JAustin Bieber has shockingly revealed that he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which leaves him paralyzed on the right side of his face.
But this isn’t the first health issue the Canadian hitmaker has faced.
Let’s take a look at 28-year-old Justin’s history of health issues and personal battles.
RAMSAY HUNT SYNDROME
June 10 peach subscriber went to Instagram to explain why he had to postpone some recent tour dates.
He shared a short video showing one side of his face completely paralyzed as he explained, “I have a syndrome called Ramsay Hunt.”
The star said she hit a nerve in her ear, causing paralysis.
“As you can see, this eye doesn’t blink,” Justin shared, pointing to his right eye.
He continued, “That nostril doesn’t move… so there’s total paralysis on that side of my face.”
“It’s pretty serious, as you can see,” the artist said, admitting that his fans were “disappointed” by the show’s “cancellation.”
“I need to rest so that my face is where it should be…” he added.
Justin revealed that he is working on facial exercises to get better.
In January 2020, Justin revealed that he was battling Lyme disease.
The disease can be transmitted to humans by infected ticks and causes symptoms such as fatigue, pain and loss of energy that can last for years.
Justin broke the news again via Instagram, writing, “While a lot of people kept saying Justin Bieber looks like shit, on meth, etc., they didn’t realize that I was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease.”
He added: “It’s been a tough couple of years, but I’m getting the right treatment to cure this hitherto incurable disease and I’ll be back and better than ever.”
Justin found that the illness had a big impact on his mental health.
He told his fans that he “struggled a lot” and “just felt very out of touch and weird.”
At the same time that he was battling Lyme disease, Justin was suffering from a “serious case” of infectious mononucleosis, commonly known as glandular fever.
In the YouTube documentary series Justin Bieber: Seasons, he spoke more about his mental health issues.
He talked about how he hit rock bottom, which left him “really, really suicidal” and “in constant pain.”
After the success of his debut album Baby and the mega-hit of the same name, Justin struggled to cope with global fame.
He said, “Being an artist can be very self-serving if you let it, because everyone is screaming for you and you have to keep coming back to ‘Why?’ Why do I sing for all these people? Is it because I want to feel good? Or to make others feel good?”
In the early stages of his career, the singer often used various illegal substances.
Justin has described his drug use as “an escape” from the pressures of fame at a young age.
In 2014, he was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida on suspicion of drunk driving a Lamborghini.
He was later released on $2,500 bail.
Justin decided to sober up as the drugs took a toll on his body and mind.
In the documentary The Four Seasons, he said: “I decided to stop because I felt, brah, I was dying.”
When he made the decision to get sober, Justin met his wife, Hailey.
They have been married since 2018.
In February 2022, Justin was forced to postpone a number of shows on his Justice World Tour after he tested positive for Covid-19.
However, he did not suffer any major symptoms and was quickly back on the road.
Justin is into skateboarding, and while he’s showing off his skills, some of the tricks have turned into painful incidents.
In 2014, he was caught on video falling onto the pavement while trying some tricks in New York.
