Justin Bieber may have recently insisted he’s too busy for girls , but he seems to have found time in his schedule for one lucky girl. The pop star was reportedly snapped kissing his “Baby” video co-star and current My World Tour opening act, Jasmine Villegas.
While the pair have been romantically linked for some time now, both have denied a romance. Photos of the pair caught in a lip lock were posted on TMZ on Tuesday (September 21), and it may be the evidence Bieber’s fans needed to confirm the two are more than just friends. According to TMZ, the photo was snapped on September 9 in Venice, California, around the same time Bieber landed in Los Angeles for his VMA appearance.
Although the photos of the pair in the backseat of a Honda were taken weeks ago, they only recently surfaced online. According to TMZ, they were taken by a Canadian tourist who spotted the singers. A rep for Bieber could not be reached for comment.
Villegas, 16, is currently on the road with Bieber, but fans may also recognize her from her guest turn as his love interest in the bowling-themed video for “Baby.” Recently signed to Sony, Villegas was once a member of the girl group School Gyrls. She also has cameos in Bieber and Sean Kingston’s “Eenie Meenie” video and Kanye West’s for “Jesus Walks.” The teen singer also has two solo videos of her own: one for “I Own This” and the other for “Serious.”
When asked about his relationship status this month, Bieber told MTV News, “I mean, girlfriends are trouble at this age. Girls are fun to hang out with but, like, having that one steady girl … we’re constantly traveling and one girl’s not gonna really [work]. You can’t really have one girl. I don’t really have any crushes at the moment. … Right now, the best thing is [that we're] just teenagers having fun doing what we love. We’re just staying ourselves and remaining humble.”
