Justin Bieber’s ‘Purpose Tour’ has been full of alleged freak-outs and canceled meet and greets, which has Beliebers worried. Help is on the way: Ellen DeGeneres is reportedly planning an ‘intervention’ for Justin to save him before he does something ‘stupid.’
Beliebers across the globe were worried – then furious – when Justin Bieber, 22, cancelled every one of his meet and greets on his Purpose Tour. With Justin freaking out and feeling exhausted, is the “Company” singer struggling with the pressure of fame? If so, his close friend, Ellen DeGeneres, 58, is reportedly coming to save Justin from himself!
“Ellen wants to stage a kind of intervention for Justin,” an insider tells Life & Style magazine, “because she wants him to get some kind of psychological help to better handle his fame.” She has already reached out to the people closest to the “Sorry” singer, according to the insider. “She [wants] to help him before he does something really stupid.”
The Finding Dory star is “tuned in and sees that Justin headed for trouble,” the insider tells Life & Style. She clearly was alarmed when Justin, less than two weeks into his Purpose World Tour, cancelled all meet and greets. He claimed they made him feel “so drained and so filled with so much of other’s people’s spiritual energy” that he winds up feeling very “unhappy.”
Plus, during the March 23 show in Los Angeles, Justin was spotted running off stage to have a crewmember pour an entire gallon of water on his head. “Justin was crying and shaking,” one fan wrote, worried that Justin was having a freakout.
“Justin is exhausted. He’s on the go 24/7, overwhelmed with having to give perfect performances and is completely sleep deprived,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com, explaining why Justin feels so overwhelmed. “The lack of sleep causes anxiety and it’s a vicious cycle. Justin feels like he always has to be on for everyone and it’s just taking a toll.”
Perhaps Ellen can help Justin deal with a horde of angry Beliebers? Though he cancelled the meet and greets, some fans paid as much as $2,000 to meet him. What they wound up with was a cardboard cutout of Justin. However, one fan got to hang with Justin – Emma Gretzky, the 13-year-old daughter of hockey legend, Wayne Gretzky, 55. You can imagine non-famous Beliebers weren’t happy after that!
Do you think Justin needs help from Ellen when it comes to handling fans, HollywoodLifers?
