The supermodel Hailey Bieber recently opened up about dealing with her husband Justin Bieber and using the experience of her own father’s addiction that helped in the recovery of Justin Bieber.
“There’s a lot of addiction that runs in my family, not even just my dad, but a lot of other people on that side of my family struggle with a lot of different things,” Hailey Bieber told in the podcast Victoria’s Secret Voices.
“My dad was always really open about [his addiction] and I always appreciated that … He was always extremely open about why being sober worked for him and why we needed to be sober and what alcoholic behavior looks like, and why that comes out.”
“I was never somebody who struggled with any substances,” Hailey said. “That was because I was so aware of it because of my dad. He had a really big issue with cocaine and I was like, I’m never trying it because I was so scared that if I tried it one time it might lead into something else.”
Hailey Bieber said that this experience helped her to understand and analyze the journey of Justin Bieber towards sobriety.
That experience, she said, helped her navigate Justin’s journey toward sobriety. “When I was talking before about working on a lot of stuff when we first got married, I think that was a part of it too,” she explained. “Looking back on times of drug use and being in some dark spaces and having to kind of go back there was extremely difficult.”
Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber married in the year 2018. The couple has been always in the limelight. Hailey Bieber says that her “Christian faith” helped her to find “empathy” for social media trolling.
“I think about it a lot because something what tends to happen all the time when you’re in the public eye is that people kind of invent who they think you are,” she explains. “I think a lot of people don’t have a lot of empathy for people in the public eye. I do think when people are like, ‘Well she asked for this,’ that’s actually not true because I didn’t ask for grown men to follow me around with cameras and harass me and invade my space and ask me really invasive questions and make me feel unsafe. I didn’t ask for that. Nobody wants that.”
Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber married in the year 2018 in a private ceremony. This marriage took place in a courthouse in New York. The couple tied the knot officially after around two months of announcing their engagement.
