Hailey Bieber Reveals Husband Justin Bieber Is Part of Why She Deleted Her Twitter and Rarely Uses Instagram

Hailey Bieber’s marriage to Justin Bieber has catapulted her into another level of fame. Sure, the model and child of Stephen Baldwin was used to being in the public eye before, but what she experienced pre-Justin was nothing compared to the scrutiny she receives now that she is married to him. Hailey recently got off Twitter and rarely uses her Instagram now, and Justin is part of the reason for that.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber’s relationship

Hailey and Justin began dating originally when Hailey was just 19. The two began hanging out more in 2015 but it wasn’t until 2016 that they publically came out with their relationship. The union didn’t last long that time around and they were over before the year was.

The two came back together in 2018 and by that time, Justin had changed.

“I think I was just hurt from my previous relationship…In my previous relationship, I went off and just went crazy and went wild, just was being reckless,” Justin told Zane Lowe in a recent interview. “[With Hailey] I took the time to really build myself and focus on me, and try to make the right decisions and all that sort of stuff. And yeah, I got better.”

There was a lot of controversy surrounding the time of their reunion as Justin and Selena Gomez broke up earlier that same year.

“People don’t know, too, we had been talking for a while before we got back together,” Hailey said on an episode Ashley Graham‘s Pretty Big Deal podcast. “Contrary to popular belief, he had been single for a while and I had been single and we were kind of just trying to figure life out.”

Once they rekindled their romance, things moved quickly.

“Everything happened really fast, I think everybody knows that,” she said. “Everybody was kind of, like, ‘Hey, did you get married?’”

Why did Hailey delete her Twitter?

Since marrying Justin, Hailey has encountered more trolls on the internet, which led her to quit Twitter and limit her time on Instagram.

“My husband has helped me so much with it,” Hailey told psychiatrist Dr. Jessica Clemons on the Mar. 31 episode of her YouTube series, A Conversation With.

“I really give him credit because he’s been doing this so much longer at this really massive level. I think I’ve gone through a phase where I’m like ‘I get it. I don’t want to hear it,'” she said of keeping off of social media. “And then I do it and he’s like, ‘I told you. Life is way better this way.’ And he was so entirely right.”

In order to stay in a good place mentally, Hailey began limiting her time on Instagram and who could comment on her content.

“Another thing I did that I think was really helpful was that I turned off the comments on my page except for people who I follow,” she said. “When I look at my comments now when I put up a photo or video, I know it’s only going to be people who I know are only going to be positive, and only going to be encouraging and uplifting.”

Twitter had to go entirely, though.

“I don’t even have a Twitter anymore because there was never really a time where I would go on there and it didn’t feel like it was a very toxic environment,” Hailey continued.“The thought of even opening the app gives me such bad anxiety that I feel like I’m gonna throw up. So I got rid of that because I was like ‘it just needs to go, it no longer needs to be part of my life.’”
