Hailey’s desperate bid TO SAVE BIEBS!
She wants to help her floundering hubby – but she has problems of her own...
Justin Bieber grew up in the full unforgiving glare of the spotlight, but lately he seems to be in more trouble than ever – and his devoted wife Hailey is struggling to support him! “She’s made it her absolute mission to turn his mood around, but it’s an uphill battle because he’s pushing everyone away,” sighs an insider. “Justin’s mood goes up and down like the flick of a switch, and everyone’s walking on eggshells.
“He insists that he’s working on himself, but things seem to just keep getting worse,” adds the spy. “Especially now that he’s openly admitting how much he’s struggling on social media, and then hardly talking about it to Hailey.”
Yes, just recently the singer took to Instagram with a sadly reflective post. On March 10, he wrote, “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 [sic] guys to pray for me.”
This is a new level of openness from the Biebs – and he’s been matched by Hailey with her own issues. As recently as January, she posted her own plaintive message online, writing, “I’m 22 years old, and the truth is no matter how amazing life may look from the outside I struggle... Every single day is a confidence battle for me.”
That’s two cries for help in the space of a few months. Of course, it doesn’t help that Hailey’s focus is on her husband rather than herself.
“Justin is far more emotional than she is, and that’s meant that she’s had to put a lot of her feelings and concerns aside to focus on him and help him work through his issues,” sighs the source. “That doesn’t exactly make for a healthy relationship, and even though Justin insists he couldn’t be happier with Hailey, he’s in a weird place.”
Which means that, as much as Justin wants Hailey’s support, he’s also saying he needs his space.
“Even though they were friends for a long time and she knows he has his demons, this has [gone to] a whole new extreme – and Hailey isn’t finding it easy,” reckons the insider. “This is not the romantic newlywed life she expected [and] Hailey can’t be happy about the fact that she’s spending so much time by herself.”
Luckily, Hails has an ally in Justin’s mum Pattie, who’s recently come back into his life following a period of estrangement.
“Hailey’s having to be careful because Justin hates the idea of people ganging up on him – and his relationship with his mum is super delicate even now,” shares the spy. “But without Pattie as a sounding board, Hailey would find it impossible.”
The sad truth is that, even with Pattie’s support, Justin and Hailey’s young relationship is buckling under the weight of their issues. Will they break?
“They are committed,” states the insider. “But it seems like Hailey is in over her head...”
