The singer married Hailey Baldwin last year.

People magazine reported in February that Bieber was receiving treatment for depression.

"He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon," a source told the magazine.

Bieber has openly talked about his battle with depression for years.

"I got really depressed on tour," Bieber told Vogue for his recent cover story with his wife. "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."

He continued: "I'm the emotionally unstable one. I struggle with finding peace. I just feel like I care so much and I want things to be so good and I want people to like me. Hailey's very logical and structured, which I need. I've always wanted security—with my dad being gone sometimes when I was a kid, with being on the road. With the lifestyle I live, everything is so uncertain. I need one thing that's certain. And that"—he picks up her hand—"is my baby boo."

Bieber even told Vogue that he believes some of his emotional turmoil is generational.

Ahead of the interview, Bieber attended a week-long intensive therapy process that he says he was not comfortable with.

"There were these seances," he said. "Or not really seances but these traditions. They light candles, and it kind of freaked me out. You sit on a mat, you put a pillow down, and you beat your past out of it. I beat the fact that my mom was depressed a lot of my life and my dad has anger issues. Stuff that they passed on that I'm kind of mad they gave me."

As for his weekend Instagram post, several people commented with their prayers and love, including pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr., fashion designer Jerry Lorenzo, fitness expert Mikey Arana, actor Patrick Schwarzenegger and more.
