It’s being reported by multiple sources that Justin Bieber is currently receiving treatment for depression.


According to a source close to Justin, they tell Entertainment Tonight, “Justin is receiving treatment for depression, something he’s struggled with for a while and was recently honest about in his Vogue interview.  Justin never had an authentic childhood due to accelerated fame and struggles with wanting normalcy.  He felt he needed an emotional tuneup and with the help of his wife, family and friends, he’s seeking help.”



However, Justin wants you to know that his depression has nothing to do with his marriage and/or his wife, Hailey, “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,” explains the source.

In Justin and Hailey’s Vogue interview, Justin says the first few months of marriage were very hard, and explains he cancelled the last 14 shows on his Purpose Tour because he got really depressed, “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.  I really started 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.”


Justin also dished on his fame, how it affected him and how people took control.  This led the Biebs to turn to drugs, “Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing. It got pretty dark.  I think there were times when my security was coming in late at night to check my pulse and see if I was still breathing.”



In the Vogue interview, Justin admitted that he once had a sex problem, “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.  My mom always said treat women with respect. For me, that was always in my head while I was doing it, so I could never enjoy it.”  Justin continues, “I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth.  Women do that, and guys do that. I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul. And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behaviour.”


It’s good to know that Justin is getting the help he need! We’re rooting for ya, Biebs!
