The singer, who has talked about his mental health before, shared a black and white photo of himself on Sunday. He wrote: "Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys. 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 your guys to pray for me. God is faithful and ur prayers really work thanks .. the most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on.."
In a joint interview with wife Hailey Baldwin, Bieber opened up to Vogue last month about his struggles with depression an drug abuse. He also said his first few months of marriage to Baldwin has been "very hard."
Bieber said he "got really depressed" during his 2017 "Purpose" tour, leading to the last 14 shows being canceled. "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."
He added that drugs began to take over, saying, "Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing. It got pretty dark. I think therefore time when my security was coming in late at night to check my pulse and see if I was still breathing.”
Baldwin added: "I grieved very intensely over the whole situation. I just wanted him to be happy and be good and be safe and feel joy. But I’m really proud of him. To do it without a program, and to stick with it without a sober coach or AA or classes — I think it’s extraordinary. He is, in ways, a walking miracle."
Bieber and Baldwin tied the knot in 2018.
