Justin Bieber is getting a feel for his new surroundings, tearing up the streets of his new neighborhood on his skateboard. The Biebs busted out his deck for a Friday afternoon skate sesh and kickflipped his way…
Justin Bieber needed a hug and some love on his way out of church, clearly impacted by our story about Selena Gomez’s mental health crisis. The first signs Justin wasn’t his normal self came when he showed up alone to his usual…
According to most recent reports, Justin Bieber is a very happy man these days.
How could he not be, right?!?
The singer has found faith and religion and, most importantly of all perhaps, the woman of his dreams.
Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are at least engaged and maybe even married and the singer seems very content with where he’s at in life right now.
But is this really the case?
There have been a handful of under-the-radar cases and sightings of late that have some close to the artist thinking he’s actually struggling and perhaps spiraling very far downward once again.
To wit, as initially outlined by Page Six:
– In August, Bieber was spotted looking disoriented while shopping shirtless in Tribeca.
– He was also seen crying on the West Side Highway bike path the same day.
– Then, Justin went to a music festival in the great city of Grand Rapids, Michigan… only for a video to surface online of Bieber acting jittery and shaking while meeting fans there.
We’re not sure how to quantify these examples.
We’re not sure what they mean.
Maybe nothing at all.
However, Bieber has sort of been here before.
Remember when he visited a brothel in a Rio de Janeiro in 2013? Or when he had drugs confiscated aboard his tour bus in Sweden that same year?
Then, of course, there was his drunk driving arrest in 2014, which marked a low point for Bieber.
Earlier this year, manager and close friend Scooter Braun said he thought Justin might die while he was going through this dangerous and irresponsible stretch.
But Bieber then found solace in Hillsong, the Evangelical megachurch that draws 9,000 devotees to its concert-like services at Hammerstein Ballroom in Midtown.
He became a fervent devotee, Tweeting several months ago of the changes he made to his life:
“Jesus is changing me from the inside out everyday!”
Friends and loved once have since vouched for the star, saying he truly has seen the light.
“He’s come a long way,” said New York City-based tattoo artist JonBoy. “It’s amazing how much he’s changed and how much God has done.”
Now, though, the concern is that he has rushed into his romance with Baldwin and has lost his way once again.
Bieber’s team, for instance, was caught WAY off guard by the couple’s alleged marriage.
The stars have not yet signed a prenuptial agreement, meaning Bieber’s $ 275 million fortune could be on the hook if something goes wrong.
It’s notable, many believe, that pastor Carl Lentz has not congratulated Bieber on his engagement or his marriage.
According to TMZ, the pastor and the singer had a falling out after the latter dedicated himself more to Baldwin than he did to religion this summer.
Does this mean Bieber will get arrested again for drunk driving or curse off fans again in the street or generally act like a jackass?
But we’ll be keeping a close eye on him moving forward.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged and they’ve been piling on the PDA as they race to the altar.
Unlike their public outings, however, it sounds like Hailey’s bachelorette party plans are going to be decidedly less wild and steamy.
Is Justin the one insisting that Hailey tone down her last night as an umarried woman?
Life & Style reports that Hailey Baldwin’s bachelorette party is going to be a pretty tame affair despite the celebrity guests.
Hailey and her guests “will play games about the groom,” their insider reports.
She and the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner will do that “and take tons of pictures in a photo booth,” the source describes.
“Hailey and Justin want it to be a classy and fun-filled celebration,” the insider explains.
In other words, there are some things that Hailey will not be doing.
Allegedly, it’s Justin who insists that the event be dialed down a little.
“So,” the source continues. “What you won’t see are any of the girls wearing wedding veils and playing beer pong,”
And they certainly won’t be “getting a five-minute lap dance from complete strangers,” the insider says.
(We get the feeling that they won’t be getting lapdances from close friends, either)
The source says that there will be no wild antics “or doing any of the other things young brides usually do.”
It sounds like a very PG-13 affair.
Now, this is pretty believable, even though most wouldn’t considering beer pong to be especially out-of-control.
Hailey may be a young, hot model, but she’s also a pretty hardcore Christian.
That is one of the things that she and Justin have in common. You know, aside from fame and terrible dads.
A lot of their “dates” have been to attend Hillsong Church together.
Maybe this super-tame bachelorette was Hailey’s idea.
But … maybe it’s true that this is at Justin’s insistence.
We should also acknowledge something else.
This recent photo of Justin looking very nurturing had an interesting caption.
Justin’s formerly deadbeat dad, Jeremy Bieber, wrote: “To be Father.”
This led some to believe that the man was hinting that Justin and Hailey have their own bun in the oven.
If so, the insistence on a low-key bachelorette party could simply be a cover for why a secretly preggo Hailey might avoid alcohol.
If Justin’s the one laying down the law in this respect, it sounds … very hypocritical.
It seems that he doesn’t trust Hailey and that he might be a little controlling.
But more to the point, he’s done all of this stuff.
This is the guy whose own manager was worried that he’d die from his substance abuse issues just a couple of years ago.
And the guy worried about his fiancee getting a lapdance has reportedly slept with sex workers while touring in different countries.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen signs that Justin might be a little jealous or even controlling.
Remember Hailey’s close personal friendship with the oh-so-desirable Shawn Mendes?
Hold on to that memory, because Hailey purged every photo of Shawn from her entire Instagram account.
The two of them went to the Met Gala together earlier this year. Now, from her IG, you’d think they’d never even met.
Shawn is a Canadian singer and heartthrob. He’s younger and hotter than the Biebs.
Did Justin demand that Hailey do that out of jealousy?
There is just so much here that we don’t know.
There is so much here that we cannot know, really.
If Hailey wants her bachelorette party to just be having a nice dinner and then playing scrabble with some of the (other) hottest models on the planet, that’s fine.
Not every bachelorette party needs a stripper or a sexy pillowfight or a human sacrifice.
We just hope that it’s her choice — and that Justin respects her enough to make his own party toned down to match.
Surely the Biebs has sown enough wild oats for a dozen lifetimes.
