Justin Bieber is working to better himself in 2019. The 24-year-old singer is receiving treatment for depression and anxiety, according to reports, but is not in rehab.
“He is very happy being married to her. It’s just something else that he struggles with mentally,” continued the insider. “He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon.”
A second source confirms to the magazine Bieber is receiving counseling for his issues.
Us Weekly reports Bieber is “going to several doctors” but its source clarifies that: “He’s not in rehab…. He sees a therapist, but he’s not in a special center or anything.
“He doesn’t want to be dependent on medication. He struggles with ups and downs, anxiety, depression and uncertainty about the future.”
Yahoo reached out to a representative for Bieber, but did not immediately receive a response.
The “Sorry” singer has been open about battling depression and anxiety, most recently in Vogue. Bieber shares the March cover with his wife, Hailey.
“I got really depressed on tour,” he recalled of canceling the final 14 shows of his Purpose World 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.”
The Biebers also discussed their different temperaments. “I’m the emotionally unstable one,” Justin explained. “I struggle with finding peace. I just feel like I care so much and I want things to be so good and I want people to like me. Hailey’s very logical and structured, which I need. I’ve always wanted security — with my dad being gone sometimes when I was a kid, with being on the road. With the lifestyle I live, everything is so uncertain. I need one thing that’s certain. And that … is my baby boo.”
Neither Hailey nor Justin has commented on the counseling reports.
