Justin Bieber‘s rumored girlfriend Jacque Rae Pyles is opening up about their relationship. The two were first spotted together earlier this month at New York Fashion Week and shortly after that they were snapped as they boarded a private jet bound for Las Vegas.
When asked by E! News if she considered Justin a friend or mentor, Jacque answered carefully. “That’s a hard question. Maybe mentorship,” she said. “Just because of where his career is at, and where mine is at, he’s definitely helpful and everything.”
The two have been friends for awhile, having met when they were barely teens. “Well I’ve actually known him since I was 14. I’m 19 now, so it’s been five years,” she said.
“We met because I was in a girl group for Nick Cannon called School Girls and he was in the movie that we were filming, so from there we just became friends and hung out a lot, and it’s just been growing since,” she continued.
When asked, Jacque did confirm that she is currently single, “I am,” she said, and then and then revealed what she looks for in a boyfriend.
“You know I just like someone with a sense of humor,” she said. “Someone that can make me laugh. Like if I’m down, they can just lift my spirits and make everything better.”
