Justin Bieber described Kourtney Kardashian as 'great' in a new interview as he addressed rumours he enjoyed a romance with the reality TV star

Ever since Justin Bieber posted that picture of what fans speculated was Kourtney Kardashian getting to close to the Sorry singer on the bonnet or a sports car, rumours have been flying that Biebs and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had enjoyed a fling.

And, despite the girl in the picture turning out to be a mystery blonde, the Biebs has added fuel to the speculation fire by commenting on the rumours for the first time.

In a pre-recorded interview that aired on US radio this morning, Justin replied to a question about the alleged fling by quipping: ‘I’m being used, man, what can I say?’

Which left us wondering What Do U Mean, Justin!?

But when host Bert Weiss asked if there was ‘anything there’, Justin seemed keen to move the conversation on, saying: ‘Nah, we’ll leave it at that.’

He later added: ‘No, no, but for real, she’s great. I’ve known [the family] for years.’

A report last month report from US magazine implied that the pair have been ‘been hooking up since late August, early September’, adding ‘it’s been a deep flirtation for months. He’s obviously close to the family, and Kris [Jenner] is obsessed with him’.

However, Kourtney took to Instagram recently to share a cryptic message alluding to some type of heartache. The post read: ‘The prettiest eyes have cried the most tears’.

The snap caused a divide in fans over who Kourt has aimed the post at, with many believing it to be a message about estranged husband Scott Disick.

But others reckon the message is about JB, who has been photographed with model Hailey Baldwin several times lately – and even posted a snap of them enjoying a snog over the weekend that appeared to confirm they were a couple.

We can barely keep up!
