Justin Bieber reportedly seeking treatment for his depression
Pop star Justin Bieber is reportedly seeking treatment for depression, according to US sources.
A source told E! News that the Sorry singer is "batting depression and he's been having a difficult time."
"He really wants to get better. He has been seeking all the help he can get," said the insider, claiming that the star is leaning on his 22-year-old wife Hailey Baldwin for support.
Bieber soared to fame at the tender age of just 13-years-old, and recently spoke about the difficulties of growing up in the public eye.
He said: "I didn't really have a chance to find who I was apart from what I did."
"I just needed some time to evaluate myself: who I am, what I want out of my life, my relationships, who I want to be – stuff that when you're so immersed in the music business you kind of lose sight of."
The 24-year-old has composed a strong network around him of "the people that love him most," such as his mum, wife and pastor.
The source stated that "this is just something Justin has to deal with" and that he is actively seeking professional treatment. "He is in outpatient therapy and getting help every day," the source elaborated.
"This is his focus right now." He recently got candid about his struggle with his mental health in an honest interview with Vogue. He revealed a number of personal problems, such as resentment towards his parents.
While speaking to Vogue, he said: "I've struggled with the feeling that people are using me or aren't really there for me, and that writers are looking to get something out of me and then use it against me."
People magazine allege that Justin is feeling "down and tired" and "has been struggling a bit", but the treatment and health issues have nothing to do with Hailey.
The pair tied the knot last September, with people close to them saying that Justin is very happily married: "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."
