Wendy Williams did not hold back when weighing in on the curiously quick Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin engagement, and she unloaded on the couple during Monday’s episode of her talk show.

The TV personality pointed out that Hailey’s father, Stephen Baldwin, is going through financial issues, so the engagement would be good to help keep the Baldwin dynasty relevant.

“Listen he’s 24, she’s 21,” Williams said. “Stephen Baldwin is her father … who’s had money issues, so you know this is a little cash grab, I guess.”

She also speculated Bieber is a little “lost” and pointed out his complicated “love thang” between Baldwin and Selena Gomez.

Justin and Selena have been off and on for years. During one of the breakups, Bieber hooked up with Baldwin (around 2014.) However, Gomez and Bieber recently broke up (again) in May. Now he’s engaged to Hailey.

“I don’t think this marriage will last,” Williams explained on her show Monday.

“Look, right after the honeymoon, he’s doing a driveby at Selena’s.”

“I wasn’t shocked,” she said. “I mean, maybe a little shocked again and I do care.”

Williams explained that a one “shady person” in their “Hot Topics” meeting said that Bieber probably had the ring for awhile and was going to either give it to Baldwin or Gomez.

“He broke up with Selena in May and so now here we are in July and he’s engaged,” Williams said. “And she found out while she was on a boat with her friends and she tried to play it cool by smiling and stuff.”

“If I were her I would be hurt,” Williams said. “Not necessarily because I wouldn’t be married to Justin Bieber, but because okay so the two of us we were back — like I would prefer he got engaged to a third party.”

Williams stressed that Baldwin is “way too young” to get married and that Bieber has lived enough lives to be 44.
