Justin Bieber has sparked fresh speculation he is dating Barbara Palvin.

The Canadian heartthrob was first linked to the model after he performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2012. She was one of the event's runway stars and Justin posted a picture of them together backstage, with rumours he moved on with Barbara after his split from Selena Gomez.

Barbara quickly denied any romance on Twitter, but after the pair were spotted together in Cannes this week, new speculation has surfaced.

Both Justin and Barbara were guests at a yacht party held by fashion designer Roberto Cavalli on Wednesday and seemed thrilled to see each other. Several pictures of the pair have emerged, where they appear deep in conversation. Barbara is seen gazing deeply into Justin's eyes in one shot, as she reaches to touch his face.

In another she leans in to whisper into his ear, with the 20-year-old singer appearing attentive throughout.

Whether just friends or not, Justin seemed excited by the attention and was seen beaming as he left the bash.

Both stars were dressed to impress, with Justin opting for a white T-shirt and denim jacket over black culottes, with gold jewellery. Barbara - who previously dated One Direction's Niall Horan - went for a smarter look, showing off her slim figure in a flowing grey maxi-dress, which was low cut and beaded.


Justin has been having a great time in Cannes and has regularly updated his fans on his shenanigans. In one of his latest posts he poked fun at the hordes of photographers that follow him around, adding a picture that shows him fending off a group of snappers.

"Give me some space. I know I look fly but sh*t," he captioned it.

After they were first linked, Barbara was deluged with comments from Justin's fans, who weren't happy he had moved on from Selena with her. It got so bad she posted a message on Twitter attempting to clarify the situation.

"Hey everyone. please calm down. he is all yours!! :) please :)

“Last time I'm saying it. please calm down.there is nothing going on w him.i met him and did a pic w him. wouldn't u do the same?:) #friendship (sic)," she wrote.
