Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, 28, told his fans in a video a few days after the concerts were canceled that he was suffering from facial paralysis. The singer posted a nearly three-minute video on Instagram on Friday afternoon (local time) in which he talks about his Ramsay Hunt syndrome. Bieber explains that it is a viral disease that affects the nerves in his ear and face.
“You see, that eye can’t blink,” says the Grammy Award winner, his right eye staring into the camera while his left eye staring. Bieber explains that he also can’t laugh or move his nose to this side. He pulls the corner of his mouth on the left side.

“This is very serious stuff as you can see,” Bieber told his fans. He had to take a break and protect his body. He also performs exercises to restore his natural facial features. There was no timetable for returning to the stage.
Bieber’s Instagram account has received many good wishes from fans and peers, including celebrities such as Diane Keaton, Patrick Schwarzenegger, DJ Khaled, Finneas and Romeo Beckham.
Bieber has postponed several concerts from his “Justice World Tour” on Tuesday. He said in an Instagram story that he is acting on his doctor’s instructions, but without talking about his diagnosis. Recently, the singer canceled two concert dates in Las Vegas in February due to a positive Covid test. (dpa)
