Better than Bieber
Selena Gomez 'Thinks Justin Bieber Needs Help' Reuters

Justin Bieber has been through a series of rather embarrassing incidents in recent days, leading to the cancellation of the second of his two concerts (from the Believe tour) in Lisbon, Portugal. Prior to that, the teen also had to deal with a less than happy birthday party at the Cirque de Soleil nightclub.

And now the 19-year-old singer's former girlfriend, Selena Gomez, thinks her Canadian ex-boyfriend needs some form of counselling or therapy. Gomez's comments come after reports stating the Disney star may have forgiven Bieber and may be planning to rekindle their love.

"Selena thinks he needs help. She fears the strain of having so much attention on him could lead to a breakdown," a source told The Sun.

Meanwhile, the Baby singer has posted a lengthier message on Instagram, in which he talks about his relationship with the media and how "tired" he is of the "countless lies". The statement reads:

"Everyone in my team has been telling me, "keep the press happy" but I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now. Saying I'm going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me. My family is beyond proud, and nothing's been said by them, my grandparents wouldnt know how to reach to press even of they did want to so that was a lie and rehab cmon. if Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol I'm 19 with 5 number one albums, 19 and I've seen the whole world. 19 and I've accomplished more than I could've ever dreamed of, i'm 19 and it must be scary to some people to think that this is just the beginning. I know my talent level and i know i got my head on straight."

Among other problems, Bieber had a confrontation with a British tabloid photographer and also had to deal with fans after he turned up two hours late for the O2 Arena concert.

"i know who i am and i know who i'm not My messege is to to believe. My albums could be about anything but my messages have been to never say never and believe, not to believe in me but to believe in yourself .. I honestly don't care if you don't believe in me because I believe in me, my friends believe, my family believe, my fans believe, and look where that's gotten me so far.. I'm writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart. Letting u know first hand how I feel rather than have these story linger," he continued.

"I'm a good person with a big heart. And don't think I deserve all this negative press I've worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn't stop here... All this isn't easy. I get angry sometimes. I'm human. I'm gonna make mistakes. In gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love u. Thanks," he concluded.
