Justin Bieber is a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and actor. Taking a retrospective view of the R&B singer’s life and career, you will find the perfect fusion of talent, hard work, and opportunity. Right from when Scooter Braun discovered him in 2008 to when he released his debut single in 2009, Bieber’s career has been nothing short of successful. 7 songs on his debut EP featured on the Billboard Hot 100 chart making him the first artist to achieve such a feat.
Over the years, the Canadian has received 434 awards nominations of which he has gone on to win quite a good number. This includes the aforementioned Grammy Award, a Latin Grammy Award, 19 Billboard Awards, 7 Juno Awards, 15 American Music Awards, 23 Teen Choice Awards, 10 MuchMusic Video Awards, and 22 MTV Europe Music Awards. Bieber also holds 14 Guinness World Records for many of the feats he has accomplished and it still remains amazing that he did all these despite his humble background.
Justin Bieber was Raised Solely By His Mum and Her Family
Justin Bieber was born at St Joseph’s Hospital in London, Ontario on March 1, 1994. He grew up in low-income housing in Stratford city in Southwestern Ontario. His parents; Pattie Mallette and Jeremy Jack Bieber were never married as Pattie gave birth to him as an adolescent and had to take a couple of low-paying office jobs in order to support herself and her newly born son. Luckily for her, she had help from her mother Diane, and her step-father, Bruce.
Despite being the only child of his parents, Justin still has half-siblings from his paternal side. His father has three other children; Jazmyn and Jaxon from his relationship with Erin Wagner and a daughter named Bay with his new wife Chelsey. More so, Chelsey also has a daughter named Allie from a previous relationship.
Jeremy was not part of his son’s life in his budding years. He and his son, however, maintain a cordial relationship as he has been very supportive of his career and personal life.
Justin Bieber attended Jeanne Sauvé Catholic School for his elementary education. He began learning how to play the guitar, piano, trumpet, and drums at a tender age. When he turned 12, he participated in a local singing competition and finished second. This was his first exposure to the limelight. Justin went on to attend the prestigious St. Michael Catholic Secondary School from which he graduated in 2012 with a GPA of 4.0.
Bieber Dated a Number of Hollywood Beauties After Getting Famous
Justin Bieber has a wide fan base that cuts across the entire globe and as expected, this huge following comprises more of ladies than guys. It’s almost impossible for any lady not to fall in love with the Canadian music maestro owing to his good looks and natural charm. The singer has been romantically involved with several women but his longest romance was with Selena Gomez.
Bieber and Selena Gomez’s Romance Always Made The Headlines
Bieber began dating Gomez in December 2010. Like him, his girlfriend is also a widely acclaimed singer and songwriter. The pair were often seen together on red carpets and in public places. The Canadian singer even released some hit singles about his relationship with Selena which remained intense until 2012 when they called it quits. They would, however, later rekindle their love although their relationship became an on-again, off-again one. This lasted until sometime in 2018 when they finally decided to officially break up.
This news was received with a lot of disappointment by both Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez fans who wanted to see the duo walk down the aisle and start a family together. Neither party has since come out openly to reveal the cause of their break-up after 8 years of being together.
Within the period in which he was about to end his romance with Selena, Justin Bieber was rumored to have dated people like Baskin Champion, a popular model who won the 2014 Miss Alabama Teen USA. Bieber and his alleged love interest were seen spending some time together attending concerts where they were caught snuggling. The pair is believed to have been hooked up by the singer’s friend, Patrick Schwarzenegger, who was dating Baskin’s sister Abby Champion at the time.
Prior to Baskin, it was reported that the star singer had dated Sofia Richie, the daughter of legendary singer Lionel Richie. Their relationship was very brief and lasted only a month. Justin was further rumored to have been romantically involved with other ladies like Paola Paulin, Nicola Peltz, Chantel Jeffries, Jayde Pierce, Adriana Lima, Barbara Palvin, Miranda Kerr, Jessica Jarrell, Kourtney Kardashian, and Caitlin Beadles.
Justin Bieber Later Married His Longtime Friend Hailey Baldwin
It is very easy to describe Hailey Baldwin as one of the luckiest women alive. This is because, despite Justin Bieber’s stormy relationships with comely supermodels in the entertainment world, she was the first lady to receive an engagement ring from him.
Prior to their heavily publicized engagement, the two were longtime friends but only started gaining wider international attention after rumors of their relationship began to make the rounds in 2015. The singer would later confirm that he was in a relationship with the TV personality in April 2016.
As it was with his relationship with Selena, Justin Bieber also had an on-again-off-again relationship with Baldwin who comes from a very popular Hollywood family. They reportedly broke up in 2016 but managed to come back together in May 2018, a few months after he officially ended things with Selena. The duo got engaged about two months later on July 7th, 2018.
Reports indicated that they got their marriage license in September 2018. However, it was not confirmed if they had a civil marriage as reported by the media but an official acknowledgment of the union was made on November 23, 2018.
The Latin Grammy Award winner stated that he and Baldwin had exchanged marital vows. Later on, Justin Bieber and his wife went on to organize an elaborate ceremony in Bluffton, South Carolina on September 30th, 2019 to tie the nuptial knot in the presence of family and friends.
