Scooter Braun, the manager of Justin Bieber is making headlines with his latest interview in which he said that he once thought that the pop star would die. The 37-year-old manager of Bieber spoke out about the pop star’s past during an interview on Van Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast.
In the discussion issued on Wednesday, Braun went candid about the 24-year-old singer, saying, “I thought he was going to die.”
“I 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.” he added. “There was a time where I would go to sleep almost every night, when he had the money to fly away from me, and I was worried every night that I was going to lose him.”
Bieber, who recently got engaged to his 21-year-old lady love Hailey Baldwin, is living a healthier lifestyle, all because of his determination, according to Braun.
Braun said on The Red Pill, “I think that he made a conscious choice for himself to change.” He went on to say, “It wasn’t until one day he woke up and said, ‘Hey, I need to talk to you. I don’t want to be this person anymore.’ He made the decision to change and actually put that into action. The result is who he’s become today.”
Bieber had a treatment for shortness of breath during a show, the singer lunged at a cameraman in March 2013. A source told People at the time, “He’s wildin’ out. On a scale of hot sauce, he’s a mild, but his money is so hot, it can get him anything.”
Police raided the singer’s tour bus on the very next month in Sweden and seized drugs. Police raided on Bieber’s home back in January 2014 after the singer reportedly threw eggs at his neighbor’s house.
The “Love Yourself” singer got arrest for DUI in Miami weeks later. A spokesperson for Miami Beach Police said at the time, “Mr. Bieber made a statement that he had consumed some alcohol and that he had been smoking marijuana and had consumed some prescription medication.”
A source told People back in 2014, “The people close to him try, but he’s a mess.” The source continued, “He acts as though he’s never heard the word ‘no’ and he thinks he’s God.”
Braun opened up about the singer’s behavior while speaking on Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast. “I think Justin is an extraordinary young man who has been given an extraordinary life, and because of that he cannot complain that he’s held to extraordinary standards,” the pop star’s manager continued. “He used to complain, he used to fight it, and that’s kind of what got him into a dark place.”
“But when he accepted his responsibility and took a hard look at himself and not what everyone else was doing, that’s when he owned it, and he got healthy, and he got better, and he made the choice to change,” Braun added.
