Justin Bieber speaks out on his 'reckless behaviour' in relationship with Selena Gomez

There's no doubt that Justin Bieber is one of the most famous people on the planet.

Once upon a time, Justin was practically synonymous with another musician: his long-term girlfriend Selena Gomez, whom he had an on-again/off-again relationship with. They broke up for the final time in March 2018, and by June of the same year Justin was dating his future wife Hailey Baldwin, whom he officially married in September of 2019.

Recently Bieber opened up to his fans in this Instagram Live video:

Justin hasn't always discussed his relationship Selena. But now he's revealed that he thinks his behavior was "reckless" while they were together, in a new interview with DJ Zane Lowe on Apple Music.

Speaking to Lowe, Bieber stated: "I think I was just hurt from my previous relationship. I think I still was dealing with a lot of unforgiveness and all that sort of stuff. To be honest, I don’t think I even knew what I was really struggling with at the time. I don’t think I knew I was dealing with unforgiveness.

Take a look at the full video interview below: 

He continued: "I was just in a place where I knew I didn’t want to tell [Baldwin] one thing and… I felt like she respected me at the time and I had a lot of respect for her, and so I just didn’t want to say something and then she’d see me off doing some other thing."

He added: "Before that, in my previous relationship, I went off and just went crazy and went wild, just was being reckless. This time 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."

In an interview with NPR back in January, Gomez stated, "I think that it’s something that — I had to find a way to understand it as an adult. And I had to understand the choices I was making.

She added: "As much as I definitely don’t want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt and I’ve found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible."
