Throughout his very successful and highly-publicized career, Justin Bieber has openly struggled with substance abuse and emotional issues. Now, Bieber's manager Scooter Braun revealed just how bad things got for the star.
As a guest on 'The Red Pill' podcast, Braun spoke of his fears for Bieber, saying, “There was a time where I would go to sleep almost every night, when he had money to fly away from me, and I was worried every night that I was gonna lose him,” Braun revealed in the interview.
“There was the time where I was telling him he’s not allowed to work. He used to yell and scream at me. He wanted to put music out, he wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die. I just refused. I didn’t want him to work because I wanted him to get healthy. I thought he was going to die…thought he was going to go to sleep one night and have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning. I’d try to monitor him from a distance and would fly after him at times,” Braun said.
The star's manager went on to explain that all of his attempts to help Bieber failed, until the star himself decided it was time to turn his life around. Turning to his religious faith and new fiancé Hailey Baldwin, Bieber looks happier than ever before.
