Bieber's Manager "Worried Every Night" That He'd Overdose
Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, has never stopped being a Belieber, and here's proof.
The talent manager has opened up about the major concerns he had for the Canadian singer.
"There was a time when 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 on The Red Pill Podcast.
"I thought he was going to die. I thought he was going to sleep one night and that he would have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning."

Braun, who also works with the likes of Ariana Grande and Carly Rae Jepsen, is referring to 2014, the year Bieber had a string of issues with the law, including his arrest for DUI while drag racing in a Lamborghini.
"I think he made a conscious choice for himself to change... I think for a year and a half, I failed miserably trying to help him," the talent manager said of Bieber. "It wasn’t until one day he woke up and said, 'Hey I need to talk to you, I don’t want to be that person anymore.'"
And, what does Braun think of Bieber's head space now? "[He's] an extraordinary young man who's been given an extraordinary life... He used to complain, and he used to fight it and that's when he got into a dark place." Braun added, "When he accepted his responsibility and took a hard look at himself and not what everyone was doing, that's when he owned it and he got healthy."
