Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin could be heading for divorce – just six months after they tied-the-knot following a whirlwind romance.
But cracks had already appeared in the marriage – with the couple previously complaining to Vogue magazine that marriage was proving to be harder than expected.
Now sources have told Heat magazine that Hailey has gone as far as consulting divorce lawyers as she struggles to deal with husband Justin’s ‘erratic’ behaviour.
“Hailey’s been nothing but supportive of Justin since they got married, but she says he keeps going AWOL on her and saying he needs space,” the source said.
“She doesn’t understand why they can’t just enjoy their life together. Now she feels like she’s running out of options, so she’s sounding out divorce lawyers, just to be prepared,” the source continued.
Justin recently spoke about “struggling” in his personal life – and the source says this has also plaid into Hailey’s plans and feelings.
“She doesn’t want to serve him divorce papers while he’s struggling, but at the same time she has to look after herself, too,” the source claims.
Earlier this month, Justin took to social media to ask fans for their support as he revealed he was not feeling at his best.
“Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys. Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird,” he wrote on Instagram .
“I always bounce back so I’m not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for your guys to pray for me. God is faithful and ur prayers really work thanks .. the most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on,” he added.
Meanwhile, Hailey had opened up about the struggles of being married to Justin in the March edition of American Vogue which went on sale in February.
“Marriage is very hard,” the star – who is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin – told the publication.
“That is the sentence you should lead with. It’s really effing hard,” she suggested.
In the interview, Hailey opened up about her past romance with Justin – as they had dated in 2015, but broke up amid behaviour that sounds not too dissimilar from what the Heat source is describing now.
“Fizzled would not be the right word – it was more like a very dramatic excommunication,” Hailey told Vogue.
“There was a period where if I walked into a room, he would walk out,” she explained.
