About a week ago, reports of Justin Bieber fighting depression surfaced on the internet. As per People magazine, he is also seeking help through counselling while wife Hailey Baldwin stands by him as rock-solid support. Sources confirmed that Justin's married life with Hailey was perfect and in no way caused him any distress. "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,” a source told People magazine.
In his latest Instagram post, Justin kind of confirmed he was not doing very well. "Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird," he writes, while asking fans to 'pray for him'. "I always bounce back so I’m not worried," he further says. Fame at an early age can take a toll, indeed!

In his recent conversation with Vogue, the Canadian singer himself opened up on issues he was dealing with and how being famous impacted him as a person. “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 told Vogue.
In 2017, he cancelled 14 concerts of his Purpose world tour, amid battling bad mental health. "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," he said.
