Justin Bieber Reportedly Seeking Treatment For Depression
Just days after gracing the March cover of Vogue magazine with wife Hailey Baldwin, it’s being reported that pop star Justin Bieber is currently seeking out treatment stemming from past issues with depression.
According to multiple inside sources Bieber has reportedly decided to seek treatment for his depression issues. The sources were also careful to note that his current depression struggles have nothing to do with his marriage to new wife Hailey Baldwin.
The first source acknowledged that Bieber has been suffering with depression for before he even met Baldwin, but he felt that now was the proper time to get some outside help:
“Justin seems down and tired. He has been struggling a bit. It has nothing to do with Hailey — he is very happy being married to her. It’s just something else that he struggles with mentally. He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon.”
Another source revealed that Bieber’s up and down relationship with fame throughout the years has taken a toll on him, which is the major reason for his current mental state:
“He started off as a typical sweet, Canadian teen. He was such a great kid, honestly super sweet and very polite and nice to everyone around him. Having this huge amount of fame completely changed him. He had access to anything and everything and was surrounded by people who just said ‘Yes.’ He’s emotional and struggles a lot with the idea of fame — being followed, having his every move stalked by fans, cameras in his face. It all sets him off and he often feels like everyone is out to get him.”
In the interview accompanying the Vogue cover, Bieber revealed that being rich and famous at such a young age contributed to his struggles, causing him to spiral out of control:
“I started really feeling myself too much. ‘People love me, I’m the s—,’ that’s honestly what I thought. I got very arrogant and cocky. I was wearing sunglasses inside. 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 also revealed that he was very depressed during his 2017 Purpose Tour, which ended up being canceled with only 14 dates remaining:
“I got really depressed on tour. I haven’t talked about this, and I’m still processing so much stuff that I haven’t talked about. I was lonely. I needed some time.”
At press time, Bieber, Baldwin, nor Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, have publicly commented on the recent reports.
