Justin Bieber Is Diagnosed With Lyme Disease, Singer Discloses More Health Problems

January 9, 2020

Justin Bieber has been struggling with mental health for the past year, and now looks like 2020 isn't starting easy for him either.

Justin Bieber revealed his depression in 2019

In February 2019, a source close to the famous singer told PEOPLE that Bieber was going through depression and it hadn't been easy for him:

Justin seems down and tired. He has been struggling a bit. It has nothing to do with Hailey — he is very happy being married to her. It’s just something else that he struggles with mentally.

The source added:

He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon.

That wasn't the first time the famous pop singer struggled with mental health. He told Vogue that in 2017 he experienced depression while being on tour for his album Purpose:

I got really depressed on tour. I haven’t talked about this, and I’m still processing so much stuff that I haven’t talked about. I was lonely. I needed some time.

Now, Justin has more problems to deal with, but looks like it's been going on for a while.

Unfortunate diagnosis for Bieber

The 25-year-old pop sensation took to Instagram to reveal that he was diagnosed with Lyme disease after getting fed up with people's speculations about his appearance.

Bieber also said he "had a serious case of chronic mono" which took major toll on his looks. He wrote in a caption:

I've been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my, skin, brain function, energy, and overall health.

Justin didn't specify the time of his diagnosis, but since September 2019 he was often seen wearing an IV in his arm, which is now explained by his health update.

The singer is actively fighting the disease and learning how to live with it.

Other celebrities living with Lyme disease

There are way more famous people who are open about living with Lyme disease, so Justin Bieber can find a lot of support out there, especially in his wife's friend Bella Hadid.

Here are some of the celebs diagnosed with Lyme:

  • Avril Lavigne;
  • Ben Stiller;
