Over the years, Justin Bieber has gone through an incredible transformation before our very eyes. He started out as a kid from a small town in Canada, playing his guitar on the steps of Stratford coffee shops to a globally known superstar. In between, he's struggled and thrived but many remember a time where he seemed to be in the news every day for his foolish behavior. We're talking about the Justin that used to urinate into buckets in restaurant kitchens... Bieber has changed his life and is now a very respectable human being but there was once a time where his longtime friend and manager, Scooter Braun, seriously thought he would lose him.

Featuring on Van Lathan's "Red Pill Podcast," the host asked Braun if there was ever any fear in his mind about Bieber's actions. He explained that before he got healthy, he believed he would regularly wake up to news of the star's death. "There was a time where I would go to sleep almost every night, when he had the money to fly away from me, and I was worried every night that I was gonna lose him," he said. He clarified that he had stopped Biebs from working at that point in his career, thinking that he would die if he went any further. "I thought he was gonna die," said Scooter, "I thought he was gonna go to sleep one night and have so much crap in his system that he would not wake up the next morning."

Thankfully, Justin made the conscious decision to change his life and soon, he will be a married man. Listen to Scooter's comments at around the 16-minute mark.
