The insider said: “Justin wears his emotions on his sleeve and it is no secret that he is very religious.

“The pictures he put up of him crying may have prompted fans to question his wellbeing, and whether his marriage is on the rocks – but it was about his love of Jesus.”

They added: “It is deep, but he prays and often sheds tears after diving into his faith and though he prays and gives thanks for all that he has in his life, he gets carried away and the emotions that come from it all are released through tears.”

“He is not ashamed or embarrassed as he wants people to see his emotions. It helps him out for all that he goes through.”

The source claimed: “He feels that people should be vulnerable, and he is being vulnerable, and he believes it shows some maturity that he once didn’t have. In a word, he thinks it is beautiful.”
