Justin Bieber has had a rough few weeks.
The 24-year-old singer has reportedly been struggling in the aftermath of ex Selena Gomez’s breakdown.
By struggling, we mean he’s allegedly been feeling guilty about his relationship with Hailey Baldwin because he thinks Selena still has feelings for him.
There’s been a lot of change for Justin of late.
He got married to Hailey in a top-secret ceremony in September, confirming that two could agree on the fact that they are totally in love.
However, it sounds like they’ve found something they simply cannot agree on:
Their work commitments.
According to a new report by PEOPLE, Bieber has scaled back his commitments, noting that “he doesn’t seem ready to record new music yet” because “he just wants to hang out with Hailey.”
It’s not uncommon for newlyweds to want to spend a lot of time with each other. There’s always a honeymoon period, and while it sounds like Justin is still in that phase, it sounds like Hailey is not.
How very awkward.
“Hailey actually seems more ready to work than he does,” the report continues, adding that the duo are “not on the same page when it comes to work.”
We need to remember here that Bieber has been the spotlight ever since 2007 when Scooter Braun happened to click on one of his Youtube videos by accident.
That seems like a lifetime ago, right?
It’s crazy to think that Bieber may not be as big as he is today if Braun did not click on that video.
Yes, he has appeared as a featured artist on recent music, but those songs don’t have the same addictive ring to them that the hitmaker’s own music has.
But what’s really holding Justin back from hitting up the recording studio with his big comeback record?
“He’s been on the go for a long time, and he’s enjoying a laid-back season of life,” a tipster dished to PEOPLE, adding:
“He is enjoying time with the woman he loves, and doesn’t want anything to get in the way of that.”
With Justin attempting to steer clear of work for the foreseeable future, his wife Hailey is not, and was recently unveiled as the new face of Tommy Hilfiger.
Way to go, Hailey!
Despite reports that her knack for work is causing some issues in their marriage, Baldwin had only kind words to say about her new husband in October’s issue of Harper’s BAZAAR.
“He is incredible,” the 21-year-old told the publication, adding:
“He crushes everything. Every song, every feature. It’s crazy to see what he does. I’m always blown away.”
“Over the past year, I’ve had more attention on me than I’ve ever had in my life. It’s easy to not think about your mental health or your physical health because you keep pushing, pushing, pushing. Before this year, I wasn’t balancing anything,” she continued.
He wants a break, and everyone’s entitled to that, but Justin’s behavior of late has also been a huge cause for concern.
There have been multiple occurrences in the last few months that have fans worried about his wellbeing.
In August, just one month before his wedding, he was spotted shopping shirtless and looking disoriented in Tribeca before being spotted bawling his eyes out on the West Side Highway bike path the same day.
It remains to be seen whether one working while the other chills out will cause a divide in their relationship, or if their young marriage is strong enough to weather any storm.
Time will tell, we guess!
