The 17-year-old model laughed off the speculation and controversy in a series of Snapchats posted on Tuesday, where she sang one of her rumored flame's songs -- specifically, Bieber's new track with DJ Snake, "Let Me Love You."
She also dismissed rumors that she hopped on Twitter to comment on Bieber's recent feud with ex-girlfriends Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin, explaining that she doesn't even have a Twitter account.
Richie also spent the day with another celeb who was at the center of quite a bit of relationship drama last year -- Chloe Bartoli.
The 26-year-old fashion stylist found herself in the headlines after rumors spread that she fooled around with Scott Disick and lead to his break up with Kourtney Kardashian in July 2015. Bartoli has frequently designed for and styled Richie in a number of recent photo shoots.
Richie and Bieber, 22, sparked romance rumors recently when the pop star posted tons of pics showing the two hanging out in Japan.
Upon returning to the States, Bieber threatened to make his Instagram account private due to the deluge of hateful comments directed toward Richie from angry Beliebers, and also sparred with his exes via pointed comments on social media. After trying to calm the vitriol, Bieber ended up deleting his Instagram account all together.
