Justin Bieber has reportedly revealed that he lived in a cramped apartment after his parents broke up.
The singer said that it was a difficult time but he is grateful for his success.
He told Top of the Pops: “My parents split up when I was really young. I grew up with my mom – and not much money.
“After my parents split up, mom and I lived in a small, shabby apartment but despite our financial situation we were always a good team.”
He added: “It’s sad for a kid when a parent leaves, it doesn’t make you feel very good but now being in the position that I am, when I look back, it’s like, ‘I’m so blessed’.”
