Justin Bieber puts wedding on hold to treat depression—report
Before walking down the aisle, Justin Bieber wants to make sure he has no mental health problem.
The “Love Yourself” singer is struggling with depression and is seeking help, reported People on Tuesday, Feb. 12.
Bieber has difficulty dealing with fame, a source told the magazine. With life in the spotlight, “he often feels like everyone is out to get him.”
He has sought counseling with licensed professionals and with pastors from the evangelical church he attends.
Wife Hailey Baldwin is supportive of his decision and is presumably carrying on with planning their church ceremony after their civil wedding last September.
Bieber’s struggles with the limelight is not new. In the March cover feature for Vogue released on Feb. 7, Bieber discussed the pitfalls of coming into fame at an early age, including access to drugs and a “problem with sex.”
“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.
Previously, Bieber canceled his 2017 “Purpose” world tour due to depression. Niña V. Guno /ra
