Justin Bieber really likes recycling past girlfriends. First there was Selena Gomez, then Selena Gomez again, and now it's Hailey Baldwin. 

The two seemingly made their relationship official once again on Instagram over the weekend. And everyone knows, in 2018, nothing is real until it's verified via social media. 

BEHOLD:

Rumors that Bieber and Baldwin were back together started a few weeks ago, with photos of them making out around Brooklyn and attending church together making their rounds.

When the kissing photos came out last week, Bieber shared a photo with Baldwin's legs casually in the background, but this is the first time we've actually seen both of their faces together. In other words, they have nothing to hide anymore.

For what it's worth, when he and Gomez rekindled their relationship this past fall/winter, he never posted anything on Instagram. So, take that as you will.

In case you need a refresher on Bieber and Baldwin's PDA-filled relationship past, here's a closer look. Let's go all the way back to 2009, when they first met.

2009

Way back in 2009, Hailey's dad, Stephen Baldwin, introduced her and the Biebz for the first time. She looks petrified or just straight up not into it.

Despite their awkward first encounter, it seems that Biebz and Baldwin remained close enough for her to secure an invite to the NYC premiere of "Never Say Never."

Justin and Hailey were apparently seen having a "romantic dinner" at Mr. Chow in New York, then went to a movie and were seen returning to Bieber's residence. The next morning, they were spotted at a diner in Jersey. Rumors spread that they spent the night together, but according to Baldwin, those were just "stories."

A year later, Justin and Hailey went on a tropical vacation together. We know this because he actually posted photos of their adventure. It definitely seems like they're together for realsies at this point, but they're still telling everyone they're "just friends."

The two still haven't made things OFFICIAL, but Bieber goes ahead and posts this blurry photo of them making out like it's no big deal. Cue internet freak out.

Hailey tells E! that yes, she and Justin are dating, but no, it's not exclusive. Um. Ok. "We are not an exclusive couple," she said. "He's about to go on tour. Relationships at this age are already complicated, but I don't really like to talk about it because it's between me and him."

In a separate interview, Justin tells GQ that Hailey is "someone I really love," but that he doesn't "want to be held down by anything."

In August of 2016, all hell broke loose. Justin unfollowed Hailey on Instagram allegedly because he was jealous of her friendship with Drake. Meanwhile, rumors of a new relationship start flying around: Bieber and Sofia Richie. "Sources" say Richie made him unfollow Hailey. DRAMA.

Oh, and this all led his on-again, off-again lover Selena Gomez to chime in and eventually to the deletion of his Instagram account. These were truly dark times.

Two years went by with no contact and then, suddenly, they're spotted EVERYWHERE together: a church conference in Miami, Brooklyn's Domino Park, Starbucks, etc. We're not sure what led to the rekindling of Bieber and Baldwin's relationship, but our money is on him "officially" severing ties with Selena Gomez.
