Justin Bieber is suffering from Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, and the 28-year-old singer took to social media to ask his fans for prayers.
He posted a video to his Instagram explaining what was happening to him and to show that he is suffering from partial facial paralysis, which is a symptom of the syndrome.
“Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have this 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 with this side of my face. This nostril will not move, so there is full paralysis in this side of my face.”
He continued: "This is pretty serious as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case but obviously, my body is telling me I got to slow down and I hope you guys understand. And I’ll be using this time to rest and relax and get back to 100 percent so that I can do what I was born to do."
Justin had to reschedule three shows so far due to his current condition.
“Can’t believe I’m saying this. I’ve done everything to get better but my sickness is getting worse,” he wrote in a post on his Instagram Story. “My heart breaks that I will have to postpone these next few shows (doctors orders).”
