In a rather shocking turn of events, Justin Bieber shared that he has been diagnosed with Ramday Hunt Syndrome. Unfortunately, the ‘Baby’ singer’s recent diagnosis with the rare disorder has paralyzed half of his face and therefore he has postponed his tour until he gets better.
Taking to Instagram, the Grammy winner shared a video on Instagram on Friday in which he talked about his condition. Bieber shared that he is suffering from Ramsay Hunt syndrome which causes facial paralysis and affects nerves in the face through a shingles outbreak.
Justin shared the video after he cancelled his shows in Toronto, Washington D.C. and the rest of the Justice World Tour schedule due to illness. The singer demonstrated in the video that he could barely move one side of his face, calling the ailment “pretty serious.”
In the video, he can be seen saying, "As you can see, this eye is not blinking, I can't smile on this side of my face, this nostril will not move."
Elaborating the reason he cancelled the tour, he said, "So, there's full paralysis on this side of my face. So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I'm just physically, obviously, not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious, as you can see."
Justin Bieber also explained what causes the Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in the video. He then shared that he is doing what he must to get back to normal. Along with facial exercises, he is taking time to "rest and relax and get back to 100 per cent so I can do what I was born to do."
The 'Baby' hitmaker captioned the post, "IMPORTANT PLEASE WATCH. I love you guys and keep me in your prayers."
Justin's video had 14-million-views in a few hours and thousands of prayers and wishes in the comments section for him to get better.
