I hope Michelle Williams gets better. I know a lot of people made fun of her and really didn’t like her. I hope that wasn’t the reason why she’s battling with depression. She did the right thing by going into Mental Health Facility. pic.twitter.com/CiHn2outeX— Justin x Camila -- (@JB_Cabello) July 17, 2018
