Justin Bieber is the latest star to reach out to US Olympian gymnast Simone Biles after she pulled out of both the team and the all-around gymnastics finals at the ongoing 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games to focus on her mental health.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, the Canadian pop star wrote that “nobody will ever understand the pressures” facing Biles as she pulled out of both the team and the all-around gymnastics finals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games this week.
Bieber also went on to compare Biles’ withdrawals to his own decision to cancel the last leg of a tour for his fourth studio album, ‘Purpose,’ in 2017.
Posting a picture of Biles, the ‘Baby’ singer wrote: “Nobody will ever understand the pressures you face! I know we don’t know each other but I’m so proud of the decision to withdraw. It’s as simple as what does it mean to gain the whole world but forfeit your soul.
Sometimes our no’s are more powerful than our yes’s. When what you normally love starts to steal your joy it’s important we take a step back to evaluate why.
People thought I was crazy for not finishing the purpose tour but it was the best thing I could have done for my mental health!! So proud of you @simonebiles
