Justin Bieber reportedly seeking treatment for depression and anxiety but it has nothing to do with Hailey
Justin Bieber probably has a lot on his mind right now. If recent reports are to be believed, the past few months have been quite stressful for the singer, who is taking his time to settle down after getting married. Now, a new report has surfaced claiming that Bieber is currently seeking treatment for depression.
While such reports definitely give rise to speculations and rumors stating that his marriage and his wife Hailey Baldwin may have something to do with it, multiple sources are stressing on the fact that the pop star's mental health issues, however, are completely unrelated to his marriage to Hailey.
Claiming that the newlywed pop star seemed "down and tired", one source explained to People magazine: "He has been struggling a bit. It has nothing to do with Hailey — he is very happy being married to her."
The same source continued, "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."
The source added, “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.’ ”
Justin, who has been famous since he was a teenager, recently admitted that he now finds it difficult to trust people because of this sudden intense fame. He said: "It's been so hard for me to trust people. I've struggled with the feeling that people are using me or aren't really there for me, and that writers are looking to get something out of me and then use it against me."
The 24-year-old continued, "One of the big things for me is trusting myself. I've made some bad decisions personally and in relationships. Those mistakes have affected my confidence in my judgment. It's been difficult for me even to trust Hailey. We've been working through stuff. And it's great, right?"
Bieber and Hailey, who recently featured in Vogue magazine to celebrate their September marriage, discussed during the interview how being successful since the age of 13 had a huge impact on his development. He said, "I've been successful since I was 13, so I didn't really have a chance to find who I was apart from what I did."
The 'What Do You Mean' hitmaker added, "I just needed some time to evaluate myself: who I am, what I want out of my life, my relationships, who I want to be - stuff that when you're so immersed in the music business you kind of lose sight of."
The singer also spoke about his infamous years in which he became "arrogant and cocky", and described it as a time when he felt it was all a result of people around him taking away "control" over his life. "I was real at first, and then I was manufactured as, slowly, they just took more and more control. I started really feeling myself too much. People love me, I'm the s**t - that's honestly what I thought. I got very arrogant and cocky. I was wearing sunglasses inside."
