Justin Bieber has nothing but love for Kourtney Kardashian.
After the 21-year-old singer and the 36-year-old reality star sparked romance rumors
when they were spotted hanging out together late last month, Justin commented on the reports during a Dec. 17 interview with nationally syndicated radio program The Bert Show
, which airs Wednesday.
"I'm being used, man. What can I say?" Justin joked about the headlines, via People
When host Bert Weiss pressed, "Anything there?" he remained tight-lipped.
"Nah, we'll leave it at that," he said.
However, the "Sorry" singer did praise the mother-of-three. "No, no, but for real, she's great," Justin stressed. "I've known [the family] for years."
Romance reports between Kourtney and Justin
hit a fever pitch when she attended Justin's surprise show at celeb hot spot The Nice Guy in West Hollywood, California on Dec. 11, where a source told ET that the two "were nearly inseparable" throughout the night. Justin also Instagrammed a photo of the pair hanging out at Universal Studios Hollywood for its "Halloween Horror Nights" in October. Justin was walking with his arm around Kourtney
and joking with her about being scared, an onlooker told ET at the time.
"Kourtney wouldn't go there," the source added.
One person who did
go there is Selena Gomez, who Justin is clearly confident still cares for him. "She loves me," Justin boldly declared during the interview when asked about the deep feelings between him and his ex
. "No, I love her too, always."
Still, he couldn't resist taking a playful dig at Selena's handsome "Hands to Myself" music video love interest -- model Christopher Mason
-- when he's shown his picture.
"Who's this guy? He’s a joke! This guy's a chump," he cracked, before admitting, "I guess he's pretty handsome, I can't even lie."
"I love her, we're friends still," he later added about Selena, getting serious. "I think it's just, we needed time to grow for ourselves, and we're like, 'Maybe, we'll come back together in the future,' and then it ended up being like, so long, and we just grew apart and we're just not the same people anymore."
Judging by his Instagram, Justin has definitely moved on with 19-year-old Hailey Baldwin. On Sunday, he Instagrammed the most definitive proof yet that the two are more than friends, sharing a pic of the two engaged in a steamy kiss.
