Canadian singer and actor, Justin Bieber, has admitted that he used to have an addiction with sex and that he was celibate before marrying his wife, Hailey Baldwin.
The 24-year-old musician said this in an interview with Vogue Magazine.
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.
Justin 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.
Justin admitted he was in the midst of a self-imposed period of celibacy when he and Hailey got back together.
“I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul,” he said.
“And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behaviour.”
In July 2018, Justin Bieber shocked the world when he proposed to Hailey Baldwin less than a month after reconnecting with her during a vacation trip to the Bahamas.
The couple reportedly held a private marriage at a courthouse in New York City in September 2018.
