Justin Bieber suffers facial paralysis

Update : 12 Jun 2022, 08:27

Canadian singer Justin Bieber is experiencing paralysis in his face after being diagnosed with a rare disorder. 

The 28-year-old recently announced he was pausing his Justice World Tour due to illness, hours before his first slated concert in Toronto.

The pop star first shared the shocking news on social media on Friday, that he was suffering from Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a rare complication of the shingles virus.

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is a complication of shingles that occurs when an outbreak impacts the facial nerve near one ear. In addition to facial paralysis, it can cause hearing loss.

In a short video shared on Instagram, the star is seen visibly unable to blink as he shares his experience with fans and updates them on why he has had to cancel his highly anticipated appearances.

“I wanted to update you guys on what’s been going on. Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have a 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,” he said.

“As you can see, this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move, so there’s full paralysis on this side of my face,” Bieber continued, gesturing to the right side of his face.

“I’m gonna get better and I’m doing all these facial exercises to get my face back to normal and it will go back to normal.

“It’s just time and we don’t know how much time it’s gonna be, but it’s gonna be OK. I have hope and I trust God and I trust that this is all for a reason.”

However just a few hours later, the singer returned to Instagram to reveal that things had worsened and that it had "been getting progressively harder to eat which has been extremely frustrating. "Please pray for me," he added.

He said: "Hey everyone Justin here, I wanted to update you guys on what's been going on," began the star as he clued fans in on his facial paralysis.

Justin then continued: "Obviously as you can probably see with my face. I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerves in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis."

In March, Biebers’ wife, Hailey Bieber, was hospitalized for a blood clot to her brain.
