Justin Bieber revealed that he was temporarily paralysed by a virus that left half of his face paralyzed.
Canadian star, Canadian Superstar, was forced to cancel his North American dates.
In a three-minute Instagram video, Bieber, 28 years old, revealed that he has Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a rare condition that renders the right side of his body unable to move.
He tries to smile, blink and move his face but one side is still there while he speaks.
He explained to fans that he has a syndrome called Ramsay Hunt. It is caused by a virus that attacks my facial nerves and the nerves in my ears. This has left my face paralyzed.
He said, “As you can clearly see, this eye isn’t blinking. I can’t smile from this side of mine.”
“It’s very serious. I wish it wasn’t so but my body is telling me to slow down.
What is Ramsay Hunt syndrome and how can it be explained?
According to the NHS, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can be caused by a virus in facial nerves and is more severe than facial paralysis.
You may also experience facial weakness and blisters on the roof or ears.
This syndrome can be treated using steroids, antiviral medication, and facial rehabilitation.
According to the NHS, less than half of patients are fully recovered.
Bieber stated that he was sure he would improve.
“I hope you guys understand. I’ll use this time to rest and relax, get back to 100% and do the things I was meant to do.
“But in the interim, this ain’t it.”
Bieber stated that he has been performing facial exercises in an effort to regain his movement. However, it will take some time for him to fully recover.
He said, “We don’t know how long it will take but it’s going to work out.”
Romeo Beckham’s celebrity friends included Hailey Bieber, who wrote that she supported him.
