  • Justin Bieber is reportedly receiving treatment for depression.
  • This news comes after Justin recently opened up to Vogue about his past drug addiction.

According to People sources, Justin Bieber is struggling with depression, but he is reportedly receiving treatment. The source said, “Justin seems down and tired. He has been struggling a bit.”

Another source added Justin “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.” It seems he has had those feelings through the course of his career. They added his level of success also contributed to his mental health. “He had access to anything and everything and was surrounded by people who just said ‘Yes,'” they explained.

One thing one of People‘s sources made clear was that Hailey Baldwin nor their marriage is the cause of Justin’s current mental and emotional state. “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,” they said.

Justin recently opened up to Vogue about how fame has affected him and how he started abusing drugs because of it. He said, “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…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.”

Reportedly, Justin is currently getting help through counseling and “he seems confident he will feel better soon.”
