In a new interview with Elle, the model, 23, admitted her first year of marriage to Justin Bieber was tough on both of them. At the time, the “Yummy” singer began experiencing a myriad of health issues, and bizarrely, doctors did not know what was wrong.
“He was really sick. He has Lyme disease, and he was dealing with a bunch of medical stuff. We didn’t have a diagnosis,” she said. “And it was hard because everybody from the outside was being super mean and judgmental, saying he looked like he was on drugs, saying how unhealthy he looked, when in truth, he was not healthy, and we didn’t know why.”
The newlyweds worried about Bieber’s health and crippling depression all while trying to navigate their new lives as Mr. and Mrs.
“It was months of me being a new wife trying to help him figure out what was wrong and what was going on,” Baldwin said.
