Why Hailey Bieber Finds Justin Bieber’s ‘Possessive’ Fans ‘Frustrating’
The model recently opened up to Cosmopolitan about some of the challenges of being married to the "Sorry" singer, naming his fans has a top contender. It's not all Justin's fans that Hailey takes issue with, however. She said it's mainly the fans that "think they know" Justin that leave her "frustrated."
"The problem is kids become possessive over people and feel like if they thing they're hurt, they feel hurt for them and they're hurt too, or whatever it is. They just think they know these people who are famous because their life is so exposed. And that's what gets me, I think, the most frustrated," she explained. "I'm like, 'You actually don't know me. You don't know him. You don't know these people for real.'"
Hailey continued, "What's really weird to me is they create scenarios in their head of what they think is happening, or what they think should happen, and I'm just like, 'This is just so dumb. It's so dumb.'"
Dealing with fans is somewhat new to Hailey, however. After she and Justin got engaged in July, Hailey and Justin faced many negative comments from the singer's fans. She's learning how to cope, however.
"I've found that I got to a place where I don't read the comments. People can just be mean, and I feel like if you don't want it to get to you, then don't read it and allow it to affect your soul. You still care to a certain extent. You really have to train your brain to be like, 'OK, why do I even care?'" She said. "I don't know these people, they don't know me, they're not a part of my life or relationship."
Justin has been focusing inward as well. Sources recently told ET Online that the pop star is struggling with depression. He's "taking everything day by day," according to the source.
"He's very focused on being happy and healthy and that always comes with recognizing when he needs help or not. Justin and Hailey have been enjoying traveling and relaxing and not doing too many things that are stressful for Justin. He's in a good place right now and that's most important."
