Billie Eilish almost went to therapy over Justin Bieber obsession

Billie Eilish’s mother Maggie Baird has revealed she considered sending her daughter to therapy because of her obsession with Justin Bieber.

Baird was a guest on the 18-year-old singer’s Apple Music show, me & dad radio, in which Eilish and her father Patrick O’Connell share music and stories about their lives.

On the show, Baird said when Eilish was 12-years-old, she would play Bieber’s hit “As Long As You Love Me” over and over again, and cry.

She recalled “driving to the dance studio with Billie, playing this song, sobbing, and then driving back and sobbing”.

“I just want to say, we did consider taking you to therapy because you were in so much pain over Justin Bieber,” Baird added with a laugh. “It was so intense, it caused you so much pain.”

The Grammy-winning singer also spoke about her teenage angst on the show.

“There was a period where I cried every single day of my life, when I was like 13, 14, 15,” she said. “Every single day I cried.”

She added she is “proud to say I barely cry anymore”.

Eilish’s intense feelings about Bieber appear to be reciprocated, as earlier this year Bieber gave a tearful interview vowing to help her navigate fame.

The pair met for the first time at Coachella last year. Bieber later contributed vocals to a new version of Eilish’s song “Bad Guy”.

Bieber recently launched a $20m (£16.2m) defamation lawsuit against two people after they accused him of sexual assault on social media. The 26-year-old pop star denied the accusations that he sexually assaulted two women in 2014 and 2015, calling the alleged encounters “factually impossible”.
