Justin Bieber’s Manager Says He Once Feared Singer Would Die from ‘So Much Crap in His System’

Scooter Braun says that he once thought Justin Bieber would die in his sleep.

The music manager, 37, opened up about the “What Do You Mean?” singer’s dark past in a wide-ranging interview on Van Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast.

“I thought he was going to die,” Braun said candidly about Bieber, 24, in the discussion released Wednesday. “I thought he was going to go to sleep one night and have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning.”

Braun explained, “There was a time where 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.”

Braun said he tried to save Bieber by keeping him from his music. “That was the time where I was telling him he’s not allowed to work,” Braun recalled. “And he used to yell and scream at me. He wanted to put music out, he wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die. So I just refused. We weren’t making any money … I didn’t want him to work because I wanted him to get healthy.”

Braun says that Bieber, who is engaged to Hailey Baldwin, is now in a much healthier place, all thanks to Bieber’s own determination. “I think that he made a conscious choice for himself to change,” Braun shared. “It wasn’t until one day he woke up and said, ‘Hey, I need to talk to you. I don’t want to be this person anymore.’ He made the decision to change and actually put that into action. The result is who he’s become today.”

In March 2013, after a week in which Bieber was treated for shortness of breath mid-show and lunged at a photographer, a source told PEOPLE, “He’s wildin’ out. On a scale of hot sauce, he’s a mild, but his money is so hot, it can get him anything.”

The next month, police raided Bieber’s tour bus in Sweden and confiscated drugs.

Then, in January 2014, Bieber’s home was raided by police after he allegedly threw eggs at a neighbor’s house.

Weeks later, he was arrested in Miami for DUI. “Mr. Bieber made a statement that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and had consumed some prescription medication,” a Miami Beach Police spokesperson said at the time.

“The people close to him try, but he’s a mess,” an industry source told PEOPLE in 2014. “He acts as though he’s never heard the word ‘no’ and he thinks he’s God.”

Speaking on Lathan’s The Red Pill podcast, Braun reflected on the scrutiny Bieber’s behavior received. “I think Justin is an extraordinary young man who has been given an extraordinary life, and because of that he cannot complain that he’s held to extraordinary standards,” Braun said. “He used to complain, he used to fight it, and that’s kind of what got him into a dark place.”

Braun continued, “But when he accepted his responsibility and took a hard look at himself and not what everyone else was doing, that’s when he owned it, and he got healthy, and he got better, and he made the choice to change.”

Justin Bieber’s Manager Scooter Braun Shows Off the Home Ellen DeGeneres Convinced Him to Buy

Hollywood talent manager and record-label boss Scooter Braun knows a star when he sees one — he works with Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Kanye West — but it was another pair of famous friends that led him to his stunning Montecito, California, home, while it was still a diamond in the rough.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi (rather forcefully) convinced Braun, 36, and his then-girlfriend Yael Cohen, 31, to go house hunting during a fateful lunch in 2014.

The spouses endlessly talked up the seaside town, Braun tells Architectural Digest in the magazine’s March issue. “We were like, ‘We’re not going to buy a house.’ We weren’t even married yet!” But, he recalls, “when we got back to their house afterward, there was a broker waiting for us.”

(Serial renovators DeGeneres and de Rossi have since listed a stunning $ 45 million estate in nearby Santa Barbara, and picked up a new place in Montecito, which was struck by deadly mudslides in January.)

Braun and Cohen fell for the third place they visited: a six-bedroom, 7,000-square-foot home originally built in 1916. “As soon as we pulled into the driveway, between all those trees, we kind of instantly knew that we were going to buy it,” says Braun.

The couple has since married and welcomed two sons, Jagger Joseph, 3, and Levi Magnus, 1.

With help from two of DeGeneres’s go-to decorators Kathleen and Tommy Clement, who also worked on Jennifer Aniston’s Bel Air home, they upgraded every inch of the house and the surrounding landscape, which now features myriad outdoor entertaining areas and two fire pits.

“I’m obsessed with fire pits,” Braun tells AD, “and that’s because some of the best concerts I’ve been to in my life have been around them. I can’t tell you how many times our friends have sat down to sing and play at the piano in the living room, but the real fun happens around the fire pits. We literally sit around and jam.” And, he notes not so subtly, “we are fortunate enough to know a couple of people who can really sing.”

Tyga Spotted Stepping Out With Justin Bieber’s Old Flame In West Hollywood

It’s only been a few weeks since Tyga and Kylie Jenner reportedly “took a break” from their relationship — again — but the rapper already seems to seeking some comfort elsewhere. He was caught Thursday night in photos published by TMZ stepping out with onetime Justin Bieber date Jordan Ozuna at a West Hollywood restaurant.  

Tyga hasn’t said a word so far, but Ozuna jumped on Twitter Friday to insist the two are not dating. 

Some people on Twitter didn’t seem to be buying it:

Tyga, 27, and Jenner, 19, began dating in 2014 and took their first break a year later. They last hit a rough patch when Jenner’s brother Rob Kardashian started dating Tyga’s ex Blac Chyna (and the two later became parents to Dream Kardashian).

Tyga and Jenner haven’t been photographed together since March. Both partied separately at Coachella.

The reality show makeup queen, however, did post a Snapchat video early this month lip-syncing to Tyga’s new single “Act Ghetto,” which includes the lyrics: “Gettin’ checks like Kylie / Yeah, every day I do it.”

But just before the TMZ shots emerged, an Instagram fan account posted a Snap of her in bed, declaring: “Haven’t left this position in 25 hours.”

Stay tuned.

Justin Bieber’s Team Insist Calvin Klein Ads Weren’t Photoshopped, Threaten Lawsuit

Justin Bieber was recently revealed as the new Marky Mark, a.k.a. the new face of Calvin Klein. But now there are claims that the photos of a bulky Biebs in his underwear were Photoshopped.

Website BreatheHeavy.com released the allegedly unretouched photo of Bieber as a GIF, which suggests that his muscles, bulge and hands have been increased in size. An image from a behind-the-scenes video also shows him with less body hair than in the official ads.

Bieber’s team has denied any use of Photoshop on the ads, according to a letter obtained by TMZ claiming that the photo from BreatheHeavy is fake. His team also apparently sent BreatheHeavy a cease-and-desist letter, requesting them to remove the GIF and admit to falsehood. The website has since responded, deleting the image from Instagram, apologizing to Bieber and retracting their claims in the following statement:

Team Bieber sent BreatheHeavy a cease and desist letter because of the alleged un-retouched Calvin Klein photo we posted, asking we remove the picture in question as well as provide a retraction.

Because BreatheHeavy is not about making anyone feel bad or intentionally stirring the pot (and are definitely not here for lawsuits), we shall retract the story per request.

We sincerely apologize to Bieber for the hit to his ego and to the millions of tweens on social media we upset.

Calvin Klein also posted a photo of a shirtless Bieber to their Instagram on Friday night with the caption, “Can’t touch this.”

Justin Bieber’s Graffiti Angers Australian Mayor

Justin Bieber won’t be mistaken for Banksy anytime soon, but he’s getting a bit more attention for his graffiti down in Australia with a Mayor condemning him and a hotel saying it was fine.

TMZ reports Bieber sprayed graffiti all over a hotel in Gold Coast, Australia last week while on his Believe world tour. The graffiti caught the attention of the city’s mayor Tom Tate who posted an exclusive video to TMZ.

“Hi TMZ, Mayor Tom Tate here from Australia’s Gold Coast,” Tate said. “You know I got a message here for pop princess Justin Beaver. We love your music but we hate your graffiti and your vandalism here in our city.”

The Gold Coast Bulletin had more information on the incident, with photographs proving Bieber was doing the deed at the QT Hotel.

However, the hotel didn’t seem to agree with Tate’s stance as it is actually running a graffiti art competition and said they gave Bieber permission to spray graffiti on its wall, a move the Gold Coast Bulletin described as a “one-fingered salute” to Tate.

“You could be painting your art on one of our walls with permission if you are the winner,” a hotel representative wrote on the QT Facebook page on Dec. 2. “All you need to do is post a sketch of your potential design here on our page to be in the running. The sketch should come with a brief description of why you believe it suits the Gold Coast.”

The hotel’s Facebook page also included a posted photo of “Anchorman” Ron Burgundy (played by Will Ferrell) with the caption “Stay Classy Tom Tate” on it. “We know that the Mayor assumed that it was done illegally and used it to make a point, and is now needing to stick to that position even though it’s not really fair,” the hotel rep added in the comments section. However, the hotel now has covered the graffiti by placing a tarp over it.

Tate told the publication his office received several messages from people who “agree graffiti has no place” in the area and “it is an eyesore and it has to go.”

As for Tate’s video he goes on to say Bieber has “two choices”: “come back and clean up your mess or come back and sing at the Mayor’s Christmas Carol” which takes place Dec. 7 in the Gold Coast. “Make me a believer everyone,” Tate says to conclude the 42-second video.

The singer — who reportedly showed up 70 minutes late for a Melbourne gig Monday night — will not be performing that day but is performing in Perth on Dec. 8 to wrap up the extensive trek that commenced in September, 2012.
