On Thursday, Justin Bieber was photographed looking very distraught while sitting in a car with his wife Hailey Baldwin.
It was only a day after news broke that his ex, Selena Gomez, was seeking treatment following two hospitalizations in the past few weeks.
At one point, Hailey seemed to be comforting an emotional Bieber during their car ride.
A source recently told People magazine, “Justin will always care about Selena. It’s hard for him to hear that she isn’t doing well. They have both had their separate struggles over the years and Justin was always very sympathetic to Selena’s. He wants the best for Selena. He wants her to be happy and healthy.”
A second insider shared with Us Weekly, “Justin still loves Selena a lot, but as a friend and is praying for her.”
Another source shared, “Justin has become a recluse and a changed person. 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 He has withdrawn again, much like he did a couple years ago.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.”
The insider claimed that Bieber is “not okay,” adding that the 24-year-old “has a lot of stuff going on his head.”
The pal said, “He has so much going for him but he doesn’t feel whole.”
Earlier this year, Bieber and Gomez seemingly rekindled their relationship, but “ended things again” in March. At the time, a source told People, “Their relationship was always very complex and complicated. It was just too much baggage.”
