In a new interview with the Sunday Times, Hails explained that she and JB's friendship actually goes wayyyy back.
"I met him when I was really young and he was one of my best friends," Hailey explained. "Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you’re 18, 19. It was what it was."
She also explained that while there was a period of time that they weren't friends, they've "moved past that" now.
Good for them.
For Hailey, of being in a "high-profile relationship" with him made her learn a lot.
"It brought both of us to the realisation that we just work much better as friends," she told the Times.
"He’s somebody I really cherish. Now it’s a very mature situation. It’s good."
