Meet Justin Bieber's Latest Belle: Jacque Rae Pyles [PHOTOS]
Canadian crooner, Justin Bieber has officially moved on from ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez. The "Baby" singer is obviously happy and in love with his latest belle, Jacque Rae Pyles. In a recent interview, Jacque opens up about her relationship with Justin. Here's all there is to know.
After months of seeing Bieber jump from one model to the next, it appears as if Justin has found a friend and a potential long lasting love in Jacque Rae Pyles. Who exactly is Jacque Rae? "Beliebers" would easily recognize her as Justin's childhood friend.
"Well I've actually known him since I was 14. I'm 19 now, so it's been five years," said Jacque in an interview with E! Online.
Back when Justin was still making a name for himself as the youngest YouTube sensation, Jacque and Justin rubbed elbows quite a lot.
"We met because I was in a girl group for Nick Cannon called School Girls and he was in the movie that we were filming, so from there we just became friends and hung out a lot, and it's just been growing since" recalled Pyles.
After Jacque was spotted boarding Justin's private plane to watch Floyd Mayweather's fight, the dating speculation began. The two were again spotted in the Bahamas enjoying a gall of a great time in each other's company.
"Recently we got to go to the Bahamas and it was like a private island. It was absolutely incredible - hands down the best week of my life. There was a group of us and every day was something new. They had jet skis for us, so we would go out on the jet skis a lot, swam with sharks. There was an island next to us that had pigs that swam, so we would go play with the pigs and everything. We just had a lot of fun. We were just kids playing, basically," said Jacque in a report by Pop Crush.
What exactly is the real deal between the two "friends?" According to Pyles, their relationship is more on "mentorship" but there could be a shot at romance.
"Just because of where his career is at, and where mine is at, he's definitely helpful and everything," explained Rae, adding, "You know I just like someone with a sense of humor. Someone that can make me laugh. Like if I'm down, they can just lift my spirits and make everything better."
