JUSTIN Bieber has announced he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome which has left the right side of his face paralyzed.
The 28-year-old singer took to Instagram to explain why he’s been forced to postpone some recent tour dates.
“As you can probably see from my face…I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt,” the hitmaker said in a short video.
The famous star also revealed that he hit a nerve in his ear and caused paralysis.
“As you can see, that eye doesn’t blink,” Justin shared while pointing to his right eye.
He continued, “That nostril isn’t going to move … so that side of my face is completely paralyzed.”
“This is pretty serious as you can see,” the entertainer said after mentioning that fans were “frustrated” by the “cancellation of shows.”
“I need to rest so I can get my face where it’s supposed to be…” he added.
The Peaches singer also revealed that he has been working on facial exercises to get him back to normal.
Notable stars were quick to react to Justin’s video, as longtime collaborator DJ Khaled said: “Love you bro! you will be great
“Love you dude please take the time you need,” fellow singer Kehlani chimed in, as Lil Yachty responded with heart emojis.
Even Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, wished the star well, adding, “Proud of you.”
Fans also offered well wishes, with one saying: “I pray that you are better.”
Another said: “I’m worried about you!”
The paralysis isn’t the first issue on the star’s Justice World Tour, which kicked off in February.
Not only is his show at Madison Square Garden in jeopardy because of a hockey game, but he and his wife Hailey caught Covid earlier this year, forcing the performer to shuffle his dates.
Just like her husband, Hailey recently suffered a scary medical emergency.
While enjoying a morning with Justin in March, she said she felt a “strange feeling.”
“Obviously I thought I was having a stroke — a full-blown stroke,” she told fans in a lengthy video.
“It was really, really scary.”
After the 25-year-old was able to speak again and regain control of her facial muscles, the model was rushed to the hospital, where she was told she had suffered a TIA (transient ischemic attack).
A TIA causes stroke-like symptoms for a temporary period of time and is often referred to as a mini-stroke.
The mini-stroke was caused by a blood clot that had leaked through a hole in her heart and entered her brain.
‘A HARD TIME’
While Hailey didn’t touch on her sanity as a result of the ordeal, she shared, “I was getting really badly scared and my fear was making me weird.
“It made my fingers and hands tingle and to be honest, it was really, really difficult for me.”
Hailey assured her followers that she is “a lot better” now and is “recovering really well.”
All of this comes after The Sun exclusively reported that Justin and Hailey are trying for a baby.
