In a sit down with Zane Lowe of Apple Music, Justin Bieber opened up a more personal side of his life, sharing a sneak peek in his relationship with his wife Hailey and at the same time admitting that he was wild and crazy during his relationship with Selena Gomez.
Bieber and his wife had been dating casually for years before they got serious back in 2016 and the singer owned up to the fact that he didn’t treat Hailey right at the time. The reason why he couldn’t commit to the relationship seriously is because of his on again-off again relationship with Selena Gomez which he said affected him even long after they’ve broken up.
The Canadian star also shared that he learned many things during his time with Selena and that led him to be able to treat Hailey right, stating that he wasn’t going to make the same mistake with his now-wife.
The Yummy singer shared that he was hurt from his previous relationship and that he thought he was still dealing with a huge amount of negativity during that time. He further explained that during his previous relationship with Selena, he would go off and went crazy and wild and was nothing short of reckless. Comparing to his current marriage with Hailey, the singer said that he is taking his time into really building himself as a person and make the correct decisions.
Selena, on the other hand, has projected her feelings regarding her breakup with Bieber via Rare, her album and explained in an interview with NPR that she went through emotional abuse. The singer-actress stated that it was unwise to continue having the victim mentality, saying that she wasn’t trying to be disrespectful, but was just stating the fact that she did feel she was a victim to a certain extent.
Justin also opened up about ‘abusing’ his past relationships in a lengthy Instagram post last September where he wrote that he became very resentful and angry towards women. But during his interview with Lowe, Bieber said that Hailey was the reason he was able to accept and resolve his past misgivings and move forward with his life.
Bieber also shared that trying to better himself as a person is the big reason why he’s come back better than ever and is successful. The Biebs also voiced out that his wife is the main reason why he has gotten better, that she is the one tying everything together and has been the reason why he’s learning how to love unconditionally and why he wants to start a family with her.
