In an interview on the “Red Pill Podcast” Wednesday, Scooter Braun expressed how concerned he was during the darkest days in Justin Bieber’s career.
He said, “There was a time when 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,” … I thought he was going to die. I thought he was going to sleep one night and that he would have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning.”
Braun said, he faced a lot of resentment from Bieber as he encouraged him to get healthy. He did everything in his power to advocate for Bieber’s recovery. He said he thwarted all music releases and tours. Braun continued, “He used to yell and scream at me, and he wanted to put music out, he wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die. So, I just refused.”
Braun’s admission comes just a week after Mac Miller was found dead in his Studio City home due to a suspected overdose.
America is facing its biggest drug crisis right now, which is endlessly being glorified within the music industry. It takes a lot of courage and sacrifice for a manager, who profits from his artist’s success, to make a choice to guide an artist away from self-destructive behavior.
Luckily, Justin Bieber was surrounded by good people who fought him every step of the way to get sober.Contests by Rewards Fuel
