Justin Bieber is working to a better version of himself in 2019.

The 24-year-old singer is in therapy for depression and anxiety, according to reports.

“Justin seems down and tired. He has been struggling a bit,” a source told People, clarifying that his anxieties have “nothing” to do with his marriage to Hailey Bieber aka Hailey Baldwin.

“Justin seems down and tired. He has been struggling a bit,” sources close to the singer revealed. “It has nothing to do with Hailey — he is very happy being married to her. 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.”

A second source said that he has indeed sought out counseling. A third source added that he’s been struggling with “the idea of fame.”

They continued, “He started off as a typical sweet, Canadian teen. He was such a great kid, honestly super sweet and very polite and nice to everyone around him. Having this huge amount of fame completely changed him.”

Bieber was thrust into the spotlight when he was just 15. The singer is now 24 and has since drifted further and further from the public eye. “He had access to anything and everything and was surrounded by people who just said ‘Yes.’”

In his recent Vogue cover feature, Bieber explained that he attributed his Xanax use to shame rather than depression or anxiety. “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.

“I think there were times when my security was coming in late at night to check my pulse and see if I was still breathing.” He added that he now sticks to social drinking.

Justin also admitted that his huge stardom had made it difficult for him to trust people, even wife Hailey, who he has known for many years.

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.”

Bieber also touched on 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.”
