Justin Bieber suffers from Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. He explained this to his fans in a video on Instagram. He caught a virus and now his face is paralyzed on one side.

After Justin Bieber, 28, had to postpone several shows on his tour due to illness, the singer has now reached out to his fans with shocking news. In a nearly three-minute video, the star revealed on Instagram that he has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome and hemifacial paralysis.

“I wanted to give you guys an update on what’s going on. As you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt Syndrome,” Bieber says. He caught a virus that attacks his nerves in his ear and face. He shows that he cannot blink or smile on one side of his face that is completely paralyzed.

Due to his health condition, which is “pretty serious”, Bieber is unable to give the actual concerts and hopes that his fans will understand this too. His body “obviously” tells the singer that he has to “slow down”.

The singer now wants to rest and is also doing special exercises so that he can soon fully recover. That will happen too. He just doesn’t know how long that will take. “Everything will be fine,” says Bieber. “I have hope and I trust God.” He is sure that everything happens for a reason. But he can’t name it just yet. The 28-year-old loves his fans and asks that they keep him in their prayers, he writes.

Within a short period of time, the singer received thousands of get well wishes and heart emojis in the comments – including from Diane Keaton, 76, and actor Patrick Schwarzenegger, 28, as well as fellow musicians DJ Khaled, 46, Lil Yachty, 24, and Lil Pump, 21 .
