc internet lames love their lil scenarios,” another fan claimed.

This Isn’t The First Time He Allegedly Yelled At Hailey Baldwin
It turns out, this isn’t the first time Bieber appeared to yell at his wife on tape. Back in February 2020, he was slammed online after a video came out of him screaming at the blonde beauty after she beat him at an arcade game.
“I wasn’t trying,” he could be heard screaming, to which she replied, “I beat you, accept it!”
So not only does Justin slam the door on Hailey as she gets out of the car, he also acts like a raging lunatic when she beats him in an arcade game. Other couples could never!! pic.twitter.com/VJTZGf8Tzf— Sam 🌟 #FreePalestine 🇵🇸 (@CorneliaSt13th) February 16, 2020
There’s also an old clip of him accidentally slamming the door on Baldwin as she tried to exit a car, which can be seen here.
“I understand that he might’ve been excited here but he’s had history of actually yelling/being obnoxious to her, so I wouldn’t put it past him,” one person pointed out while discussing the new video.

He’s Previously Opened Up About Their Marriage Struggles
Earlier this year, the “Baby” crooner admitted that his first year of marriage to Baldwin was “really tough” in an explosive interview with GQ Magazine. He got real about how his “traumatic” past and “lack of trust” made their relationship very difficult at first.
For those who forgot, the two stars met all the way back in 2009. They briefly dated in 2015 but then went their separate ways. But when they reconciled in 2018, they quickly realized that they were meant for one another. They got engaged one month later — in July 2018 — and then, they tied the knot in September of the same year. Everyone thought their love was picture perfect, TBH, but Bieber just revealed that at first, he was “walking on eggshells” around his wife.
“The first year of marriage was really tough,” he admitted. “Because there was a lot, going back to the trauma stuff. There was just lack of trust. There was all these things that you don’t want to admit to the person that you’re with, because it’s scary. You don’t want to scare them off by saying, ‘I’m scared.’”
According to Bieber, things are much better between them now, however. He continued, “[Now], we’re just creating these moments for us as a couple, as a family, that we’re building these memories. And it’s beautiful that we have that to look forward to. Before, I didn’t have that to look forward to in my life. My home life was unstable. Like, my home life was not existing. I didn’t have a significant other. I didn’t have someone to love. I didn’t have someone to pour into. But now I have that. Hurt people hurt people — you know? And there’s a quote; I’m trying to remember it. I don’t know if it’s biblical, if it’s in the Bible. But I do remember this quote: ‘The comforted become the comforters.’ I don’t know if you’ve heard that before. But I really do feel comforted. I have a wife who I adore, who I feel comforted by. I feel safe. I feel like my relationship with God is wonderful. And I have this outpouring of love that I want to be able to share with people, you know?”
Baldwin also got real about how difficult marriage was for them while speaking to Vogue.
“The thing is, marriage is very hard,” she told the outlet. “That is the sentence you should lead with. It’s really effing hard. I love him very much. I have loved him for a long time. It’s just that I’m fighting to do this the right way, to build a healthy relationship. I want people to know that. We’re coming from a really genuine place. But we’re two young people who are learning as we go. I’m not going to sit here and lie and say it’s all a magical fantasy. It’s always going to be hard. It’s a choice. You don’t feel it every single day. You don’t wake up every day saying, ‘I’m absolutely so in love and you are perfect.’ That’s not what being married is. But there’s something beautiful about it anyway — about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone. We’re really young, and that’s a scary aspect. We’re going to change a lot. But we’re committed to growing together and supporting each other in those changes. That’s how I look at it. At the end of the day, too, he’s my best friend. I never get sick of him.”
