Justin Bieber says “he’s been struggling alot”, gets emotional on Instagram.

Justin Bieber is sharing the latest with his fans concerning his struggle with depression.

Late Saturday night, the “Sorry” singer posted a black-and-white photo of himself praying while embraced by people on either side.

“Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys,” he wrote. “Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird.”

“I always bounce back so I’m not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for [you] guys to pray for me,“ the 25-year-old singer added. “God is faithful and you prayers really work thanks .. the most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on.”

This update comes almost exactly a month after ET learned that the pop star started receiving treatment to ensure his mental well-being.

Bieber told Vogue in the aforementioned interview that the first months of his marriage to Hailey Baldwin were “very hard.” He also discussed his previous struggles with depression and drug abuse.

“I got really depressed on tour,” he explained of the Purpose tour in 2017, the last 14 shows of which were cancelled. “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.”

“Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing. It got pretty dark,” he said, adding that, during this time, ”security was coming in late at night to check my pulse and see if I was still breathing.”

Followed reporting of Bieber’s treatment for depression, ET learned that his wife Hailey was a big supporter for him seeking professional help.

“One of the reasons Hailey knew he needed more help was his sleep patterns,” a source reported. “He’s been sleeping far more than usual, and struggles to get out of bed until very late into the morning or early afternoon.”
