Last week it was reported that Selena Gomez entered a mental health facility after suffering from a “mental breakdown. According to TMZ’s sources her ex Justin Bieber is not taking the news very well. He was caught crying in public on two separate occasions this week.
Us Weekly’s source claims that the singer still loves Selena and this is the reason why all these news are so hard for him to take. “Justin still loves Selena a lot, but as a friend and is praying for her.”
Selena and Justin dated on and off for years until they finally broke it off this spring. Shortly after that he proposed to Hailey Baldwin and got married to her just last month. Reports are suggesting that Justin is overwhelmed by everything going on in his life. “He has so much going for him but he doesn’t feel whole,” the source said, adding that “he’s not OK.”
“It has been overwhelming for him since they tied the knot and he’s not good at handling his emotions,” the insider says of Bieber. “He’s been very emotional, but he always means well and is coming from a good place.”
“Justin and Selena are not in touch but him hearing the news about Selena definitely upsets him,” a source tells E! “He feels sad and remorse for Selena and knows how it is to go through a difficult time. Justin also feels guilty. He wants to help everyone. He truly wants Selena to be happy, and it’s upsetting to know she’s battling health issues.”
“Justin’s focused on his wife and the life they are building together, but he’s having a hard time not letting his emotions get to him,” the source continues. “Hailey’s been a great supporter for Justin and definitely has his back. Their personalities really work well together. Justin and Hailey both have taken a step back and aren’t rushing the wedding process right now. They are happy at where things are right now in their relationship and are trying to live their lives as normal as possible.”
“Many people around him believe that Hailey coming back into Justin’s life has made him a better person, but ultimately Justin still battles his own issues from time to time,” the insider adds. “Hailey has made Justin more spiritual and they are happy to be on the same religious path together. Life as newlyweds have been going well, but they are also in the stage of figuring out real-life/marital situations together, which are hard adjustments.”
TMZ reported that Gomez entered the hospital after she grew “despondent and emotional over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant.” Selena’s health problems drove her into an emotional downward spiral, which culminated into her checking herself into a mental health facility on the east coast.
