Justin Bieber, 27, has made the surprising revelation that his first year of marriage to Hailey Baldwin wasn’t an easy one, saying that it “was really tough,” in an interview for his May 2021 GQ cover story.
“Because there was a lot going back to the trauma” he had suffered from becoming a worldwide pop star at such a young age. “There was just a lack of trust. There were all these things that you don’t want to admit to the person that you’re with, because it’s scary. You don’t want to scare them off by saying, ‘I’m scared.,” he admits.
The couple wed in a New York courthouse on Sept. 13, 2018, after getting back together just four months prior. Justin Bieber got engaged to Hailey Baldwin in July 2018, less than two months into their rekindled romance and after he had hit a low point mentally and emotionally.
But his Sept. 2018 marriage to Hailey Baldwin and his strong faith in God — which she also shares — helped lift him up to a better place. Justin Bieber admitted that Hailey wouldn’t get involved with him until he “chose to get sober.” The “Holy” singer explains how he feels so “comforted” by his two and a half year marriage to the 24-year-old model.
