Over the weekend, actor Stephen Baldwin was tracked down by a TMZ crew and questioned on his daughter’s relationship with Justin Bieber. The actor said he approved of “Mr. Beiber” but the two are “just friends.”

Baldwin went on to praise the young musician and his bright future. “Mr. Bieber is a wonderful young man, hugely talented, got a whole lot more success ahead of him,” Baldwin said.

Romance rumors sparked when Bieber posted some steamy shots of the two on his personal Instagram. Baldwin joined the singer and his family on vacation. One of the photos even showed the two kissing. Perhaps it was just an innocent NYE kiss.
