On Friday June 10, the singer posted a video on his Instagram account, in which he explains that he has Ramsay Hunt syndrome, canceling a series of concerts at the same time.

Friday, June 10, Justin Bieber canceled a concert salvo in a video posted on Instagram. The 28-year-old singer told his fans he had Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a rare infection that paralyzed part of his face. Facing the camera, the Canadian explains that he can no longer blink an eye today, nor move one side of his mouth. “For those who are frustrated with the cancellations of my upcoming shows, I am simply not able, physically, to do them. It’s pretty serious as you can see, “he justified for his 240 million subscribers.

As part of his tour called “Justice World Tour”, the world star was to stop Monday and Tuesday in New York at Madison Square Garden, then continue with several dates in the United States before leaving for Europe, reports the AFP. Already postponed twice due to Covid-19, the cancellation of these dates has angered some fans. To reassure them, the singer of Peaches said he was doing facial exercises and taking time to “rest, relax and get back to 100 percent.” Very religious, the latter also urged his subscribers to “pray for him”.

Still according to information from AFP, the Ramsay Hunt syndrome, from which he suffers, comes from the chickenpox and shingles family, and occurs when a flare-up affects the facial nerve near an ear. In addition to facial paralysis, it can cause hearing loss. Thus, the singer confided that it was “more and more difficult for him to eat, which is particularly frustrating”.

Complicated year

The year 2022 has been particularly complicated for the Bieber family. Earlier in the year, his wife, Hailey Bieber, had also had to face a serious health problem. Last March, the 25-year-old model was rushed to hospital with “symptoms similar to those of a stroke”. “I was having lunch with my husband when I felt a strange sensation in my arm, before my fingers went numb. When he asked me if I was okay, I couldn’t answer him,” the young woman explained in a video. “It was the scariest moment of my life,” Alec Baldwin’s niece concluded.
