Hailey Bieber shared about the lowest time in her life during the September 28 episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast. The 25-year-old Rhode Skin founder revealed that she had suicidal ideation after receiving a lot of hate from people after she and Justin Bieber tied the knot.
She started, “When things can get really dark and you can start having thoughts of, like, it not being worth it anymore or not wanting to be here anymore, which I have had before in the past.”
The couple recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary. According to her, having a great support system is very important, especially during the hardest moments in your life. She explained, “Sometimes I don’t think we can comprehend [those thoughts] on our own because then you just throw yourself back into like, a vicious cycle. I do think sometimes you need to express it and you need to go to someone who is going to feel safe for you and support you in those thoughts, not make you feel like you’re crazy or that you’re wrong for feeling dark and deep and heavy.”
However, she was highly scrutinized when she and Justin married in September 2018, only six months after he and Selena Gomez broke up. The two had been in an on and off relationship for years.
In a 2021 vlog, she said, “I think one of the biggest things I struggled with for sure was the comparison aspect of body comparison and looks comparison and behavior comparison.” She referred to how fans compared her and the actress.
That time, she realized that the best way for her to deal with her mental health was to limit her time on social media, which was why she deactivated her Twitter account in 2021. However, she still has her Instagram account which she uses and looks at only during weekends. She has also changed its settings so that only those she follows can comment.
She said, “When I look at my comments now, when I put up a photo or a video or anything, I know it’s only going to be people that I know that are only going to be positive and only going to be encouraging and uplifting.”
