“They” — the devoted “Jelena” fans — erupted in response to a Twitter photo of Palvin and Bieber posing together, causing the young model to clear the air and explain that her run-in with Bieber was a mere innocent fan moment.
“I wanted to meet him real bad,” she told us. “I watched his movie [Justin Bieber: Never Say Never] and I was like, ‘He’s such a cool kid, I want to meet him.’ And then when I did at the [Victoria’s Secret] show we met and of course we had a conversation and then I took the picture with him.”
Just days later the two fueled the romance fire when they were spotted catching The Lion King on Broadway. According to Palvin, it was anything but a date.
“It was my sister’s first time in New York and we so wanted to go to Broadway, but there were no more tickets,” she explained. “I just came up and was telling him, ‘My sister is here, but she’s sad because we can’t go to Broadway, no more tickets.’ And he was like, ‘Well, I can get you one.’ And his friends came . . . like six people and then me, my sister and agent. So friends.”
