We had no idea things were this dire!

In the wake of Mac Miller's tragic death, Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun has revealed that he was constantly concerned JB would suffer that same fate until he rediscovered his faith and cleaned up his act.

“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. “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 confessed on The Red Pill podcast.

When he tried to step in and help The Biebs, Scooter was met with a lot of pushback, but eventually the "Sorry" crooner realized he needed to change.

"He used to yell and scream at me, and he wanted to put music out, he wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die. 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, because for a year and a half he didn’t change … 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,’” he continued.

"And he used to complain, and he used to fight it and that’s when he got into a dark place, but 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," he added.

We're so confused... is the pop star sober now? What was he doing that was so bad? We need to know!
