During an interview on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast last month, Hailey clarified for the first time that there was no “overlap” between her and Gomez’s relationship with the Canadian native. “This is so crazy, I’ve literally never talked about this. A lot of hate and perpetuation comes from that [people thinking], like, ‘Oh, you stole it.’ It’s about people knowing the truth. Because there is truth,” she explained.
Hailey also revealed that she and Gomez have spoken privately in the years since she married Justin. “That’s why I’m like, it’s all respect, it’s all love,” she said. “So I also feel like if everybody on our side knows what happened and we’re good and we can walk away from it with clarity and respect, then that’s fine. … Which brought me a lot of peace and I’m like, ‘We know what happened, it is what it is.’ You will never be able to correct every narrative.”

“Hailey felt she needed to address that elephant in the room and come clean about how she and Justin got together, she’s moved on now and doesn’t want to deal with it,” the source continued. “She doesn’t want to hurt Selena herself, but it was important to let her know that she experienced some horrible abuse and that it wasn’t okay to treat her like that and it never will be.”
Her meeting with Gomez comes just less than three weeks after the podcast aired. Check out photos of the two at the Academy Museum ceremony below:
