Los Angeles: American talent manager Scooter Braun has revealed that singer Justin Bieber could have died due to stress and touring in 2013.
The “Baby” hitmaker's reputation took a hit following a series of damaging stories shortly after he became a worldwide star.
Bieber's talent manager Braun shared how he refused to let the former perform in 2013 after he released his "Journals" album, reports mirror.co.uk.
"I was not going to let him work. He wanted to tour, and I honestly at that time felt, if he toured, he could die," New York Times quoted Braun as saying.
"The outsiders don't really know what was happening. It was far worse than people realize. and when he is ready, he will tell what he was going through. But it's a hard thing to watch someone you care and genuinely love go through that. I'm really, really happy that's over,” he added.
