Justin Bieber Has Revealed That He Suffers From Facial Paralysis From Ramsay Hunt Sydrome
Fans were furious with Justin Bieber after he postponed three shows on his 2022 Justice World Tour earlier this week. However, the 28-year-old has now given the world a little more insight into the “non-COVID-related illness” that has prevented the tour from going on.
The Journals’ hitmaker gave an Instagram video update on his condition on Friday, June 10. “Hey everyone, Justin here,” he started. “I wanted to update you guys on what’s been going on.” The singer’s face was clearly malfunctioning, which he quickly remedied.
“Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis,” Bieber stated.
The recording artist, who was born in Ontario, showed his distress by winking one eye while keeping the other open. “I can’t smile with this side of my face, this nostril will not move, so there is full paralysis in this side of my face.”
Bieber Expresses His Displeasure At The Cancellation Of His Tour
Bieber expressed his displeasure at the cancellations of his tour dates by saying, “I’m just physically, obviously not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case but obviously, my body is telling me I got to slow down and I hope you guys understand and I’ll be using this time to rest and relax and get back to 100% so that I can do what I was born to do.”
According to PEOPLE, the Mayo Clinic defines the Ramsay Hunt system as something that occurs when “when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near one of your ears. In addition to the painful shingles rash, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss in the affected ear.”
