Sushi and conversation, perhaps? According to UsMagazine.com, Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner were spotted having dinner with their friend Hailey Baldwin on Monday, April 28th at the Nobu 57 in midtown Manhattan. The source went on to say the casual date lasted for about two hours and was filled with sushi rolls and miso soup. Afterwards, Bieber was the first to leave, and then Baldwin, the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, and Jenner dispersed. All of this comes shortly after the mini dispute that made headlines between the 20-year-old singer’s ex Selena Gomez and Jenner sisters. Following their Coachella hangout, Gomez unfollowed her “BFFs” and on-again-off-again boyfriend on Instagram without any explanation. “Selena said the Jenner girls were flirting with Justin and his crew. She was pissed and overracted,” an insider told Us in the May 12 issue. Another source said, “They had an issue but they have cleared it up. [Selena] has always liked the Jenner girls. They had been fans of Selena since they were young.”

Cupid’s Advice:

Opinions of others and outside drama can have a certainly have a way of tainting the relationship if you and your partner do not know how to avoid it. Cupid has a few tips on how to steer clear of the drama:

1. Keep away: Do not put you and your partner in environments or situations where you may begin to question your relationship just because of what others may have said.
