Newlywed Justin Bieber seeking treatment for depression

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin

Pop-singer and new husband Justin Bieber is now seeking treatment for depression, according to sources close to the star.

According to a source, Justin Bieber has been struggling with depression before meeting Hailey Baldwin, but he now feels it's time to tackle the problem. A rep has confirmed to the outlet that the singer is seeing a counselor, but didn't offer any additional information.

"I got really depressed on tour", continued Bieber, who cancelled his 2017 goal world tour in 2017 saying at the time that he wanted his "mind heart and soul to be sustainable". "He seems confident he will feel better soon", the source told PEOPLE, while a second source told the publication that Justin is getting counseling for his depression. He has been struggling a bit. "She loves him with all her heart and wants him to be happy, so it hurts to see him struggling with his emotions".

"One of the reasons Hailey knew he needed more help was his sleep patterns", the source says.

"He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment". At the moment, the combination of extensive media coverage surrounding his relationship, impending wedding, and his public persona are taking a toll on him.

"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", the source said. "She just wants him to be at his healthiest so she pushed him to get steady help and he hasn't resisted".

This isn't the first time Bieber has struggled with depression.

Revealing when he started feeling depressed and sharing personal details about dealing with it, Justin said: "I got really depressed on tour".

"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 said. "I have loved him for a long time". "I'm the emotionally unstable one", Justin explained.

If you are anxious about your or someone else's mental health, the best place to get help is your GP or local mental health provider.
