Justin Bieber sobbed in a handful of Instagram images, and the now-viral breakdown has startled both fans and loved ones, who are considering an intervention to save the former boy wonder from himself, a new report claimed.

The 30-year-old "Baby" artist provided no explanation for his tears in his disturbing photo, which lacked captions. However, others who follow the Biebs' life saw the photographs as a plea for help amid reports that his wife is pregnant.

“It took a lot of guts for Justin to go on camera and essentially ask for support and prayers. He’s clearly in a very bad place,” an unnamed source told The National Enquirer.

While no one knows what prompted Justin to divulge the information, reports of marital issues with his wife, Hailey, 27, have circulated widely.

The model's father, actor Stephen Baldwin, stirred speculation in February with a post in which he said that the pair was going through extraordinary struggles and requested fans to pray for wisdom, protection, and a closer relationship with the Lord.

Meanwhile, Hailey is playing like everything is fine between the two, calling him "a pretty cryer" in a now-deleted post. But, alert admirers, based on many Instagram photos, believe he lives alone in Palm Springs, California.

“He’s been bottling up his emotions for months now, and this recent time apart from Hailey has pushed him over the edge. He can’t handle the idea of divorce and is desperately clinging on, hoping for assurances she isn’t willing to give,” an insider explained.

Friends believe Justin requires emotional and professional support to get through this difficult period.

“It’s no secret Hailey’s been going through a serious case of cabin fever with Justin. She needed a break after being cooped up with him over the past several years due to their various health problems,” the informant stated.

Reuters reported in 2020 that Justin stated that he had Lyme disease and mononucleosis. In 2022, he had to abandon parts of his “Justice World” Tour after being diagnosed with rare Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which paralyzed half of his face, as per The Independent.

That same year, Hailey had a frightening ministroke, which led to her diagnosis of patent foramen ovale, or PFO, a hole between the two upper chambers of the heart.

“He was falling to pieces physically, and now he seems to be losing it emotionally. People around Justin are really worried about him,” the tipster said.
