The rumour mill around Justin and Hailey Bieber’s relationship woes cranked up in February when her father Stephen Baldwin reposted a message from a church minister named Victor Marx asking fans to pray for the couple.

Per US media, The Aviator actor sparked concern from netizens when he reshared a post from Marx, founder of All Things Possible Ministries, which showed Bieber singing along to “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever” by Delirious? and the Hillsong Worship.

On the clip, Marx wrote, “Christians, please when you think of Justin and Hailey, take a moment to offer a little prayer for them to have wisdom, protection and to draw close to the Lord.”
“I seldom like to post about certain folks in the limelight because of the negative comments we get. Eileen and Hailey’s mum pray often together for J&H and our children as well,” he added in the post’s caption.

Although Hailey’s actor father didn’t offer any context or additional insight into his reasons for resharing the post, several fans were quick to call out how “inappropriate” and “invasive” the statement from Marx was, as reported by BuzzFeed News.

Others reportedly prayed for the married couple as requested, with one Christian commenter writing: “I’ve been praying that Justin will receive the calling upon his life. His gift and platform could reach millions for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Sadly, the reason for his unusual skill stems from the sexual abuse he experienced as a child, and his desire to take back control. According to an interview Marx gave on The Shawn Ryan Show, his stepfather would regularly threaten him.

“My stepfather sat me on a chair when I was a kid and pulled out that gun, pulled the hammer back, put his finger on the trigger – I could see the rounds. He would tap me to the side of the head and he would say, ‘If you ever tell anybody, I’m going to blow your brains out’.”

Is Victor Marx married?

What’s going on with Justin and Hailey Bieber?

So why did Hailey’s dad decide to share a video from Marx asking fans to “pray” for the Biebers? It’s still unclear. But one TMZ report in late February claimed that Hailey was not happy with her dad’s comments. Speculation has been rife for months that the two have been having issues, though they’ve yet to address the rumours publicly.

The “Baby” singer has been spotted hanging out with his controversial pastor Judah Smith more recently though. Smith took over as Bieber’s pastor after the pop star distanced himself from his previous spiritual guide, Carl Lentz, when it was revealed he’d cheated on his wife, per TMZ.
