Hailey Bieber has opened up about the struggles she and singer Justin Bieber faced in the first year of their marriage.
Model Hailey married Justin back in September 2018. Speaking to Elle, the star discussed the pain she felt over the world’s speculation over Justin’s health, and his eventual Lyme disease diagnosis.
She explained it was “hard because everybody from the outside was being super mean and judgmental, saying he looked like he was on drugs, saying how unhealthy he looked, when in truth, he was not healthy and we didn’t know why.”
“It was months of me being a new wife trying to help him figure out what was wrong and what was going on,” she added.
We can only imagine how stressful that was.
The pair marked their first wedding anniversary with a larger second wedding in September 2019, with Hailey admitting she had doubts over the celebration, given Justin’s health issues.
“I felt like putting a wedding in the middle of all of that would be really hectic and stressful,” she said.
Hopefully it was worth it!
Justin – who has a new album out later his year – revealed he was battling Lyme disease last month.
The condition is a form of arthritis caused by bacteria transmitted by ticks.

Hailey says the singer is now “perfectly healthy” (glad to hear it), while adding “going through that and then trying to be like, ‘So where does our wedding fit into this?’ didn’t feel like the vibe at all.”
Summing up, she said: “We went straight into figuring out the hard stuff. Because you never know what can happen with someone’s health. When you don’t know what’s happening, it’s really scary. And then you have the opinions of everybody from the outside, and it just sucks.”
We all need a Hailey when we’re under the weather!
