Justin Bieber has been truly, genuinely upset following the news of his ex Selena Gomez’s hospitalization and decision to seek treatment for anxiety and depression after.
He’s been photographed out crying twice this week, including just yesterday in the car with his new wife Hailey Baldwin. But even before that, Bieber has been struggling since his courthouse wedding to Baldwin last month, Us Weekly reports.
Regarding Gomez, a source told the outlet that there are definitely still feelings there, even though they’re not romantic, and Bieber really is concerned for her. “Justin still loves Selena a lot, but as a friend and is praying for her,” the source said.
But generally, getting married hasn’t fulfilled Bieber, who feels overwhelmed with everything. “He has so much going for him but he doesn’t feel whole,” a second source close to the singer told the outlet.
Bieber is over fame too, that second source added.
“Justin has become a recluse and a changed person,” the source said. “He has no interest in being a celebrity and an artist. He has withdrawn again, much like he did a couple years ago. He started recording music, but just stopped.”
