Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are technically already married—they had a secret courthouse ceremony in the fall—but they were also planning on having a big church wedding for friends and family. That plan has been put on hold indefinitely while Bieber takes the time he needs to work on his mental health, People reported.
It was revealed last month that Bieber has been getting treatment for depression. He’s apparently been very overwhelmed with his fame lately, his every action being dissected by his fans and media.
A source told People, “He’s emotional and struggles a lot with the idea of fame—being followed, having his every move stalked by fans, cameras in his face. It all sets him off and he often feels like everyone is out to get him.”
That’s truly a tough situation—he basically gave up his childhood to fame and never has a chance to feel like a regular “normal” (non-famous) person. It’s a lot of weight to bear.

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..
“They will still have a wedding eventually, but this is not their focus right now,” a different source told People. “They haven’t sent out any new Save the Dates. They will wait until Justin feels better and is excited about planning their wedding again.”
“Justin is still receiving treatment on both coasts, but is doing okay,” the source continued. “He is very, very focused on getting better. He wants to be in a great place for his own and Hailey’s sake. He is still confident that he will get there.”
Baldwin is Bieber’s “biggest supporter” according to yet another People source.
“There are so many people who love and care for him and are helping him deal with what he needs to deal with,” the source went on. “Hailey is definitely one of those people. She is there for him in a way that you wouldn’t expect from a newlywed. She understands him deeply, and is 100 percent ready to help him. He realizes how blessed he is to have her.”
It makes sense for him to want to be in a good head spaceto plan a wedding. A source (which source? No idea) told People, “He’s got all the money he will ever need, and he’s starting to really center himself and focus on his future. Therapy has helped empower him: he’s focusing on the positives, not the negatives. He knows that he’s beginning a new life.”
