Justin Bieber is opening up about his mental health, admitting he’s been “struggling” lately and asking fans for their prayers.

“Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys,” the Canadian-born singer, 24, wrote on Instagram.

“Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird,” he continued. “I always bounce back so I’m not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for [you] guys to pray for me.”

He concluded by writing, “God is faithful and ur prayers really work thanks .. the most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on.”

The seemingly confirms an earlier report that Bieber was being treated for depression.

“Justin seems down and tired. He has been struggling a bit,” a source told People of Bieber, but insisted his issues unrelated to his new marriage to model Hailey Baldwin, who now goes by Hailey Bieber.

“It has nothing to do with Hailey — he is very happy being married to her,” the source added. “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.”

Bieber candidly discussed his battle with depression in a recent interview with Vogue.

“I got really depressed on tour. 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,” Bieber told the mag.

“Just thinking about music stresses me out,” he added. “I’ve been successful since I was 13, so 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.”
