Justin and Hailey Bieber's Vogue cover: All of the biggest bombshells

Justin and Hailey Bieber appear on the cover of the latest issue of Vogue, and their accompanying first interview as a couple sheds light on how the couple first met, broke up, got back together and eventually got married. Justin also reveals new details on his past drug and sex addictions, as well as his complicated relationship with religion.

We've rounded up the biggest bombshells from Jailey's joint Vogue cover below:

Justin had "a legitimate problem with sex" and went celibate for God:

Justin revealed that he had gone celibate for a year before reconnecting with Hailey in June of 2018 after having a sex addiction for years. The article explains that the singer abstained from sex for a year in order to feel closer to God.

"He doesn't ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff," Justin said. "He's like, 'I'm trying to protect you from hurt and pain. I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don't feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that. I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul. And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. Those are perks. You get rewarded for good behavior."

The "What Do You Mean?" hitmaker also admitted that having sex again was "one reason" that he and Hailey got married, but it "was not the only reason."

"When I saw her last June, I just forgot how much I loved her and how much I missed her and how much of a positive impact she made on my life," he explained. "I was like, 'Holy cow, this is what I've been looking for.'"

Justin abused Xanax to escape from his life:

During his downward spiral of erratic behavior, the singer said he was abusing the prescription drug as a coping mechanism.

"I found myself doing things that I was so ashamed of, being super-promiscuous and stuff, and I think I used Xanax because I was so ashamed," he said. "My mom always said to treat women with respect. For me that was always in my head while I was doing it, so I could never enjoy it."

"Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing," he went on. "It got pretty dark. I think there were times when my security was coming in late at night to check my pulse and see if I was still breathing."

Justin and Hailey are already in marriage counseling:

After Justin's failed attempt at the Hoffman Process, which Vogue describes as "a weeklong intensive group-therapy retreat with a devoted Hollywood following," the couple turned to a marriage counselor in Seattle, who was recommended by Churchome pastor Judah Smith, who they're both close with.

"The thing is, marriage is very hard," Hailey explained.

Justin (likely) cheated on Hailey when they first dated:

Though the article doesn't explicitly state that the "Sorry" singer cheated on his future wife during their first go 'round back around 2016: "Three years ago they did date, briefly, and while she was under no illusions about his capacity for exclusivity at the time, things did not end well. Both intimate that a betrayal occurred."

"Negative things happened that we still need to talk about and work through," Hailey explained. "'Fizzled' would not be the right word -- it was more like a very dramatic excommunication. There was a period where if I walked into a room, he would walk out."

Justin "wouldn't consider" himself to be religious:

The singer is careful when talking about his relationship to God and the various churches that he's been known to frequent over the past several years, going so far as to say, "I wouldn't consider myself religious."

"That confuses a lot of people because they’re like, Well, you go to church. I believe in the story of Jesus -- that’s the simplicity of what I believe," he elaborated. "But I don’t believe in all the religious elitism and pretentiousness, like people are better than you because they come to church, like you have to go to church and dress a certain way. I get sensitive when religion comes up because it’s been so hurtful to a lot of people. I don’t want to be thought of as someone who stands for any of the injustice that religion has done and does do."
