At one point in his life, Justin Bieber was remembered as the dude who was always seen with different girls.
He revealed in an interview with Vogue that he was addicted to sex. He described it as "a legitimate problem with sex". He added, "I think sex can cause a lot of pain."
He also admitted to abusing Xanax between 2013 and 2014. He told the magazine, "I found myself doing things that I was so ashamed of, being super-promiscuous and stuff, and I think I used Xanax because I was so ashamed."
One such instance was his visit to a Brazilian brothel in November 2013. The singer left the brothel covered in bedsheets, but it was his unmistakeable tattoos that gave away his identities. He had reportedly spent more than three hours there and paid one of the women $500 for sex.
Up till recently, for about a year, he became celibate.
He said, "[God] doesn't ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff. He's like, I'm trying to protect you from hurt and pain. I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don't feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth."
Justin and Hailey have a long history, dating back to when they first met in 2009, but it wasn't until a few years ago that they started dating. But their relationship didn't last long and they had a bad breakup-Justin would even walk out of the room when Hailey stepped in.
In June 2018, they bumped into each other at a conference and rekindled their love. Within a month, Justin put a ring on her.
The couple got married secretly last year but hasn't had a wedding. It will reportedly be held at the end of February.
Justin explained that one of the reasons why he and Hailey rushed to get married because he wanted to have sex with her.
But, of course, it wasn't the only reason.
He said, "When I saw her last June, I just forgot how much I loved her and how much I missed her and how much of a positive impact she made on my life. I was like, Holy cow, this is what I've been looking for."
