Cape Town – Justin Bieber has given his fans an update on his mental health, asking them to pray for him.

The Love Yourself hitmaker has been struggling in recent months with depression and has chosen to share his road to recovery.

Sharing a photo of himself wearing a shirt bearing a photo of late rapper Tupac Shakur while embracing and praying with Kanye West and manager Scooter Braun, Justin wrote: " Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys."

He added: "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 your prayers really work thanks. The most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on."


Justin's update comes after the 25-year-old opened up about having an addiction to Xanax as well as how the decision to remain celibate brought him closer to god in a joint interview with wife Hailey Baldwin with Vogue magazine.
