Justin Bieber Explains Relationship With Hailey Baldwin on New ‘GQ’ Cover

This month’s GQ cover is graced by Justin Bieber, arguably looking more dapper than ever before.

The cover story, which comes out tomorrow (Feb. 11), finds Bieber explaining the real back-story behind his current Billboard Hot 100 No. 3 single (and former No. 1) “Sorry.”

The brief snippet GQ offered of Bieber’s clarification of “Sorry” has him saying, “People ran with that — that I was like, apologizing with that song and stuff. It really had nothing to do with that… It was about a girl.”

Speaking of girls, Bieber told GQ about his connection with Hailey Baldwin: “[She’s] someone I really love. We spend a lot of time together.”

Deputy terminated after having relationship with mistress of Deputy Goforth

A deputy who had a relationship with the mistress of Deputy Darren Goforth has been terminated, according to Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman.

The deputy, identified as Marc De Leon, had a relationship with the woman before Goforth was allegedly shot and killed by Shannon Miles in 2015.

The deputy was recently terminated after it was discovered he was having the relationship with the woman while on the job. The termination has no connection to the Goforth death investigation.

“The leader of any organization would highly embarrassed for the conduct of an officer that would lead up to termination due to some kind of relationship,” Sheriff Ron Hickman told KPRC 2 News.

For the second time, Sheriff Ron Hickman is having to address the firing of an employee over a relationship with a woman who was there the night Goforth was killed. As Channel 2 investigates reported, this woman was also in a relationship with Goforth.

Hickman said he does not believe his department has a pervasive problem, but just last week the Sheriff’s Office did have to draft a formal policy prohibiting deputies from having relationships with people connected to criminal cases. Hickman admits the policy was a direct result of these latest debacles.
