In Billie’s new documentary, she speaks about the night of Coachella, where she met Justin for the first time and recalled a very emotional message he sent her following their first encounter.
Reading out the message to her family, it read: “It’s moments like tonight where I’m reminded what I mean to people.
“Your love for me touched my heart. You are so special, not for what you can do, but for who you are. Remember that. I am so impressed by your aura and presence. ‘You carry a heavy calling. You are an idol to so many. I’m excited to watch you flourish. You are beyond special. Thank you for tonight, it meant just as much to me as it meant to you.
“I also want to let you know that it feels like yesterday [that] I was 15 singing One Time and now I’m 25 and that was 10 years ago and it flew by like a flash. Enjoy every minute of what you are experiencing. Embrace it all, believe you are great, but not greater than anyone," Brb, we’re still sobbing.
They have spoken about each other countless times since meeting, with the ‘Peaches’ star always explaining how talented and special Billie is.
There has been speculation about whether or not Justin and Billie were romantically involved, but they have never been any more than close pals!
Justin is married to Hailey Baldwin, whilst he and Billie boast a super wholesome friendship, as JB has continued to support her music career.
