Braun has managed the Canadian pop idol for years. He is now ready to share the struggles which at one time he claims to threaten the singer's life. He reportedly did not allow Bieber to tour after the huge tsunami of bad publicity in 2013. This phase occurred just after the Journals album was released.

Bieber's then descent began in 2012 with headline prone incidents and late performances, like adopting a monkey which he subsequently gave up. He exuded a conceited and arrogant attitude to the world and there were allegations of frequenting strip clubs and drug use. The singer reached rock bottom when he was arrested and charged with drag racing and egg throwing in the streets of Miami.

Braun asserted that the outside world barely had any idea about what Bieber was going through. The manager also was clear that he would not disclose in full as he wanted Bieber to share when the latter will be ready. He however said that things what people thought. He said that it was hard for him to watch the pain of someone you love and said that he was happy that the phase was over.

Bieber credits his return to Christianity as the major turning point that helped him turn over a new leaf and revive his career. “At this point, my faith has gotten me to where I am. My faith has brought me to a whole other level. I’m not religious. I, personally, love Jesus and that was my salvation. I want to share what I’m going through and what I’m feeling, and I think it shouldn't be ostracized.

Braun recalled another important turning point when it came to his client friend's career. He credited an office intern with this important achievement. The vital event happened at a staff meeting when Ava Coleman, who was then an intern, suggested that Bieber endure one Comedy Central roast. It was considered a stroke of genius and Braun soon contacted Comedy Central. Kevin Hart subsequently taking on the host role and utilized his comedic talents to save Bieber's career. The program revealed Bieber's sense of humor and humility.

When it comes to refurbishing Bieber's image, Braun admits that the hard marketing program had made its mark. He has also praised the 21-year-old singer for making the important life saving and life changing decision. Incidentally, Braun maintains a Twitter account, where he shares snapshots from his life and from those of the clients he manages.
