Justin Bieber married his wife Hailey in two separate ceremonies - one in an intimate New York City courthouse in 2018 and another during a lavish do at Bluffton, South Carolina in 2019.

But, after they wed, the singer says he went through an 'emotional breakdown', which he opened up about during an interview with Apple Music's Ebro Darden.

He recently said: 'I remember when I first got married, I hit a little bit of an emotional breakdown because I thought marriage was going to fix all my problems and it didn't.

'It just kind of was a reflection of like, man, you're a bit of a hypocrite man.'

The 28-year-old musician continued: 'You want your wife to do something that you're not doing and it's like, it's hard sometimes to look in the mirror and really have to realise, man, maybe you're not the person that you necessarily thought that you were.

'And that's just a result of trauma and life circumstances.'

The couple have had to grapple with difficult times since marrying, including the supermodel's mini stroke - an experience she opened up about to her Instagram followers when sharing a video just days ago.

In the clip, she explained: 'The right side of my face started drooping, I couldn't get a sentence out.

'Immediately, I thought I was having a stroke.'

Doctors later informed her she had a blood clot that limited the oxygen to her brain for a period of time.

Meanwhile, the performer has also addressed his struggles with fame, drug use and depression in the past. In 2019 he wrote an emotional letter about becoming what he believed 'the most hated person in the world' due to 'bad decisions'.

He admitted: 'I became resentful, disrespectful to women and angry.

'I became distant to everyone who loved me... I felt like I could never turn it around. I made every bad decision you could have thought of and went from one of the most loved and adored people in the world to the most ridiculed, judged and hated person in the world.'

He later noted: 'Luckily, God blessed me with extraordinary people who love me for me. Now I am navigating the best season of my life 'MARRIAGE'!! [sic]'

The model has also previously shared her struggles as a newlywed. The 25-year-old model, who last month begged trolls to 'leave' her alone in a TikTok video, spoke to ELLE US about how public scrutiny took its toll on her.

She said: 'In the beginning of our marriage, I just wanted to hide. I was like, "I don’t want people so in my business. I feel like everybody’s up my ass".

'I was like, "Can there be no anonymity? Can I have any of it back?”... I remember someone telling me that [turning off public comments] really lowers your engagement. And I was like, "I could give a f*ck about engagement! People are terrorising me, "Engagement, enschagement". I don’t care.'

She also spoke to the publication specifically about marrying in her early twenties. 'I mean, I was married when I was 21, two months before I turned 22, which is insanely young. And sounds almost ridiculous when you say it out loud,' she said.

She does, however, believe that she and her husband have 'lived enough life' to know that marriage is what they wanted.

The recent Met Gala attendeed continued: 'We always knew that we were aligned on what we wanted in our future. We had talked about wanting to be married young and having a family young and building a life. Even before we knew we wanted to be with each other.'

Despite the couple's challenges over the years, they regularly publicise their romance on social media.

Yesterday, the 'Sorry' singer, in admiration of his wife, shared a photo of her taken at the Met Gala 2022, where she wore a Saint Laurent gown, and in February his account was deemed 'a Hailey fan account'.
