Justin Bieber shared over the weekend he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome which has temporarily paralyzed the right side of his face.
In a video on Instagram, Bieber told his fans about the diagnosis as he could be seen struggling to blink, smile or move his right nostril. The singer told fans the diagnosis was the reason he had to postpone the start of his North American “Justice” tour.
In a follow-up message, Bieber said he was having trouble eating.
He is currently doing facial exercises to get his face back to normal but didn’t say how long that would take or when his tour would start.
Ramsay Hunt Syndrome happens when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near a person’s ear.
