BILLIE Eilish has revealed her obsession with Justin Bieber was so strong she almost went to therapy over it.

The Bad Guy singer, 18, admitted to being in “so much pain” because of her infatuation with the Canadian star, 26, that she would “sob” over his songs.

Billie got candid about her Bieber crush in the latest episode of her Apple Music podcast me & dad radio, with her mom, Maggie Baird.

The Ocean Eyes hitmaker admitted to crying over the music video for Justin’s song, As Long As You Love Me, in 2012.

“I would watch the music video for this song and just sob,” she confessed.

Maggie, 61, recalled driving Billie to a dance studio while playing the song and her daughter “sobbing” there and back.

“I remember this one really well and the video, and Billie talking about it, and being excited it was coming out, and just crying and crying,” Maggie said.

“Everyone knows the whole Billie/Justin Bieber thing, but this song was a big part of it.”

She added with a laugh: “I just want to say, we did consider taking you to therapy because you were in so much pain over Justin Bieber.”

Billie – who previously opened up about having suicidal thoughts – also talked about being a Belieber last year, explaining that the obsession began when she was 12.

She told ET: “It started when I was, like, 12, I believe.

“He’s amazing. He’s so sweet and, like, I feel, just, honestly, I feel for him, man. He’s been through a lot, dude.”

The singer – who is isolating in LA – also recalled Justin DM’ing her to send a screengrab of a tweet she’d sent him years earlier.

“The first thing he sent was a screenshot of a DM I sent him in 2014,” the teen said.

“You know how when you follow somebody, you can see everything they DM’d you in the past? It, like, it felt good and it felt bad at the same time.”

The two finally met and even collaborated on a remix of her hit Bad Guy last July.

They’ve built up a close bond, with Justin previously revealing his desire to “protect” her from the pressures of fame.

The Baby singer – who is married to Hailey Baldwin – told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe: “It was hard for me being that young, and being in the industry, and not knowing where to turn, and everyone telling me they love me, and just turn their back on you in a second.”

Reflecting on his friendship with Billie, he added: “It has to be natural, right? I just kind of let her do her thing.

“I just want to protect her. I don’t want her to lose it. I don’t want her to go through anything I went through.

“I don’t wish that upon anybody. If she ever needs me, I’m just a call away.”
