Justin Bieber admits in his docuseries that his drug use during his younger days had become “legit crazy scary”. Bieber also admits to taking pills and smoking cannabis when he was at the mere age of 13.
“People don’t know how serious it got,” he admits in the episode The Dark Season from docuseries Seasons.
“I was waking up in the morning and the first thing I was doing is popping pills and smoking a blunt and starting my day,” he added.
After cutting short his 2017 Purpose world tour, the Yummy singer was on hiatus to repair “some of the deep-rooted issues.” However, the 25-year-old singer made a promise to fans before Christmas that he will return with a new album and US tour in 2020.
Justin has been very vocal about his drug use and relationships in the past as well, but this documentary gives you a more intimate look into his personal life and struggles.
In the latest episode, Justin also admitted that when he had reached his lowest point he was scared his dependence on drugs would kill him. After binging on ecstasy and hallucinogenic mushrooms, Bieber admitted things got so bad forcing the members of his security team to check his pulse throughout the night to just make sure he was still breathing.
He further reveals the pressures of fame made him rely on harder drugs. “I was young, like everybody in the industry and people in the world who experiment and do normal, growing up things,” he shares.
“But my experience was in front of cameras and I had a different level of exposure. I had a lot of money and a lot of things.”
Bieber tied the knot with model Hailey Baldwin in 2018, twice! His now-wife Hailey Bieber shockingly revealed in the documentary that she chose not to get involved in Justin’s life until he “chose to get sober”.
Justin has also faced many legal issues for breaking the law; being charged with assault and careless driving.
The docuseries also showed how Bieber uses an oxygen chamber to help relieve stress, anxiety and depression. It’s also revealed Bieber works closely with a brain disorder specialist.
