Justin Bieber’s music career has been through a lot of ups and downs. The Canadian songbird-songwriter has been a sensation for the juvenility since the time he got his finding back in 2009. But, with all the authority and limelight, the 23-year-old has also gone through really tough times during the period between 2013 and 2014. Recently in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Bieber’s superintendent and close friend Scooter Braun opened up about singer’s disgraceful 2014 DUI arrest and the following decline of his career.
Scooter, who discovered the Canadian pop-singer at the age of just 12, revealed that Justin’s breakdown “was graver than people realized,” adding, “I failed him day after day. We were growing in hell because he was in such a gloomy place.”
Justin’s arrest on surmise of driving under the influence, not only damaged his image but his relationship with his long-time manager Scooter also took an unconventional turn after this. Talking about this matter he said that while Justin lived a classified life he was struggling with very serious personal problems, Scooter admitted: “Justin’s stuff got to a point where it was a problem.”
Scooter told WSJ that the singer tried pushing him away as he started getting out of control. “Our relationship really struggled, but I started to learn things that made me a better man,” he said, adding, “When the time came and Justin needed the resources to get back on track, I wanted to make sure I was a rock and someone he could turn to.”
Scooter, who also manages Kanye West, Ariana Grande and other big-name performers played an essential role in helping Bieber coming back in the industry and back on top. Justin Bieber’s comeback ‘Purpose’ was a big success which also included a highly successful World tour.
The 36-year-old Scooter Braun further added,” He’s family. I think the analogy is more like a big sib, especially because he’s become a man. I made a promise to him when he was 13 that I would never give up on him. I plan on keeping that promise. I think he’s seen the worst of himself, and to watch him rise out of it was amazing. He developed my life. He is the best in the business.”
A lot of people in the industry thought that Bieber’s vocation was over and that he won’t be able to heal. Braun said that it was his years-old pledge that kept him dependable to his most famous client who was getting worse day by day.
Clearly, Justin Bieber went through an obscure phase and came out better on the other side of it. Some changes were made which has helped him a lot. Earlier in April, Bieber posted a photo on his Instagram of his flagon shot and wrote to his fans, “Thank God I am not where I used to be.”
Scooter Braun feels the same way.
