ET reports via a source that Bieber has been very affected by news of Gomez’s condition. “Selena holds a special place in his heart,” a source told the outlet. “Justin spent most of the day alone and even took a solo hike to the Wisdom Tree in L.A. to get away and decompress. Justin then went to his church where he was noticeably upset, without Hailey, and was comforted by friends.”
“Above everything, Justin wants the best for Selena,” the source said “When the two rekindled their romance, he got to see how her health really affects her, so he understands how serious this is.”
Gomez, by the way, is doing better, People reported this morning. After being hospitalized twice for a low white blood cell count, Gomez decided to seek treatment for her mental health after having a panic attack in the hospital. “She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” a source told People earlier. “She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues. She’s surrounded by close family and has a lot of support. She’s doing better now and is seeking treatment on the East Coast.”
Bieber dated Gomez last fall until early March. He started dating Baldwin publicly in June, proposed to her in July, and then ultimately married her at a New York courthouse in September.
