The 24-year-old model was a guest on the Women's Health UK podcast Going for Goal on Tuesday, Feb. 2, where she explained that her husband's health situation has made her more attuned to any problems that she herself might be facing.
"I think with the Lyme disease and that situation, it definitely makes you more aware of your health, and I think it makes you pay more attention to how you feel and different symptoms," Hailey said.
"Lyme disease is an interesting thing because a lot of people don't believe it's real, and a lot of people think it's BS. But I've had it before, I've dealt with it," she added but did not share details of her own experience. "My husband has it and deals with it very deeply. I think it's about finding the right doctors who believe in getting to the bottom of any health issues that you might have."
Justin had previously opened up about his battle with Lyme disease in an Instagram post from January 2020.
"While a lot of people kept saying justin Bieber looks like s--t, on meth etc. they failed to realize I've been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease," he wrote. "not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my, skin, brain function, energy, and overall health."
The 26-year-old "Anyone" singer shared that he has endured "a rough couple years" but is confident that "the right treatment" will help him feel like his old self.
Not long after Justin had posted his message, Hailey took to Twitter to defend him from any online trolls.
"For those who are trying to downplay the severity of Lyme disease. Please do your research and listen to the stories of people who have suffered with it for years," she tweeted. "Making fun of and belittling a disease you don't understand is never the way, all it takes is educating yourself."
