Justin Bieber is reportedly seeking treatment for depression.
According to People, the 24-year-old is receiving counselling and is “very focused on his mental health.”
An insider told the outlet that Justin is having sessions that contain both spiritual and secular religious components, and the treatment is “painful” for the hitmaker.
“He’s feeling very positive that he’s uncovering some root issues, and everyone is optimistic that this will help him figure out his next chapter,” the insider continued. “He’s going to be a dad someday, and he knows that could happen sooner rather than later.”
Justin, who wed model Hailey Baldwin back in September, apparently wants to make sure he’s “got his act together” before starting a family with his 22-year-old wife.
And despite being happy and content in his marriage, the Canadian pop superstar has been “down and tired” in recent weeks, and is struggling with the downsides of fame, including being constantly papped by photographers.
In a recent joint interview for Vogue with Hailey, Justin opened up about his mental health, and explained how becoming famous as a young teenager affected him later in life.
“I started really feeling myself too much. ‘People love me, I’m the s—,’ that’s honestly what I thought. I got very arrogant and cocky. I was wearing sunglasses inside,” he told the fashion magazine.
He also admitted he dabbled with drugs and had a “legitimate 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.
