Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima has responded to rumours that she was romantically involved with Canadian singer Justin Bieber. The Victoria's Secret angel denied that she dated Selena Gomez's former boyfriend.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked the 34-year-old model if she spent time with Bieber. She responded: "Let me tell, you, OK I'm gonna tell you this. Anybody below 6'7, you know how I call them? Friends."

In May 2014, Us Weekly had reported that Lima and the Baby hitmaker got close while at a 1 Oak party at the Cannes Film Festival. She had freshly split from former NBA player Marko Jarić at that time.

Gomez had gushed about Lima at the prestigious Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 that took place on 10 November in New York City. The former Disney star wore blue contacts at the event.

The 23-year-old revealed she was inspired by Lima for her eye makeover. She told E! News: "I was genuinely inspired by Adriana. I love her, she is one of my favorite models. Every since I can remember, I adore her and I got to geek out in front of her today, which was awesome so the idea was to feel like an angel, I wanted to feel like a VS angel, so I got the spray tan, the blow out, the look with the eyes."
