Beliebers everywhere are reaching for their tissues...

Justin Bieber has announced he is taking a break to repair some "deep-rooted issues".

In a wayward post on his Instagram, the 25-year-old pop singer said he was unhappy during his last tour and needed time to focus "so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be".

"Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health," said the star, who earlier this month told fans he was "struggling a lot" with his mental health.

Better news, however, is that JB has vowed to return "with a kick ass album ASAP".

"My swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable... the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so."

His wife, Hailey - whom he married last year - responded to the post with the words: "That’s right ❤️❤️ love you so much it hurts!!!" while his manager, Scooter Braun, merely wrote: "Yes sir!!!"

Bieber's latest post bears striking similarities to events in 2017, when he cancelled the remaining dates of his Purpose world tour telling fans he wanted his career to be "sustainable".

"I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind, heart and soul to be sustainable," he wrote on Instagram at the time.

"So that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be".

The newlywed singer has reached out to fans after admitting he has been "struggling".

"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".

In July 2018, Bieber was featured on the DJ Khaled track No Brainer but it has been more than three years since his last album, Purpose.

Last month the 25-year-old Canadian confessed to Cosmopolitan mag that he and model wife Hailey Baldwin had found married life tough since getting hitched last year and how he previously had a "legitimate problem with sex" that lead to celibacy.
