Hailey and Justin Bieber have opened up about a couple of rough patches in their marriage that made them doubt they could go on.
During a joint appearance on the “In Good Faith with Chelsea & Judah Smith” podcast, Hailey revealed the couple went through a period where Justin wouldn’t speak to her after she did something.
“It was actually very sad when we didn’t speak,” she said. “I did something that really hurt him, and I think that kind of maybe took that idea [of marriage] out of his mind at that point.”
She added that whatever she did was “very immature and stupid,” but offered up no other details.
The model also revealed that her mother, Kennya Baldwin, had to get involved after a particularly tough spot in their marriage as Justin was going through some mental health issues.
“I remember I called her a few different times, one particular time when we were in Brooklyn and I was calling her, I was crying,” Baldwin said. “And I was like, ‘I just can’t do it. There’s no way that I’m going to be able to do this if it’s going to be like this forever’.”
And I just remember she was so calm on the phone and she was like, ‘It’s going to pass, and you’re going to be fine and he’s going to be healthy and we’re here for you,’” Hailey shared.
“And I do feel like we just had a lot of support. I feel like if I didn’t have support, it would’ve been 10 times harder, and it was already the hardest thing in my life at the time.”
Back in April, the “Stay” singer admitted during a feature with GQ that their first year of marriage wasn’t easy.
“There was a lot, going back to the trauma stuff. There was just lack of trust,” he told the magazine. “There was all these things that you don’t want to admit to the person that you’re with, because it’s scary. You don’t want to scare them off by saying, ‘I’m scared.’”
