Hailey Bieber Recalls "Extremely Difficult" Early Days of Helping Justin Bieber Navigate His Sobriety

When it came to supporting Justin Bieber on his journey to sobriety, Hailey Bieber found herself in a familiar territory. In the 2020 YouTube docuseries Justin Bieber: Seasons, the pop star spoke candidly about overcoming battles with addiction to alcohol and other drugs, saying they'd been "an escape" for him. Hailey is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, who once struggled with an addiction. On a recent episode of the VS Voices podcast, the Victoria's Secret model said her experience growing up with her father amid his substance abuse battle helped her prepare to support Justin with his. "There's a lot of addiction that runs in our family, like, not even just my dad but a lot of other people of my family struggled with a lot of different things," she said. "He was always extremely open about why being sober worked for him and why he needed to be sober and what alcoholic behaviour looks like, and where that comes out."
